Marrying the vintage charm of sliding sash windows with the very best hardware, including top of the range operating mechanisms, our hand-built uPVC windows are virtually indistinguisable from the timber windows they could be replacing.
Traditional Window Appearance
The sculpted system was created to give the window a finish and a look of elegance rarely found with uPVC windows. These curves soften the appearance of the window giving an improved aesthetic finish.
In addtion to this, the system also offers very slim profile sections in terms of the jambs, sash sections and mid-rail to recreate the appearance of a traditional sash window.
Easy To Clean
Not only are the windows designed to look stunning but they are also practical. The sliding sash windows are manufactured as standard with an inward opening tilt facility to allow cleaning of the glass and frame inside the property.
Our sliding sash windows are amongst the most thermally efficient available in the UK today. 'B' rated as standard with 'A' rated options available, you can be sure that your new windows will only help bring your energy costs down.
