Great Thornton Street Flats, Hull This refurbishment project comprising two 14-storey residential tower blocks was completed in 2007 and included a full programme of window and balcony door replacement to all flats and communal areas and ground floor entrance screens with fully automatic sliding doors. The Sapafront 1105 window system was developed in Scandinavia and has one of the highest thermal (Uf) values available. It was also chosen for its outstanding test performance in air permeability (600 Pa), watertightness (600 Pa) and wind load (3600 Pa). In addition, the frames fully reversible operation reduces future maintenance costs by allowing the cleaning and/or replacement of glass units from inside the building in all non-balcony areas.
