Continuing their strong vein in announcements of new products to their already quality range, John Fredericks are pleased to announce that they are partnering up with sash window specialists Roseview Windows to bring to the market their very own new sash window.
The sash window Fredericks are bringing out with Roseview are exclusively their own and won’t be available from anyone else. So, right down to business, these are the specs you can expect from a Fredericks/Roseview sash window:
- 24mm low e sealed units to full A rated spec
- Tilt restrictors for upper and lower sashes
- Caldwell pre-tensioned ultra lift/torso balances
- Choices of white and gold furniture
- Full width bead handles to both sashes
- Non projecting cill with aluminium anti-jemmy bar
- Limit stops – shark fin
- Choice of run through or decorative horns
- Arched options available
- Deep bottom rails if required
There are a few different sash window manufacturers on the market now, so making sure a new sash window is released on to the market requires the window to tick all the boxes, which I think this window does. One of the features that stands out for me is the full width bead handles. These run all the way along the sash, as opposed to the traditional and much smaller hook type handles. When I went to the John Fredericks seminar in October they pointed out that not everyone liked the traditional tiny handles and that a few problems were reported, so with this new window they’ve listened and brought in this new feature. I’ve seen it. It doesn’t take anything away from the look of the window, it blends in nicely and will operate the window easily.
As the window market diversifies, niche products like sash windows are being promoted more and more now, so John Fredericks have rightly re-visited this area of the window sector and have brought out a new sash window which I think customers will really engage with.

I think that sash windows will become a lot more popular over the next ten years; now they are much more reliable and just as secure as casement windows there is no downside apart from the cost.
We have a nice sample sash window and we find that the customers will always go for them if they can justify the cost. Are there any figures to indicate the life expectancy of the new generation of uPVC sash windows?
No idea about life expectancy, but our casement windows are good for at least 3 decades according to our suppliers, so if these are made to same the standards and quality then I see no reason why these won’t last the same amount of time.
