French Windows

French win­dows (or Fly­ing Mul­lion win­dows as they’re also known) are designed in the style of French Doors. Styl­ish, secure and ver­sa­tile, they add a sense of ele­gance to any home. The big design fea­ture of French win­dows is the abil­i­ty to open either one or both sides simultaneously. 

When both win­dows are opened you are greet­ed with a com­plete­ly unob­struct­ed view and max­i­mum ven­ti­la­tion from your win­dow which also dou­bles up as a fire escape exit.

Trust us to make your prop­er­ty safe, secure and smart when­ev­er you need us

6 reasons to buy your windows from evander


French Win­dow Materials

Our French Win­dows come in three main mate­ri­als. uPVC, Tim­ber and Alu­mini­um. uPVC is strong, durable and requires very lit­tle main­te­nance. Alu­mini­um French Win­dows offer great longevi­ty, are extreme­ly tough and look excel­lent on most mod­ern homes. Tim­ber win­dows, although more expen­sive, cre­ate a tru­ly unique look and feel to your win­dows that you can only get with real timber.

Weath­er you choose uPVC for a clas­sic fin­ish, alu­mini­um for cre­at­ing a stun­ning look for mod­ern homes, or tim­ber for a tru­ly unique and bespoke style, buy­ing your new French Win­dows from Evan­der guar­an­tees you strong, reli­able and beau­ti­ful win­dows for your entire home.


Let the out­side in

As men­tioned above, French win­dows give you the abil­i­ty to open one or both win­dows. This gives you a much larg­er open­ing than most oth­er win­dows, which allows for a large amount of ven­ti­la­tion into your home.

French Win­dows real­ly show their val­ue when ful­ly opened, fac­ing a scenic view or gar­den. French win­dows, like case­ment win­dows, are fan­tas­tic at let­ting in a lot of nat­ur­al light and giv­ing the illu­sion of extra space. 

The oth­er main ben­e­fit of French Win­dows is that they can be used as a fire escape. With the mul­lion attached to one of the win­dows instead of the frame, you are able to quick­ly and eas­i­ly open both win­dows ful­ly to cre­ate an unob­struct­ed exit.

Dou­ble and Triple Glazing

When replac­ing your win­dows or hav­ing new glaz­ing fit­ted, it’s impor­tant under­stand the dif­fer­ences between dou­ble and triple glaz­ing. They both have their own indi­vid­ual ben­e­fits, so a big fac­tor will be bud­get and indi­vid­ual pref­er­ence.

Dif­fer­ence

Dou­ble glaz­ing is two panes of glass in a sealed frame. Triple glaz­ing, as you can guess, is two panes of glass in a sealed frame with a third placed in the mid­dle. With the addi­tion of an extra pane, this does increase the cost, but the addi­tion­al price can bring a lot of extra ben­e­fits and the extra paid can soon become an investment.

Insu­la­tion

Dou­ble glaz­ing offers great insu­la­tion to your home so it’s under­stand­able that triple glaz­ing offers even more. Reports have shown that upgrad­ing your win­dows from dou­ble glaz­ing to triple glaz­ing can reduce your annu­al ener­gy bill by up to 50%. This, of course, is assum­ing that the rest of your house is well insu­lat­ed too. There’s no ben­e­fit of hav­ing well-insu­lat­ed win­dows just for the heat retained to seep out an old, drafty front door.

The green­house effect”

Most home­own­ers will be famil­iar with this term. Most peo­ple feel they can con­trol the cold weath­er by get­ting bet­ter insu­la­tion, Where­as in sum­mer, typ­i­cal­ly south south/​west fac­ing win­dows, can increase the room tem­per­a­ture to unbear­able levels.

This is where triple glaz­ing can help as it has a low­er G‑Val­ue (low­er is bet­ter for glass, keeps you warm in win­ter and cool in sum­mer). Dou­ble glazing’s G‑Val­ue is typ­i­cal­ly around 70% and triple glaz­ing is around 30%-50%.

Safe and Sound

Home secu­ri­ty is always a big con­cern. Two-thirds of all break in’s occur through the front door, back door or a ground floor win­dow. To have stur­dy and secure doors, only to have old ground floor, sin­gle glazed win­dows with rot­ten frames, com­plete­ly removes that lev­el of secu­ri­ty. Remem­ber that bur­glars are oppor­tunis­tic and will always look for the eas­i­est point of entry.

Dou­ble glaz­ing cre­ates a stronger win­dow and triple glaz­ing only increas­es this strength as there are three panes instead of two. Also, triple glaz­ing is extreme­ly effec­tive for noise reduc­tion mak­ing this a must if you live on a busy street or near the main road.

Ener­gy effi­cient windows

Buy­ing a new door or new win­dows can be a daunt­ing expe­ri­ence and seem expen­sive. How­ev­er, when you start to realise how much mon­ey is wast­ed by poor ener­gy rat­ed win­dows, that expense soon turns into an invest­ment. Around 20 – 30% of the heat in your home is lost through windows.

Installing new, ener­gy effi­cient win­dows with dou­ble or triple glaz­ing will reduce this amount sig­nif­i­cant­ly, sav­ing you mon­ey and keep­ing the heat where it should be, in your home.
