Retain original aesthetic appearance
We’ve built our reputation on being sash window restorers with our ethos to aim to foremost repair, renovate and retain original windows rather than replacing them. We value the aesthetic appeal of original sash windows and retaining this is of utmost priority.
Upon moving into draught proofing and joinery, we have focused our subsequent efforts with the same ethos, always endeavouring to keep original windows looking authentic, whilst offering the modern convenience that draught proofing brings.
Our Fortis DS Perimeter Sash Window Draught Sealing System was developed on this premise and we have succeeded in developing an integrated system that looks and performs superiorly.
Customised solution for period properties
The Fortis DS Perimeter Sash Window Draught Sealing System has been specifically developed with the particular challenges posed by period properties in mind.
Due to our extensive experience in the restoration of period properties windows and doors, we have managed to apply our knowledge to the traditional methods of draught proofing and customise it for our customers.
We are proud that our innovative system offers a bespoke solution to the specific needs of the period property market.
Repairs form an essential part of the system
Our clientele are discerning.
They know and realise that draught proofing sash windows without having first ensured all repairs are professionally done is nonsensical.
We won’t draught seal sash windows without first addressing the essential repairs.
Restoring function forms part of the solution
We think that our customers would like their windows to open and close properly as well.
That is why the Fortis DS Perimeter Sash Window Draught Sealing System ensures that the sashes are re-weighted, re-corded and renovated to move as smoothly as possible.
We replace pulleys if required to elevate the movement to an ever smoother plane of motion and apply special lubricants where needed.
The focus remains on restoration and longevity
Like any other system in our Fortis range of services, our main goal is to ensure the longevity of what we do.
We believe our customers want value for money when they spend their time and finances on sash window draught proofing or any other of our services.
So, we’ve added some of our restoration methods to our Fortis DS Perimeter Sash Window Draught Sealing System to ensure that the improvements we’ve made will last even longer.
Our ethos to repair, renovate and retain – for as long as possible – remains our focus in this system.
