Look around and you will see the most popular choice of window replacement style is the casement, thanks to its ease of use, simplicity and all-round versatility of design. There are different profle choices that change the look of your windows. Another thing to consider is the energy rating - double glazing and triple glazing are available in most systems.
Put simply, it has hinged opening sections (lights) along with fixed panes, giving you the look that is familiar in conventional timber windows combined with all the long life, low-maintenance and enhanced warmth and security of modern uPVC frames. Our Sales team will advise how to combine ventilation and sense of space with safety, security and of course great looking casement windows – all with the low maintenance, superior weather performance.
And for anyone with a thought for energy saving and the environment when choosing double glazing suppliers, KJM can offer most styles of window replacement in a BFRC ‘A’ Rating for superior heat retention as well as ‘B’ or ‘C’ for a more economical installation. Update April 2018. Energy ratings have generally improved, our standard double glazed range comes with an Energy A or A+ as standard. Triple glazing can achieve A++. Please enquire for the latest information.
Naturally, the choice of casement styles of window means you can still choose from a wide array of finishes, such as woodgrain effect, colours or even white textured woodgrain and all with the same long lasting good looks and weather resilience as the traditional white frames.
As responsible double glazing suppliers, KJM’s sales team will also advise on safety aspects of your casement windows. For example, the law insists you have toughened glass for any pane less than 800mm above ground or floor level but you might also consider using it optionally in places such as above a child’s bed or table.
KJM offer a higher level of security compared with conventional timber frames but can in many cases offer even more secure options via a range of specialist features and even high security glazing options such as toughened or even laminated glass. All of our windows offer as standard a level of security that is more than enough for the average household and location, with the ability to fend off all but the most determined intruder but we can build-in additional mechanisms to make our windows even more impenetrable.
