06 Mar Geltsdale’s Guide on Popular Window Styles
Geltsdale is a leading supplier of windows in Cumbria, and North of England. We are here with a guide to discuss the popular window styles that you could install in your home and make it look modern, at the same time secure your home with warmth.
If you need new windows–whether to replace your current ones or for a new build or glazed extension–one of the things you’ll need to decide is which window styles are right for the job.
Here are three popular window styles for you to choose for your home.
1. Casement windows
Casement windows are fastened by one or more hinges to their frames. The opening casements can be hung on top, bottom or side of the hinges attached to the window frame. Casement windows have been around for decades–originally, there was only one frame that was hinged into a stone or timber frame opening.
At Geltsadale, we have a wide range of styles and decorative finishes available to complement any house type. Our casement windows in Cumbria and Carlisle come with certain attractive features.
- Inliten 60mm & 70mm profile systems
- Very easy to operate
- Multi-point locking systems as standard
- Range of opening configurations & styles available
- Secure, stylish and durable product range
2. Vertical slide windows
The Vertical slide window, a type of sash windows has been one of the most popular types of windows in the UK for centuries, offering solid practicality and elegance.
Although their popularity briefly dropped in the 1960s to coincide with the construction of more modern buildings with casement-style windows, a shift in attitudes towards conservation at the beginning of the 1990s culminated in an increased appreciation of architecture and aesthetics.
Our Vertical windows in Carlisle are a cost-efficient solution if you stay in an older property or something more modern. Some excellent highlights of our vertical windows.
- Inliten 70 mm profile device
- Energy efficient
- Double or triple glazing available as normal
- Various styles and colours.
For vertical slide windows, a vertical window blind is a perfect option. If you want bespoke vertical window blind in Cumbria, you can come and visit our blind collections in Cumbria and Carlisle.
3. Tilt and turn windows
Tilt and turn windows can be opened in two different ways–either by tilting vertically for safe airflow or by turning horizontally inwards for complete opening.
When opened vertically, tilt and turn-style windows can provide the living areas in which they are installed with a secure source of ventilation. Multi-point locking systems could help make your home even safer. The’ Turn Position,’ the window opens a complete 90 degrees inwards, making it ideal for escaping a fire escape.
Tilt and turn windows can be an attractive option for many rooms in the house, due to these qualities and the wide range of material and design options available.
Here are some of the reasons what our tilt and turn windows in Carlisle can offer you
- Very easy to clean from inside and outside the glass
