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.
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.
Our windows are custom-made with highly durable sashes that make it difficult for unauthorised individuals to lift them. It also makes entry more difficult for burglars as a force is needed to push the window up in the case of 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.
You can keep your sash windows in good working order with little attention needed thanks to their design, plus their durable material helps them last for many years. It’s all in how they open. They are sandwiched between two powerful hardwood sides, which are often weather-stripped or covered with felt and other materials to prevent leaks.
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 install sash windows in many different styles and materials throughout the whole of the UK. Each window type has many variations in the number and location of its panes. Some of the most popular sash windows we offer are:
Box sash windows make a beautiful addition to any home, offering functionality and beauty in harmony. They feature two vertical sashes – upper and lower – that are made from wood or metal and can be opened for ventilation. Developed in England, this style was popularized for its lightweight and excellent heat transmission. Our box sash windows are perfect for modern homes, with an exterior design to suit a range of different buildings. It is accomplished by installing a special tapered-rail device that gives the frame extra depth.
These windows are crafted from the highest quality materials, providing a classic look and modern soundproofing properties. Modern box sash windows feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, making them both energy efficient and aesthetically appealing.
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.
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. They’re also more energy-efficient thanks to their innovative double glazed glass design. 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.
Our Georgian sash windows are a unique type of window that is perfect for those who require period style sash windows that provide additional ventilation. These components integrate discreetly into period properties and bring a sense of originality to them.
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 Merton. We use top class authentic parts to ensure quality workmanship so you can be certain of getting a period design that will be great.
Classic double-hung windows are Victorian sash windows. To open or close, the bottom half of the frame slides up and down, but the top half remains stationary. Window sashes made in a Victorian style are still among the most common types in use today.
A sash has a natural space between the bottom edge and the frame called the reveal, which naturally encourages 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. Our stunning Victorian timber sash windows are available in a wide range of colours, including beautiful blue and green stained finishes to compliment any exterior. Alternatively, they can be made with single, double, or triple glazing. This delightful window style is a perfect choice for anyone who possesses a period home.

Various frame materials are available for our sash windows to meet your specific needs.
With our uPVC Sash Windows, you will experience energy efficiency and optimal weather protection.
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. 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.
