Named ‘Timber Alternative Window Company 2017’ in last December’s National Fenestration Awards, Essex-based Masterframe specialises in PVC-U sash windows.
The company says its products are regularly specified to replace traditional timber in buildings that need to retain their historic looks, while improving energy-efficiency.
Carol Slade, sales and operational director, said: “We are especially honoured to receive this award because it is won on a number of votes received from the industry, rather than a panel of judges. We cannot thank those who voted enough for taking the time out of their busy schedules to help us win this award.
“The high-spec, PVC-U systems that we use allow us to combine the traditional aesthetics of a timber window with the many benefits of this modern material. As a Halo customer, we are also able to benefit from Veka Group’s Variations foil range which means we can specify a wide range of colours and a host of realistic woodgrains that are virtually indistinguishable from real timber. If required, we can even spray frames in a bespoke colour of the customer’s choice. Customers are often surprised that our windows are not timber and are always impressed with their authenticity.”
