and heat retention. We do not supply the glass however it is recommended that double
glazed units be specified with a bronze coloured spacer.

weather-seals. The seals are secured into a groove in the frame and sash rebates
and are unaffected by paint or stains. Supplied in black finish as standard.
Saracen High Security friction hinges are fitted to all opening sashes. These hinges
are produced from stainless steel to provide greater resistance to deformation when
the window is under attack. When the sash is open they provide easy access to the
outer surfaces of the glass allowing easy cleaning from the inside of the building.
The hinges allow variable opening of the sash to give complete control of ventilation.
