What are Sash Windows?
Windows come in different types. With the Sash windows standing out of the rest. Sash windows are also known as hung sash windows or box sash windows. They are traditional windows that date back to the 17th century, and has since become a vital aspect of modern architecture in UK.
How Sash Windows work?
Our sash windows are made of one or two movable panels called sashes. Each sash is composed of panels of glass individually called lights. Each sash is used to hold the glasses and frames of the windows from the wall, making it movable.
To help understand how our sash window works, we have outlined some important terms you should know:
- Top rail: The flat frame at the top of your window.
- Sash cord: The cord that runs at the top of the pulley wheel and holds the weights.
- Weight pocket: the weights hang that are created by the timber linings on each side of the window.
- Timber linings: Hollow sections that form the casings of the box frame. They are used to house the weights.
- Weight: Lead weights that are hung on the sash cord to counterbalance for each sliding sash.
- Parting bead: this is a long and narrow seal that separates the upper and lower sash
- Meeting rails: the horizontal rail that meets the corresponding rail of the adjacent sash in the middle when the window is being closed.
- Traditional sill: a board fitted horizontally in the internal base of each sash
- Pulley wheel: The Pulley wheel is at the top of the pulley lining. The sash cord passes over it.
In order to facilitate the movement of the window, our sash windows work on a pulley system. A braided sash cord runs over the top of the pulley along the top rail, and connects the sash weight to the window. To provide aesthetics, we conceal our sash cord in the hollow timbre lining of the window frame. We then add the traditional sill to the bottom of each sash.
We then fit the sash window with a complex hinge on one side. This enables the pulley-balance to be detached easily, aids fresh air and allows easy cleaning. Traditional sill is added to the bottom of each sash. The traditional sill prevents rainwater from gathering inside the frame. As this could cause rot over time.
