The Bedfordshire Heritage Range
Our Vertical Sliding Sash Windows are the perfect solution to any period property that should, and rightly so, maintain its traditional look. In keeping with the properties original features and character we also provide versatility of a sliding sash window that’s low maintenance, rattle-free modern construction and highly energy efficient.
The construction of our PVC-U sliding sash windows compared to the more traditional timber box sash window differs most in the means of holding the sliding sashes in position. Instead of weights, pulleys and a cord, we build in a sophisticated set of spring and spiral balancers that maintain the sash retention. The design of these retainers enables the window to carry sash weights far greater than wooden frames offer.
Its our pleasure to bring a beautiful period property back to its former glory that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
The Bedfordshire Heritage PVC-U vertical sliding sash windows function primarily like a wooden box sash window with both the top and bottom sashes sliding up and down to suit your ventilation requirements.
Windows are individually manufactured to meet exact customer requirements from a minimum 370mm in width and 740mm in height, up to a maximum of 1600mm in width and 3000mm in height.
