Authentic Conservation Windows with Modern Thermal Performance Now Available From JELD-WEN

JELD-WEN has added an innovative new conservation window to its popular Stormsure range offering a timeless classic with a modern twist.

The new Stormsure Conservation window combines authentic styling with up to the minute thermal performance, providing energy efficiency, as well as an affordable solution to bespoke joinery requirements.  It also means that owners of period properties, heritage homes or country cottages can enjoy 21st Century comforts, combined with stunning aesthetics.

This high quality timber window features authentic traditional styling which can enhance the value of classic and country properties and is perfect for use in conservation areas, where timber frames may be required by planning authorities.

"We developed the Stormsure Conservation window in response to demand from self builders and housebuilders for an affordable and aesthetically pleasing solution for windows in conservation areas," explains the window product manager of JELD-WEN. "Many homeowners are recognising how they can enhance the value of a property by investing in authentic timber features, such as conservation-style windows, which provide an excellent long term investment.  The added benefits are that homeowners will also achieve greater energy efficiency and save on fuel bills, as well as reducing their carbon footprint."

The Stormsure Conservation window is available in highly engineered softwood and in luxurious oak, both of which are FSC Chain of Custody certified, meaning the timber is sourced from well managed forests.

As with all of the Stormsure range, the new Conservation window is fully compliant with the latest Part L Building Regulations and can be specified with U-values as low as 1.0W/m2K. It is double glazed  with Low-E glass as standard and is also available triple glazed to meet the higher levels of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

The window is available with a fixed sash or direct glazed area, giving customers greater choice of design and price options to suit their project. A robust, multi-point locking system is supplied as standard and handles are available in either polished brass, brushed satin or a white painted finish to enable purchasers to achieve a co-ordinated look by complementing other exterior features of their home.

The Stormsure Conservation window is weather tested to meet BS6375:Part1:2004, providing robust resistance against the worst of the British weather. It is also tested for operation and strength to meet BS6375:Part2:1987, ensuring durability and security.

All of the windows in JELD-WEN's Stormsure range are available in a choice of durable, factory finished or Hi-Build paint finishes, as well as primed and base coat stained options. JELD-WEN guarantees its factory Hi-Build painted finishes for 10 years and stains for six years, minimising the cost of ongoing maintenance. The company also offers the option of its market-leading '60 Year Lifespan Guarantee' on all Stormsure windows.
