How Windows can Help Accessibility
uPVC casement, bow and bay, vertical sliding and tilt and turn – windows come in a variety of shapes, sizes and designs. Some push while others pull. Some slide and others rise. We look at how important it is for each customer to choose the right windows in order to meet their individual needs and ensure maximum accessibility.
Suited for a variety of applications, these windows feature a single-lever latch design making them easy to open and close. – Ideal for places in the home that are hard to reach. Often placed behind kitchen sinks for their easy accessibility, uPVC double glazed casement windows open wide due to their sash pivot. This gives ample space to climb through making for an emergency exit if needed. For those looking for safer windows on the upper floors, uPVC casement offers a greater peace of mind due to the one way opening mechanism.
Bay and Bow Windows
Perfect for adding character and charm to a home, bow and bay windows can give a heightened sense of space, and thanks to ‘dummy sashes’ these double glazed windows are designed to enhance a home’s appearance by creating equal sight lines.Any flat window space can be converted to a bay and bow window. The option of hidden bay poles carried though a windowsill eliminates the chances of a malfunction thanks to the pole’s unique ability to take structural loads.
Vertical Sliding Sash Windows
Ideal for homes that want to maintain their charm while benefiting from increased functionality, the Vertical Sliding Sash is perfect for providing functionality, security and an age-old style. A great option for replacing old sliding windows made from timber, these linear windows are also ideal for people with bad back as they reduce the strain placed on the bottom of the spine.
The Vertical Sliding Sash offers the characteristics of a more traditional property, whilst maintaining the great functionality and benefits that uPVC double glazed windows provide.
Tilt and Turn Windows
Found across many homes both contemporary and traditional, Tilt and Turn windows are perfect for those living in flats, on top floors or just a few stories up. With a ‘tilt-only’ option these windows open all the way allowing air to circulate a property while keeping it safe. Ideal for cleaning too, Tilt and Turn windows allow exterior access meaning homeowners do not have to step outside to get their windows sparkling clean.
