Sash windows are a beautiful architectural creation that is often seen as the mark of a traditional style. 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. When specified and installed correctly, they can be a cost-effective way to regulate temperature and minimize the effects of draughts.
The sashes (movable shutters) have an added weight to prevent someone from accidentally lifting the window open. 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 have long been recognised as robust and secure, with up to separate panels usually filled with broken glass to make a burglar’s task even more difficult.
Sash windows are easy to maintain, thanks to their design and high-quality materials that retain their integrity for many years. There is a secret to unlocking them. Their moveable parts are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weather-stripping in between them to keep out the elements.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!

We install an extensive range of sash windows. With each type, there are many variations in the number and location of panes per window. Here are our top-selling sash windows:
As one of many styles of sash windows we install, box sash windows are among the most popular. There are two vertical wooden or metal sashes of this window, each of which can be opened for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. 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. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth to the window frame.
These windows provide unprecedented levels of authenticity, craftsmanship, quality, and personalization. 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. Sash windows with Spring balance can be opened wider than traditional sash windows, 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. The energy-saving properties of their innovative double-glazed glass design make them even more cost-effective. 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.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. Installed in period properties, they are a discrete inclusion that adds to their charm.
Detailing is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Barkingside and the Georgian sash fitted with our two sills and arches are a real statement of quality and style. We use top quality, genuine parts to ensure excellent quality so you can be sure you’ll get an awesome period design.
Double-hung sash windows can be described as Victorian sash windows. To open or close, the bottom half of the frame slides up and down, but the top half remains stationary. One of the most popular window styles in today’s market is the Victorian sash.
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. If desired, the classic look can be further enhanced by the addition of ornate crowns and returns. 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. This delightful window style is a perfect choice for anyone who possesses a period home.

The versatility of aluminium makes it one of the most widely used frame materials. When used in a window, this product provides excellent thermal performance as it’s lightweight, rust-resistant, and corrosion-resistant.
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 acrylic finish is applied over the frames to protect them from UV rays, weathering, animal damage, and chemicals that might lead to corrosion.
