Sash windows are the classic old-world style of windows with a very traditional feel and are often viewed as the symbol of traditional architecture. Sash windows are effective and practical, allowing natural light to filter into the room while keeping out the cold. Because they don’t move around like other types of windows, they make a great choice for an architect or engineer who wants classic aesthetics and high levels of efficiency.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. It is possible to save on energy bills and reduce draughts by installing them correctly.
One of these features is the additional weight added to the sash of a window which prevents them from being easily lifted. A burglar also has a hard time forcing a window up if it is heavier due to the additional force required. 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 easy to maintain, thanks to their design and high-quality materials that retain their integrity for many years. It’s all in how they open. 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.
Our windows are made with a patented technology that eliminates the need for traditional springs. This makes them a lot more durable than other windows, which means that you’ll never have to worry about any springs snapping!
Did you know that the condition of your windows can have a greater impact on the value of your home? 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. Would you like some help?

We specialise in installing several types of sash windows. There are a variety of ways to arrange the number and location of panes in each type of window. Here are our top-selling sash windows:
As one of many styles of sash windows we install, box sash windows are among the most popular. 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. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Charlton creates top-quality, dual-purpose box sash windows that are characterized by a contemporary design and top-quality craftsmanship. Tapered-rail devices at the window frame add depth by adding additional taper to the rails.
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. Triple glazing and warm edge sprigging are also included in box sash windows, which offer attractive features your home can benefit from inside the home or outside.
Using a spring balanced sash means modifying a window to use it with a counterweight. Sash windows with Spring balance can be opened wider than traditional sash windows, up to 90 degrees.
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. With elongated slots and wooden springs, we provide tension to allow the windowpane to move freely while still holding firm in all situations. These features combined with our fully weatherproof, lightweight and paintable frames, have made them the number choice for period and time-sensitive projects.
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. When installed, they are a discrete inclusion that adds an original look to period properties.
Detailing is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Charlton and the Georgian sash fitted with our two sills and arches are a real statement of quality and style. We make sure the parts we use are of the highest quality to ensure quality work so you can get an authentic design you are sure to enjoy.
Double-hung sash windows can be described as Victorian sash windows. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. Traditional Victorian sash windows remain one of the most common types of windows to this day.
Typically there will be a large gap between the bottom edge of the sash and the frame – this is called the reveal, and it naturally creates space that would allow cold air to enter through the frame. In addition to the classic look, ornate crowns and returns can be added at the top and bottom. There are many beautiful colours available for our Victorian timber sash windows, including a lovely green and blue stained finish to match any exterior. They are also available in single, double, or triple glazing configurations. Feature this charming window style in your period property today.

The frame material for sash windows can be varied according to the customer’s preferences.
A uPVC frame is available for our Sash Windows; these windows provide well-insulated and energy-efficient solutions.
There are many different types of frame materials out there, but aluminium is the most versatile. In a window, it provides outstanding thermal properties despite its lightweight, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance.
Several layers of high-density polyethene (HDPE) with two layers of aluminium create a frame so strong and durable that, when replaced, it will last hundreds of years. 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.
Wood windows are the best option. Natural fibres such as wood are biodegradable and renewable.
