Looking for modern windows? Find out more about our Slimline windows!
Since the 1980s, uPVC double glazing has taken the UK by storm. This low maintenance, naturally insulating and cost-effective material has enhanced many a home for an affordable price. Still enjoying considerable popularity today, uPVC windows have experienced significant enhancement, none more so than our exclusive uPVC slimline windows. If you’re in the market for modern uPVC, these are a must-have and here’s why:
Stunning, contemporary appearance
Aesthetic features that are associated with a modern or contemporary style include clean, slender lines. As a general rule, aluminium windows tend to have slimmer frames than other types of window so they’re better suited to this look. However, our slimline windows feature ultra-slim profiles, just like aluminium windows, allowing them to achieve a contemporary aesthetic just as well.
The added bonus of these slender profiles is that they enable us to fit them with 12% more glass than a standard window. So, they’re much better at brightening up your home than other uPVC window systems too.
Modern thermal performance that’s fit for the future
Although uPVC is a natural insulator and has always insulated homes very well, modern advancements in technology have enabled our slimline windows to truly excel in this aspect. In order to comply with Building Regulations, replacement windows must have a Window Energy Rating (WER) of at least C. However, Sheerwater’s slimline uPVC windows are fitted with innovative, heat-trapping chambers, helping them to achieve an energy rating of A+. So, not only do they meet the insulation requirements of today’s windows, they’re fit to meet any future ones too.
Maximum protection for your home
In January 2019, there were 592 recorded burglaries in Surrey, highlighting the importance of protecting your home from unwanted intruders. As windows are a common entry point used by burglars, they, therefore, need to be designed to prevent entry. However, breaching your home will be incredibly difficult with our slimline windows. This is thanks to:
- Trojan multi-point, shootbolt locking systems, which secure them at multiple points in the frame
- Security glazing that prevents the glass from being removed.
- An outside wall thickness of 3mm, making the framework incredibly rigid
The combination of these features is a window that is as secure as any modern window system on the market.
But not just from intruders…
In addition to keeping uninvited visitors from entering your home, they’ll also keep out the weather and any draughts. This is thanks to bubble weather gaskets that form a perfect seal when the windows are shut and our purpose-built drainage system, which diverts any water away from your home. As you would expect from any uPVC window, any grime can be wiped away with complete ease, so the upkeep they require is nice and low too.
