We are having a new window fitted into a virgin wall. The links are for the windows and frames. It would be great if someone could tell me do these look good quality?

Many Thanks

They are all much of a muchness tbh. They look decent enough quality. They all have to conform to certain standards now anyway.
The fitting is very important. Must be well fitted and well sealed with foam and with silicone on the outside to ensure a draught free fit.

:withstupid: If they're not fitted well then the best windholes in the world are just that windholes.

While I agree totally with both the above comments, I would pick up on your statement "We are having a new window fitted into a virgin wall"
By this I assume that your Window Installer is to form the opening, provide & fit a lintol over, close the Reveals + thermablok (or equivalent) with the appropriate DPC trays at cill and over the lintol.
I have mentioned the above as I see these points equally as important as the Quality of the windows.

Cheers.
