Based in Baildon, Glen Nursing Home underwent the construction of a new extension. This extension is to create a communal seating area for the residents to enjoy just in time for the summer months.

D.C. Liptrot won the tender to build the extension for Glen Nursing Home and entrusted Crucial on behalf of the curtain walling and aluminium windows. This involved both our aluminium and glazing teams who fell hand in hand on this project. As this was a new build it mean this job included fabricating and installing from scratch.

The intended look was fresh and welcoming from the inside whilst being sleek and modern from the exterior. The aesthetics of this project were important as it is needed to match the already prestige building.


The Crucial team partnered with Exlabesa for the use of the following products, KLW Curtain Walling System, KSF Commercial Door System and KC75 Window System, these products were then powder coated in RAL 7016 which is a stunning dark grey to give the clean look that was intended.

The curtain walling was used all the way around the extension to bring more light to the interior to brighten the space and showcase the exceptional view of the surrounding area. This also means stunning lighting during the summer and a cosy view whilst staying warm in the colder months.

We were able to manufacture all the glass used on this project inhouse at Crucial. The glazed unit’s are anti sun, toughened glass forming a 28mm double glazed unit. We used anti sun glass tinted grey to eliminate glare from the sun whilst still letting enough light in to feel bright.
