Social housing specialist The Sekura Group has just completed the manufacture and installation of 133 windows for a refurbishment project in the Doxford Park area of Sunderland. When it came to the hardware for the project, The Sekura Group worked with its longstanding hardware supply partner, Carl F Groupco.
Derek Sumner, Installation Manager at The Sekura Group commented: “We work on many projects like this one in Doxford Park. We also have ongoing framework agreements and responsive maintenance contracts with local authorities and housing associations across the region. It means we need to work with supply partners we can rely on. When it comes to hardware, Carl F Groupco delivers that reliability, as well as exceptional quality and value for money.”
The Doxford Park project involved work on high-rise properties in the Lofthill, Padonhill and Preston Hill areas. It was part of a £210m investment in the North East by housing association Bernicia. It involved the like-for-like replacement of fully reversible and fixed pane windows and included the manufacture of 532 sashes.
The hardware selected for the project was the Roto FRH UNI Top Swing Reversible system and the Roto TSL Espagnolette.
The robust Roto FRH UNI Top Swing Reversible system has been designed with multi-storey public and commercial buildings and high-rise domestic applications in mind. It is ideal for situations in which safe control of the opening is necessary.
The Roto TSL Espagnolette has been designed to provide a high level of security for outward opening windows, with specific protection against jemmying.
Derek commented: “Carl F Groupco is one of the industry’s major stockists of Roto hardware and these two products combine the durability, longevity and price point projects of this nature demand.”
