Bay Windows

Bay Windows commonly comprise of Flush casement windows characterised by openers that close into the frame and finish flush with the face of the window. Window Warm can offer Bays windows in Softwood, hardwood, sash form and upvc in single glazed as well as double glazed.

Bay/Bow Windows

Nexus Bay / Bow windows are an attractive feature to any property. They also make a big difference to the feel of a room by making the room feel much larger. They are constructed using normal fully reinforced window frames in either the decorative or chamfered system. The frames are connected using structural bay pole assembly kits or reinforced corner posts for square bay / bow windows. The external sill, which the frames sit on, is welded together to create one sill under all the frames.

Flat –to –Bow Windows:

It is possible to create a bay or bow window from an existing flat window. To create a bay window (with brickwork below) building regulations are required and it becomes quite an expensive process. Alternatively a bow window can be created more cost effectively without the need for building regulations. A flat to bay window has the same frame construction as a normal bay or bow window but with a new timber / scalloped lead roof. It is the costumers responsibly to inform the local authorities, however Nexus Windows will advice and assist where required.

Architectural Bow Canopies (GRP Roofs):

An alternative to a timber / lead roof is to use a GRP bow canopy with an intergraded ceiling. This has an attractive external dental moulding and a high gloss finish. These are manufactured in a set range of sizes, which may have some design constraints depending on the size of your existing window. Most popular standard colours are white, brown and light brown, however we can paint to any colour on request.

Weight loading bay windows:

Under new building regulations load bearing bay and bow windows are now covered by Certas. All bay and bow windows are constructed using structural bay pole assembly kits, however under new building regulations load bearing bay pole jacks must now be fitted through the external sill into the bay pole assembly kit. This creates a structural support from the brickwork under the bay or bow window to the head of the aperture.
