Leading joinery manufacturer, Scotts of Thrapston, is showcasing a range of luxury bespoke doors and period windows as part of this year’s Listed Property Show at Olympia.
Scotts, a recognised leading supplier of timber doors, sliding sash and casement windows, has recently undertaken several complex restoration projects using a range of specialist timber and bespoke joinery products.
A key project included the renewal of all internal doors to a Grade I listed building that was taken on by one of the UK’s largest builders of retirement homes.
Brett Goldsmith, joinery sales manager, said: “We are currently producing over 70 like-for-like doors and frames. These are being replaced and renewed to keep in-line with the original detailing and design of the 150-year-old property.
“Any internal doors that were beyond repair were removed, carefully measured and photographed before being replaced with solid Tulip timber linings, whilst the doors had replica mouldings and beadings specially machined with timber profile cutters to produce style-perfect replacements.
“Projects such as this one allow Scotts to showcase their expertise. With nearly one hundred years’ worth of experience in the business, Scotts can now meet just about any specification and exceed expectations.”
Scotts has also been chosen for their expertise on restoration work for the biggest primary school within London.
Tasked with replacing like-for-like sliding sash windows, Scotts’ expert joiners used Sapele hardwood, (a straight grain, dense hardwood) to create a striking finish.
Careful consideration was given to the weight of the unit to take into account the lead weight and pulley mechanism for the slim, double glazed window.
It was also imperative that the design of the windows contained thermal properties that would adhere to compulsory modern building regulations.
Scotts is now just one of a handful of companies that has the specialist skills required to replicate doors, frames and windows within listed properties and in-line with current building and fire safety regulations.
