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.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. 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 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. The secret is in the way they open. Most of their moving parts are encased between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, and a layer of felt or weather-stripping encloses them from the elements.
And here’s the best part: unlike other traditional windows, you won’t have to worry about replacing any springs once they snap!
Windows are one of the most underrated and overlooked features of a home and in actuality, have more of an impact on its overall value than anything else. Sash windows are a cost-effective way to improve the value and thermal efficiency of residential or commercial properties. Need assistance?

We offer a variety of sash window types and styles. Each type of window can have many variations in how many panes are in it and where they are located. Some of the most popular sash windows we offer are:
As one of many styles of sash windows we install, box sash windows are among the most popular. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. Developed in England, this style was popularized for its lightweight and excellent heat transmission. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Kensington-Chelsea creates top-quality, dual-purpose box sash windows that are characterized by a contemporary design and top-quality craftsmanship. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
These windows are crafted from the highest quality materials, providing a classic look and modern soundproofing properties. In addition to triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, box sash windows offer attractive features that are visually pleasing whether viewed from inside or outside your home.
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.
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. Due to their innovative double-glazing design, these windows are also more energy-efficient. The traditional method for providing tension for the windowpane to move with ease while holding firm is the use of elongated slots and wooden springs. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.

There are different frames available for our sash windows, so you can choose the one that is best for you.
uPVC frames provide excellent energy efficiency and resistance to the elements in our Sash Windows.
Aluminium is one of the most versatile frame materials out there. In a window, it provides outstanding thermal properties despite its lightweight, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance.
We manufacture composite sashes from a sandwich of polyethene (HDPE) and aluminium, which makes for a strong and durable frame. In addition to protection from UV rays, weathering, animals, and chemicals that might cause corrosion on the frames, a latex acrylic finish is applied over them to ensure their longevity.
