Sash windows of the highest quality
From large country estates to chic town houses, sash windows offer a timeless elegance that can capture a sense of heritage for any property. Formed of two sliding glazed frames, referred to as ‘sashes’ together in an outer frame, one of the most recognisable features of the sash window is its striking visual design.

Traditional Sash Windows
Our traditional range of Box Sash Windows are a highly popular choice for homes of character. Featuring fine craftmanship, superior construction without break joints and quality materials they would add charm to any property built to a traditional style but are particularly suited to large country homes and townhouses.
Energy efficient 24mm double glazing (U Value 1.2) is fitted as standard along with face-applied glazing bars and a choice of external mouldings. Weather seals are included for all year round performance and energy efficiency.
PAS24 Sash Windows
Tested to the PAS24 security standard and available in sizes up to a massive 1400 x 2200mm, our PAS24 Sash Windows provide Part Q compliance for new builds and offer higher levels of protection for all types of property. The reinforced construction features anti-rattle meeting stiles and with Part Q compliant ironmongery, they provide a secure solution for many character homes.
Available with 24mm double glazing (U Value 1.2) as standard or with slimline 4-6-4mm glazing suitable for conservation properties. (U Value 1.5) they are fitted with face-applied glazing bars and durable weather seals for energy efficiency.
Conservation Sash Windows
Our Conservation range is designed for properties in conservation areas where the original character of the property must be retained, or for other character properties were a traditional look is desired.
Conservation windows feature our 14mm slimline double glazing, giving the outwards appearance of single glazing but with much improved energy efficiency. Our Conservation Sash Windows are also now available certified to PAS24.
We offer this range in two options: Conservation : With face-applied glazing bars Conservation + : With true solid glazing bars
Heritage Sash Windows
Sash windows from our Heritage range are hand crafted to closely replicate original designs found in listed buildings and properties in conservation areas, allowing for authentic replacement. Manufactured with quality timber using slim timber frames and sash sections, the sashes are operated using traditional weights and cords.
Mouldings and glazing bars are tailored to closely match original period designs from the property’s historical era, whether that be Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian or Queen Anne. Sashes feature single glazing with true solid glazing bars, internal lambs’ tongue mouldings and an external putty bead for an authentic appearance.
Spring Balance Windows
Our spring balance sash windows offer a modern alternative to the weight-based system and are most suited to properties free of conservation constraints but where a traditional appearance is required. Spring-loaded mechanisms are situated each side of the sashes instead of cords and weights. The main benefit of the spring balance is a smaller rebate in the brickwork, as boxes are not required and the window can allow in more light.
All windows are supplied with ironmongery of your choice and fully finished with 3 layers of microporous paint for durability. Sashes include parting beads, draught excluders and energy efficient 24mm glazing. PAS24 certification is also available.
Sash Window Range Summary
Box sash windows are fitted with a choice of sash lifts, sash fasteners to lock the sashes in place and for added security lockable sash stops; and when weights are used sash pulleys.
There are many styles and finishes available when it comes to sash window furniture, many of which are shown on our website. Where a heritage finish is required options such as mottled antique brass, antique black and polished brass are available.
