Technal’s systems selected for headland home in Jersey
The project team responsible for a striking residential property in the Channel Islands used Technal’s Dualframe 75 windows and the Elegance 52 curtain wall system, supplied by Pallot Glass & Windows, to match the property’s modernist styling, as well as to provide weather performance in a very exposed situation.
Pallot, a long-time user of the systems, was awarded the contract by main contractor, Hacquoil & Cook Ltd, to supply and fit all of the glazing for the two-storey, five-bedroom Jersey home which has since been short-listed for several awards. The package included an entrance screen which combined the Elegance 52 elements with a large bespoke timber door, and a fully glazed rear elevation with balconies overlooking the gardens.
Pallot director Paul Bourke said: “Our firm has been supplying aluminium systems since the seventies and have always enjoyed good support from Technal, while the technical rep for Jersey is very successful at getting the systems on specifications with architects and developers here.
“As a result, we have used the Dualframe 75 windows and Elegance 52 systems on a wide variety of projects, including housing for the States of Jersey. The headland house was particularly striking due to its use of Elegance 52 curtain wall for the main entrance screen, rising a storey and a half, featuring a glass-to-glass joint at the corner. It is a project we are very proud of.”
