Sash window specialists Masterframe has launched its unique London Sash and Frame system. It is perfect for replacing timber windows with an arched exterior and square interior, commonly found in Victorian buildings in London and the surrounding areas.
The exclusive system shares all the benefits of Masterframe’s Vintage Collection and means that installers don’t have to rely on finding a bespoke design to achieve this window style.
Ray Rabett, Technical Director at Masterframe, explains: “We were first approached about this window style when a customer was replacing windows at Guildford High School. The existing sash windows were square internally, but arched externally, and there wasn’t a solution on the market for a like-for-like replacement.
“We worked with them to deliver a solution for the project, but soon realised that this wasn’t a one-off. There were plenty of buildings around the London area that had this window style.”
Masterframe now produces CAD drawings for each individual window specifying the PVC-U London Sash and Frame to ensure complete accuracy. High-quality panelling is then shaped by Masterframe’s expert team to fit each individual aperture and sprayed to give an exact colour-match to the sash window. In the Masterframe factory, fully trained fabricators piece this panel with the window for a stunning finish.
The company says, London Sash and Frame is faster to install than traditional arched windows and made bespoke to fit the original architecture. It’s an ideal option for conservation areas, as the authentic design offers incredible aesthetics, with white wood foil and a colour-matching paint spray service available.
Ray adds: “This system is completely bespoke and completely unique to the market, making it faster and easier to complete renovation projects that feature this window style.”
