Bedford Sash Windows are a unique PVC-u vertical sliding sash window with the character and charm of an authentic traditional Box Sash window. Bedford Sash Windows have evolved through years of experience. They have been engineered to accurately replicate the soft smooth curves of the traditional sliding sash window of yesteryear yet hold all the benefits and advantages of modern fully reinforced PVC-u. The system is a very simple operation of two sashes within an outer frame that work independently of each other, on balance springs, designed to hold them at any height with an ingenious design feature allowing the sashes to tilt from the inside to facilitate safe and easy cleaning.
Fully concealed gaskets and weather-seals give the window a clean look, as well as improving long term weathering and thermal efficiency. To enhance that authentic look from the Victorian and Georgian periods, Bedford Georgian bars emulates the style of the period without the need for individual units of glass. Most PVC-u windows suffer from unequal sight-lines. This is where the glass in the opening section is smaller than the glass in the fixed section. To duplicate the equal sight lines of the traditional sliding sash window we have created a special insert which is fitted to the non opening section to reduce the width to match that of the opening sash creating the authentic look of a Sliding Sash window.
The unique, high quality compound used to create the renowned Bedford Windows smooth gloss finish means that your Georgian windows keep their pristine appearance and they don’t warp, rot or need painting- unlike their wooden counterparts. Bedford 70mm Georgian Windows offers superior engineering and superb designs. Form and functionality combine with visual appeal and sheer practicality. The layout and design of Georgian windows can never be left to computer aided design programmes. The need for symmetry is paramount and Bedford Windows skilled surveyors have many years experience and understanding of this complex task.
You can select a basic Georgian installation where the bars are placed in between the two panes of glass of the double-glazed unit, or you can have external Georgian bars fitted to really give your property that period look. There are different widths and thickness of bar, and they must be selected with consideration for your overall property style or a flat grid look will be the result. Bedford Windows work closely with many conservation organisations to achieve the authentic look. Bedford Windows have many years of experience in this area which has taught us that to achieve the authentic Georgian look, it is the width and the depth of the resulting glass panes that can make or break your design. Elements like opening sashes must be taken into consideration when designing the Georgian look.
