Inspired by classic design, they come in a range of styles and finishes, complementing architecture from new builds to period buildings. In addition to their aesthetic value, these windows are excellent from an energy efficiency standpoint, as they allow natural light to filter behind them while mitigating draughts through the frame, resulting in popular choices for modern-day buildings seeking a classic aesthetic.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. When specified and installed correctly, they can be a cost-effective way to regulate temperature and minimize the effects of draughts.
The added weight of the sashes (operating shutters) can prevent someone from lifting the window open. The extra weight also helps slow down entry by a burglar due to the force needed to push the window up if there is resistance. Sash windows are known to be more secure than other types of windows because a burglar must break through the different panes of glass if they want to gain access.
Sash windows are easy to maintain, thanks to their design and high-quality materials that retain their integrity for many years. There is a secret to unlocking them. Their moveable parts are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weather-stripping in between them to keep out the elements.
It also won’t need any spring replacement once it snaps, unlike other traditional windows!
Windows are a vital investment, one of the most visible parts of a home, and a key factor in its overall value. Sash windows do create value in buildings, and because they stay open without the use of any additional equipment, they can ultimately help you save on energy costs. Need assistance?

Box sash windows make a beautiful addition to any home, offering functionality and beauty in harmony. These windows have two vertical wood or metal components; the upper and lower sashes open to allow for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. Our box sash windows are perfect for modern homes, with an exterior design to suit a range of different buildings. In this case, the window frame is given additional depth by using a unique tapered-rail device.
The windows are made from high-quality materials and decorated with premium materials to fit any home style. Modern box sash windows feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, making them both energy efficient and aesthetically appealing.
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.
A spring balance eliminates the need for a handle; once the window is opened, it stays open until enough pressure has been built up to close it, similar to an automatic garage door. With their advanced double-glazing glass design, they’re also more energy-efficient. A traditional method of using elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ provides sufficient tension for the window to move freely without any hindrance, while still holding in place under all conditions. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. Installed in period properties, they are a discrete inclusion that adds to their charm.
