Double Glazing: What Window Types are there? | Concept Windows

When it comes to selecting new windows for your home, there are a lot of different choices, designs and finishes to select from.

You know that you want high quality double glazing, but do you know exactly what window design you want?

Whether you own a heritage property with traditional appeal or something more modern and contemporary, there is a window type that is best suited to you.

We’ve put together a little guide about the different window types available:

Casement Windows

Casement windows offer a timeless and classic appeal, with beautiful slim sightlines allowing increased natural light as well as unobstructed views. The sleek appearance is due to the discreet hinges and gaskets that provide long lasting performance and weather protection.

The casement window is the earliest form of movable window featuring hinges or pivots at the upright side of the vertically hung sash. Traditionally made from timber but now created in uPVC for increased thermal efficiency whilst retaining the conventional and authentic looks.

Tilt and Turn Windows

The tilt and turn window design is stylish as well as contemporary, with easy to operate functionality that makes it easy to get to hard to reach areas for cleaning and increased ventilation. The smart tilt and turn function makes for a modern and innovative design.

Found in blocks of flats as well as other modern premises, the tilt and turn window also doubles up as a fire exit making them multi-functional and extremely versatile. They are frequently found on balconies as they are space saving and compact.

Sliding Sash Windows

The sliding sash windows are beautiful with a highly recognisable and traditional style. If you’re looking for convention coupled with modern high performance, our uPVC sliding sash windows retain charm and elegance whilst keeping your home protected.

The sliding sash window can find its origins in 17th century London before the great fire of 1666. The English Baroque period resulted in many architectural styles including the sliding sash widow. Designed to bring in light in narrow streets, they became increasingly popular.

Bay and Bow Windows

Found in both period and modern properties the bay and bow window style suits any property type. Typically found in the living room to increase floor space and enhance outside views, they are highly sought after to create the perfect first impression for the front of a property.

They work well to make a room appear larger, protruding slightly from the exterior wall. You can choose from a range of decorative finishes for your bow and bay windows, with a wide range of options and colours as well as woodgrain effects.
