Sash windows have been enhancing the beauty of buildings on the Isle of Man since their invention in the 17th Century. Slim sight lines coupled with large glass areas add a timeless grace unmatched by any other style of window.
Functionality doesn’t have to be traded for such great looks either. Sliding sash windows offer better controlled ventilation than just about any other style of window.
If you are wanting to replace your old timber sash windows you will find our high quality PVCu windows a revelation. Modern engineering technology means they slide smoothly with none of the sticking or rattling you will be currently experiencing with your old windows while precision manufacturing means you can say goodbye to draughts too and of course, being made from PVCu means you won’t need to get out the ladders and paint your windows again as they are virtually maintenance free.
Secure and Energy Saving
Our sash sliding windows meet and more often than not actually exceed all the most stringent building regulations, quality accreditations and security standards.
Individually Made For Your Home
All our sash windows are made to measure and hand finished with an unlimited amount of customisation to meet your exact needs. While the frame shape may be dictated by your current windows you have full control over frame colour, hardware colour and the type of glazing as well as optional extras and special features such as period joinery detail and a wood effect finish.
For New Builds
Fitting vertical sliding sash windows into new buildings will add charm and period character perfect for the Isle of Man.
The traditional looks of sliding sash windows instantly creates an appearance of elegance, not to mention real kerb appeal and increased property value. Our sash windows meet all Building Regulations and are certified and approved by the British Board of Agrement.
Sash Window Options
The Frames – The sculptured PVCu profiles create both an authentic and a long lasting pristine appearance while maintenance consists of nothing more than an occasional wash with warm soapy water and checking the balance channels are clear of debris.
Simple Operation – The frame holds the two sashes and they slide up and down just as a traditional sash window would although unlike traditional sash windows that use a series of pulleys and lead weights, modern sash windows work effortlessly using spring balances that are concealed in the frame.
Balanced Opening System – You will find they stay open in any position due to each spring balance being made to suit the weight of the window it is operating. These spring balances are guaranteed for 10 years but will easily last 25 years having been independently tested to over 20,000 operations.
Tilt In Facility – Both top and bottom sashes tilt in as standard to make cleaning the outside of the glass quick and easy.
Restrictors – Always recommended if toddlers are living in the home, our sliding sash windows come with these installed as standard.
Protection Against The Manx Wind – All our sash windows are fully sealed around the frame and also double sealed on each sliding sash for a triple weatherseal that is more than enough to keep out our strong winds.
Just a few of the additional options you might want to consider are:
Trickle Vents – These are controllable air vents that can be fitted to the top sash to provide ventilation even when the sashes are closed.
Additional Period Timber Features – Sash horns can be added to emulate the look of some traditional timber sash windows and a deep bottom rail can also be added for the same reason.
Hardware – Handles and locks are available in bright or brushed chrome, gold, black or standard white.
Georgian Bars – Authentic Georgian bars can be surface mounted to give depth and genuine traditional detailing. You can also choose to have the bars ‘glazed in’ if you prefer.
Colours – You can have your frames made in a variety of colour options including different inside and out.
Decorative Glazing – Your windows can be supplied with obscure or decorative patterns if needed. Bevelled, leaded or coloured glass is also no problem.
