Vertical Sliding Sash Windows

Steeped in history and prestige, sash windows are considered by many to be the most elegant of all the window styles available. Unfortunately, being constructed of timber, traditional box sash windows suffer from a number of issues: the timber can warp and twist due to the ravages of the weather, leading to sashes ‘sticking’ and becoming difficult to open and close; the sashes can rattle when the wind blows leading to draughts and increased noise; the timber is prone to rotting and requires ongoing maintenance – problems that the modern world has little patience for.

This is why we are pleased to introduce you to the three double glazed uPVC sash window ranges in the Rose Collection – Charisma Rose, Heritage Rose and Ultimate Rose. Combining high-performing modern functionality with all the charm and character of a timber original, these three stunning windows have been carefully crafted to give your home a striking combination of old and new.

The Rose Collection offers many benefits, including:

  • Virtually maintenance-free – no more sanding and repainting required
  • Highly energy efficient – all three being A-rated as standard, meaning you will enjoy a warmer, draught-free home whilst at the same time saving money on your energy bills
  • Enhanced security – windows feature steel reinforcement and modern high security locks. Security can be improved even further by choosing the Secured by Design option
  • Easy to use – with an inward tilt facility that allows you to clean the window from inside your home and modern pre-tensioned balances which banish the problem of sticking sashes
  • Wide choice of colours and finishes – in addition to a range of standard colours and woodgrain finishes, you have the option of specifying the Rose Collection in any RAL colour*

Engineered to the highest quality, and having more than 25 years experience built in, they are, quite simply, the most authentic PVCu sliding sash windows available on the market. In fact, in 2013 the Ultimate Rose won the Awards for the Glass and Glazing Industry’s highly prestigious New Product of the Year Award.

Charisma Rose

The most contemporary looking, competitively priced sash window in the range, Charisma Rose is suitable for all applications, from traditional to new-build. The Charisma Rose offers the following features:

  • Modern sightlines for a contemporary look
  • Ovolo featured profiles throughout
  • Range of colour and woodgrain finishes as standard
  • Anti-jemmy bar for increased security
  • Optional deep bottom rail – mechanically jointed, as opposed to welded, the deep bottom rail matches the traditional, thick lower rail often used on the bottom sash
  • “Clip-on” sash horns to the underside of the upper sash. Alternatively, “run-through” sash horns, which are sculptured from the side members of the upper sash, are available as an optional extra
  • Surface mounted astragal bars available in a range of period designs (internal Georgian bars also available)
  • Furniture available in a range of finishes
  • Secured by Design accredited

Heritage Rose

Heritage Rose was originally developed in consultation with conservation bodies, in order to create a truly traditional looking sash window with all the modern benefits of PVCu. Its deep bottom rail, slim sightlines and authentic exterior putty lines are all characteristics of original timber box sash windows, which is why it has been accepted in numerous conservation areas across the UK. Heritage Rose offers the following features:

  • Slimmest sightlines of any uPVC sash window
  • Authentic exterior putty lines
  • Option of polished welds – it may be a fine detail, but helps to replicate a painted finish
  • Range of colour and woodgrain finishes as standard
  • Deep bottom rail as standard – matches the traditional, thick lower rail typically used on the bottom sash
  • Run-through sash horns, which are sculptured from the side members of the upper sash, are available as an optional extra
  • Surface mounted astragal bars in a range of period designs – externally these are “putty lined” to match the chamfered sash, and are ovolo internally to match the glazing beads (internal Georgian bars also available)
  • Furniture available in a range of finishes
  • Secured by Design accredited

Ultimate Rose

When only the most authentic look will do, the Ultimate Rose in unequalled. Ultimate Rose sash windows have all the design features of Heritage Rose such as a deep bottom rail, run-through sash horns and authentic external putty lines. But it’s the attention to detail that makes the Ultimate Rose the most authentic uPVC sash window on the market. Accepted in sensitive conservation areas, as has the Heritage Rose, its features include:

  • Slimmest sightlines of any uPVC sash window – in common with the Heritage Rose
  • Full mechanical joints – no welds used, mimicking traditional mortise and tenon joinery
  • Woodgrain foil finish – providing a true timber appearance
  • Deep bottom rail
  • Run-through sash horns which are sculptured from the side members of the upper sash
  • Surface mounted astragal bars in a range of period designs – externally these are “putty lined” to match the chamfered sash, and are ovolo internally to match the glazing beads
  • Furniture available in a range of finishes with bespoke traditional furniture available as an optional extra

Between them, there is a sash window in the Rose Collection to suit all properties and budgets.

* RAL Colours are internationally recognised colour standards used by professionals in industry, manufacturing, architecture and design
