'High Performance Flush casement' means that the opening window closes flush into the outer frame, an attractive and often required style for windows in conservation areas and listed properties. MB Woodcraft high performance flush casement timber windows offer a modern approach to the traditional style of window commonly found throughout Great Britain.
They are able to compliment both a modern or period home alike, whilst behind the scenes you can be confident that the windows will stand the test of the British climate. This is done by the addition of a high performance dual seal rebate for security and weather protection. Using concealed friction hinges and multi-point locking systems, yet still allowing the casements to sit in line with the frame itself, as with the conventional flush casement timber window.

1.2 U-Value U-Value measures how well heat is transferred by the entire window/door frame, sash and glass - either into or out of the building. The lower the U-Value number, the better the window or door will keep heat inside a building on a cold day. Our Window Systems have achieved a u-value as low as 1.2 [W/(m2.K)] in thermal simulations (accredited through BFRC)
