Sash windows are a beautiful architectural creation that is often seen as the mark of a traditional style. 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. They can reduce the impact of draughts and help save on energy bills if properly installed.
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 are strong and secure, so they have remained popular today. To break them, the burglar would have to shatter thick glass panels.
Sash windows are easy to maintain, thanks to their design and high-quality materials that retain their integrity for many years. The secret is in the way they open. Moveable parts are enclosed between two solid hardwood sides, often covered with an additional layer of felt or weather-stripping to prevent the elements from getting into them.
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!

We specialise in installing several types of sash windows. Each window type has many variations in the number and location of its panes. Here are our most popular sash windows:
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. They feature two vertical sashes – upper and lower – that are made from wood or metal and can be opened for ventilation. This style originated in England and became popular due to its lightweight and efficiency in transferring heat. 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 provide unprecedented levels of authenticity, craftsmanship, quality, and personalization. The triple glazed and warm edge sprigging of box sash windows offer an attractive look from either inside or outside your home.
Spring balanced sashes are windows that have been modified to allow them to use a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider up to 90 degrees.
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. Additionally, the double-glazed glass design makes them 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. These additions create an original look in period properties when installed discreetly.
At Trade Timber Windows and Doors Islington, our Georgian sash is fitted with two sills and arches to create a real statement of quality and style To ensure quality workmanship, we utilize only top-grade authentic parts, so you can ensure you’re getting a period piece that’s of the highest quality.
A Victorian sash window is a classic double-hung sash window. By sliding the bottom half up or down, and keeping the top half stationary, the frame can be opened or closed. Window sashes made in a Victorian style are still among the most common types in use today.
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. The classic look can be enhanced further by adding ornate crowns or returns to the top and bottom. You can choose from a range of gorgeous colours for our stunning Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green staining to complement any exterior. Alternatively, they can be built with a single, double, or triple glazing arrangement. Finish your period property with this delightful window style today.

You can choose from a variety of frame materials for your sash windows.
Our Sash Windows are available in uPVC frames which are designed to offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
The versatility of aluminium makes it one of the most widely used frame materials. Applied to windows, it provides excellent thermal properties because it is lightweight and rust-resistant at the same time.
Using high-density polyethene (HDPE) to strengthen the frame, we sandwich it between two metal pieces to create exceptionally strong and durable sashes. A latex finish helps protect the frames against UV rays and weathering, as well as animals and pollutants that can cause corrosion.
Whenever it comes to windows, wood is the ideal material. The natural fibres of wood are biodegradable and renewable resources. Not only does the wood frame meet every standard criterion set by our customers, but it also performs well and is reliable. Sash wood frames at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Islington offer a warm, cosy feel and come in both modern and traditional styles.
