Adjust the Size of the Window to match your own measurements

Entering your measurements

This Step of the processes allows you to submit the sizes , in Millimetres (mm), that you would like the window manufactured to.

red arrow Width

 

 

 

Please change the size of the window to match your own measurements. Click on any size (Shown in millimetres) which appears with either a red arrow above them or just with as numerals with a blue line through (See above).

Current minimum

Amend each size as required, within any minimum or maximum production sizes allowed, which may appear highlighted in a black text box (See above)  

Adjustment

If you enter any size which is above or below the current maximum or minimum a text box will appear (See above).

Certain sizes will be automatically calculated based on other size information shown for each window. These appear as white numerals in a red text box (See above)  

 

Cill included?

The sizes confirmed will always include any Cill

 

Manufacturing  and measurement tolerances

Our manufacturing works within tolerances of 2-3mm.

 

Please ensure the sizes you provide are not tight brickwork opening sizes as your new window may not fit, always allow a tolerance of about minus 10mm in the width and minus 10mm in the height. (Reduce size further if your opening is not square, out of level or has protruding bricks as your new window must be installed square, level and plumb).

Assumptions
We will always assume :

  • The normal width for a side opening sash is 600mm, this is measured from the edge of the outer frame to the centre of the mullion (vertical bar). Exceptions: If the window divides into equal parts of less than 650mm (divided by mullions) then your side opener will be set at an equal division. However, if you specify egress hinges it will revert to a 650mm wide section. If you specify easy clean hinges it will revert to a 600mm wide section.
  • The normal height of a fanlight sash is 360mm, this is measured from the top of the frame to the centre of the transom (horizontal bar). Georgian bar, diamond and rectangular lead will be laid out according to our best practice.

An external cill is needed to aid the drainage of water out and away from the building to help protect the brickwork. The depth of cill needed will depend on how far back your window is set into the wall.

stub cill

Stub cill

A stub cill sits within the window cavity and is typically used when a cill is required to breach a gap between the new window and an existing structural cill. The stub cill can be placed to allow water to flow down on to the other surface that will drain the water away from the building.

 

150mm cill150mm cill

The 150mm cill is the most popular option for windows set approx 25 mm back from the brick face.

 

 

180mm cill180mm cill

A 180mm cill is typically used for windows that are set further back from the brick face, approx 50mm.

 

 

If the window has a cill as part of the structure of the house, eg. a stone or brick cill, you may not require a cill as there may already be sufficient means of drainage in place.

If you select to include an external Cill as part of your window order, it will be automatically included in the overall height of your window.

150mm and 180mm include Cill End Caps. Stub Cills do not need them and so they are not included.

Window BoardWindow Board

The window Board fits to the inside of the building as an internal cill. It is made of white pre-primed mdf board (to make it easier for you to gloss paint), and measures approximately 220mm deep x 25mm thick.
