Heritage Slimlite Windows
The Heritage Slimline Timber windows from Schnauber overcome the dilemma of authenticity versus energy efficiency that face many property owners who have a listed building or live in a conservation area.
Windows play an important role in defining the character of a property, especially for a listed building. Any repairs or alterations which could affect the character of such a building are subject to Listed Building Consent.
Schnauber’s Heritage Slimline Timber windows have the appearance of single-glazed windows but can be supplied either single or double glazed. Ultra-thin frames are designed with individually glazed window panes held together with a glazing bar. Modern manufacturing methods help us to retain the traditional look and feel – giving our customers the best of both worlds.
The Heritage Slimline Timber window is available as a flush casement design or a storm proof casement.
The glass panes can be 2 by 2; 4 over 4, 6 over 6 or even 8 over 8. With Schnauber it is whatever meets your needs.
Heritage Slimline windows are available in both a single glaze and a thin double glazed option.
