What Are Window Boards? 

A window board is a versatile architectural element that provides both functional and aesthetic benefits to windows. 

These horizontal surfaces, often referred to as window sills, are installed at the bottom of windows, extending inward and creating a ledge. They often bestow a refined and polished appearance to the window area, leaving no trace of unfinished edges and creating a "complete" look.

The window board serves a vital role in the structural completion of the window aperture, seamlessly bridging the gap between the window and the front internal wall. 

Beyond their conventional function of concealing the space between the front wall and the window, window boards possess an added capability to redirect any condensation that may form on the glazing. This thoughtful design feature ensures not only a visually seamless integration but also a practical solution for moisture management, elevating the overall performance of the window installation.

With a wide range of materials, designs, and length options available, internal window boards can be tailored to suit your style and preferences. 

Durability & Maintenance

Window boards are built to last, offering long-term durability and minimal maintenance requirements. 

Depending on the chosen material, be it oak window boards or MDF window boards, they can withstand the test of time, resist moisture damage, and maintain their structural integrity. 

Regular cleaning with mild detergent and water is usually sufficient to keep them looking fresh and well-maintained.

What Is The Relation Between Window Boards & Glazing?
