A specialist product for period properties in need of replacement windows, Optima offer the perfect high-quality solution that fits right at home with the interior and exterior of your house. With its traditional outwards-opening style, the Flush Casement window has been crowned a previous winner of the G Awards for the Glass and Glazing Industry. Durable, secure, reliable and easy to maintain the product wouldn’t look out of place in a traditional pub, cottage or converted church. Whilst many believe timber windows are the only answer for old buildings, the UK designers and manufacturers overcome many design issues with traditional casement windows to present a leader in the industry.
Designed with history and a high standard of product in mind, Optima have taken the traditional appearance of historic window frames and added superior qualities – complete with monkey-tail handles. Offering one of the best selections of coloured and wood grained finished windows around, including dual-colour options, the best part is that Optima say ‘If we don’t stock it, we’ll make it’. Colour aside it features a deep bevel for a striking appearance and comes in a range of window styles available in BIM format.
The standard design can also be used to make superb French Casement windows with a double-opening style – without the central mullion to interfere with your view. Plus, there is the option to add Astragal Bars with a choice of chamfered or a sculptured section. Both styles of bar are available in the full range of colours and finishes.
Bring the best of both worlds together, the manufactures understand the needs of modern-day windows whilst maintaining the class and elegance of 20th century designs. With added benefits of maintained materials, thermal and acoustic insulation, security and weatherproofing, it’s hard to deny its impressive specifications. Triple sealed for improved weather resistance, the Optima Flush casement windows have improved weather resistance. Thanks to the five chambered and ‘aeroframe’ technology, it can reach the latest A++ WERs and an impressive U-value of just 0.8W. Featuring a standard co-extruded gasket with an optional 2nd and 3rd weather seal to aid thermal performance, it is one of the most energy efficient 70mm systems on the market.
Available as a standard Flush Casement Window or a French Casement Window, its maximum opening size is 900mm wide to 1200mm high which allows for flexible design.
Customers can choose between double or triple glazed options of 24mm, 28mm, 40mm and 44mm.
