Re: Re: Irish say no to PVC windows
Interesting & informative post. What do you guys think of sliding sash in new builds? We’ve nearly decided on a 2 over 2 timber sash. Having no particular historical knowledge are there any particular design features we should be careful not to mix?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
The modern Sash Window can now have the thermal qualities of gas filled “k” double glazing and look exactly like the original windows from yester years. Georgian or curved / gothic designs can be stuck onto the glass, achieving the ” narrow” bar traditional look, Weights are not normally used any more, we now use a special weight balanced spring mechanism that is competely hidden from view, and all parting beads are draughtproofed using special seals.
