Beautiful wooden sash windows, bespoke for your property.
Sash windows consist of two glazed sashes that slide vertically in a frame or a case. A pair of weights, contained within the case, balance each sash. They are attached by cords passed over pulley wheels, which are fixed to the case.
Today, there are two forms of sliding sash windows, the traditional with weights and pulleys which were developed by Sir Christopher Wrens master carpenter and the modern version that is constructed in a similar manner, only the sashes work with a spring balance mechanism instead of cords and weights.
Our sliding sash windows:
Our sliding sash window is traditional in design but without the draughts and rattles often associated with older sliding sash windows.
