Inspired by classic design, they come in a range of styles and finishes, complementing architecture from new builds to period 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.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. 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. Due to the heavier weight, breaking in is also substantially more difficult if there is resistance to pushing the window up. Sash windows are particularly secure and consist of three layers of glass, which makes it very difficult for a burglar to break into the property.
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.
It also won’t need any spring replacement once it snaps, unlike other traditional windows!

We install sash windows in many different styles and materials throughout the whole of the UK. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. Here are our most popular sash windows:
Sash windows are available in many styles, including box sash windows. They feature two vertical sashes – upper and lower – that are made from wood or metal and can be opened for ventilation. This style originated in England and became popular due to its lightweight and efficiency in transferring heat. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Richmond-Upon-Thames’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. 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. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good from inside or outside your home.
Spring balanced sashes are windows that have been modified to allow them to use a counterweight. Spring balanced sash windows are capable of opening much wider than other traditional windows, up to 90 degrees.
Because the balance is spring-loaded, there is no handle to pull, and once the window is opened, it will stay open until enough pressure builds up to push it closed, similar to an automatic garage door. 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. Combined with lightweight, weatherproof, and paintable frames, our products have become the top choice for time-critical projects.
We offer Georgian sash windows, which are unique types of windows that fit those with a need for a period style window that also provides ventilation. Installed in period properties, they are a discrete inclusion that adds to their charm.
As part of our commitment to quality and style, we matched the Georgian sash with our two sills and arches. To ensure quality workmanship, we utilize only top-grade authentic parts, so you can ensure you’re getting a period piece that’s of the highest quality.
Double-hung sash windows can be described as Victorian sash windows. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays stationary. The Victorian sash is very traditional, and still make up one of the most common styles of windows today.
There is typically a large gap below the sash where the frame meets the bottom edge – this is called the reveal, and it allows cold air to enter through this space. In addition to the classic look, ornate crowns and returns can be added at the top and bottom. You can choose from a wide range of colours for our stunning, Victorian timber sash windows, including blue and green stains that go well with any modern exterior design. 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.
Although Edwardian sash windows have long been popular in historic houses, they are also becoming more popular in contemporary homes.

Our Sash Windows are available in uPVC frames which are designed to offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
There are many frame materials available in the marketplace and aluminium is one of them. Applied to windows, it provides excellent thermal properties because it is lightweight and rust-resistant at the same time.
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. To protect the frames against damage from the sun, weathering, animals, and chemicals, a latex acrylic finish is applied.
