Sash Window Upgrades

Traditional Victorian bay window containing three sash windows upgraded and double-glazed by Ryedale Joinery.

Upgraded Timber Sash Windows

The above image illustrates some of the sash windows we recently upgraded for a customer at York.  The windows are double-glazed with quality 14mm Planitherm sealed units.  We also fitted spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to minimize heat loss. Accoya® timber was used to manufacture the new sashes.  We spray painted the new sashes in our own painting facility.  

New Windows: Ampleforth North Yorkshire

New Windows in Accoya®

We manufactured new windows for the Village Stores and Post Office in Ampleforth, North Yorkshire.  The upper-floor has upgraded sash windows with 14mm Planitherm double-glazed units, spiral balance systems, and seals and brushes fitted to the frames, jambs and meeting rails to minimize heat loss.  The ground-floor windows contain the customer’s own artwork.  All of the windows were manufactured in the extremely durable Accoya® timber.

Ampleforth Village Store really is a “one stop” shop.  Its comprehensive offering includes a post office, news agency,  off license, groceries, fresh fruit and vegetables.

Three Sash Window Bay – North Yorkshire

Upgraded Sash Windows

We recently upgraded and double glazed the sash windows at the above property in North Yorkshire.  The new sashes were manufactured in Accoya® and coupled with 18mm Planitherm double-glazed units to improve thermal insulation.  The old sash cords and weights were replaced with a modern spiral balance system to offset the additional weight of the 18mm double-glazed units. We also fitted seals and brushes to the window frames, jambs and meeting rails in order to further reduce heat loss.

The windows were painted during the manufacturing process in our own spray-painting facility. Paint is essential to protect new wood and spray painting is cost-effective during manufacture.  It makes good economic sense to have windows manufactured, painted, sealed and finished by just one company.

Sash Window Upgrades at Whitby

Upgraded Sash Windows

We upgraded and double-glazed the windows at the above Victorian house in Whitby, North Yorkshire.  Accoya® timber was used to craft new sashes and frames.  We always recommend Accoya® because is a dimensionally stable wood with outstanding durability – and guaranteed for 50 years when used above ground.  Planitherm Total (Argon gas filled) sealed units were used to double glaze the sashes.

Stand-up Paddle Board (SUP)

Stand-up Paddle Board

We recently made this stand-up paddle board (SUP).  The inner framework is in Accoya® timber and we used quarter-inch marine ply for the outer layer of the hull.  Lots of sanding and seven coats of varnish produced the glass-like finish you see above.

Measuring 14 feet by 2 feet 6 inches, at the widest point, it is an “all around” board built for stability in the water – which makes it suitable for beginners.  Sea trials were undertaken in Bridlington Bay.
