Wickham Windows undertake design of windows to customer specification including opening specifications, glass style and colour finish as well as technical features such as locks, vents, pet holes, grilles, cills, screens and much more. Because we manufacture windows and doors ourselves in our dedicated facility and have years of experience we are ideally placed to transform your conceptions into reality.
Glass & Paneling
Design includes options for varying mixes of paneling and glasswork. Glasswork can be a installed in a variety of styles including Georgian bars, diamond squares, radiuses and picture styles as well as using specific materials such as self cleaning glass, thermal glass, smoked glass or glass with solar protection.
Finishing considerations vary depending on the material, aluminium and uPVC. Options include matt and gloss finishes in most colours, dual colours for internal and external matching and textures such as wood grain. Working closely with our customers we can help identify a solution that is right.
Grilles can be incorporated in a number of ways into your glazing system and we can help you to determine which system will be the most appropriate for you. There are essentially four options, complete pain separation which is the traditional method for glazing, or simulated division. There are three simulated methods, grilles between glass, permanent divides and simulated divides. Grilles give you a more rustic cottage feel to your property and are generally more expensive.
There is a wide range of hardware available, most of which is specific to a particular system. Many systems offer standardised fittings for generic hardware items such as locks, hinges and blinds. We at Wickham Windows can help you through the options during the design stage ensuring that you end up with exactly the windows your house needs.
There are a number of options for internal and external trim from external brick effect through to discreet internal edging. We can help you visualise the significant effect attention to detail can have on your windows. We also have a wide range of trim at our factory that you can look at and feel, helping you to get the best from your new install.
Screens are typically used on slide windows, vented windows and outward window sets and are available in plastic, wire and charcoal fibre glass meshes of differing densities and light diffusion. Loose mesh is ideal for situations where your requirement is simply to stop objects entering or leaving the room, such as cats, birds or small children, whilst finer meshed which can be more restrictive is more applicable for preventing insects entering.
