With demand for affordable heritage style windows continuing to increase, fabricators and installers should consider PVC-U solutions says a leading polymer specialist.

In response to the enduring popularity of traditional timber-framed windows, Rehau has unveiled its latest offering to the Rio flush fit family, the Deep Bottom Rail. Combining the period-style visuals of timber sash windows with the desirable convenience and efficiency benefits of modern PVC-U, its additional sash profile has been designed to complement the current Rio range and provide more style options.

The deep bottom rail can be mechanically jointed on the bottom of the sash with a screwported aluminium component to create an authentic look. As a result, homeowners are given the choice of the flush sash throughout or an option for the deep bottom rail at the bottom of the sash.


 “Our latest innovation, the Deep Bottom Rail is testament to Rehau’s mantra of windows being designed for modern life. With its simple, yet effective design, it’s a promising addition to the already versatile Rio flush fit family.”
