uPVC Casement Windows

All Wickes uPVC Casement Windows are constructed with a strong, hardwearing 70mm frame that will never flake, rot, peel or rust. They are available in a variety of styles; white, oak finish and white Georgian Bar.

We also guarantee that each one of our windows complies with the latest Building Regulations.

Changes to Building Regulations

On the 1st October 2010, New Building Regulations Part L states that replacement casement windows will be required to achieve a Window Energy Rating of at least a 'C', or a whole window (not centre pane) U-value of 1.6W/m2k. All in store Wickes windows now exceed this standard.

Window Energy Rating Certificate

Selected in store Wickes uPVC windows are now A Rated, and available to buy online and in store. Window energy ratings (WER’s) are becoming increasingly important, with the Government now enforcing minimum standards of performance. This improvement in energy rating, will provide you with reduced utility bills, a warmer home and insulation against unwanted outside noise - all whilst helping to protect the environment.

Window Energy Ratings use a simple traffic light 'A-G' ratings guide similar to the ones you might have seen on domestic goods like washing machines and dishwashers. The label displays the Window Energy Rating alongside other important information such as the U-value of the product and effective air leakage.
