The Tilt and Turn range features a dual opening mechanism for security, safety and practicality.

APS Residence 9 (R9) pvc window system

We proudly use the APS Residence 9 (R9) pvc window system, which is a top end luxury window brand which replicates 19th Century Flush Sash Timber Windows.

Only APS approved manufacturers can offer this authentic design to homeowners and to designers who want to incorporate this unique look in houses. Residence 9 can be considered for design specifications in Conservation Areas.

R9 accommodates 28mm double or 44mm triple glazing with market leading thermal and acoustic performance and achieves one of the highest classifications on weather test due to its robust design. Every Residence 9 window is made bespoke to requirements customising everything including the style, colour and hardware. The Residence 9 mechanical joints require finesse and attention and can only be executed with hand finishing by individuals who are masters of their trade. Beautiful French and Residential Doors are also available.

Cottage

The idyllic country Cottage is the epitome of rural, British charm, and the installation of Residence 9 windows will ensure the traditional grace of your property is long-lasting. Our Cottage windows perfectly encapsulate the quintessential British look and feel that made you fall in love with the property in the first place.

Finishes

Residence 9 offer a number of authentic oak finishes and traditional paint colours from ‘Grained White’ to ‘Silvered Oak’. Contrasting finishes on the inside and outside are also achievable, if that is what suits your cottage home best. Visit our Gallery and news sections to see how these different finishes have complimented other properties whilst keeping their aesthetic appeal.

Handles

It is essential that the handles and peg stays fitted to your cottage windows are complementary to both the frame itself and the interior of your home. You can choose Black or Pewter Patina in our handmade range. You could also consider the eclectic mix of a traditional Monkeytail shape in a modern Chrome or Brass type finish!

Hand Finished Detailing

Technology may have accelerated rapidly but there is nothing like adding a human element. Residence 9 combines contemporary machining processes with carefully hand finished joints to craft a beautiful window, every time - craftsmanship you will find on very few, modern alternatives as they are welded.

Village

APS is designed to replicate the flush sash designs found in cottage properties in our villages. It enables you to replace your window with an authentic design and in authentic colours, without losing the character appearance and feel of the period. Crucially, you can now achieve this in a virtually maintenance free composite material.

Authentic Butt Hinge

With your Residence 9 window, you can specify traditional Butt Hinges to maintain original features. Modern windows often lack this character as the hinges are hidden. The authentic ironmongery is crucial to maintaining an authentic kerbside appearance.

Handles

You can personalise your Residence 9 windows with a choice of handles. The Monkeytail and Peardrop designs were popular designs of the period. If your room is more contemporary you can also specify more modern finishes like Chrome, Brass or a Gorgeous Pewter Patina.

Weatherbar

Old timber windows often had a raised moulding that ran horizontally across the transom. This bar looked distinctive and gave the window depth and character. Its function was to shed dripping water and to increase the strength. That’s why we recreated the feature with Residence 9.

Period

Many properties in our cities were built with sash windows at street level and flush casements in the upper floors and rear elevations. These windows were usually tall and grand. Residence 9 is designed for this application and can be manufactured in sizes and styles to replicate the originals. Your Residence 9 windows will have deep ornate detailing to the inside, flush sash to the outside and can be fitted with period hardware such as handles and peg stays. Georgian Bar Latticework to the glass can be replicated using our bespoke sections.

Georgian Bar Latticework

Our bespoke sections are hand applied by Craftsmen to create the traditional Georgian Latticework found in Period Townhouses. The mouldings exactly replicate the deep decorative detailing inside and the chamfered putty line outside.

Bays and Cornerposts

Period houses often had bay windows. There were grand entrances to the front and Garden Rooms to the rear. You can authentically recreate these cornerposts and joints with your Residence 9 installation. If your house is from the 1930’s, then we can recreate your period bay windows. Our detailing is authentic.

Flush Sash

In the 19th Century the window designs had a Flush Sash. This photograph shows the Residence 9 Flush Sash appearance from the outside. Note the traditional Butt Joints where the sections are joined. This can only be achieved with Craftsmen and not with automated machinery and this technology is unique to Residence 9!

Townhouse

Living in an Old Townhouse can sometimes be at odds with a modern family lifestyle. The windows are likely to be single glazed, drafty and need regular maintenance. Some windows might not open easily or at all. Improved security may be on your mind. Morning condensation is such a bore. New Residence 9 windows will help resolve these problems and will enhance your home without detriment to the period features that actually drew you to the property!

Matching Rebates

Residence 9 is designed with an “easy clean” rebate which is finished to match your window. The design avoids sharp corners and undercuts which attract dirt. When you open the window, it not only looks the same but it is easy to wipe down and clean.

Deep Decorative Detailing

The internal shape and depth is authentic and gives an elegant and distinctively deep appearance to the strong sections. Residence 9 has a 100mm frame depth (most modern windows are only 70mm).

Noise and Thermal Insulation

Townhouses can now be upgraded to significantly reduce noise pollution. By specifying triple glazing for use with our 9 chambered frame design you can achieve market leading performance for sound and thermal insulation.

Georgian

The classical design of Georgian Windows have high quality, symmetrical detailing and an unmistakable style that offer delightful charm to the architecture of this period. Our Georgian design contains the same iconic and beautiful detailing, meticulously recreated to preserve the character of your property.

Georgian Bar Lattice

The Georgian Latticework of graceful, slim, glazing bars is instantly identifiable for a property of this period. You can specify Residence 9 windows with hand applied bars to match the decorative shape internally and putty line chamfer externally. The period features are authentically recreated with the benefit of high performance glass units.

Patterning

Whatever the original pattern of your traditional Georgian window, Residence 9 can cater to your needs. Custom builds to order allow all variations, such as “four-over-sixes” and “eight-over-eights”, as well as the more traditional “six-over-sixes” in Georgian patterning.

Window Furniture

Residence 9 windows in the Georgian style can come with interior handles, suitably reflective of the period and in a range of finishes. This authentic hardware detail can include Monkeytail or Peardrop shapes along with matching, working peg stays.
