Sash Windows in Brighton, East Sussex
A sash window, also known as a hung sash, is a frame built with one or more moveable panels, which holds glass panes, often multiple panes, separated by glazing bars. For a sash window to work, a heavy steel or cast iron counter-weight, or sash weight, is used to balance the weight of the panel and is concealed within the frame.
A chain or braided cotton sash cord that goes over a pulley at the frame top is used to connect the sash weight with the window. ‘Simplex hinges’ are used to fit sash windows; this allows the side of the window to be locked into hinges while the counterbalance is detached from the other side.
