    Joules Brewery

    Ventrolla, the window renovation specialist, has upgraded and renovated sash windows at a former brewery in Stone, Staffordshire.

    “It is great to have restored these spectacular period windows to their former glory, while at the same time improving the overall energy efficiency of the building.”



    A total of 18 original sash windows have been renovated at the grade 1 listed building which dates back to the 1850s and was originally the home of the Joules Brewery.  Today it is the headquarters of MG Sanders, a specialist precision engineering company that services the Pharmaceutical, Defence Aerospace and Motorsport sectors.

    Ventrolla Staffs and Salop were called in during the initial planning stage to carry out a full survey and advise on how best to approach the window renovation.  It was important to retain the character and original look of the building by renovating the existing wooden sash windows, especially as it is considered to be a local landmark.

    The windows were upgraded using the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS), which has been tested to 600 Pa, which is equivalent to winds of 71 mph, and achieves Class 3 of BS 6375-1

    The Ventrolla system comes in two parts. Firstly, the window is renovated so that it operates correctly, and any damaged timber is repaired, then secondly the unique Perimeter Sealing System is installed which eradicates rattles and minimises draughts,.

    Managing Director for Ventrolla Staff and Salop, Tony Dee, said: “This was quite an unusual project in that one of the windows is situated over the canal so we had to use a tug boat to carry out some of the work.

    “It is great to have restored these spectacular period windows to their former glory, while at the same time improving the overall energy efficiency of the building.”

    With its national headquarters in Harrogate, Yorkshire, Ventrolla was established in 1986 and operates via a national network of offices.
