Single glazed windows simply don’t cut it when it comes to energy efficiency as they readily allow heat to escape from the home. Double glazing does a far better job of keeping heat indoors and subsequently keeps the cost of heating bills down. The inclusion of two glazed panes within one window design also makes it more difficult for thieves to force their way into your private space. No home should be without it.

It’s important that locks, handles and hinges – even frames and glazing – do their job and protect you and your family. All Swish windows and doors conform to PAS 24: 2012 which covers enhanced security performance requirements for doors and windows in the UK. Look out for features like multi-point locking and egress hinges which allow a window to open to 90° for emergency escape.

All of our window and door profiles are covered by a ten year guarantee against manufacturing defects. Your installer will offer a guarantee on the installation. Make sure that this guarantee is “insurance-backed” and offered by a DTI approved insurer. This means that if the installer goes out of business – for any reason – you are still covered.
Most guarantees will cover defects in materials and workmanship, but always check the small print. If there is anything you’re not happy with, check it out before you sign on any dotted lines.
