Wooden Sash Windows
Our installers can not only offer PVC-U options, but they can also supply you with solid wood windows, using oak, hard woods or softwood.
Being a natural material, there is the chance that solid timber can sometimes twist and move over time. Warped timber destroys any weather performance and sash windows rely upon precision manufacturing and touching brush seals to retain thermal efficiency and eliminate draughts.
You can have the choice of two Bygone ranges; the traditional timber sash window hung on weights and pulleys or balanced timber sash windows hung on spiral metal balances that also allow an easy cleaning option.
As an alternative to wood, the following three PVC-U ranges each have our standard grained, laminated, acrylic foil in either white or cream. Additional colours can be added into the surface creating a long lasting bonded paint finish.
Our premiere sash window for when only the very best will do. Wood grained, acrylic foiled with every joint traditionally “butt jointed” construction providing the perfect appearance.
A rated as standard and because we use 16mm sealed units, filled with Krypton gas we have designed two exclusive sections to add real depth and authenticity to these Bygone sash windows. The internal glazing bar is deeper than standard bars while the external chamfered bar aligns with the traditional putty glazed appearance. The deeper internal beads allow additional hardware choices to be fitted.
You also have a choice of designs for the external and internal sash horns that are a standard feature, along with deep bottom rails and equal glazing patterns.
Again, A rated but nothing else is standard about this range. Identical profiles (bars) are used on our premiere product including the deeper glazing bars, bead and thin Krypton filled sealed units. The only exception is that the deep bottom rail and sash horns joints are butt jointed; the others are mitred.
While the standard features of deep bottom rail and equal glazing patterns are included, the external and internal sash horns are chargeable options.
For clients who appreciate the quality that Bygone offers, but are unable to justify investing in the Harmony or Melody collections. Or for those who seek to install Bygone windows, with Bygone furniture only at the rear or sides of a building, keeping the premiere windows on the important facades.
Most of the joints are mitred and as the glazing is C rated 24mm argon units the thinner glazing bar and beads are used.
Whilst the standard features of deep bottom rail and equal glazing patterns are included, the external and internal sash horns are chargeable options.
