The Axminster Window System is a custom designed set of tooling manufactured exclusively for Axminster by OMAS Spa. of Italy. It is aimed specifically at the small/mid range joinery shop, with an adequate spindle moulder and with an X-feed/tenoning capability, to enable window production to be fast, economical and profitable. A survey of the current styles offered by the mass joinery producers and discussion with various joiners concerning their customers’ requirements, led us to design a system that can produce flush or stormproof windows, with a clean, modern looking bevelled frame and either bevel or ovolo patterned sashes/casements. Traditional hinges, fasteners and stays, multi-point espagnolette locking, friction stays, etc., can all be catered for within the flexibility of the system. Rainhoods and extended ledges are added as extensions to the frame, or can be ignored when the requirement is for a replacement window to fit into an existing reveal already complete with cill and rain canopy.
