Timber alternative storm windows
Timber alternative storm windows, by Evolution Windows, showcases a ground-breaking design enabling it to carry exquisite styling and authentic features that are usually only found on a traditional timber window.
Wood effect uPVC storm 2 windows fuses traditional joinery methods with modern technology and performance, ensuring the window is built to last.
The sash has a very low profile with a small round edge, so avoiding the ‘chunky’ appearance of other lipped / storm timber alternative options on the market. It is the only rebated casement on the market with a timber joint.
Storm 2 also offers exceptional energy performance as well as remarkable acoustic and thermal rating, delivering an impressive A+ 13, 1.3W/m² energy rating – as standard.

- Great wood effect window
- Over 200 colour options in addition to our standard wood-effect finishes

Timber alternative windows details
Our products have unrivalled energy efficiency, exceptional weather proofing and low maintenance without compromising on quality and design.
Whether you choose double or triple glazing, our windows are all argon-filled as opposed to the less efficient air-filled units. This applies to glazed units with Georgian bar and to leaded units too. Argon is a noble glass which means it doesn’t react to anything as much as normal air does. This means that heat is not lost as easily through the unit. If you use air-filled glazed units, the heat can escape through the unit much more easily. This of course contributes to the overall energy rating of the window.
Multipoint shoot bolt locking
When you lock the window shut, not only do bolts lock into their keeps next to the handle, but shootbolts at the top and bottom of the window lock into their keeps too meaning your timber alternative window is as secure as any other modern window on the market.
Lockable night vent facility
The window locks in a slightly open position, allowing ventilation into the property without compromising on security by leaving a window wide open inviting potential burglars in.
It’s all in the design. To give the appearance of traditional timber styling and accept a working peg stay, the outer frame is 82mm wide – making it narrow enough to fit into window openings without cutting back plaster lines (subject to existing building/survey).
Optional triple glazing
- Optional energy saving triple glazing to further reduce noise and conserve heat
- Triple glazing will raise the energy rating to A+ 14 with a U value of 1.1 – this means it is 15% more efficient.
- Acoustic glass (can reduce external noise levels you hear in your home by up to 30%)
- Solid looking cill proportions that are similar to traditional timber windows with foiled end caps
