And one...... Decorative Mock Sash Horns

Background ventilation At the same time as improving the insulation of your home and reducing draughts, it is essential to ensure that your home is adequately ventilated. The selection of trickle ventilators in your new windows will help to achieve good air quality in your home and help to reduce condensation. Our ventilators are available in foil options to match the frame and to suit the discerning buyer who is looking for a co-ordinated finish!

Recreate the look of a traditional sliding sash by opting for this decorative addition to a modern casement sash.

Hinge bolts

light oak woodgrain

By choosing extra bolts for the hinge side of your windows, you will benefit in three ways: Sash Guidance The Hinge bolt provides guidance to ensure that the window closes in the same position every time. This improves the performance of the window and extends the life of the hinge and thus also of the window.

Compression of the Gasket The hinge bolt ensures that the gasket around your window is compressed along the whole of the hinged side of the window thus eliminating draughts and noise and reducing heating costs and your carbon footprint. The locking system provides this compression on the lock side.

Security This is the really clever bit! Should a burglar decide that he is going to try and lever your window sash open on the traditionally weaker hinge side, the hinge bolt starts to fight back. A hook on the end of the bolt engages with the special cut-out in the receiver keep to create a strong metal-to-metal contact.As an ever greater pressure is applied by the burglar so an even greater resistance is created by the hinge bolt. The result - exhaustion and frustration for the burglar!

......for the clever stuff 7


How would you like to open your window......

Traditional cottage style pewter shepherd’s crook design handle

Traditional cottage style antique black monkeytail design handle

Contemporary stainless steel handle

All handles operate our secure and strong multi-point locking system. Each locking point has two cams rather than the standard single one. As you turn the handle into the locked position, these cams move together, locking into their keep with a clamping action. We call this our ‘pincer’ bolt as it provides increased resistance to ‘jemmying’ in both directions due to its ‘pincer-type’ movement.

PVC-U bay windows adding another dimension to your room

10


Bay window Bay windows are often associated with Victorian architecture. They first achieved widespread popularity in the 1870s. Bay windows can really change your home by enhancing the exterior of your property, by making your room larger and by letting extra light into your home. Bay windows can also add more floor space to your room just like a mini extension! Our PVC-U bay windows are fully reinforced with galvanised steel or aluminium profiles.

Optional bay pole jacking system is available for load-bearing situations.

All woodgrain foiled sills allow for any potential heat build-up due to the darker colour of profile.

Energy-rated windows can be used in the bay configuration helping to reduce the cost of heating your home.

Is your bay load-bearing? Do not worry - we have the answer with our bespoke jacking arrangement. But remember if in any doubt, please consult a structural engineer. Angled Bay Pole Jacking detail

Window Energy Ratings Energy saving is incredibly important and so is keeping your fuel bills down. We are continually looking for ways to make our homes energy-efficient and one way is to choose new PVC-U windows, doors and conservatories. Not only will they help to keep your home warmer, they will reduce your energy loss. The British Fenestration Rating Council (BFRC) is an independent organisation dedicated to improving the energy-efficiency of fenestration products. The BFRC introduced the Window Energy-Rating (WER) labelling scheme to assist consumers to make an informed decision regarding the energy performance of a window. The energy-ratings label is in a colour-coded style and gives a rating based on the performance of the whole window (frame and glass) and therefore allows you to compare one window to another and make an informed choice. The ‘A’-rating is the most efficient rating and G is the least energy-efficient. Not only can it save an enormous amount of money on energy bills, which today seems to be the most expensive payout for many homeowners, but also it contributes to saving the environment. So exactly what are Energy-Efficient Windows? They are windows that help to contain and conserve heat within the home keeping out wind and rain, reducing condensation and yet allowing natural ‘free’ energy the warmth of the sun - to heat the home. They are easily recognised, just look for colour-coded label.

How will my new energy-rated windows help me? By helping you contain and conserve heat within your home in the winter and reduce your monthly heating bill. By helping you keep out the wind. By helping reduce condensation. By contributing to improved sound insulation. By giving you ‘peace of mind’ knowing that you have played a part in protecting our planet for future generations. Please ask for more information about our energy rated windows. 12

Our door and window fittings match...... We decided that door and window fittings should be the same shade of colour. Why should the attractive highly polished gold finish on your door letterplate be slightly darker and slightly less shiny than the gold finish on your door handles? Why should your door knocker be different again? Why should the window handles in your conservatory not match exactly your door handles that are next to them? Our fittings go through the same finishing processes so mis-matching is a thing of the past!

In harmony with the environment We are strongly dedicated to good environmental practice. We believe that taking action on waste is essential since natural resources are being consumed at an unsustainable rate and climate change is being contributed to unnecessarily. We minimise our waste and run an extensive recycling programme that is continually looking for improvement. Wood is a natural resource and the timbers used in our composite doors are harvested from carefully managed fast-growing forests. 57% of the basic PVC molecule used in the manufacture of our frames is derived from salt, an element in plentiful supply with an estimated 50 quadrillion (one thousand million million) tonnes of dissolved salt in the world’s seas alone, with the remainder of the molecule derived from oil. The PVC-U used in our door and window frames is 100% recyclable and may be recycled 10 times and more without significant loss of integrity and structure. Aluminium and steel reinforcing sections are also recycled. We are committed to helping the environment and ensure that all parties in the supply chain of products have a similar responsible attitude. Welglaze actively seeks suppliers with a similar responsible attitude towards the environment and actively encourages its customers to do the same. Delivery routes are optimised to minimise our carbon footprint and the pollution on the roads. The high performance PVC-U doors and windows can deliver significant energy savings and as such they can play a positive role in making homes more sustainable by cutting carbon emissions, not to mention heating bills. We believe that the future of our planet is important not only for ourselves but for future generations.

Please note that due to our policy of continuous development, we reserve the right to change specifications without notice. Whilst every effort has been made to represent colours and products accurately, we cannot guarantee an exact match to our finished product due to the limitations of the printing process. 35
