Slim Frame Sections
In order to optimise glass areas and to retain period styling, The Traditional Range utilises slim frame sections.
Our flush casements retain traditional design whilst packing in all the modern benefits of weather proofing, security & energy efficiency. This includes larger rebates to accommodate double or triple glazing, draught sealing and high security multi-point locking hardware. As with all our windows the timber used is multi-layered, engineered timber and as standard the windows are double glazed with argon filled 24mm units (Ug value of 1.1W/m2K).
We manufacture two styles of flush casement, the performance window which has a higher spec in that it is able to house triple glazing and accept aluminium cladding and our conservation window which has very unique styling that you will not find anywhere else.
The slim line sashes are set back in the moulded frame which enhances the appearance of the windows and adds to the design of your property. With doors to match our conservation windows are unmatched for beauty and quality.

Tilt & Turn Windows
Our tilt and turn casement option has been developed & tested to meet Passiv Haus Standard. If you are requiring optimum performance this is the solution you require.
This window combines perfect performance parameters and a very low heat transfer coefficient. The overall heat transfer coefficient value for the test window achieved Uw = 0,8 W/m2K, which means that the window can be used for high performance eco house construction.
The design also provides increased acoustic performance which insulates 34-db as standard with an option to sound insulate up to 42-db with enhanced glazing options.
High performance German WINKHAUS Tilt & turn hinges fitted to allow for maximum performance and durability. The tilt position allows the window to hinge from the bottom and partially open for ventilation and the turn allows the window to fully open from the side. Locking handles are fitted as standard in a range of finishes. A concealed ventilation system can be incorporated for compliance with Part L. Our high performance paints and stains will maximise the life of your windows allowing maximum duration between maintenance. Unlike re-painting in the past the re-application of finish does not require laborious scraping and sanding. Modern micro-porous paint systems allow the timber to breathe preserving the integrity of the wood. When the time comes a light sanding over the window will provide a key to reapply the top coat.

About UsOur design team, working both traditionally and with the latest computer modelling techniques are at your disposal for that special item for which a supplier might be difficult to find. Our methods are straightforward yet thorough. We work in many dimensions when approaching a conceptual design, not merely "lenght, breadth and depth": the element of time is integral to any joinery construction. How long will it last? What is the likely maintenance schedule? What materials might age most sympathetically with the item`s surroundings? Thought is also devoted to another important factors, e.g. how would the item best be transported to site? What is the least disruptive and most simple method of installation?
