Kloeber glazing on an oak frame self build

This oak framed barn-style build in Hertfordshire showcases everything that is good about the partnership between Kloeber, PJT Design, PJT Custom Build and Oakwrights.

Long before the project began on site, we worked closely with Pete Tonks from PJT Design, attending numerous meetings to discuss the detailing of the project and the specification of the doors and windows.

This ensured we were all working together to satisfy planning restrictions, the design brief and of course the expectations of customers, Johnny and Jane Jones.

Kloeber carried out two site visits prior to the installation to discuss technical details and measure the apertures ensuring everything would fit perfectly.

To successfully install aluminium frames directly into oak, our fitting teams had to use adjustable fixings. They also used a Passivhaus standard sealing method using expanding insulation tape and foam which would flex and move with the oak over time.

The KustomSlide Mono sliding doors that were being installed had enormous pieces of glass which were delivered directly to site on the day of installation. They were then carefully lifted, by hand, into place after the frames had been installed.

KL70W aluminium windows were fitted into the timber frame carefully making sure everything was plumb, level and set back to allow for the agreed cladding detail. Once installed, the glass was toe and heeled to ensure smooth operation. The job was finished off with a Hamburg style FunkyFront timber entrance door which complemented the wood clad exterior.

Johnny Jones commented, ‘Matt and the Kloeber team provided a first class service with first class products. The attention to detail was matched equally by the quality of their work and speed of installation. It was a pleasure to have them on site and the end result is stunning’.
