Simple Grace and Elegance

The design of our Conventional Box Sash Window reproduces as faithfully as possible the simple grace of English sash windows, progressively developed from early use by Wren, their peak in the late Georgian period and in common usage by the Victorians and Edwardians. In particular, the dimensions of our sash frames, meeting rails and glazing bars have been made slim, with traditional mouldings subtly modified to suit modern construction technology.

Our sliding sashes are hung on chains or pre-tensioned sash cords, retaining the long proven reliability of simple counterbalance weights. Triple draught strips stop rattles, and extremely high insulation glazing units minimise heat loss. Multi-layer, twist and warp resistant timber minimises the jamming found on windows of lesser quality during wet weather. Sash windows are typically finished in white, off-white or cream but specifying a shade of grey, blue or green externally can make for an interesting design twist. Locking fitch catches and traditional sash lifts may be fitted in brass or chrome.

Slim and Beautiful

Measuring a little over five inches from front to back, our Slim Box Sash is the slimmest traditional box sash window available in the United Kingdom. This compact design allows the new window to sit comfortably in place of the original without projecting into the room. Our Slim Box Sash is a favoured choice for all types of sash window replacement, but is particularly useful where traditional interior sash window shutters, or other internal decorative features are to be retained. It is a practical choice in instances where radiators are positioned directly below a sash window, removing the need to have them re-sited.

The Slim Box Sash carries narrow double glazed units but maintains high levels of insulation by using high performance Krypton gas between the glasses. Externally the window suites with the rest of our sash collection with slender meeting rails, fine glazing bars and traditional mouldings.


We provide all types of glazing options, even privacy glazing…

Purchasing a set of windows may seem a daunting prospect financially, but you need to view it as a long-term investment and consider how much money they will save over their extensive lifespan. Once fitted, a quick wipe down now and again will leave them gleaming in all weathers. Another huge asset of owning a contemporary set of windows is just how useful they are when it comes to ventilating your home as they offer a substantial opening that enables outdoor air to circulate around your abode and cool it accordingly. We promise that they’ll be one of your greatest-ever buys.

Double Glazing

Rising energy bills have fast become a key concern for millions of homeowners. The double glazing installed at a property plays an essential part to play in keeping fuel costs down so if yours aren’t up to the job then we strongly recommend that you consider the installation of quality double glazing or even energy rated windows. All of our window options come with double glazing as standard and any of our designs can be transformed into Energy Rated Windows such is our enthusiasm for giving people exactly what they want. Whether you want a ‘C’ rated version, or the ‘A++’ rated variety, leave it with us.

Triple Glazing

Rising energy bills and unpredictable weather has led to the rise in popularity of Triple Glazing. That extra pane of glass can make a huge amount of difference to fuel costs and the warmth felt inside a home which makes it an attractive proposition to those who can afford to go the extra mile financially. Whilst it costs more than traditional double glazing, you will get more than your fair share back in monetary terms. Whichever of our window designs appeal, don’t worry as we can integrate Triple Glazing into any of them such is their adaptability so don’t be afraid to ask.

Glazing Designs

Your home should be a place where you can shut yourself off from the outside world and it can be if you choose to have privacy glazing fitted. It’s a fantastic solution particularly in areas such as the bathroom and entrance into your property as it will prevent people from being able to gaze into your living space. It can be utilised in both double glazing and triple glazing and despite its purpose, will still draw in a generous amount of natural sunlight.

Choose between a traditional or contemporary frames…

 

UPVC

Windows with UPVC frames are the natural choice for many people for their low maintenance and thermal efficiencies. UPVC is often perceived as not being quite as aesthetically pleasing as other options, but with latest technologies, a wide range of colour options, and the range of woodgrain effects that can be applied, UPVC windows have never looked so good!

Aluminium

Aluminium has incredible lasting robustness and sleek sightlines, which means  it is perfect for a substantial expanse of glass. Windows made from aluminium are gaining in popularity due to how modern they look and feel. The slimmer profile frames, in comparison to UPVC, mean that more natural light enters the home and there is more outside to look at!

Heritage

On the lookout for the highest quality conservatory frame? You need to check out our Heritage range, a contemporary take on 19th Century flush timber window frames. The Heritage frame is fantastic in terms of thermal insulation but it can be boosted further with the inclusion of 44mm triple glazed glass, saving you even more money on your energy bills in the long run. They’re incredibly durable too.  To the touch, they feel just like timber, and it’s needless to say that they look just like the real thing and much of the credit for that has to be put down to the woodgrain effect applied to the frame. As an added bonus, you won’t even have to look after them as they are completely maintenance-free and if requested we can even apply different finishes on the exterior and interior of the frame so that they perfect match up to your home in every way, shape and form. And don’t be fooled into thinking that these windows are purely designed for the period home. They will look just as good incorporated into a new-build.

Colour Finishes

Together with our authentic colour finishes, our fabulous range of colours will fully complement and truly enhance your replacement windows. County offer a great range of colour options including whitegrain and classic cream, green, through to grey, light oak and black, creating the ultimate style statement for your new windows

More and more people are choosing the coloured look. While brilliant white has the smooth finish of gloss painted wood, County Windows coloured frames have a natural woodgrain texture that looks and feel like traditional stained timber. In fact, it is only by touch you can tell these are actually high security, virtually maintenance free UPVC.

UPVC Colours

In addition to our coloured woodgrain range, we can create or match any colour you like for your County windows. The colour coating used is a specially developed paint that is sprayed on and bonds perfectly to the UPVC giving a smooth satin finish that forms an extra protective coating that never needs re-painting.

Aluminium Colours

The rich texture and colour you find on our Aluminium is attainable thanks to the 11-stage powder-coating process undertaken on every aluminium-based item. Those who prefer a woodgrain effect can have their wish granted too as we can perform a treatment called sublimation which allows us to produce Walnut, Oak and Rosewood finishes that look exactly like timber.

Heritage Colours

Timber has a quality all of its own and it’s a look that any homeowners aspire to have present at their property. Well now they can courtesy of our Heritage range which perfectly mimics the 19th Century traditional timber window and comes in a selection of colours from the period including Clotted Cream, Cotswold Biscuit and Painswick. For a colour outside the box check out Corse Lawn and Eclectic Grey or for full authenticity try English, Irish and Silvered Oak.
