Sash windows are the epitome of traditional architecture. They create the classic old-world style and are a clear display of class, elegance, culture and sophistication. 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.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. The right ones can reduce draughts and lower energy bills if they are purchased and installed correctly.
One of these features is the additional weight added to the sash of a window which prevents them from being easily lifted. Having the window extra heavy also makes it more difficult for a burglar to break in, since a stronger force is required to lift the window 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 clean, and their design provides them with minimal upkeep. It takes a certain skill to open them. 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.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!
The windows of a home can have more of an impact on its overall value than anything else. If you’re renovating an older building or constructing a new one, sash windows will make the structure more desirable to potential buyers. Have a question?

We install sash windows in many different styles and materials throughout the whole of the UK. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. We have listed our most popular sash windows below:
There are many styles of sash windows we offer, including the box sash. A traditional style window, it includes horizontal wooden or metal rails that open for ventilation. This style originated in England and became popular due to its lightweight and efficiency in transferring heat. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth to the window frame.
The windows are made from high-quality materials and decorated with premium materials to fit any home style. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good 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.
Because the balance is spring-loaded, there is no handle to pull, and once the window is opened, it will stay open until enough pressure builds up to push it closed, similar to an automatic garage door. With their advanced double-glazing glass design, they’re also more energy-efficient. We use the traditional method of elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ to provide tension for the windowpane to move with ease but still hold firm in all conditions. These features combined with our fully weatherproof, lightweight and paintable frames, have made them the number choice for period and time-sensitive projects.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. These components integrate discreetly into period properties and bring a sense of originality to them.

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. Window sashes made in a Victorian style are still among the most common types in use today.
The gap beneath the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge is called the reveal, and it lets cold air into the house. You can further enhance the classic look by adding large, ornate crowns. There are many beautiful colours available for our Victorian timber sash windows, including a lovely green and blue stained finish to match any exterior. Alternatively, they can be built with a single, double, or triple glazing arrangement. Feature this charming window style in your period property today.

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. 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. A latex finish helps protect the frames against UV rays and weathering, as well as animals and pollutants that can cause corrosion.
