On this page, we look closer into the individual features of some of our most popular pieces, such as our handcrafted casement doors and casement windows.

 

Wooden Sash Windows

 

The sash window style dates back many years and is a recognisable feature of Georgian and Victorian properties in Wimbledon and across the UK. ‘Sash’ derives from the French word for ‘frame’, which describes the single framed glazing of wooden sash windows. Unlike casement doors and windows that swing open, sash windows are made from two panels (sashes) that can slide one behind the other to create an opening.

 

Key features of sash windows:

 

  • One or more panels known as sashes that most commonly move vertically
  • Commonly found in period properties, listed buildings and conservation areas
  • High-quality timber frame that offers durability and aesthetic appeal
  • Traditionally use balancing weights, pulleys and springs to assist with opening

 

Casement Windows

 

Casement windows come equipped with two or more hinges on their sides which allow them to swing either inwards or outwards. They often come in pairs so they can open away from each other to create a large opening. Like our wooden bi-fold doors and other bespoke products, our casement windows are made from quality timber and come with a range of modern, custom features. Our customers in Wimbledon love the versatility of our products.

 

Key features of casement windows:

 

  • Either top or side hung hinges attached to allow them to swing open
  • Total window can be opened wide to allow plenty of ventilation
  • Available in a range of lipped (storm proof) and flush designs
  • Wood frames are tight fitting for exceptional noise and heat insulation
  • Difficult to break as the locks are often ‘hooks’ which are embedded into the frame

 

Casement Doors

 

At Kingswood Joinery UK Ltd, we specialise in casement doors as well as casement windows in Wimbledon. You can truly bring the outside in without sacrificing on security or energy efficiency. Our casement doors offer excellent insulation and meet high security policies. Like casement windows, they are hinged so you an open the doors wide for easy access.

 

Key features of casement doors:

 

  • Modern locking system with hook bolt for a high level of security
  • Stylish slim frames to bring the outside in and let you enjoy the view
  • Made from either Softwood or Hardwood for a beautiful finish
  • Available with double glazing for optimum energy efficiency

 

Wooden Bi-Fold Doors

 

This style of door allows you to fully open an exterior wall to create a seamless transition between the outside and inside. Many of our customers in Wimbledon and the surrounding areas use wooden bi-fold doors next a patio area to join the outside and inside space. If you have a period property with wooden sash windows, our wooden bi-fold doors are perfect to stay in-keeping with the style of your home. All our products are made bespoke.

 

Key features of our bi-fold doors:

 

  • Frameless design to create continuity between inside and outside spaces
  • Can be folded back completely to show off a landscape, garden or view
  • Manufactured in our own joinery workshop using high-quality timber
