Traditional sash and case windows are typical of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian houses in Britain. With sashes, the panes slide rather than swing, moving up and down in the window case.
The Lorimer Sliding Sash is designed to look just like traditional timber windows – in fact it’s hard to tell the difference just by looking. But our sash and case windows need no painting or maintenance, they won’t rot or warp, and they deliver excellent thermal performance and noise protection.
While uPVC sash windows perform much better than timber, it’s still a pleasure to have the beauty of wood indoors. Ours come with internal sills and surrounds in a choice of hardwoods – Natural Ash, American Cherry, Royal Oak and Far Eastern Mahogany. The hardwood sills and surrounds are hand-finished in varnish or wax. We can alternatively offer an engineered wood, finished in brilliant white if this would suit your home better to match existing window panelling.
As with all our window types, you can choose smart white uPVC which will never yellow, or any one from a range of colours and finishes, inside and out. Sliding Sash windows in bright white can make your room look bigger, while traditional rose- wood or light oak woodgrain finishes gives a richer, more opulent effect.
What is uPVC double glazing?
Double glazing is the term used to describe two panes of glass within a frame, fitted to reduce the loss of heat and reduce noise. Traditionally, windows were single-glazed until the late 1970s. The CR Smith Lorimer window uses the latest double glazing technology that is available on the market today.
