What is a Sash Window?
Sash windows all have a frame containing glass that slides up and down, but the glazing can be many different styles. you can have single glazing across the entire frame, or have it broken up into smaller glazed spaces using glazing bars. These glazing bars are what allow us to make Georgian or Victorian style sash windows. As well as single glazing, Smart Sash Widows Ltd offer double glazed sash windows in many styles.
The sash in sash windows refers to the cord that holds up the pane of glass. The sash can typically be a chain, cotton rope, or braided silk. This sash runs from both sides of the window over some pulleys and connects to some sash weights. As the sash window is hung by two sashes, it is occasionally referred to as a double-hung window.
Can you get double glazed sash windows?
Double glazed sash windows incorporate two panes of glass that trap a layer of air or gas, which is a natural insulator. Double glazing of the original existing sash windows is where we use the old sash and add a double glazed unit inside it, and no new joinery is needed for the operation. A new sash installed into the original window frame. The double glazing serves as a second buffer between your property and the outside, improving your home’s protection to thermal efficiency and reduced noise emissions.

Our high-quality draught-proofing is a great way to improve your windows’ functionality and thermal efficiency.

When your box frame passes the point of economical repair, a complete replacement of the frame and sashes is the best long-term solution. When rendering this service, we make sure that the new box is built to the original size and installed to fit the existing openings. A hardwood sill is used to install the box sash window, after which they are painted.
