Letter to the Editor - The year of the flush sash, Martin Dickie Residence Collection

Jayne Sullivan, Operations Directo

Dear Ian

Is this the year of the flush sash? Most systems companies have launched one, or added one or two profiles to create a flush sash look. In the main, they're the same window with a new face rather than a new flush system, so there are compromises.

Some imply that planners will permit their windows in conservation areas. But it's not fair to lead installers on.

Martin Dickie,
Managing Director, Residence Collection
