There are many types of UPVC window. Most windows that have been installed over the last 30 years would be described as ‘casement windows’ – but it’s not a widely-known fact that there other types of UPVC window available. There are ‘vertical sliding’ windows, ‘tilt & turn’ windows – but recently a new kid on the block has emerged – The ‘Flush sash’ window has arrived and this style is becoming more and more popular.
What’s the difference? Well a flush sash window is one that has been designed to look like a traditional timber casement window. The main reason that homeowners might opt for a flush sash window is the aesthetics. A flush sash window looks very neat and tidy from both inside and out. The opening parts of the window are designed to fit neatly and entirely within the frame and the end result is that the opener does not protrude past the projection of the window-it sits flush with the frame – hence the name ‘flush sash’.
