PVC-U Windows

Elegant and Stylist

PVC-U casement windows are the most popular style in the UK.  They are characterised by outward opening vents which are combined with fixed panels (lights).  Mates Rates can manufacture almost any size and style!

The profiles are slim, but strong and insulating.  When combined with high quality glazing, they create a thermally efficient window which is robust and easy to maintain.


Because tastes and properties differ, Mates Rates casements are available in either a chamfered or ovolo shape.  There is also an extensive range of colours, glazing and harware options available.
