Evolve System

As standard, the Build PVCu frames are produced from the proven and highly rated Evolve system with a smooth white finish. The sashes are fitted with spring balances, these assist the lifting and closing of the sash so the window can be opened and closed with minimum effort. Weather resistant brush seals are added to the running surfaces to facilitate easy opening. In addition, the window sash has a tilt-in-hinge design which makes cleaning the outside of the window from the inside very simple, an ideal solution for top floor windows.

If you require colour or woodgrain options see our Trend and Heritage ranges.

Glazing bars

Sculptured astragal PVCu glazing bars are bonded to the exterior and interior glass panes, with an additional spacer bar in-between which gives the appearance of divided panes. Simply choose the design that your project requires. Be aware that the over all size of your windows will impact the sizes of each square of the astragal design. Please contact us for customisation.

High-quality white furniture is fitted as standard with upgrade options to either chrome or satin chrome. The furniture suite includes one key locking Fitch catch and two sash lifts. The sash lifts are supplied loose to avoid damage during delivery.

Child safety

For the safety of young children we recommend adding Angel security/child stops to all windows. These easy to operate stops allow the window to open partially for ventilation up to a 100 mm and add an element of security to the open window.
