Titon has supplied over 370 Sobinco Chrono aluminium tilt and turn window systems as part of the new Motel One project in Glasgow. Situated next to Glasgow Central Station at the junction of Oswald Street, Motel One Glasgow has 374 rooms spread over 13 floors, making it one of the largest – and tallest – in Scotland.
The new hotel was designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects and built by Ogilvie Construction, while the windows were fabricated by another Glasgow-based company, Marshall Brown Limited.
Commenting on the decision to use Titon’s window hardware, Brian Ross, Commercial Manager at Marshall Brown (Windows) Limited, said: “We have used Titon on many projects over the years, as we have an excellent relationship with the company. The Sobinco Chrono range was perfect for the Motel One Glasgow project, as the product is robust, reliable, easy to fabricate and maintain. All these features were ideal for use in a hotel environment.
Sobinco Chrono fast-fit hinge and locking systems are suitable for most aluminium link bar profiles. They are suitable for virtually all variations of open-in window, with options available for high-security and French casement. A standard tilt and turn units can be assembled in around five minutes, greatly reducing fabrication time, while a choice of handle designs and attractive RAL colour finishes are also available.
Titon has been the exclusive UK distributor for Sobinco for nearly 40 years, supplying tilt and turn window systems, pivots, catches and handles, as well as locks, lift-slide systems, roller assemblies and handles for doors.
