The 2500 uPVC windows profile is a chamfered system. It is technically advanced and has high performance. It compliments both traditional and contemporary properties with a smooth and stylish simplicity. These uPVC Windows comply with all current Building Regulations. They provide excellent thermal insulation and soundproofing and are compatible with all standard security hardware. They are internally beaded. Internal beading prevents forced entry. In addition, they possess multi-point shoot bolt locking as a standard for superior security protection. Available in a wide range of durable coloured foils and stylish coated finishes. The 2500 is perhaps more suited to commercial developments including installation of modern windows or new build projects. Both double and triple glazing are available with the 2500 Series Profile. For those looking for clean, sharp, modern lines the 2500 Series Profile is the one to choose.
2800 uPVC windows profile is sculptured or decorative in shape. It has a unique, modern shape with smooth contours and is an outstanding addition to any building. Available in a wide range of foils and colour coated finishes that will compliment your home. This system has all the features and benefits of the 2500 system as listed above. It compliments both traditional and contemporary properties but is perhaps more suited to residential applications. For those looking for a more decorative, ornate or traditional look the 2800 Series Profile is the one to choose.
The flush sash uPVC system is only available in the 2800 series profile. Flush sash uPVC windows replicate the appearance of timber. They have sashes that close into the frame and finish flush with the face of the window. Typically they have frames that appear the same width, known as “equal sightlines”. This look is achieved using dummy sashes. It undoubtedly improves the appearance of a property but is especially sympathetic to period properties. The elegance and style of traditional timber windows are combined with all the benefits of uPVC Windows.
This range is ideal for those wishing to add or improve the period features of their homes and they also meet the requirements of many conservation areas. Please ensure before ordering that you check with your Local Authority’s planning or conservation officer.
