The flush sash is inspired by traditional timber joinery, but according to TruFrame, the product is ‘by no means limited to heritage applications in period properties’. A ‘less is more’ design mentality is said to lend itself perfectly to modern installations, through the use of alternative hardware and colours. The colour range now includes white, flat cream, rosewood, golden oak, white, black and cream foils, Chartwell green, anthracite grey (RAL 7016) and Irish oak, all of which are offered on a 10-day lead time.
Also benefiting from a new and exclusive milled decorative astragal bar, the flush sash window is manufactured using TruFrame’s four-step hand finishing process. This involves the checking of the corner contours for uniformity, levelling of the outside edges, checking the evenness of the corner grooves and the checking all apertures for any weld build up, making for ‘one of the most impressive and exacting PVC-U windows in the UK market today’ according to TruFrame.
The window has also been designed using the Liniar six-chambered EnergyPlus 70mm outer frame, along with a four-chambered 50mm deep, flush sash. According to TruFrame, the results are ‘A’ and ‘A+’ rated windows that are an ‘easy and relatively cost effective proposition’ for TruFrame customers, ‘with the optional benefit of buying everything from a single source and having the CE marking process taken care of as well’.
Patrick Firmager, marketing director of TruFrame, commented: “The response to the flush sash window has been simply overwhelming! We’ve spent a considerable amount of time developing and testing the product, and we’re pleased to announce that our flush sash windows carry Secured by Design accredited status, well in advance of the new Document Q for the new build sector.”
