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.
Installed correctly and maintained properly, sash windows are the ideal choice for any homeowner who wants to save energy. 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. 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 strong and secure, so they have remained popular today. To break them, the burglar would have to shatter thick glass panels.
Sash Windows are easy to clean, and their design provides them with minimal upkeep. 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 specialise in installing several types of sash windows. Each window type has many variations in the number and location of its panes. We have listed our most popular sash windows below:
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. The heat-transfer efficiency and lightweight nature of this style contributed to its popularity in England. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Southwark’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. It is accomplished by installing a special tapered-rail device that gives the frame extra depth.
The windows are made from high-quality materials and decorated with premium materials to fit any home style. The triple glazed and warm edge sprigging of box sash windows offer an attractive look from either inside or outside your home.
Using a spring balanced sash means modifying a window to use it with a counterweight. Up to 90 degrees of opening can be achieved with a Spring Balanced sash window, much more than other traditional windows.
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. To move the windowpane with ease in all conditions, we use traditional elongated slots and wooden springs to provide the tension needed. 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 are a unique type of window that provides additional ventilation and provide a period style sash window. Installed in period properties, they are a discrete inclusion that adds to their charm.

The frame material for sash windows can be varied according to the customer’s preferences.
Sash Windows come in uPVC frames that offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
There are many frame materials available in the marketplace and aluminium is one of them. In a window, it provides outstanding thermal properties despite its lightweight, rust resistance, and corrosion resistance.
Several layers of high-density polyethene (HDPE) with two layers of aluminium create a frame so strong and durable that, when replaced, it will last hundreds of years. 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.
The best window material is wood. Renewable and biodegradable, wood is a renewable resource. Not only does the wood frame meet every standard criterion set by our customers, but it also performs well and is reliable. Taking inspiration from traditional and modern styles, Trade Timber Windows and Doors Southwark’s sash wood frames offer warm, cosy vibes.
