Windows, the way they were meant to be...
The Residence9 Timber Alternative range offers all the aesthetics of timber, using a simplicity that showcases the excellence in joinery and craftsmanship, coupled with the benefits of modern state-of-the-art technology, improved energy efficiency and greater security features. Quite simply, the new Timber Alternative window range is totally unique and offers you a new style of window that is both practical and outstanding without the expense and high maintenance of standard timber windows.
Residence9 Timber Alternative is a new window system designed to replicate the 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Window. It can be considered for use in Conservation Areas due to its authentic appearance. This authentic design is also appealing to any homeowner who wants a top end luxury window brand.
Georgian Bar Latticework
The Georgian Latticework of graceful, slim, glazing bars is instantly identifiable for a period property. You can specify Timber Alternative windows with hand applied bars to match the decorative shape internally and putty line chamfer externally. The period features are authentically recreated with the benefit of high performance glass units.
Bays and Counterposts
Period houses often had bay windows. There were grand entrances to the front and Garden Rooms to the rear. You can authentically recreate these cornerposts and joints with your Timber Alternative installation. If your house is from the 1930’s, then we can recreate your period bay windows. Our detailing is authentic.
In the 19th Century the window designs had a Flush Sash. This can only be achieved with Craftsmen and not with automated machinery and this technology is unique to our Timber Alternative windows.
Authentic Butt Hinge
With your Tmber Alternative window, you can specify traditional Butt Hinges to maintain original features. Modern windows often lack this character as the hinges are hidden. The authentic ironmongery is crucial to maintaining an authentic kerbside appearance.
You can personalise your Timber Alternative windows with a choice of handles. The Monkeytail and Peardrop designs were popular designs of the period. If your room is more contemporary you can also specify more modern finishes like Chrome, Brass or a Gorgeous Pewter Patina.
Old timber windows often had a raised moulding that ran horizontally across the transom. This bar looked distinctive and gave the window depth and character. Its function was to shed dripping water and to increase the strength. That’s why we recreated the feature with our Timber Alternative windows.
Timber Alternative is designed with an “easy clean” rebate which is finished to match your window. The design avoids sharp corners and undercuts which attract dirt. When you open the window, it not only looks the same but it is easy to wipe down and clean.
Deep Decorative Detailing
The internal shape and depth is authentic and gives an elegant and distinctively deep appearance to the strong sections. Timber Alternative has a 100mm frame depth (most modern windows are only 70mm).
Noise and Thermal Insulation
Townhouses can now be upgraded to significantly reduce noise pollution. By specifying triple glazing for use with our 9 chambered frame design you can achieve market leading performance for sound and thermal insulation.
We offer a number of authentic oak finishes and traditional paint colours from ‘Grained White’ to ‘Silvered Oak’. Contrasting finishes on the inside and outside are also achievable.
