Sash windows are the epitome of traditional architecture. They create the classic old-world style and are a clear display of class, elegance, culture and sophistication. These windows ensure you get a seamless visual link between the inside and outside of a building, whilst also promoting openness and freshness in airflow.
Traditionally, sash windows have been popular among homeowners because of their classic looks and high energy efficiency. If they are bought and installed correctly, they can help save on energy bills and reduce the effects of draughts easily.
The sashes (movable shutters) have an added weight to prevent someone from accidentally lifting the window open. A burglar also has a hard time forcing a window up if it is heavier due to the additional force required. Sash windows also have historically been more secure than other types of windows because burglars have to break through layers/panels and they are usually back-filled with glass pieces on impact and therefore difficult to enter.
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. The secret to opening them is hidden in plain sight. They are sandwiched between two powerful hardwood sides, which are often weather-stripped or covered with felt and other materials to prevent leaks.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!
Windows are a vital investment, one of the most visible parts of a home, and a key factor in its overall value. Sash windows are a cost-effective way to improve the value and thermal efficiency of residential or commercial properties. Have a question?

We install an extensive range of sash windows. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. These are some of our most popular window styles:
There are many styles of sash windows we offer, including the box sash. They feature two vertical sashes – upper and lower – that are made from wood or metal and can be opened for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. The box sash windows give homeowners a clean and classic look by enhancing the outlook of any property and are also designed to blend seamlessly with the building structure, making them an aesthetically pleasing choice for homeowners. It is accomplished by installing a special tapered-rail device that gives the frame extra depth.
These windows are constructed with genuine materials and come with a choice of high-quality grills and lattices, making them the perfect choice for your home. The triple glazed and warm edge sprigging of box sash windows offer an attractive look from either inside or outside your home.
Windows with spring balanced sashes use a counterweight in addition to a balance spring. Up to 90 degrees of opening can be achieved with a Spring Balanced sash window, much more than other traditional windows.
Its spring-loaded balance prevents a handle from being used, so, once the window is open, it will stay there until enough pressure is applied to force it shut, like an automatic garage door. Due to their innovative double-glazing design, these windows are also more energy-efficient. We use the traditional method of elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ to provide tension for the windowpane to move with ease but still hold firm in all conditions. The combination of these features, combined with our weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frames have proven to be the most popular choice for period and time-sensitive projects.
Georgian sash windows are a unique type of window that provides additional ventilation and provide a period style sash window. When installed, they are a discrete inclusion that adds an original look to period properties.
Detailed work is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Barnet, and the Georgian sash along with the columns and arches are real statements of quality and style. We use top class authentic parts to ensure quality workmanship so you can be certain of getting a period design that will be great.
A Victorian sash window is a classic double-hung sash window. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. Victorian sash windows are one of the most popular window styles in today’s market.
There is typically a large gap below the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge – this is called the reveal, and it allows cold air to enter through this space. In addition to the classic look, ornate crowns and returns can be added at the top and bottom. You can choose from a wide range of colours for our stunning, Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green stains that go well with any modern exterior design.
