Universal Arches manufacture made-to-measure shaped window frames with an arched or swept head, in one-off designs, to suit individual projects. The Arches are welded and hand polished during manufacture, to ensure there are no visible joints, resulting in a window with a perfect finish. Whether your home is modern or traditional, we can offer a shaped window to match your precise requirements. Using in-house CAD drawings for accuracy, the radius of the swept or arched head will be calculated and the bending machine configured accordingly.
Modern shaped windows offer the same level of thermal efficiency as a square or rectangular window, to keep your home warm, so there is no need to compromise when it comes to the perfect design for your home.
Arched window frames or windows with a swept head have been popular since Roman Times. A semi-circular window arch was often constructed to spread the weight of the building without the need for a supporting lintel. More recently, arched windows are often specified to emphasise the height of an opening, giving the building a feeling of grandeur and elegance.
uPVC shaped windows offer many benefits. They are easy to maintain, waterproof, durable, secure and stylish. At Universal Arches, we manufacture shaped window frames in a wide range of colours, including White, Cream, Light Grey, Anthracite Grey, Light Oak, Chartwell Green and Black. We can also offer one colour inside your home, with a different colour outside. Each of the uPVC colours are available in a smooth finish or with an authentic woodgrain finish which closely replicates timber, but without the need for the regular maintenance of a wooden window.
We can supply bespoke shaped double glazed units, or we can supply glass sizes for you to source your own glazing.
Dimensions: Arched Head minimum radius is 190mm with no maximum limitations.
