Silver Kite was given a brief to supply fittings for the windows as part of the refurbishment of a luxury penthouse in Lithuania. Purpose-made door stops were also required to protect the doors.

Windows

The windows were new, and included very wide fanlights. The solution to operate these fanlights was to make special double quadilent stays. Working closely with the joinery contractor Silver Kite was able to ensure that there was going to be enough timber to fix these.

Silver Kite made wooden poles with pole hooks to operate the stays, and also supplied storage hooks to hold these poles in place by the windows. As Silver Kite hand-turns wooden components for their Arbor range, supplying these poles was easy to do.

The casement windows were secured using espagnolette bolts from the company;s Classic range, and sliding stays were used to hold the windows in their open position.

Doors

New doors were installed throughout, and the client was concerned about holding these in their open position. The solution was to use Silver Kite's door stop / holders, but to supply them with larger rubber buffers, which could be cut down on site. In this way the doors could be held snugly open.

The large entrance door had a significant gap under it when in the open position and a door stop had to be designed to deal with this. A wall-mounted door stop could not be used, therefore Silver Kite made a special plinth for its 39001 floor-mounted door stop.
