Aberdeen Wharf Wapping

Converted warehouse into luxury living with Selectaglaze secondary glazing

Private Individual

Working with Absolute Project Management, an interior design and project management company, on a luxury residential unit in a converted warehouse; four acoustic secondary glazed units were installed to seamlessly blend in with the internal architectural features creating a quieter and more comfortable living space. With views over the Thames one side, and overlooking Wapping Rose Gardens on the high street, the resident wanted extra peace and quiet, as London itself is a noisy city. The original single glazed metal framed windows did little to provide acoustic insulation and were thermally inefficient. Four windows were identified as requiring secondary glazing; one of which was facing internally into the building foyer. The Series 10 2-pane horizontal sliders were specified for three of the windows and a smaller one treated with a Series 30 lift-out – Absolute chose fluted glass to provide privacy and as an additional aesthetic enhancement. To complement the black framed primary windows and to contrast with the exposed brick work, the secondary glazing was powder coated in a matt slate grey (RAL 7015). Glazed with 6.8mm laminated glass and installed with a 150mm-200mm cavity, the noise insulation has been improved, as well as increasing heat insulation. One of the openings required splayed timbers and crafting on site by the installation team, to ensure a tight fit was created to maximum the benefits and performance levels. Since this project was completed the Series 30 has been superceeded by the Series 31 lift-out.
