Many buildings have been subject to inappropriate window replacements that have ruined the character and look of the property. Our windows enable you to install new windows that blend into their surroundings – city or countryside, commercial or residential. Our heritage vertical sliding sash windows are perfect for conservation or traditional projects, a classic look with modern advantages.
Sculptured Georgian bars, sash horns, two sliding sashes and a choice of hardware, together with a selection of beautiful finishes, all add to the traditional feel of these beautiful windows.
Choose from the classic White PVCu, or a range of options including Golden Oak, Cherrywood, Irish Oak, Cream and White woodgrains, see page 10 for full options.
Safe and secure with a beautiful finish.
Peace of mind and security
Our vertical sliding sash windows have been designed with not only elegance and authenticity in mind, but security too. Vertical sliding sash windows are fully reinforced, not only to prevent deflection in windy weather, but also to strengthen the sashes so that they are capable of carrying the weight of the glass and provide a strong secure fixing for handles, latches and other components.
The balances maintain the equilibrium of the sash window at all points of travel and robust locking devices ensure the security of your home.
Our vertical sliding sash windows come with the CMS Gold Licence for security. The gold licence is the result of a complete security testing package that ensures we are fully compliant with PAS24:2012.
SBD focuses on crime prevention of homes and commercial premises and promotes the use of security standards for a wide range of applications and products, including windows and doors.
Please note that the ‘Secured By Design’ specification is not standard and must be requested as part of the window specification.
Easy maintenance and cleaning.
No more sanding and painting
You can now avoid the need for costly cleaning chemicals, varnish and paints. Manufactured using the latest modern materials, your new windows will not rot, flake or peel. Your new windows will simply require an occasional wipe down with a damp cloth.
The PVCu vertical sliding sash windows not only slide up and down like traditional windows, but tilt inwards so that the panes can be accessed making it easy to clean your windows from the inside.
Energy efficient and environmentally friendly
Recyclable, lead-free and energy saving
Today’s window designers have far more challenges than previous generations. Not only do they need to design windows to withstand the elements, but they have to consider the environmental impact too.
Our windows are not only lead-free, but also carry an ‘A’ energy rating as standard, with Low-E double glazed units to keep the heat in, and help reduce your heating bills. The windows also have brush seals around the openings for exceptional draught proofing. Choosing PVCu is an environmentally friendly choice, as the majority of end of life PVCu windows can be recycled over and over again to produce new windows.
By purchasing our vertical sliding sash windows you are not only keeping your home warm all year round and reducing your heating bills, but also helping the environment.
