Our flush casement windows can be made of high quality timber of which approximate characteristics is shown aside.
PINE – a soft wood white or pale yellow timber. light weight and straight grained. it is the most popular timber occurring in Europe. it is not as dense as hardwood but resists shrinking and swelling very well
MERANTI -a hard wood which comes from Southeast Asia. it has relatively good outdoor durability and strength. can be found in low-lying rain forests in mountainous regions. comparing cost effectiveness it offers best option for hardwood
OAK – a hard wood that can be found in most countries of Europe. prefer dry soil rather than damp areas. comparing to meranti it is slightly stronger
Due to increased exposure to weathering (both rain water and UV day light) all cill and cill extensions on casement windows are manufactuared from hardwood.
We are fitting all our flush casement windows with best quality, high performance double glazed units which are supplied from well accredited companies. We also have a wide range of glass types, spacer bars, and we assure customers the highest standards of glazing.
Our casement windows are fitted with a standard range of window furniture, which has often been selected and used because of the high quality, hard durability and elegancy. We offer brass, polished chrome, or satin based designs. We can also create different patterns and finishes for you, and allow you to design your own finishes.
– Friction hinge – a basic concealed hinge (it is not visible from the inside and is only partly visible from the outside)
– Restrictor hinge – a standard hinge with a built in safety restrictor. This restrictor prevents the window from opening more than 15 degrees (until the restrictor is released by pressing a “release” button)
– Egress hinge- allows the window to be opened to 90 degrees. this hinge type also allows the sash to slide towards the centre, and this can be beneficial perhaps for cleaning purposes
– But hinge – a traditional standard design
Multipoint locking system
The three point concealed locking system gives the best safety for your windows and uses an espagnolette locking system with 4 mushrooms and 2 end shoot bolts.
Trickle Vents can be fitted in either the head of the frame or in the head of the casement – details are based on client requests.
Mouldings and Glazing Bars.
Glazing bars (mouldings) and beadings (mouldings) are designed to specific specifications and requirements. The most popular is the astrogal bar. This can come in different widths. The solid glazing bars and the traditional timber beadings can be manufactured to specific details.
Note: The height of glazing bars depends on the double glaze’s unit thickness. When a 24mm double glaze unit for example is fitted; we have to install a very thin bar (With that of a 12mm height). By reducing the thickness of the glass we can achieve a more distinct moulding.
