Award-winning window manufacturer, Rooms and Views in Chester, has impressed residential property developer, Redrow Homes, with the Liniar flush sash window while collaborating on a brand new development of luxury homes in Buckley.
The development, called Abode, is aimed at the younger house buyer, with Redrow’s designers aiming for a combination of ‘traditional and contemporary in one dwelling’. The windows were said to be a ‘critically important’ feature, so Redrow approached Rooms and Views to ask if it were possible to create the look they were after.
The Rooms and Views team immediately thought of the recently launched Liniar flush sash PVC-U window, taking a sample, foiled in flat grey to give it a ‘modern edge’, across to the Redrow team.
Liniar flush sash is modelled on a traditional pre-1935 timber window style, with a z-section and two seals. The window sash fits flush to the frame, which, according to Liniar, gives it great aesthetics, unlike a ‘standard’ PVC-U window.
Made with Liniar’s lead-free, multi-chambered PVC-U profile, the flush sash reportedly offers a much higher thermal performance than timber, achieving a ‘U’ value of 1.3 W/m²k – as well as being ‘virtually maintenance-free’.
Redrow took the somewhat unusual step of building a house within its head office so they could see what the windows would actually look like, with Rooms and Views supplying the windows.
Steve Walsh, Redrow’s Construction director for the North West region, commented: “As soon as we saw the flush sash window, we knew it was what we needed for the Abode development. It ticked all our boxes – lead-free, energy efficient, easy to install – and best of all, it gave us the overall aesthetics we were looking for. The Rooms and Views team have excelled themselves with the window manufacture and supply.”
Kevin McClure, managing director of Rooms and Views, said: “It’s always a pleasure to work with a company that’s willing to go to extreme lengths to achieve perfection. This project is the first major development to use the Liniar flush sash in the UK, and we’ll now be rolling it out to similar Redrow developments nationwide.”
