R7 windows and doors from The Residence Collection were recently supplied by their manufacturing partner, Frametrade and installed by The Nottingham Window Company at Graysford Hall, a new luxury care home in the suburbs of Leicester.

The project involved the installation of 130 R7 windows and 30 R7 doors with a Painswick exterior and a clean Chalk White internal finish. Both top and side hung windows with opening restrictors featured throughout, along with open in and open out doors, featuring a sash mullion for architectural detailing.

R7 was specified on the project for its premium finish, energy efficiency credentials and enhanced security. Glass specifications were double glazed units with 6.8mm laminated glass, warm edge spacer bar and argon gas, along with Kenrick hardware.

Ian Newcombe, sales and marketing director of both Frametrade and The Nottingham Window Company commented: ‘The client was in firm agreement that R7 would be the perfect window and door solution for the Graysford Hall project with a flush finish inside and out. The overall window and door designs look premium as does the performance of these products and we’re thrilled with the end result.’

Sarah Hitchings, sales and marketing director of The Residence Collection added: ‘Most people think of The Residence Collection as a purely retail-orientated brand, when in fact our product specifications are perfectly suited to the commercial market. R7 is the perfect choice and with 7 chambers and 7 different substrates, it’s a product platform packed with unique features.’
