Residence collection windows are constructed from uPVC, meaning they undoubtedly share a number of characteristics with other uPVC windows. However, there are some distinctive differences, which set them apart. Read on, as we outline some of the key differences between the two:
Generally, uPVC windows are constructed with frames that utilise a multi-chambered profile. Having multiple chambers allows the frames to lock in pockets of air, which increases their ability to retain heat. uPVC windows often feature 5 or 6 chambers in their frames, however Residence collection windows utilise 7 or 9 chambers, depending on the variation. This ensures for timber looking uPVC windows that perform excellently in terms of thermal efficiency, meaning they knock plenty of pounds off your energy bills.
Whilst there are uPVC windows that do a great job achieving a traditional look, little do so quite as well as the Residence 9 collection. Boasting traditional sightlines that have been expertly crafted under strict conservation area guidelines, they are one of the best windows available for achieving a 19th century window aesthetic.
Here at Emerald, our uPVC windows are available in almost any RAL colour, for full customisation purposes. A variety of woodgrain finishes are also available, allowing them to achieve a more traditional look. However, Residence collection windows come in a far more exclusive range of colours; solely available in a number of stunning heritage and oak finishes, they resemble traditional timber windows to the fullest extent.
Whilst uPVC windows are available with a number of hardware options, Residence collection windows can be fitted with their own distinctive, lavish range. This includes Georgian bars, butt hinges, handles in a monkey tail or tear drop design and a number of peg stays. Each additional option provides an extra area of customisation, so homeowners can truly make the windows feel like their own.
Emerald’s range of uPVC windows have been carefully selected for their ability to protect your home from adverse weather conditions. However, Residence collection windows come with the option of a specially designed storm-proof sash, alongside the usual flush sash variation. This storm-proof sash provides your home with an incredible layer of protection against the elements.
You can’t go wrong with a set of uPVC windows or any from the Residence collection; both provide a range of fantastic benefits to homes.
