Inspired by classic design, they come in a range of styles and finishes, complementing architecture from new builds to period buildings. They are also very effective from an energy efficiency point of view, as they allow natural light to filter behind them whilst mitigating draughts through the frame, often making them popular choices for modern-day buildings looking for a classic aesthetic.
For over a century, sash windows have been a popular choice for homeowners because of their classic looks and excellent energy-saving properties. They can reduce the impact of draughts and help save on energy bills if properly installed.
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 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 low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. It’s all in how they open. 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.
And the best part about our windows is that they are stronger and more reliable than even the highest quality traditional windows! Our reinforced springs prevent sagging and bending, even in the worst conditions, so you won’t have to worry about replacing any parts.
Windows are a vital investment, one of the most visible parts of a home, and a key factor in its overall value.

We install several types of sash windows. There are a variety of ways to arrange the number and location of panes in each type of window. Here are our most popular sash windows:
As one of many styles of sash windows we install, box sash windows are among the most popular. 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 windows are perfect for modern homes, with an exterior design to suit a range of different buildings. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth to the window frame.
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.
Window components that have been modified to work with a counterweight are known as spring balanced sashes. Up to 90 degrees of opening can be achieved with a Spring Balanced sash window, much more than other traditional windows.
As a result of the spring-loaded balance, there is no handle to pull, and once the window has been opened, it will remain open until enough pressure builds to close it, the same way an automatic garage door does. Additionally, the double-glazed glass design makes them more energy-efficient. With elongated slots and wooden springs, we provide tension to allow the windowpane to move freely while still holding firm in all situations. 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.
Georgian sash windows provide additional ventilation and are perfect for homes that require period style sash windows. These additions create an original look in period properties when installed discreetly.

Various frame materials are available for our sash windows to meet your specific needs.
uPVC frames provide excellent energy efficiency and resistance to the elements in our Sash Windows.
The versatility of aluminium makes it one of the most widely used frame materials. In a window, it provides outstanding thermal properties despite its lightweight, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance.
Our composite sashes are made of a high-density polyethene (HDPE) core sandwiched between two pieces of aluminium creating an extremely strong and durable frame.
