Sash Windows

Invented in the mid 17th century in London, the humble sash window went on to transform British architecture throughout the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian era's.  The elegant proportions and slim sightlines form the most beautiful and efficient window style history has produced.  Despite their beauty, sash windows have always been plagued with maintenance problems such as rot, swelling or warping of the woodwork, rattling in the wind due to shrinkage in the timber, and problems brought on by careless application of paint.  The sliding mechanism of sash windows makes them more vulnerable to these problems than traditional casement windows.

Our aim was to design a sliding sash window that wouldn't rot, warp or swell, that would be weather rated to the same standard as our casement window with industry leading insulation values whilst keeping the character and charm that we've all come to love about the sash window.
