Product Details Company Info More from this company

Sash windows have been used in various forms for over 200 years and GBS intend to continue the uncompromising tradition of boxed frame construction.

GBS are able to reproduce any existing style of frame, sash horns, mouldings and any combination of glazing bars retaining their slender profile and double glaze.

Operating on new lead or steel weights or spiral balances are an alternative.

A hidden brush pile draught strip is fitted to the edges of the sashes which assists the sliding action and prevents rattles.

Made from hardwood, Accoya or softwood with hardwood cills.

A full range of sash fittings in a choice of finish are available including fitch fasteners, finger lifts, sash eyes with hook & pole and restrictors and security locks.

Finally windows are finished with a factory applied paint system in a choice of colours or stains.

Established in 1984 GBS has over the years developed a sympathetic understanding of a variety of property styles, carving their place in the industry by tailoring their products to reproduce the detail found in both period style windows and doors whilst complying as required with all the relevant building regulations.

All their products are made with uncompromising traditional methods, using a range of the best possible quality timbers available and a combination of traditional skills coupled with an investment in modern machinery. GBS products incorporate all of today’s requirements such as draught stripping, double glazing with low ‘E’ glass and Argon gas, to produce an energy efficient product whilst importantly retaining the original character. Their skilled staff are trained in achieving exacting standards and are keen to produce a variety of windows and doors, from traditional sliding sash windows and casement windows to a range of period style doors, all with great pride.

Based in Cheshire GBS are happy to travel around the UK to meet their customers who can vary from those who own the very modest of Victorian terrace house to a country farmhouse or grand archetypal Georgian Rectory . They also work with the National Trust and the many period properties they have to maintain.

GBS are always delighted to be involved and offer their experience in new build and total renovation projects, providing detailed drawings from their own library, liaising with architects and local authority planning and conservation officers.

GBS are always pleased to freely provide the best possible information and advice.
