Stormproof Casement windows

Unlike traditional casement windows, stormproof casement windows feature outward opening sashes, which stand proud of the frame and are draught stripped to provide robust protection against the elements. In most cases the edge of the window is wider than the opening so when it is closed, it forms a protective lip over the frame for a better protection against extreme weather conditions.

What makes our stormproof windows so different is that it both challenges and embraces tradition, technology and preconception. Each and every window produced in our factory is bespoke and can be manufactured according to your exact requirements. We offer a wide range of Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian bar styles, colors, glazing and hardware options.

BMB Aluminium-clad Timber Windows

Our new BMB wood-aluminium-windows are based on a brilliant idea of combining natural aesthetics of an authentic wooden window with unique technical specifications of highly durable aluminium. Double advantage is guaranteed – wood creates a warm, welcoming atmosphere from the inside, whereas aluminium offers reliability and resistance to atmospheric agents. Moreover, aluminium will protect the wooden constructions for decades, thus saving you from the need to repaint them.

Just like the BMB high-quality-windows, the BMB wood-aluminium-windows are also available in various colours and forms. Furthermore, aluminium offers a wide range of surface finishes that blend in nicely with the colour of the wood. The BMB wood-aluminium windows – weatherproof from the outside and very cosy from the inside.

 

Acoustic glass in modern Sash windows

Noise pollution is a growing environmental concern and nuisance, especially in urban areas. Even the background noise of 70 decibels caused by outside traffic can cause disturbance and stress over a continued period of time. Acoustic glass technologies have been developed to combat levels of unwanted noise, whether it be for a translator’s booth, a house located near a busy road or an office next to the airport.

What is acoustic glass ?

Acoustic glass considerably reduces outside noise, especially near busy areas such as motorways, main roads and airports.

Acoustic glass consists of two or more sheets of glass, bonded together with one or more acoustic interlayers: Double glazed acoustic unit (DGAU). DGAU also provides insulation from rain impact noise. It can be used for interior sound insulation needs, such as office partitions and meeting rooms. The acoustic glass within a double-glazed unit comprises a special interlayer which acts as a dampening core to prevent sound frequencies from vibrating from one pane of glass to the other. This absorbs and weakens sound energy, helping to act as a barrier to noise. Interestingly, by varying the thickness of the sheets of glass, even better sound insulation can be achieved. Acoustic laminated glass also benefits from all the safety and security properties of standard laminated glass.

Designing with acoustics

Designing with acoustics in mind is just like any other part of the design process — you need to start with the basic system requirements. Some of the first questions to consider are “Where will the sound come from?” “And how much sound is there? These questions are important because the sound reduction properties of materials, including glass, vary depending on the wavelength of the sound occurring around the material.

The following factors are involved in the selection process:

1. Determine the glazing system that has the best noise reduction properties.
2. When using monolithic glass, increasing the glass thickness can help.
3. When using laminated glass, you can increase the glass thickness or use different glass thicknesses for individual glass lites.

Acoustic insulation is very important to create a space where sound does not hinder concentration and does not add to the day-to-day stresses experienced at work. You can keep the workplace at a sensible noise level so you are able to create an environment with less outside influences creating a more tranquil space.

Acoustic glass can be combined with many other products for multi-functional glazing, such as thermal insulation, solar control, low-maintenance and decorative glass.
