uPVC Profile Options

There are various uPVC windows profiles available for you to choose. The profile type, also referred to as the system, determines what the finished window looks like. Here, we we are concentrating on the profile options that Deceuninck extrude. We use these profiles to manufacture our uPVC windows and doors. The profile types are:

  • Chamfered (referred to by Deceuninck as Traditional 2500 Series)
  • Sculptured (referred to by Deceuninck as Heritage 2800 Series)
  • Flush (2800 referred to by Deceunick as Heritage Flush Sash)

Why choose a Deceuninck profile?  Deceuninck are a leading extruder of premium PVCu products. They are renowned in the industry for quality and excellence.

We cover in more detail what the main differences are below, but to summarise:

  • Chamfered (2500) sash windows offer a similar look to sculptured but with a sharper looking detail
  • Sculptured (2800) sash windows on any outward opening window stand proud of the frame, overlapping it all around
  • Flush casement windows have the opening sashes sitting within the frame and flush with the outside and inside face of the window

What is the Flush Casement Profile

The flush sash uPVC system is only available in the 2800 series profile. Flush sash uPVC windows replicate the appearance of timber. They have sashes that close into the frame and finish flush with the face of the window.  Typically they have frames that appear the same width, known as “equal sightlines”. This look is achieved using dummy sashes. It undoubtedly improves the appearance of a property, but is especially sympathetic to period properties.  The elegance and style of traditional timber windows are combined with all the benefits of uPVC Windows.

This range is ideal for those wishing to add or improve the period features of their homes and they also meet the requirements of many conservation areas. Please ensure before ordering that you check with your Local Authority’s planning or conservation officer.
