FLUSH CASEMENT WINDOWS - TIMBER & ALU CLAD

The Livingwood timber flush casement window system is based upon a Scandinavian design. It has been honed over the last few decades to create a range that is both aesthetically pleasing but also achieves some of the best thermal performance of any comparable window on the market today. It is available in wood only or can be aluminium clad.

standard timber or aluminium cladding

All Livingwood windows have the ability to be clad in aluminium. Sometimes described as composite windows, aluminium cladding creates a virtually maintenance free framework while still benefiting from the enhanced thermal performance of a timber window.

The aluminium clad option is available as both double and triple glazed and in any standard RAL colour.

A full range of non standard shapes and sizes are available although please note that round and curved head windows are not possible aluminium clad. The choice of aluminium cladding enables a two colour option at little additional cost.

The design is enhanced by slender frame profiles that allows for more light and better thermal conductivity than other systems with thicker frames.

Technical specification of window

Paint finish, Teknos micro-porous paint system, base coat followed by two top coats in any one of 250 Classic RAL Colours available. There are also stain options available.

Aluminium clad windows are painted with a powder coating system and painted to a standard gloss rating of 65% as standard, however other gloss ratings are available at extra cost.

All timber as standard is sourced from within the Arctic Circle from slow growing Redwood that is classed as a semi hardwood; this is then laminated and graded so the two external faces have virtually no knots, resulting in a paint finish second to none.

Depending on the window type the ironmongery is either PN from Denmark or ASSA from Sweden.

Trickle vents are available as an option and are hidden under the head of the window on the double glazed system and have no visible external hoods as the sash vents around the frame, the internal ventilator is available in brushed aluminium, white or brown. Acoustic trickle vents are available as an option.

configuration

All flush casement windows are available in projecting top hung, fully reversible, side hung and side slide. Fixed dummy sash’s can be incorporated for even-site lines. They can also be specified with trickle vents (various options), child restrictors and night locking ventilation.

 

Materials

Manufactured from the highest quality materials, unlike many windows all timber is laminated and graded to remove knots and give enhanced dimensional stability. The removal of knots also creates an enhanced paint finish or a better base for clear lacquer internally or stained finishes. The seals are designed for the harsh Scandinavian climate and will remain airtight even after being shut for long periods. All windows are supplied fully factory finished with a spray applied micro porous paint system that enables the timber to breathe and subsequently results in a paint finish that is guaranteed for 5 years (stains 2 years). Due to the advanced spraying facilities and the quality of timber used our paint finish is one of the best currently available.

Standard, Double or Triple Glazing

The addition of the aluminium cladding enables the simple incorporation of triple glazing which enhances the thermal performance of the window. There are two options available depending on the size of sash required. Our glazing packages are all based around the best available technology. Standard glass is low e coating float glass. Double glazed units achieve a centre pane U value of 1.0W/m²K, while triple glazed units can achieve centre pain U values of 0.6 W/m²K.

Other options include;

  • Solar control
  • Venetian blinds within the glass
  • Acoustic glass
  • Various options for obscure glass

Special glass

Our flush casement windows can be supplied with stained glass or leaded lights.

Different styles

The flush casement range is extremely versatile. We are able to produce frames in various shapes. We can incorporate glazing bars in either stick on or structural forms.

Finishes

We offer a range of RAL colours and the option of different internal and external colours on the same window. Any colour from the RAL classic range is included within the price however special colours are available upon request. A range of stains are also available.

Technical details and drawings

We needed an elegant replacement for doors which form a prominent feature of our bungalow facing south-west overlooking the sea. Draught resistance and triple glazing were key requirements and the Tilt and Slide door from Livingwood Windows ticks all of the boxes. The recommended specialist fitters took great pains to ensure that the installation met with our needs and went smoothly.
