Timber-look sliding sash windows in Conservation Area in Bristol


Ultimate Rose replacement upvc sliding sash windows in Conservation Area.

Mr Hall wanted to replace the old single glazed, rotten, timber sliding sash windows in his top-floor property in the Sneyd Park Conservation Area in Bristol. The local Planning Authority had initially insisted on timber replacement windows but Mr Hall was convinced that the alternatives offered by Panoramic were not only more efficient and maintenance-free, but also would give the property a better overall aspect after fitting.

Panoramic helped Mr Hall to challenge the Planning Authority’s decision by providing drawings, samples and advice. Having shown creditable persistence and fortitude, Mr Hall won his battle and was given permission to fit Ultimate Rose sliding sash windows.



After receiving planning permission, Panoramic worked with Mr Hall to design a replacement, Ultimate Rose, sliding sash windows. This included arched head windows and shaped head windows where only the lower part of the window was sliding. Our manufacturing partner Roseview was very helpful in providing solutions and drawings, a plan was agreed and an order placed for 16 windows.


Panoramic fitted the sliding sash windows over a period of 2 weeks. The top-floor situation of the property necessitated the erection of scaffolding and the removal of the old timber windows was a task in itself. However, the new Ultimate Rose windows have proved to be every bit as attractive as Mr Hall had hoped and the overall visual effect is stunning.

Mr Hall said ” It took us a long time to get to this point but, seeing the windows installed now, has shown that it was worth all the effort and expense. The Ultimate Rose windows look fantastic. Their operation is smooth and straightforward and we now have a less draughty, warmer and more attractive property. We are thrilled with the results.”

Martin Bird of Panoramic said ” We were very patient with this project. We had to work with Mr Hall over a number of months, to go through the process of Planning with the Council and to get to a positive conclusion. I think the results speak for themselves and should allay any fears that there would be a detrimental effect on the property or the Conservation Area.”
