The Residence Collection is one of the most prestigious, best-performing ranges of timber effect uPVC windows available to glazing installers today. Two of the most popular options in the Residence Collection are Residence 7 windows and Residence 9 windows.
Generally, the Residence 9 is better suited to period properties and the Residence 7 to more modern architecture. However, to help you decide exactly which is right for a project you’re working on, we’ve looked at their other key differences below.
R7 Residence windows have 7 heat-trapping chambers and R9 windows have 9. However, both take 28mm double or 44m triple glazing and achieve excellent energy ratings of A+.
Residence 9 has a profile that is 100mm wide whilst the Residence 7 system has a 75mm wide profile.
Choose from 20 standard colourways for R7 and 23 for the R9. However, both are available with a dual colour option.
The Residence 9 features a raised, horizontal-running moulding that used to be found on old timber windows. Its purpose is to reinforce the mullion and shed dripping water. This gives them increasing authenticity in terms of the way they look and how they function.
The joints on the Residence 9 are butted together so they resemble old timber windows.
However, the Residence 7 collection is available with a range of joint options
