Casement Windows

The most popular style in the UK, a casement window is where all or part of the window opens outwards. The opening portion, known as the sash, can be top-hung or side-hung and when used in combination with fixed panes offers the widest choice of styles possible. With frames and handles available in a wide range of colours and numerous decorative glass options, you are sure to find a design to suit your home.

If you are replacing casement windows in a conservation area, an historic house or character property, you may be interested in either the Residence 9 flush casement window or our heritage steel replacement windows. If you are looking to replace your timber box sash windows, our Rose Collection PVCu sliding sash window range is sure to be of interest.

Residence 9

Residence 9 is a unique new window system designed to accurately replicate the 19th century flush sash timber window in every detail, whilst utilising the very latest technologies. Fully mechanically jointed – mimicking traditional mortise and tenon joinery – Residence 9 windows are hand finished by skilled craftsmen from modern, low maintenance, composite materials. It boasts market leading thermal and acoustic performance, the latest security innovations and easy clean features, yet looks like the original. The result is a truly authentic design which will appeal to any homeowner who is seeking a top end luxury window.

Key features include:

  • Mechanical joints used throughout, as opposed to welded mitre joints, mimicking traditional joinery
  • Sashes sit flush with the frame on the outside for an authentic appearance
  • The dimensions of the sash and frame profiles mirror those historically documented and as listed in many Article 4 Conservation Area planning guidelines
  • Authentic chamfered putty line outside, with deep ornate detailing to the inside
  • Manufactured from a modern composite material to give a virtually maintenance free finish which will not warp, swell, flake or require sanding or painting
  • Available in a range of heritage colours, as well as contemporary Eclectic Grey, and woodgrain finishes; with the option of dual finishes i.e. different colours on the outside and inside. The easy clean rebates are finished to match the colours chosen, meaning the high end appearance is maintained when the window is open
