The Growth of Sash Windows
2 August 2015
We are seeing spectacular growth of sliding sash windows through our factory this year. We identified this market as an area that we should focus on about 12 months ago and we are now beginning to see the pay off from that.
We are especially suited to this sector as we can offer a mixture of traditional weighted sash windows alongside the modern spring balance alternative alongside casement windows and curved special work.
We first developed our VS window in 2009 during the downturn after the the financial crash of 2009. This is now a mature product, well tested in the field and one of the best on the market
Our subsidiary Clifton Joinery supplies trade customers and has seen strong growth through Style Windows - a partner in Jersey. They are an up-market company with a strong customer base on the island and look set to be one of our three biggest customers of 2015. They have just completed a window order for Lord Jersey using our product. This all went very smoothly and the client is reportedly delighted with the work.
We have also seen a growth in the use of sash windows for orangeries this year, their use produces a stylish timeless feel and a great flexibility as they allow larger window sizes in better proportions than can be achieved with casement windows.
