Sash windows are a beautiful architectural creation that is often seen as the mark of a traditional style. In addition to their beautiful aesthetic qualities, they are very effective in terms of energy efficiency, as they allow natural light to filter behind them while minimizing draughts through the frame, making them an ideal choice for modern buildings that seek a classic aesthetic.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. If they are bought and installed correctly, they can help save on energy bills and reduce the effects of draughts easily.
The sashes (operating shutters) have a great impact on the window’s strength and its weight. 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 have long been recognised as robust and secure, with up to separate panels usually filled with broken glass to make a burglar’s task even more difficult.
Sash windows are also very cost-efficient, which is ideal for anyone looking to simply replace their old windows or add more to an existing home. 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.
And the best part about our windows is that they are stronger and more reliable than even the highest quality traditional windows! Our reinforced springs prevent sagging and bending, even in the worst conditions, so you won’t have to worry about replacing any parts.
In terms of real estate, a home’s windows are considered to be one of its most valuable assets. Sash windows are a cost-effective way to improve the value and thermal efficiency of residential or commercial properties. Looking for assistance?

We specialise in installing several types of sash windows. Each window type has many variations in the number and location of its panes. Some of the most popular sash windows we offer are:
Sash windows are available in many styles, including box sash windows. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
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. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good from inside or outside your home.
Window components that have been modified to work with a counterweight are known as spring balanced sashes. Spring balanced sash windows are capable of opening much wider than other traditional windows, up to 90 degrees.
The balance of the window is spring-loaded, so there is no handle to pull, and once it is opened, it will remain open until enough pressure builds up to close it, similar to an automatic garage door. The energy-saving properties of their innovative double-glazed glass design make them even more cost-effective. With elongated slots and wooden springs, we provide tension to allow the windowpane to move freely while still holding firm in all situations. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
We offer Georgian sash windows, which are unique types of windows that fit those with a need for a period style window that also provides ventilation. Their distinctive appearance adds originality to the properties of the era in which they are installed.
A real statement of quality and style, the Georgian sash with its two sills and arches are an important detail for us here at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Croydon. We use top quality, genuine parts to ensure excellent quality so you can be sure you’ll get an awesome period design.
Essentially a classic double-hung sash window, a Victorian sash window boasts a classic double-hung design. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. One of the most popular window styles in today’s market is the Victorian sash.

If desired, the classic look can be further enhanced by the addition of ornate crowns and returns.

Alternatively, they can be built with a single, double, or triple glazing arrangement. Bring a unique touch to your period home with this delightful window style.

There are different frames available for our sash windows, so you can choose the one that is best for you.
With our uPVC Sash Windows, you will experience energy efficiency and optimal weather protection.
There are many frame materials available in the marketplace and aluminium is one of them. When used in a window, this product provides excellent thermal performance as it’s lightweight, rust-resistant, and corrosion-resistant.
Composite sashes are made from a high-density polyethene (HDPE) core sandwiched between two sheets of aluminium, creating a sash that is both strong and durable. The frames are then painted with an acrylic latex finish to protect them from UV rays, weathering, bird and animal damage as well as chemicals that can lead to corrosion.
