What Are The Different Types of Windows?

It may seem a window is a basic object made of glass with the same function as any other one. In fact, you’ll be surprised to know, there are different types of windows on the market. In this article, we’ll go through the types of windows we offer at Salop Glass and explain each of their benefits.

Types of Windows 


Made with an unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC), it is a lightweight but strong plastic material. These windows are cost-effective and energy efficient compared to other window types. They’re easy to clean and durable, making them suitable for all homes. Our well-known Residence Collection of UPVC windows are low-maintenance and thermally efficient which reduces heat escaping. 


Our flush casement windows are both luxurious and allow for excellent ventilation for indoors while offering superb levels of security and safety. They’re also thermally efficient, unlike timber windows, and allow natural light to fill your home or work space to create a bright and uplifting atmosphere. We supply and fit replacements for your old steel windows. Heritage windows are perfect for listed buildings or refurbishment models.These designs are made to replace the steel windows with an authentic finish.


These high-tech made-to-measure timber windows are crafted by a Danish manufacturer from independently certified sustainably sourced materials for a stylish and natural finish. Rationel Windows are durable, weather resistant and water-tight – which makes them suitable for British weather! Built to resist extreme wind speeds of 27m per second and 600 litres of rain water without damage or leakage. Each model is tested according to national and EU safety standards. 


Looking for windows that are the best of both worlds? Composite windows are attractive, energy efficient, long-lasting and low-maintenance. What makes them better than timber windows is they are more effective for insulation purposes. The aluminium materials used in composite windows imitate the benefits and specifications of timber, but don’t experience rotting or wear and tear overtime. Our composite windows are made using high-quality wood sourced from sustainable trees and a powdered aluminium coating to shelter against harsh weather conditions and the sun’s rays.
