The History of Timber Windows
Have you ever been interested in how a 'window' became a 'window and where it come from?
The origins of the timber windows have been the subject of much investigation and speculation. We can safely assume, that the Romans were the first to experiment with glass in their windows – this initially appeared in Alexandria around 100 AD. Well read on and you will be given a short excurse to the past...Read more
What is acoustic glass?
Noise pollution is a growing environmental concern and nuisance, especially in urban areas. Even the background noise of 70 decibels caused by outside traffic can cause disturbance and stress over a continued period of time. Acoustic glass technologies have been developed to combat levels of unwanted noise, whether it be for a translator’s booth, a house located near a busy road or an office next to the airport.

Flush Casement windows
BMB Flush casement windows, unlike stormproof, have a sash that closes directly into the frame and therefore sits flush within the outer window frame. This design is evident in many period houses where the original windows still exist.Now with the drive towards energy conservation the design of the flush casement has been modernised to make it much more energy efficient. This includes larger rebates to accommodate double glazing, draught sealing, and the use of high security multi-point locking hardware.
Sliding Sash windows
BMB Sliding Sash windows are designed with the aesthetic of a traditional sash window, but have the benefit of modern high security features, engineered timber (minimises seasonal movement and jamming), and double glazing which utilises enhanced insulating glass and has a centre pane U-value of under 1.3 W/m2K, as standard.
This, together with the high performance weather seal, minimises heat loss and reduces drafts which in turn saves energy. This combination also reduces noise.
What are the benefits of timber windows
We are happy to introduce our new IV78 profile system wooden windows, which offer the following advantages in comparison with the traditional IV68 wooden window profile system:
- The IV78 profile is 10 mm thicker than the IV68 profile (78 mm thick); therefore it offers better thermal characteristics;
- Up to 44 mm thick glass packets may be installed into the windows, which helps to improve heat and sound insulation characteristics;
- The IV78 profile is much more rigid than the standard IV68 profile.
