A sensitive steel window restoration preserves the character of this delightful 1930s home

Clement Windows Group

Not surprisingly the owners of this property wanted double glazing but it was essential that the look of their character house was retained. Clement EB24 steel windows have been conceived to do just that so they were chosen as the best replacement product for this project. The 24mm double glazed unit had 18mm marginal oval leads applied skilfully to the inside and outside of the outer pane to replicate the unique leaded light look but creating a much more thermally efficient window. The frame colour was matched with RAL 9010 white, complemented with dark bronze effect handles and peg stays.

An exclusive residential development in Hambledon, Surrey, is making use of 12mm Magply boards, supplied by Elliotts Builders Merchants, as the carrier for a proprietar sprayed render system, as one


The stylish three and four bedroom, two-storey properties present a traditional outward appearance, with clay roof tiles above the elevations of handmade bricks and highly weatherproof K-Rend panels. The latter is applied to the 12mm Magply modified MgO boards, screwed to 50x50mm timbers fixed at 600mm centres across the SIPS structure. Simon, the site foreman for Fullers Plastering, commented: “ This is the second time I have used Magply, Fullers having made the switch because it is an easier board to cut and fix, while it also takes the HP12 base coat very well.”

A development by Emerson Properties of two and three bedroom terraced homes on a brownfield site in South London is making use of Magply boards’ fire resistance and other physical benefits.


The Project Manager for White Haus, Tony Buck, commented: “We offer clients a bespoke service for the supply and installation of high performance timber frames to meet various specifications – right up to PassivHaus standard – building schools, hospitals and commercial premises as well as domestic properties. Although these structures aren’t within the designated five metre distance of existing buildings, the client (Emerson Properties) wanted the additional protection provided by a fire rated sheathing board – in addition to fire rated timber cladding – and we are using 9mm Magply boards on the outside of the timber frames. “

A high rise development in Bournemouth for Fresh Student Living is making full use of the technical benefits to an innovative BBA approved structural walling system, which features 9mm Magply boards.


The MIB MetSIP is robustly engineered, with 75 mm deep cold-formed steel Sigma studs – plus a 45mm treated timber packer – at 600mm centres. 9mm thick Magply modified MgO boards form the inner and outer skins to the 136mm thick panels. Magply is largely unaffected by prolonged exposure to rain, while under independent testing, the material was shown to achieve 90 minutes fire resistance with minimal smoke generation. This means during the critical erection phase, before fire-stopping breaks and other permanent protection can be installed, the structure is far less vulnerable to arson or an accidental blaze.

Dublin Apartments, the performance benefits to Magply boards have been utilised in the specification of an advanced offsite system being employed in the construction of a new apartment building.


The five storey building is being clad across different elevations with either the Permarock exterior wall insulation system or the Dutch manufactured Brickworld brick slip system. Both are on Rockwool material fixed to an outside layer of 9mm Magply sheathing which also provides an additional 1 hour fire protection to the structure from the outside. : “Overall the Magply is easy to cut and fix, while as an MgO product it can get wet as many times as you want. That helps with programme timing while the price-point also makes it very affordable compared to other fire safe products'.
