A familiar part of our architectural heritage, the elegant proportions and charming aesthetic appeal of sash windows hold a special place in the UK. Their earliest known use was in the 17th Century at Chatsworth, Hampton Court Palace and Kensington Palace. Traditional glazing including stained glass and leaded lights are also a much loved part of our architectural landscape. But with a global focus on energy efficiency, the challenge for those involved in the window industry is how to aesthetically replicate traditional fenestration, while meeting the higher product performance demands expected today.
When Old Meets New
Incorporating modern thinking, energy efficiency and technology with traditional styling, values and attention to detail, ERW is delighted to announce that after a period of significant investment, we can now offer two major new developments.
For the first time ever, we can now refurbish existing sash windows and improve their insulation – up to 60% heat loss reduction – by manufacturing new sashes that contain high performance double glazed units, without interfering with the existing internal decoration or architectural features.*
And on the glazing side, we have just received approval from a local authority for the application of our new triple glazed leaded lights in conservation areas. Where the historical single glazed leaded pane must be kept, we now have the ability to encapsulate it into a high performance, triple glazed unit.
Our award winning indoor facility showcases the entire range of products. You can browse at your leisure and see for yourself the quality of construction and finish available on our wood windows and doors.
