A sash horn is one of the key features that make a traditional timber sash horn instantly recognisable. Originally sash horns were an integral part of a timber sash. They were designed to strengthen the mortice and tenon joints of the window and prevent the sashes being opened too far.
You will see a few of our frequently used horn designs below.
Please note we can manufacture to any design horn you currently have.
The newly manufactured sash windows are treated with timber preservation which protects from wet and dry rot. After this the windows receive primer and three coats of a micro porous acrylic paint. All windows are then hung and dried in our dedicated drying room.
Here at SJB Sash Windows we are adept at successfully matching colours with the existing coatings on the property, including stains and varnishes.
SJB new sash windows are crafted using sustainably sourced timber and we match all mouldings and profiles to blend in with your existing sashes and decor seamlessly.
We know that your primary interest is likely to be looking for the most energy efficient double-glazed sash windows for your home. Yes, it’s common knowledge that double-glazed sash windows make a reduction of heat loss, but not many know that the figure is as high as almost a third of all domestic heat escapes through windows. The double-glazed sash windows we install are guaranteed highly energy efficient and will improve your energy efficiency and reduce energy bills. Should you have special requirements there are also upgrade options to further increase the efficiency of your windows.
In addition to improving your energy efficiency and reduced energy bills investing in new double-glazed sash windows will also provide you with reduced noise pollution. Sometimes it’s nice to close your windows and shut the outside world out! Specialised acoustic glass can reduce external noise pollution leaking into your home by up to 60%.
Technically speaking acoustic glass has an additional lamination which features an interlayer not seen in standard double-glazed windows. It’s this extra layer that can shut out extra noise such as road traffic, overhead planes and railway lines. Importantly this extra layer does not negatively effect the light flow into your room, and so you can enjoy reduced noise without effecting the look of your windows.
