Bow and bay windows give a spectacularly dramatic touch that adds value to your home. Most people tend to confuse the two styles, but they are technically different from each other.
They are both protruding windows featuring a large central window, flanked by two smaller windows. The central panel projects outwards while the flankers angle in to meet the wall, giving the entire structure a curved shape.
However, bay windows are set upon a wall that is similarly shaped. On the other hand, bow windows are set on a straight wall, and placed on a shaped sill. This means that while bay windows can only be fitted on walls designed for them, bow windows can be adapted to any large window opening.
Unlike flat windows, bow and bay windows need to be measured panel by panel. Additionally, you can have a different window style for the central and flanker panels. To get the width, the flankers as well as the central pane need to be measured from angle to angle.
The correct measurement is very important in the case of bow and bay windows. If you have any apprehensions about doing it yourself, contact us or call on 0800 954 8085. We will help you with it.
In order for your bow and bay windows to display their beauty perfectly, you need hardware that is not obvious. For this reason, our suppliers offer concealed hinges and gearing. This way, you get a smoother, more seamless fitting and as a result, a much more attractive window.
The slim and sturdy uPVC frames give you a greater area of glazing for more light and a better, unobstructed view. These narrow, lightweight frames are easy to operate. You can enjoy the sun on a windy day, or easily open them for better ventilation on a still one.
Your double glazing is fitted extremely efficiently and professionally for high levels of heat efficiency. Additionally, the engineered chamfered profile of the uPVC frames traps warm air in multiple chambers. As a result, these windows give you Windows Energy ratings of up to A+12.
Your uPVC bow and bay windows are installed with high-quality continuous gaskets. These keep out the rain and wind to keep your home cosy and dry, no matter how windy or wet it is outside. Additionally, the seal also keeps out any noise, giving you the quiet home you deserve.
The chamfered profile of the bow and bay windows is designed to mimic the classic elegance of old-time wood joinery, giving a sleek, clean look that’s perfect for modern homes as well as heritage properties. Choose a wood finish to get the traditional timber look for your home!
Everyone knows about the strength that uPVC frames provide. However, to give you a safer home, these durable windows are fitted with high security multipoint locks. You can upgrade the effective security fittings to easily achieve greater protection.
Bow and bay windows can be a stunning addition to your home. The large glass fitting looks beautiful and lets in much more natural light than any other windows. As a result, these attractive features can even boost the value of your property.
Additionally, they provide a point of interest in the room. Bow and bay windows add depth and dimension from both outside and inside. They add a quaint little corner that is sunny. This can be used to create a focal point around which your room is arranged.
If you have a beautiful garden that you’re proud of, these windows can allow you to project out into it. You get a wonderful wide view, highlighting not just your pretty windows but also your lush garden.
