FLUSH CASEMENT WINDOWS
Traditional style with clean lines across the face of the windows
Similar in operation to the Stormproof casement timber window, the key difference is that the sash fits flush with the frame rather than overlapping it. This type of timber window can be found right across the country but we've brought the design right up-to-date with energy-efficient glazing, excellent weather seals, security hinges and multi-point locking systems.
These windows are double glazed, as standard, with low-emissivity glass, warm-edge spacer bar and insulating argon gas between the panes to give Window Energy Rating (WER) A. They can be triple-glazed for even better thermal performance and a WER of A+. They are also available with single-glazing or narrow, heritage style double glazing for conservation areas and listed buildings.
Using modern construction techniques and fully draught-sealed all round, these timber windows have been independently tested in extreme wind conditions and survived wind pressures equivalent to the highest wind speed recorded in Britain making them the equal of Stromproof windows in terms of weather performance.
With multi-point locking, this timber window meets and exceeds the British Standard for security BS7950 and carries the Secured-By-Design seal of approval from the Association of Chief Police Officers.
The addition of modern performance enhancements does not mean that the traditional appearance has been compromised. The option of a variety of different transom drips, frame extensions and cill depths means that we can replicate just about any existing window.
Also available are a range of different hinge options, including working or dummy butt-hinges, a wide choice of traditional and contemporary handles and casement stays along with the option for Georgian glazing bars and variety of different traditional leading patterns.
For those that want to retain the originality of their existing windows we can recover the decorative leaded fanlight glass and incorporate into the new frames.
Flush Casement Reversible Windows
The Flush Casement can also be fitted with Top Hung Reversible hinges. These allow the window to open from the bottom like a top-hung window but to also be turned through 180 degrees if required. As the lower part of the sash is pushed further out, so the top-rail moves down the frame. At a point where the sash has been pushed so that it is horizontal, the top-rail will have travelled half its height down the frame. By continuing to move the top-rail down, the sash turns so that the outer surface is facing the room. This allows the windows to be easily cleaned from inside whilst the clever hinge mechanism allows the sash to rotate outside the envelope of the building so there's no need to clear window cills and remove blinds.
