Case Studies

View some of the projects we have manufactured and installed in Scotland.

Aluminium Roof Lantern enhances refurbished Flat Development

The existing single glazed timber Lantern Roof was rotten and had started to leak. The developers were delighted when Stag Aluminium was able to design and manufacture a replacement in Aluminium with double glazed units. An opening vent was included in the design, operated via an Electric Opener, for ease of ventilation.


Draughty wooden windows replaced with modern Aluminium

Double glazed aluminium windows with slim sightlines were chosen by this school, to replace the existing draughty wooden windows. Trickle vents were included in the design to allow for a small amount of ventilation when the windows are closed, they will help to reduce the forming of condensation on the windows.


Like-for-like replacements for traditional steel windows

When replacing traditional steel windows in this school building, it was important to maintain the heritage aesthetics. Stag Aluminium's windows with a slim 59mm sightline were the ideal choice. The windows are fitted with energy efficient double glazing and meet PAS 24 security to ensure the building remains secure.


Replacing Vertical Sliding Windows at University

The existing single glazed Vertical Sliding Windows on the top floor of this building were in need of replacement as they were draughty and rattled in the wind. Rather than replace with Vertical Sliding Windows, Aluminium Casement Windows with a toughened fixed pane at the bottom and a top hung sash at the top were manufactured. As you can see from the photo, the new windows on the top floor closely match the existing which are yet to be replaced on the floor below.


New Fire Exit Door fitted in a school

When the curtain walling was replaced at the side of this school, a new Fire Exit Door was also fitted, which can be used by pupils and teachers everyday as well as being a means for a quick and un-hindered escape in case of emergency. A hold open closer was fitted to the door, designed to keep the door open when opened beyond 110 degrees and a simple push of the door will start to close the door slowly. Stag Aluminium's Fire Exit Doors have a 15mm low threshold, which is DDA compliant and meet PAS24 Security Standards.


Low rise Curtain Walling with opening sashes

Black Aluminium Low-Rise Curtain Walling was chosen for this project. It was externally glazed with laminated glass for additional security and depending on the requirements of individual projects, this system can accommodate glazing units ranging from 6mm to 36mm. Curtain Walling provides excellent thermal efficiency, having been Independently Weather Performance Tested to BS 6375-1. Another advantage of this system is that it can be fully suited with our Commercial Entrance Doors and Residential Door systems in a wide range of RAL colours and finishes.


Marine Grade Powder Coating

High Rise Curtain Walling and a four pane set of Aluminium Sliding Doors allow customers a panoramic view across the Ayrshire Coastline. Being close to the shoreline, a Marine Grade Powder Coating was specified. Powder coating protects the Aluminium from the elements such as Saltwater, Air and Sunshine as long as it is correctly maintained. The frequency of cleaning Marine Grade powder coating depends on factors such as the proximity to the shoreline and exposure to debris, such as sand or salt, which may cause erosive wear.


Commercial Double Doors suitable for Office

Designing the commercial entrance to BUPA's offices involved giving consideration to the overall aesthetics of the building, security, energy efficiency and ensuring that there was an effective clear width to allow for wheelchair access. With the entrance being on the ground floor in a moderately exposed area, Aluminium Commercial Pivot Doors were an ideal choice. The Double Doorset can be manufactured up to 2300mm wide by 2300mm high and with the addition of Aluminium fixed side panels and top light, the overall width and height created a really grand entrance.


Art Deco Windows fitted in Stone built property

Replacing the windows in a beautiful stone built cottage in Derbyshire required a lot of thought. Whilst the existing windows were White, the homeowner made a bold decision to replace with dual colour Aluminium windows with a retro look, which were Black outside and White inside. Art Deco windows were chosen as they meet PAS24 security and feature a slim 59mm sightline, coupled with excellent thermal efficiency to keep the cottage warm.


Reg Vardy Shopfront

Aesthetics, easy access and security were all high on the list of requirements when designing the facade for Reg Vardy's Car Showroom. Aluminium Curtain Walling was specified for it's robustness and durability, coupled with a slim profile, fitted with safety laminated glass to allow plenty of natural light to flood inside. A low threshold was fitted to the doors to allow customers easier access.To ensure the building remained secure, all of the doors were fitted with multi-point locks and security hardware, meeting PAS24:2016 security standards.


Replacing steel windows

The existing steel windows in a beautiful house in Ayrshire, with their slim sightlines and leaded glass were charming and suited the style of the building, but they were draughty and showing signs of rust. Stag Aluminium carried out a survey, then manufactured and installed a bespoke Bay Window with an external cill to allow the rainwater to run off. This required the skills of a local Blacksmith, who welded the cill to fit perfectly. Triple glazing was specified with the grid lead fitted to the middle pane, to protect the lead from the wind, rain and snow. The inner and outer panes of glass were flat, for ease of cleaning.


Finger guards for Aluminium doors

The new Fast Food premises in Fife anticipated having high levels of traffic through their doors, which meant that easy access and safety were high on the list of priorities. Low rise Aluminium Curtain Walling was manufactured to include double doors with full height tubular handles. Anti-finger traps were installed between the door sash and frame for added protection. For security, double hook locks were fitted to the doors and each of the glass units were double glazed with laminated security units. When the premises are closed, they are protected with concealed electrical shutters.


Ayr Racecourse

The Corporate Hospitality boxes at Ayr Racecourse offer views of the Racecourse through 3.6 metre wide Aluminium Sliding Doors, manufactured and installed by Stag Aluminium.Clear double glazed toughened glass was fitted to comply with Safety Glass Regulations, which states that all glazed doors within 1500mm from the floor level, must be fitted with Toughened Glass.Being close to the Sea a Marine Grade powder coating was applied to the Aluminium to offer greater protection from the elements.


Upgrading existing single glazed steel windows

The existing single glazed steel windows in this property were draughty and it was time to replace them. Modern Steel windows with double glazing and Georgian bars were chosen, with slim aluminium sightlines to closely resemble the original windows. As they were double glazed, they offer greater heat retention and sound insulation.


Springvale Nursery

Glazed Aluminium Fire Exit Doors were fitted with panic bars, making it possible to quickly unlock a door during an emergency situation. The system specified for this project was Metal Technology’s System 9 & 10 Commercial Doors and Systems 4-20 Casement windows. Each door and window was fitted with Double Glazed safety glass which, if broken, creates pebble like pieces without any sharp edges.
