A window style is the descriptor used to describe how a window opens or where it is hinged, are Casement, Sash, Tilt & Turn and the newest, Flush.
Opening outwards, these windows are hinged at the top or the side and can sit either flush within the frame creating a flat surface from the outside creating establishing a more modern look or can be a traditional fit to create a more classical aesthetic.
The perfect all-rounder, with adaptability of layouts and designs, a casement window allows you to have control and to choose a design, whether jazzy or plain, that suits you and your home, making you happy for years to come.
Tilt & Turn
Hinged at both the bottom and the side, this style of window is a master of flexibility and adjustment. Hinged at the bottom these windows tilt into the room to allow for ventilation, however with the turn of the handle they utilize the side hinges to allow the window to swing fully into the room for extra ventilation and easy cleaning.
These windows are perfect for when your outdoor space is limited and you live on a higher floor where cleaning the windows isn’t so practical.
Sash windows typically have two panes, one that is vertically over the other where both panes can slide to allow for ventilation from top or bottom.
Fitted with the best possible hardware, sturdy hinges, locking handles and high security locks, Optima meets the high standards of hardware that is required by the ’ Secured by Design scheme. You don’t have to comprise the safety of your home for style but rather choose a product that impeccably combines both practicality and style.

In addition to either double glazed units the design of the glass can include obscure (choice of designs) and any of the following, should you wish:
- Georgian grill/bar – bars inside the glass unit
- Astragal bar – bars on the outside of the glass unit

Double Glazed Energy Efficient Units
It’s never been more important to try and reduce your carbon footprint but ensuring that your home is as energy efficient as possible. Not only is this good for the planet but it means that you’ll reduce your energy bills and keep your home warmer in the winter.
In our double and triple glazed units we use low iron and a low-E softcoat glass that utilizes advanced coatings to retain warmth from within the home whilst also allowing for natural heat from daylight to be captured. They also include a Warm Edge Spacer bar made from a highly insulating composite plastic that reduces the thermal bridge between the two panes of glass, thereby reducing condensation and cold spots. Finally the units are filled with argon gas which is a colourless, odourless and tasteless gas that provides optimum thermal insulation whilst being both non-toxic and inert. Using argon gas in our products allows them to achieve a higher energy rating compared to units using air.
26% of all domestic heat loss is through the windows, which is a staggering event and improper efficiency means your energy bills can increase. Choosing a window that is energy efficient and offers warmth retention is imperative for an efficient and warm home. On average 22% on energy bills are saved* when using energy efficient double glazed glass.
*22% savings are typical but each home will vary. Example is for a semi-detached, 3 bedroom UK home saving £179 per annum for an A rated window (source Glass & Glazing Federation and Energy Saving Trust) with an annual gas bill of £800 (source: Department of Energy and Climate Change).
Triple Glazed Windows Windows
Triple glazing is well established in many parts of Europe and is becoming increasingly popular in the UK. The windows are more energy-efficient than modern double glazing. The additional pane of glass and gas filled cavity provides enhanced insulation.
Triple glazed windows can also provide outstanding acoustic performance, minimising noise levels from outside. This could benefit you if you live close to a road or in a densely populated area.

Excellent service given by friendly and professional staff. The quality of work carried out was done efficiently - Left very neat and tidy.
This was the 2nd time I'd used Dorset Windows. Their fitting is very good, the product is a good solid and attractive range at a competitive price. On both visits, one exterior, one interior, when they had gone you wouldn't have known they'd been, it was left spotless.
Excellent service. Informative. Prompt supply and fit. Problems with manufacturer quickly remedied. Very friendly family run business. Warranty delivered by hand with flowers, which was a nice touch.
Friendly family service, all appointments kept on time. Workmen friendly and polite, did a good job and left everything clean and tidy when they had finished. This is the third time we have used this company.
The quotation was very straight forward and understandable with no pressure selling. The work was done on time to a high standard to the specification of the order. The installers did the work efficiently and in a friendly manner.
Workmen turned up on time, completed work on schedule. Clean and tidy throughout, all redundant material taken away on completion. No mess inside or out. An excellent job.
The salesman was professional, knowledgeable and courteous. We are very pleased with the quality and installation of the new windows and doors.
Polite, friendly company. Kept us in touch with the process of installation of the conservatory. Workmen in all stages worked hard and efficiently. Would have no hesitation in recommending them as a company.
First date made and kept to look at job. Dates and jobs given and kept to. Overall i would recommend this company. I have used them 3 times in all.
Good company to deal with. Fitters worked hard and were polite at all times. Any issues were discussed and resolved in a constructive way.
How refreshing to have dealt with a company that treats their customers with respect, no pressure, and supply an excellent product.
Thanks very much for the great service in repairing the doors fascia. In this time of cut backs and business downturn it’s refreshing to receive such prompt personal service
The new fascias and soffits look great and we are very pleased with the work
Just like to say to you all at Dorset Windows Thank You for your help and consideration. The windows etc look great!
Many thanks for an installation that not only progressed smoothly which seems to be the norm with Dorset Windows Ltd.
We are very pleased with the whole installation, and would like to thank you and Martin and your fitters for a great job
The service was excellent from start to finish.
The quality of work and customer service was outstanding.
We are extremely pleased with our new conservatory. The work was carried out by hardworking, polite and friendly men. (Even in horrid weather conditions!) Each day they left our premises tidy. In fact every person we have spoken to at Dorset Windows has been first class!
Local business, very professional. Not the first time we have used Dorset Windows LTD, and we would not hesitate to do so again.
I have had all the windows in the house fitted with new windows. The service from start to finish was very professional. Great service throughout
Extremely good service from start to finish. A small problem with back door - very soon got sorted out. Would recommend the service and the quality of workmanship - Very pleased.
Had some windows fitted by Dorset Windows. Great company to deal with. Very friendly and reliable. Nice windows and nicely fitted and flat left clean when the job was completed.
This was the 2nd time I have used Dorset Windows and as before the service and quality of work was at the top. These comments are from someone with over 40 years spent in the construction industry.
Fast, efficient service with polite staff. They kept me informed of any dates or time changes at all times, which was mostly due to the weather.
The job was done with a minimum of disruption. The two operating got on with the job, stopping only for lunch, we were grateful to have two pleasant young men working on our home.
I would recommend using this company. The fitter were polite and clean, nothing way too much trouble for them. From start to finish it went smoothly. I would rate the company 10 out of 10.
One 4 panel and one 8 panel circular 1936 wooden bays and one front door replaced with minimum mess considering poor weather conditions. Products supplied excellent and soundproofing is very good considering main road location. Very little repair work required just paint re-touching. Installers were very efficient and polite and left the site spotless. Would highly recommend Dorset Windows.
