Sashworks Victorian Profile Windows balance the best of traditional construction and modern performance.
Windows are made from selected European Redwood from sustainable sources. All sections are double vacuum treated with preservative and primed with white microporous primer unless otherwise specified .
Manufactured to replicate exactly the original mouldings, Sash Profiles are available 38mm, 46mm or 50mm thick, with Sash Stiles and Top Rails up to 55mm wide .
Meeting Rails 28mm, 32mm or 38mm wide Bottom Rail 75mm, 85mm or 95mm deep Astragals (glazing bars) 16mm, 18mm or 24mm wide
Note – astragals more than 22mm wide have a flat rather than a feather edge.
Case Profiles are made to traditional details generally to match originals. Alternatively, a pair of reproduction sashes can be fitted to an existing box/case that has been renovated and improved using the Ventrolla System.
Sash windows in this Victorian Profile can be 1 pane, 2 pane, 6 pane, 8 pane &c. Arched and Swept Headed sashes, Venetian Windows, Bay Windows and horizontally sliding “Yorkshire Lights” can all use the same profiles for the sliding sashes.
Sashes can be supplied unglazed but are generally supplied ready glazed, with traditional linseed oil putty bedding and face pointing. 4 mm float glass is used as standard, though various glass types are available on request including safety glass, patterned glass and special glass where faithful reproduction of historic detailing is required.
The patented Ventrolla System is built into all new case and sash windows to make them draughtproof beyond the highest requirements of BS6375. They will also open and close easily. The Ventrolla “Sash Removal System” is fitted as standard to facilitate long term maintenance (complies with CDM regulations).
Brass centre catch and sash lifts are fitted as standard. Many decorative and security options are available to order. Sashes are normally hung on cords, pulleys and weights. Spiral balances can be fitted if required.
All windows are made to measure; either supply only or supply and install services are available.
Windows are made as reproductions of originals and are therefore suitable for Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings. It is advisable to check each specific case with the Planning Authorities. We can provide any samples and drawings that may be required in applying for permission to use our windows.
All joinery and Ventrolla systems are covered by a written 5 year warranty.
