timber casement windows
DESIGNED FOR REFURBISHMENT PROJECTS
Scotts timber casement windows have an enduring appeal, with authentic detailing, as required for renovation projects.
The Refurbishment Range is the first choice for a replacement window project where the emphasis is slightly less on performance, due to the more relaxed building regulations, and slightly more on the subtleties of aesthetic appearance. On the Refurbishment Range, Scotts has ensured that timber section sizes are kept to an absolute minimum, glass units are narrower and glazing bars can be as fine as 18mm.
HOW IT WORKS
The Scotts timber casement window has opening sashes that are connected to the frame by hinges. Traditionally these would have been butt hinges attached to the frame jamb. As well as offering this traditional option, the Scotts Refurbishment Range also offers modern concealed friction hinges positioned at the head and cill of the window.
These friction hinges allow the window to open to 90 degrees and also have a clever built in facility that allows the sash to be pushed away from the jamb so the windows can be easily cleaned from the inside.
Timber casement windows can be singular or supplied with any number of multiple sashes in a common frame (double, triple or quadruple casements) with a combination of opening or fixed sashes.
For combination windows, the vertical frame section that separates each sash is called a mullion. If the window has a fanlight the horizontal frame section is called a transom.
