uPVC French casement windows suit any home, whatever its age or shape might be.
Window Doctor is proud to offer you high-quality uPVC French casement windows. No worries about drafts, mould or warps with these! These stylish windows are an upgrade from the standard casement window, having two sashes which are hinged on the side and meet in the middle. As with all casement windows, they were traditionally made from timber and lead-paned, but ours are right up to date and made from the most technologically advanced materials. For example, uPVC, which is used in all our windows, is made with fewer non-renewable fossils fuels than any other competing plastic. This reduces its carbon footprint. uPVC is also recyclable. If you want the low maintenance perks of a non-timber window but are worried about its cost to the environment, make sure you get a window made from uPVC
Our uPVC French casement windows meet security standard PAS 24. This is the national security standard for uPVC windows which demands stringent tests to ensure that your windows can offer enhanced performance when an intruder is attempting to force their way inside. Not only are the frames themselves safe and secure, the windows can also incorporate all the top-quality handles, hinges and locking mechanisms on the market in order to maximise their security. If these are installed in the correct manner they achieve the Secured by Design certification, which is supported by the police and awarded to products which put serious thought into how their design will deter intruders.
uPVC French casement windows have slim, elegant sight lines for maximum light and minimum view obstruction. The profiles come in two types: sculptured (curved) or chamfered (bevelled). We offer 28mm double glazing or 36mm triple glazing with these windows. Triple glazing is a little pocket-lightening but you will make the difference back in energy savings: thermal glazing can be phenomenally good at insulating your house from escaping heat or sound.
All of our window frames are made from uPVC. Some of our supplies of uPVC are extruded at the HL Plastics plant in Derbyshire. This is one of the largest employers in the region, so when you buy these windows from Window Doctor you can feel proud that you are contributing to the growth of our economy, to the retention of jobs, and helping to sustain one of Britain’s national manufacturing industries.
uPVC French casement windows are available in a number of different styles. The first is Tritech, a 60mm window profile. This style of window is highly versatile, suiting everything from domestic to commercial markets. They are solid and secure, but can be further strengthened if necessary thanks to the large reinforcement chambers and ability to utilise steel hardware. Tritech windows meet all the required security standards for normal usage, and, if double glazed, provide significant sound insulation to reduce outdoor noises. Thanks to the glazing beads and retention detail, Tritech windows are easy to glaze on-site.
The second is Total 70. This style of window is highly versatile, suiting everything from domestic to commercial markets. They meet all important standards including the PAS 24 security standard mentioned above, and can achieve an outstandingly low U-value of 0.8 W/m2K if you purchase triple glazing for them. Although they can be used from scratch in a new build situation, they are also ideal for adding to an existing system if you need to replace an old window. Total 70 windows are fully compatible with reversible windows, sliding patio doors, entrance doors, and bi-fold doors.
