Energy Rated Windows
Skyblue’s range of Energy Rated Windows has been designed to minimise heat loss, absorb heat from the sun and eliminate air leakage… the result is savings on home heating bills and reduced energy waste.
Skyblue Energy Rated Windows are manufactured using the highest-spec Low Iron and Soft Coat glass, gas fill and Warm Edge Spacer. All windows are tested and certified by the British Standards Institute and approved by the Energy Saving Trust scheme.
The energy efficiency of windows are measured by Window Energy Ratings. WER’s take into account the performance of both frame and glass known as a whole window ratings, and are determined by three main factors:
Energy Rated Windows – the benefits for home owners:
- Save money on your home heating bills… your heating bills could be reduced by up to 20% per year
- The Environment… energy efficient windows will help ensure you do “your bit” for the environment and could reduce your CO emissions by up to two tonnes.
- Current building regulations… energy efficient windows adhere to currently building regulations for new build properties and houses for sale or rent. If you are selling your home, energy rated windows could help add to the overall value of the property.

Vertical Sliding Sash Windows
The vertical sliding sash window range combines the elegance of traditional sash windows with the benefits of PVCu.
Suitable for replacing existing timber sliders in period buildings and to new builds seeking to capture a traditional feel. The traditional style can be enhanced with the addition of Georgian or astrical bars and decorative horns.
Available in white, white grain, oak, cream and black.
Manufactured from PVCu, Camden’s vertical sliding sash windows are strong, will not rot or require repainting; this ensures that they retain their colour and shape throughout the years with the minimum of maintenance.
The Camden Sash window is ideal for replacing existing timber sliders in period buildings, whilst at the same time providing character and traditional elegance in all new build houses.
The top and bottom sash on the window both feature the vertical sliding sash facility for both convenience and safety.
Both sashes tilt inwards into the room to provide extra ventilation options and this also allows for easy maintenance.
To ensure safety within the family home, there is the option of a child restrictor hinge for both tilting sashes, keeping your family safe and secure.
The vertical sliding sash window is internally glazed ensuring it is one of Camden’s most secure frames. For extra security customers may also choose an additional high security lock.
The gaskets within the vertical sliding sashes sits flush within the frame which means that only a fraction of the gasket is visible. The result is that the appearance of the window is not distorted by thick, bulky lines.
Vertical sliding sash windows are fitted with double glazed units as standard.
