Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd completed a prestigious new build waterside residential development, Q Apartments, at Tanners Wharf, Bishop Stortford.  Sales of the units which include 2 & 3 bedroom apartments and luxury penthouses exceeded all expectations, appealing to first time buyers, investors and airline personnel working at nearby Stansted Airport. The re-development of the area has been welcomed by the local residents as it now replaces a derelict site of unfinished buildings.

Comar 5P.i open-out and tilt & turn windows, with Comar 7P.i rebated doors were selected for the apartments with Comar 7P.i AFT Commercial Doors for the main entrances.

For safety, the Comar 7P.i AFT Commercial Doors were fitted with Anti-Finger Trap stiles which were hung directly from the Comar 6 curtain walling. Polyamide Insulated (P.i) window and door systems provide exceptional thermal performance in a market where energy efficient designs and meeting the demands of the latest building regulations are paramount. Comar 7 door sets are a natural choice for any busy environment and are available in swing, pivot, sliding, auto-sliding and sliding folding.

For the sleek modern facade, Comar 6 stick build/step cut curtain walling was specified. Comar 6 curtain walling is a versatile thermally efficient system designed to integrate panels and glass.

of different widths into the facade with special profiles to include opening vents and doors. Comar 6 offers a slim 50mm sight line with a multitude of transoms and mullions to cater for all deflection loads and grid centres. The design of Comar 6 makes it ideal for complex facetted curtain walls as well as sheer glazed facades.
