What Are They?
Mechanical flush sash windows, or mechanically jointed Flush Sash Windows as they can also be known are simply to do with the joining of the window. For traditional timber windows, a lot of time was spent handcrafting corner welds, also known as the ‘mechanical sash joint’. When uPVC windows started to grow in popularity, this was phased out as it was deemed too time-consuming and costly. However, the technology has improved, allowing window manufacturers, such as Window Warehouse, to offer both mechanical and welded joints.
By getting a mechanical flush sash window, you’re simply investing in a window where the corner joint is separate from the rest of the frame. These are welded together by the manufacturer, providing you with a uPVC window that boasts the look of timber. This makes mechanical flush sash windows perfect for homeowners wanting to get a truly authentic looking window for their home.
