The panes of the window slide past each other either vertically or horizontally rather than being pivoted at a fixed point. The fact that the panes slide past each other means that half the window can open completely and may allow cleaning of all the glass from within the house.
Rather than the original system of weights and pulleys used in older windows, modern sash windows utilise a series of spring and spiral balancers, these balance the heaviness of the open pane and keep the window open. This mechanism is incorporated neatly into the frame of the window and allows effortless opening and closing.
Despite the styling being essentially traditional, today’s sash windows offer all the advantages of fully sealed double-glazed units with modern uPVC frames, which are clean and secure.
Our expert fitters can advise you whether modern sash windows can provide a stylish alternative to your home.

Using a simple colour coded A-G rating, similar to that seen on white goods, The Thermal Rating Register demonstrate the energy efficiency of windows. The highter the rating the better the overall thermal efficiency and therefore the greater the savings on your fuel bills. Also taken into account is the amount of air that can escape through the frame, and the positive benefit of heat energy gained from solar energy. The Building regualtions as amended in 2010 require replacement windows to be a minimum of a ‘C’ rating. All our windows are ‘A’ rated.
