The steel screen incorporates a pair of double doors, providing light and airiness. Both the door set and the new steel window are made from Clement EB24 steel sections which include double glazed, argon filled glass units. The fenestration is polyester powder painted RAL 7016 (Anthracite Grey) and features pull handles with satin stainless finish.
Vicar, Mark Harlow, said of the project: “St Paul’s Church embarked on a major refurbishment of their 60 year old building to make a warm and welcoming, adaptable space while keeping to the original architect’s ideas. A key part of the brief was to widen the entrance corridor and allow light into one end. This has all been more than achieved using Clement’s metal frame windows and doors. These have helped create an additional space for people to meet and mix. The narrow profile of the frames has allowed maximum light and visual access between the spaces, while the rhythm of the glazing bars both modernises and blends with the architecture of the main worship space.”
Architect, Tom Robbins of Pearce Bottomley Architects, commented: “We have worked with Clement on a number of projects and have been very pleased with the service we have received and the quality of their products. They supplied the steel framed glazed screen and feature window at St Paul’s Church, Ireland Wood, Leeds and we couldn’t have been happier with the result. We also specify Clement’s conservation rooflights whenever we can, as we are of the opinion that they are the best on the market.”
