We recently worked with a Hastings-based homeowner, where we were tasked with transforming this beautiful traditional family home into a thermally efficient space while still keeping its heritage charm. First built in the 1960s, one of the biggest challenges our team faced was working around a mixture of existing construction methods
After consulting with the client, our team decided that the Forma Timber Windows by Rationel were the ideal option for this project. This beautiful range of timber windows offers many modern-day features, while still boasting the authentic style of many traditional wooden profiles.
Many conventional timber windows can be prone to rot or warping after being exposed to harsh weather conditions for long periods of time. Rationel’s Forma timber windows are exceptionally durable, offering a 60-year life expectancy. Hastings’s homeowners can enjoy long-lasting timber windows with Rationel’s Forma range.
Our client wanted to keep their property’s heritage charm while also enjoying the benefits of a modern-day profile. Their previous windows were installed some time ago, and as a result they weren’t tailored to suit modern day living.
Despite being constructed mainly from timber, the innovative design of Rationel’s range means they offer exceptional levels of thermal efficiency. These timber windows work to catch warm air inside your home and keep cold draughts out, reaching U-values as low as 0.78W/m2K when opting for triple glazing. This can greatly reduce the need to use your central heating, helping cut the cost of living expenses for years to come.
Not only this, but Rationel’s timber windows can also help with noise reduction. Ideal if you live in a busy area of Hastings or are just looking to create a more relaxing living area, these timber windows will create a barrier between you and the outside world. Rationel timber windows are made from wood, delivering fantastic acoustic performance while helping make your home a relaxing and ambient space all year round.
Rationel’s timber windows can be tailored to match your home’s existing style. For this project, our Hasting’s client chose a stunning light grey colour for their timber windows. This perfectly complimented their home, adding to the natural colour palette of their living area. In addition, their kitchen already had beautiful grey undertones, which was a fantastic match for their new timber windows and delivered a truly bespoke style.
Rationel are passionate about their impact on the environment. Many timber profiles are sourced in a way that can have a negative effect on the planet. Each timber window supplied by Rationel are crafted solely from sustainably harvested wood, sourced from FSC-certified forestry. Enjoy stunning timber windows while keeping your carbon footprint low with Rationel’s Forma timber windows.
Perfect for busy homeowners, Rationel’s range of timber windows are also exceptionally low maintenance. Each profile is made from solid timber, right from the core of the structure to the outer layer. This results in a fantastically low maintenance timber windows that require minimal upkeep to continue looking as good as the day they were installed.
