Bison Frames has just completed the installation of 19 windows and a set of French doors in a period cottage in Somerset. The project was a particularly interesting one for the company because of the way it came about. The owners of the cottage in Isle Brewers in Somerset needed to replace their home’s ageing Crittall windows. The couple wanted the replacement windows to have truly authentic aesthetics but also to have all the benefits of low maintenance and thermal efficiency. The couple started to research the market and came across Bison Frames’ trade website, Tetley at Bison Frames takes.

Accept no other imitation – Genesis VS is the real PVC-U alternative to timber

timthumb (34)

The aim behind the development of the Genesis Vertical Slider was simple: to create a window that could become a viable alternative to timber windows in Grade II listed and conservation area buildings. Two years on, that’s exactly what has happened. The Genesis Vertical Slider is regularly being accepted for use in heritage buildings where previously timber would have been the only option, including Grade II listed and conservation area properties. While it’s hardly surprising given the level of acceptance it has achieved amongst planning officers, the first thing that strikes you about the Genesis VS is just how authentic.

A perfect partnership

PVCU windows and Grade II listed buildings have historically been strangers. For planners and conservation officers, these buildings (and all too often, conservation areas too) have meant one thing only when it comes to windows: timber.  Yet, in many cases, a modern timber window is inferior to its PVCU counterpart in terms of durability and thermal efficiency, not to mention more expensive. We wanted to develop a product that would give homeowners in listed and period buildings a genuine choice when they upgraded their windows. After much development and design work, the Genesis vertical slider was born.  The Genesis VS.

Genesis vertical slider gets green light for a Conservation Area property in Cardiff

timthumb (30)

Pontcanna is a district in Cardiff that’s rich in heritage and consequently much of it is in a Conservation Area. So when one Pontcanna homeowner wanted to replace the windows in his turn-of-the-century property, not only did he want to make the most of his home’s original heritage, he was bound by the regulations to do so. The property had originally had timber sash windows, but these had been replaced forty or fifty years ago by timber casements. The homeowner wanted to replace the ageing and out-of-keeping casements windows to bring back the original period looks and approached local family-owned.

Opening up the heritage sector

timthumb (29)

One of the first things you learn in this industry is that PVCU and the heritage sector don’t mix.We’ve all heard the stories about the planners who won’t consider PVCU as an acceptable alternative to timber. We’ve all encountered the owners of heritage homes who tum their noses up at the idea of ‘plastic windows’ . It’s an accepted wisdomthat PVCU and heritage are an uneasy mix and that PVCU in Grade II listed or conservation area buildings isn’t even to be contemplated.The awkward truth is that, until relatively recently, these opinions were all too easy to understand.Yes, PVCU windows.
