uPVC Windows - specification

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)  


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).

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.

We use 100% virgin uPVC to prevent discolouration and keep your windows looking nice and white for years to come!

Woodgrain Effects

Our Woodgrain finish products (made from uPVC, not timber) feature attractive whorl effects for a more realistic wood appearance than the fake looking lined wood grain pattern that many others often use. This means you get the beautiful look of wood without all the maintenance

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.

Easy Clean Position
(Easy Clean/Egress Hinge

With Easy Clean/Egress hinges you can slide the hinge to the middle of the window, and as the name suggests, this position makes it easier for you to reach and clean both sides of your window.

*Specifying Easy Clean hinges will revert to a 600mm wide section.



Egress Position
(Easy Clean/Egress Hinge
Available at Extra Cost)

In the Egress hinge position the hinge opens at approx 90 degrees to create a wider opening that's easy to climb out of, which is useful if you ever need to escape, for example in the event of a fire.

Shootbolt Locking

Ideal for adding extra security to the lower floors and more secluded parts of the home such as the back




Summary of Document Part F1 - Ventilation

New regulations, effective from 15th June 2022

It’s essential to have good air quality inside the home, to benefit both your health and the condition of the building. All rooms must have adequate ventilation to provide fresh air, and prevent condensation and pollutants building up.


Regulations Summary:

  • If it’s not technically possible to fit vents with the required equivalent area, get as close to the value as you can.

  • To avoid discomfort from draughts, trickle vents are usually positioned a minimum of 1.7m from the floor.

  • The following situations will require expert advice:

    • If the dwelling has only one exposed façade

    • If 70% of openings are all on the same façade

    • If a room has no windows

  • An open plan kitchen requires a minimum of 3 vents of the same equivalent area as for other rooms.

  • For the purposes of purge ventilation, all window and door openings must be at least 1/20th of the total floor area of the room.

Disclaimer: Please note, this is only a short summary of Building Regulations currently in place. For full guidance, please view the official documents, and consult your local building authorities and installer. It is your responsibility to ensure that windows and doors comply with the regulations for your property. We can take no responsibility for any compliance issues that may arise.
