Sash windows are the classic old-world style of windows with a very traditional feel and are often viewed as the symbol of traditional architecture. 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.
Traditionally, sash windows have been popular among homeowners because of their classic looks and high energy efficiency. If they are bought and installed correctly, they can help save on energy bills and reduce the effects of draughts easily.
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 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 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.
And here’s the best part: unlike other traditional windows, you won’t have to worry about replacing any springs once they snap!
Did you know that the condition of your windows can have a greater impact on the value of your home? Sash windows do create value in buildings, and because they stay open without the use of any additional equipment, they can ultimately help you save on energy costs. Have a question?

We install 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:
Sash windows are available in many styles, including box sash windows. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer. Our box sash window frames come in a range of wood finishes that perfectly blend with your home’s exterior design. 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. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good from inside or outside your home.
A spring balanced sash is a window that has been modified to allow it to be used with a counterweight. Unlike traditional windows, a Spring balanced sash window can be opened wider up to 90 degrees.
The balance of the window is spring-loaded, so there is no handle to pull, and once it is opened, it will remain open until enough pressure builds up to close it, similar to an automatic garage door. Additionally, the double-glazed glass design makes them more energy-efficient. To move the windowpane with ease in all conditions, we use traditional elongated slots and wooden springs to provide the tension needed. These factors have made them the best choice for period and timely projects, in addition to their fully weatherproof, lightweight, and paintable frame.
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.
Detailing is important to us at Trade Timber Windows and Doors Sutton and the Georgian sash fitted with our two sills and arches are a real statement of quality and style. We make sure the parts we use are of the highest quality to ensure quality work so you can get an authentic design you are sure to enjoy.
Classic double-hung windows are Victorian sash windows. Open or close the frame by sliding the bottom half up or down, while the top half stays 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. Adding ornate crowns and returns to the top or bottom can further enhance the classic look. There is a wide variety of colours available for our Victorian timber sash windows, including a beautiful blue and green stained finish that will complement any exterior. As well as single, double, and triple glazing, they are available in a variety of sizes. This delightful window style is a perfect choice for anyone who possesses a period home.

The frame material for sash windows can be varied according to the customer’s preferences.
Our Sash Windows are available in uPVC frames which are designed to offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
There are many different types of frame materials out there, but aluminium is the most versatile. The material is lightweight, rust-resistant, and provides excellent thermal properties when used in windows.
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. Wood is a renewable resource and is made from biodegradable natural fibres. Quality, elegance, and design are three major factors that don’t compromise wood frames in any way. They meet every standard criterion set by our customers… and can certainly meet yours!
