These maintenance free traditional looking windows operate in the same way as the original timber designs but offer a much more secure and energy efficient solution – while achieving the same look as seen on may period and character properties. They can also be provided in a range of coloured and wood grain effect finishes.
The look is often completed with the addition of a ‘face fix’ Georgian bar – replicating the original style – down to the incorporation of a duplex bar within the glass units to give the effect of individual panes within the frame.
Traditional timber sliding sash windows look great on period properties, but they can require alot of maintenance and be difficult and bulky to handle, not to mention the draughts they may well be letting in.
Harveys are now pleased to be able to offer maintenance free traditional looking UPVC sliding sash windows, that operate in the same way as the original timber designs. The windows slide up and down, and are securely held in place with a counter balancing mechanism. The windows can also be opened into a tilt position to offer safe access for cleaning.
This product offers a secure and energy efficient solution. The three chambered system maximises thermal efficiency, especially when coupled with our A rated glass units with warm edge spacer bar and argon fill. These windows can be manufactured to meet the police preferred security initiative BS7950.
The windows we supply all have travel restrictors included so you can securely maintain ongoing ventilation with either the top window pulled down or the bottom pulled up slightly.
The sculptured designed frames, with low sightline glazing, together with the high quality brass or chrome fittings and sculptured detailing (eg sash horns) all add up to a superb looking quality finish offering all the benefits of a upvc system, with the traditional look of timber.
These windows are available at an economical price (compared to timber), while achieving the same look as seen on may period and character properties. They can also be provided in a range of coloured and wood grain effect finishes, all of which are fully guaranteed for 10 years.
