Sash windows are a beautiful architectural creation that is often seen as the mark of a traditional style. In addition to their aesthetic value, these windows are excellent from an energy efficiency standpoint, as they allow natural light to filter behind them while mitigating draughts through the frame, resulting in popular choices for modern-day buildings seeking a classic aesthetic.
Since they offer classic looks and excellent energy savings, sash windows have long been a popular choice among homeowners. The right ones can reduce draughts and lower energy bills if they are purchased and installed correctly.
The sashes (movable shutters) have an added weight to prevent someone from accidentally lifting the window open. 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 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 clean, and their design provides them with minimal upkeep. There is a secret to unlocking 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.
It also won’t need any spring replacement once it snaps, unlike other traditional windows!

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. We have listed our most popular sash windows below:
There are many styles of sash windows we offer, including the box sash. 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. Our box sash windows are perfect for modern homes, with an exterior design to suit a range of different buildings. In this case, the window frame is given additional depth by using a unique tapered-rail device.
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.
Using a spring balanced sash means modifying a window to use it with a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider 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. The energy-saving properties of their innovative double-glazed glass design make them even more cost-effective. 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. 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.

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. It’s lightweight, rust-resistant and, when used in a window, provides outstanding thermal properties.
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.
Wood makes a great window material. Natural fibres such as wood are biodegradable and renewable. Not only does the wood frame meet every standard criterion set by our customers, but it also performs well and is reliable.
