Solarlux has exceeded the expectations of residents at The Prom Apartments New Brighton – a new luxury housing development in Merseyside.
The luxury development has stunning, far reaching coastal views but as such is exposed to the elements, including very high wind speeds. The request by The Neptune Group was for a glazing solution which matched the high-end feel of the development, this meant secure systems which didn’t rattle, offered extensive noise reduction and also protected the building – and its residents – from the elements, whilst allowing full enjoyment of the spectacular views of the Mersey estuary.
The SL 25 XXL glazing solution chosen for The Prom Apartments, Town Square, New Brighton is a further development of the SL 25. It is fitted with a carriage that can bear up to 65kg in weight, which mechanically secures tempered safety glass up to 15mm thick. This makes it ideal for use on balconies and highly exposed locations as it exceeds all the relevant increased wind loading requirements, whilst also providing a quiet living space due to its significant noise reduction. This frameless glazing system offers full protection against adverse weather conditions and when the glass panels are 100 per cent open, they also offer a full outdoor experience. The SL 25 XXL was chosen to provide residents with full protection from the elements during inclement weather but to allow natural light to flood through the property on sunnier days, bringing a homely warmth to relax and unwind in.
Martijn Venema, Managing Sales Director at Solarlux, said: “The SL25XXL is specifically designed to welcome the atmosphere into buildings; this is obviously a particular selling point when the properties enjoy such stunning views of the Mersey Estuary. It is also able to exceed expectations for such a challenging and exposed location which can experience numerous weather fronts across short periods.”
Solarlux also contributed significantly to the design manufacture and fitting of the bespoke balcony balustrades incorporating enhanced strength wind posts to support the substantial structural loadings, whilst remaining an elegant feature. The use of this bespoke SL45 system offers added value to residents of The Prom Apartments, providing an exceptionally safe outdoor lifestyle and allowing true appreciation of the stunning coastal views.
Daniel Hynd, Project Manager of the development, said: “The area has been transformed into a top leisure destination in the Wirral, enjoying superb local facilities, an easy commute to Liverpool and a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere, the addition of the brand new homes just shows what a great place New Brighton is to live and visit.”
