Flush casement timber windows are defined by opening casements closing into the frame, thus creating a flush finish.
While these have been installed in buildings of all shapes and sizes for centuries, the flush casement’s notable clean lines, classic character and charm were particularly popular in
the 1920’s and 1930’s.
Contrary to flush casements which were popular throughout the centuries, Edwardian casements are unique to buildings built under the brief reign of King Edward VII.
The Edwardians designed their own style timber casement windows by recessing the casement behind the frame, which allowed them to achieve a “stepped back” look. Usually recognisable by their glazing bars in the top openers rather than the lower casements, Edwardian casements are available with either leaded lights or timber glazing bars. Fine lamb’s tongue mouldings complete this classic look.
Despite Stormproof timber casement windows only increasing in popularity in the 1950’s, they’re now the most widely used window in British modern homes. Compared to a recessed timber window, where the window sits behind the frame, the stormproof casement’s window sits proud of the frame and overlaps it.
A stormproof is a perfect choice for those living in slightly harsher climates, where an extra layer of protection from the elements might be welcome.
With 27 bespoke specification upgrades to choose from, you’re in the unique position of being able to enhance any feature of your bespoke sash window. From better soundproofing to reduced maintenance cycles and improved temperature control; from warp-resistant timbers, hidden trickle vents, cords and chains to specialised glass and authentic mouldings, our master craftsmen combine advanced technology with exquisite classic finishes to perfectly enhance your home’s period sophistication.
Originally, glazing bars were created in order to support smaller panes of glass at a time when primitive production methods did not permit the manufacture of larger panes.
Our preferred glazing bar design is fine lamb’s tongue, which adds finesse and grace to original casement window designs. Sophisticated and refined, fine lamb’s tongue is a mark of understated elegance and quality.
Regardless of whether your period property is Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian or built in the 1920’s, a variety of period finishes are available to complete the look of your casement windows.
