What Are Sash Windows?
Sash windows were, traditionally, single-pane systems. These sash windows work, traditionally, by sliding one sash over another to open and close. Bespoke Sash window systems are evident in many traditional and classic buildings; however, it is a style which has translated well into the modern age.
One of the significant differences nowadays, however, is that sash windows use more than one sheet of glass. It is common for you to see double-glazed timber sash windows in London and elsewhere. Double and triple glazing are modern window standards we feel all homes can benefit from. While traditional sash used by UK homes in the past may have served a practical use, they may not have offered the most comfort and warmth.
Therefore, as a leading specialist, we blend the best of the old and the new. We take the simple, space-saving practicality of traditional timber sash window design and introduce modern comforts and standards. This way, homes can benefit from the stunning, customisable looks of a sash window while getting all the warmth and comfort benefits of the modern era. Our window innovations lead the way in terms of flexible, practical design. Let’s take a closer look at some of the options we have available.
