Finally, you have a lot of choice if you want to purchase plastic frames. The frames are sold in different shapes and sizes, but also in many different colors. Due to the wide range of different types of windows, you can always find a window that meets all your requirements and also fits your home perfectly.

The different types of plastic frames

Do you want to buy plastic frames? Then you first have to determine what kind of cheap plastic frames you want to purchase. You can choose from frames for a fixed window, frames for a turn/tilt window and frames for a bottom-hung window. And do you have a sliding door or sliding window? Then you have to purchase special frames for this.

Plastic frames for a fixed window

A fixed window is a window that cannot be opened. If necessary, a ventilation grille can be placed in the window, so that fresh air can still come in. A plastic frame for a fixed window consists of a frame, a window and a pane.

Plastic frames for turn/tilt windows

You can open a turn/tilt window not only horizontally, but also vertically. This window type is often used in combination with a fixed window. A plastic frame for a turn/tilt window is specially made for this window type.

Plastic frames for bottom windows

A bottom-hung window is a window that can be opened vertically. The window actually ‘falls’ open. You often see this window in bathrooms and toilets, where the window is placed high to prevent passers-by from looking into the room in question. A frame for a bottom-hung window has been specially developed for this window type.

Other types of plastic frames

In addition to fixed windows, tilt/turn windows and bottom-hung windows, there are various other window types. Think of sliding windows, hinged windows and casement windows. There are frames for all types of windows. Whatever type of windows your house has: you can always purchase a plastic frame that is specially made for this window type.

Plastic frames for doors

Of course there are not only frames for windows, but also for doors. Think of front doors, but also back doors, garden doors, sliding doors and so on. Just like the windows, there are also frames for all types of doors.

Additional options when buying plastic frames

When purchasing plastic frames, you can choose to equip these frames with one or more additional options. This includes roller shutters, but also screens and ventilation grilles. In addition, you can also choose to secure your plastic frames extra well, with an extra lock. All windows we sell comply with the Safe Living quality mark of the police. Still, you can choose to invest in extra security by having windows fitted with locks.

We always recommend ordering roller shutters, screens and ventilation grilles together with your frames. This prevents you from having to have professionals on the sidewalk twice: the first time to place the window frames, then to place the roller shutters, screens and/or ventilation grilles.

In addition, it is often cheaper if you order your frames, shutters, screens and/or ventilation grilles at the same time.
