Sash windows are particularly popular at the moment amongst customers choosing to refit period properties, as they seamlessly complement historic features in old buildings. 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.
Since they offer classic looks and excellent energy savings, sash windows have long been a popular choice among homeowners. It is possible to save on energy bills and reduce draughts by installing them correctly.
The sashes (operating shutters) have a great impact on the window’s strength and its weight. 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 also have historically been more secure than other types of windows because burglars have to break through layers/panels and they are usually back-filled with glass pieces on impact and therefore difficult to enter.
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. It takes a certain skill to open them. They are sandwiched between two powerful hardwood sides, which are often weather-stripped or covered with felt and other materials to prevent leaks.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!

We specialise in installing several types of sash windows. Each type of window can have many variations in how many panes are in it and where they are located. We have listed our most popular sash windows below:
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. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Redbridge’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. 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. Modern box sash windows feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, making them both energy efficient and aesthetically appealing.
A spring balanced sash is a window that has been modified to allow it to be used with a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider 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. 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. The combination of these features, combined with our weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frames have proven to be the most popular choice for period and time-sensitive projects.

Essentially a classic double-hung sash window, a Victorian sash window boasts a classic double-hung design. To open or close, the bottom half of the frame slides up and down, but the top half remains 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. You can further enhance the classic look by adding large, ornate crowns.

The frame material for sash windows can be varied according to the customer’s preferences.
uPVC frames provide excellent energy efficiency and resistance to the elements in our Sash Windows.
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.
Using high-density polyethene (HDPE) to strengthen the frame, we sandwich it between two metal pieces to create exceptionally strong and durable sashes. 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 makes a great window material. Several natural fibres make up wood, a renewable resource and biodegradable material. Quality, elegance, and design are three major factors that don’t compromise wood frames in any way. They meet every standard criterion set by our customers… and can certainly meet yours! Trade Timber Windows and Doors Redbridge’s sash wood frames offer a warm, cosy feel and are available in a variety of styles, including modern or traditional.
