Published: Monday, November 21st, 2016
Market grows for Flush Casement
The market for flush casement windows is booming as owners of period-style homes and other buildings understand that they may also enjoy the performance offered by the latest windows whilst protecting and complementing the key heritage aesthetics of their property.
Now Profile 22 offers the perfect solution for this key sector for the end customer, the fabricator and the installer with the launch of the Optima Flush Casement Window. Developed from the Profile 22 Optima system that was launched in 2016 to huge accolades the Optima Flush Casement offers a thoughtfully styled solution for the thousands of traditional properties in British towns and villages that are crying out for replacement but for which the owners believe their options are limited and expensive.
The Optima Flush Casement shares all of the virtues that have made the Profile 22 Optima system the most important new system to be launched for more than a decade including great aesthetics, precise dimensions, wall thickness and internal webs. Hardware is easy to locate, drainage is optimised and seals perfectly placed for long-lasting performance. The system surpasses the requirements of UK and EU Building Regulations and PAS 24 and is accredited by the British Standards Institute. With easily achieved high installed performance and ease of fabrication and installation, the Optima Flush Casement is now opening up this key market segment to Profile 22 fabricators and installers throughout the UK.
Great attention to detail
Attention to detail is superb: Optima Flush casement windows replicate more accurately the key details so important to the owners of heritage properties such as mechanically jointed sashes, dummy sashes, deep bottom rails, period cills and glazing bars and authentic hardware including monkey-tail handles and dummy peg stays. A huge choice of authentic period colours is available from Epwin’s state-of-the-art finishing plant in addition to enjoying compatibility with a huge range of Optima components and ancillaries.
Optima Flush Casements also enjoy the broad benefits offered by the Optima system: compatibility with standard Optima frame and transom and chamfered finish externally but with chamfered or sculptured frame style and astragal bars for a choice of internal treatments. And with standard 24mm IGUs an A+ Rating and U-value of 1.3 W/m2K are easily achievable. Quite simply, Optima Flush Casements look better and perform better than any other products of their type available today.
