Sash windows are particularly popular at the moment amongst customers choosing to refit period properties, as they seamlessly complement historic features in old 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.
The classic look and excellent energy efficiency of sash windows have made them a popular choice for homeowners for over a century. The right ones can reduce draughts and lower energy bills if they are purchased and installed correctly.
Our windows are custom-made with highly durable sashes that make it difficult for unauthorised individuals to lift them. 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 also have historically been more secure than other types of windows because burglars have to break through layers/panels and they are usually back-filled with glass pieces on impact and therefore difficult to enter.
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. The secret is in the way 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.
Here’s what’s even better: unlike other traditional windows, you’ll never have to replace springs once they break!
Windows are a vital investment, one of the most visible parts of a home, and a key factor in its overall value.

We install an extensive range of sash windows. Among each type, there are different choices for the number and location of panes per window. 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. Trade Timber Windows and Doors Westminster’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. By using a series of tapered rails, an extra depth is added to the window frame.
These windows are crafted from the highest quality materials, providing a classic look and modern soundproofing properties. In addition to triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, box sash windows offer attractive features that are visually pleasing whether viewed from inside or outside your home.
Window components that have been modified to work with a counterweight are known as spring balanced sashes. Sash windows with Spring balance can be opened wider than traditional sash windows, up to 90 degrees.
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. They’re also more energy-efficient thanks to their innovative double glazed glass design. To move the windowpane with ease in all conditions, we use traditional elongated slots and wooden springs to provide the tension needed. 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.
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. These additions create an original look in period properties when installed discreetly.

The frame material for sash windows can be varied according to the customer’s preferences.
A uPVC frame is available for our Sash Windows; these windows provide well-insulated and energy-efficient solutions.
Aluminium is one of the most versatile frame materials out there. Applied to windows, it provides excellent thermal properties because it is lightweight and rust-resistant at the same time.
Using high-density polyethene (HDPE) to strengthen the frame, we sandwich it between two metal pieces to create exceptionally strong and durable sashes. 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.
