Autumn Home Improvements in Bracknell, Berkshire are the Vertical Sliding Timber Window specialists
Craftsmanship combined with modern technology
'Choices' vertical sliding spiral balanced timber windows utilise modern technology alongside craftsmanship to create the spiral balanced windows that have pre-tensioned springs either side of the sash, which allows the sliding sash window to slide open and close effortlessly.
Using such techniques means that 'Choices' spiral balance windows from Autumn Home Improvements can be used in smaller areas.
Stylish spiral balance windows bring elegance to any home
'Choices' range of vertical sliding Spiral Balance windows have been magnificently engineered and are available either with a lead weight pulley system installed or alternatively, with our easy spiral slide technique.
