Timber Windows & Doors
Our award winning range of hand-made, timber windows, sash windows and doors, are installed with care by our trained and experienced craftsmen. They come in three distinct styles - Traditional, contemporary and Historic - making them perfect for houses of any period. Through careful design many of the age old complaints associated with wood have been eliminated; our products will not stick or twist, require very little maintenance, offer modern standards of security and significant energy savings.
Stormproof windows feature rebated openers which lip over the front face of the window frame. Our Storm proof system is packed with innovations - innovations that bring the benefits of security, warmth, warp resistance, weathering and modern double glazing performance.
The design of our vertical sliding sash window is the product of an extensive collaboration between our technicians and consultant architect to ensure that our box sash reproduces, as faithfully as possible, the simple grace of English sash windows progressively developed from early use by Wren through their peak of elegance in the late Georgian period and in common usage by the Victorians and Edwardians.
In particular, the dimensions of our sash frames, meeting rails and glazing bars have been made slim, with traditional mouldings subtly modified to suit modern construction technology.
To carry the extra weight of double-glazed units, our sliding sashes are hung on tradional cords retaining the long proven reliability of simple counterbalance weights.
Quadruple draught strips stop rattles, and extremely high insulation (1.1W/m2K) glazing units minimise heat loss and down draughts. Multi-layer timber and very careful attention to detail, minimise the swelling and warping that causes jamming on windows of lesser quality during wet weather.
Flush casement windows are characterised by openers that close into the frame and finish flush with the face of the window. Our challenge has been to make flush casement windows which look simple but are actually quite sophisticated. Some details, like our decorative butt hinges, are merely to reinforce the illusion of simplicity. Hidden away is modern technology: warp resistant timber, locks which engage in multiple points around the perimeter of every opener, ventilation grooves, drainage channels and glazing units which lose approximately half the heat of ordinary double glazing.
A traditional single glazed box sash for use where double glazing is not suitable. Designed for replacement of originals in existing buildings particularly windows in listed properties. Sectional sizes and details reflect many years of experience in the manufacture of windows for sensitive buildings. We offer a choice of profiles that will suit most circumstances (including Georgian, Gothic, Victorian and Queen Anne designs) but can also offer a premium bespoke profile service when needed. Weatherstripping is fitted but due to the traditional nature of the product it is not as comprehensive as other sash products in our range. The sashes are hung on a traditional corded and weighted operation with brass pulley wheels. Glazing uses authentic hand face putty with 4mm thick clear single glass with an option of hand-made antique glasses to complete the look.
