Easy-Sill was invented by Fred Holme and Ernie Hammond in 2013, to satisfy a growing market demand for an attractive light-weight sill that simplified installation and cut out long lead times.
Easy-Sill went into production in 2014, following several years of research, that brought together market specialists with over 60 years’ experience of designing and supplying composites for the construction industry.
Delivery is quick and easy with Easy-Sill, as large quantities of stock are readily available through the UK warehouse, based in Merseyside, which provides a bespoke delivery and cutting service.
This innovative composite technology is perfect for:
- New walls
- External wall insulation
There are three products that make up the Easy-Sill range. This includes:
1. The Sill
The stone-look sill is light-weight and clips on to the wall opening below the window. Options are available for an extended sill. The sill is supplied with matching end caps for a sophisticated finish.
The header replicates the look of a traditional lintel and attaches to the brickwork above the window, offering an attractive finish to any home. Straight or diagonal cut headers are available.
3. String course
A continuous row that runs around the outside of the house and makes the horizontal line of the sills visually more prominent.
The Sill step-by-step guide
Stone sills, although attractive, can come with some drawbacks. They have long lead times and a third of orders are regularly damaged in transit. This can quickly cause building costs to escalate and deadlines to slip.
Easy-Sill, however, is made from Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) so is hard wearing and won’t chip or crack easily. It can be fitted by a single person so isn’t as labour intensive as stone. You also don’t have to apply a mortar and wait for it to cure as you do with stone, so it can be installed straight away and takes minutes.

Easy-Sill is a new, decorative window sill technology that provides an alternative to natural stone and cast stone sills, which, although attractive, can come with some drawbacks.
They often have long lead times and up to a third of orders are regularly damaged in transit or through on-site handling which can quickly cause building costs to escalate and deadlines to slip. They are also very heavy requiring at least two people to fully install.
As Easy-Sill is light-weight, it can be easily fitted by a single person.
Unlike cast stone, it does not require any extra Damp Proof Course, so installation is a simple task for bricklayers and takes minutes.
There are three products that make up the Easy-Sill range. The Sill, header and string course. You can view the full product range on our website.
