iv just had a well known welsh co do some d/g windows and they informed me that most old windows get CUT out and get damaged on most jobs as its quicker to do it that way, so all the ones you would expect to be available quite often are are now rubbish wot a waste.

the old hanging plastic strip cutains are used to keep lots of unwanted s out of the allotment greenhouses ,you used to see them everywhere years ago ,the (in thing ) they were, not so now but they do work quite well for the greenhouse door they also keep the birds out,
