Learn more about Flush Casement Windows

A flush casement uPVC window is one where the opening pane is held on hinges within a frame, but the opening part does not project out from the frame. Instead, it lies aligned or ‘flush’ with it. A design which has been around for centuries, they are one of the most common UK window styles.

Perfect for historic properties which need to replace rotting or ageing timber flush windows, they boast clean sightlines and a fuss-free finish. With flush casement uPVC windows now virtually indistinguishable from the traditional timber version, forward-thinking planning authorities are open to the idea of using them in conservation areas.

Traditionalists will argue that uPVC windows should never be fitted in a period property. There are a few, very rare properties where this is definitely the case. But for most homes, installing uPVC does make sense. A fantastic long-lasting building material which doesn't warp or rot, flush casement uPVC windows are virtually maintenance free and will improve your home’s energy efficiency.

By paying close attention to every detail and the authentic proportions of traditional timber casements, we have recreated them meticulously in uPVC – ensuring that the window’s mullions, sashes and transoms all align perfectly. Just like the timber originals, the shape is chamfered on the outside to repel the rain and beautifully sculptured on the inside so you can admire its decorative shape. Although they do not lock in the night vent position, they do have multi-point locks for added security. But the best thing is they come with added thermal and acoustic insulation and there’s also no need for regular repainting.

Hand crafted and available in a wide range of colour finishes, our flush casement uPVC windows come with a ten-year warranty and will look just as charming as a timber original.

Flush Casement Windows FAQs

How safe and secure are flush casement windows?

Fitted with multi-point locks and 24mm double glazing as standard, these windows look authentic and are highly secure. Thanks to their egress hinges, which allow the window to open fully, they can also act as the perfect escape route if ever there was an emergency.

How energy efficient are they?

Made using multichambered sections to maximise the insulating qualities of the PVC-U from which they are made, flush casement windows will help your home to maintain a comfortable temperature all year round. Long-life weather seals will also reduce draughts to prevent your property from feeling cold and damp, even if it is a traditional or period home.

The exact energy efficiency of each unit depends on the overall glass to frame ratio and your specific dimensions, but it will offer fantastic 21st century levels of insulation.

Are flush casement windows suitable for conservation areas and period homes?

If you live in a period property which has listed status or lies in a conservation area, there is no definitive answer as to whether you will be allowed to use PVC-U windows to renovate your home. Ultimately, that decision will be made by your planning authority. But, unlike a few years ago, forward-thinking planners are much more open to idea of using flush casement uPVC windows because they are now virtually indistinguishable from timber. 

What finishing touches can I choose?

Flush casement windows come with a wide range of ironmongery, glazing, accessories and finishes to choose from – all of which will help you to create the perfect window for your property. Simply choose clean chamfered lines or gently sculptured curves to suit your window openings. Decorative and functional ‘weather bars’ can help to disperse rainwater, whilst the windows can be mechanically jointed to mimic a wooden frame construction or finished in foils to replicate the knots and grains of timber.

What colours are flush casement windows available in?

Fashions constantly change and we know that colour is really important, which is why we offer such an extensive choice.  For an authentic look, you may need a dark or black colour to work with a timber framed house, whilst a coastal or countryside property may be better suited to something bright and fresh. We can also offer the look of natural oak or a flat textured grey, which is proving popular in modern properties. Ultimately, the choice is yours but we can cater for most requirements, including some very sophisticated dual-colour options.

Can I choose the handles and hardware that best suit my home?

Although the modern friction hinges and locking mechanisms are all neatly tucked out of the way, you can select from a number of hardware options – including traditional style peg stays and monkey-tail handles, all of which are available in a range of colours and finishes.
