Timber sash windows
Timber sash windows are the most traditional of window designs. We can supply it with box sash with lead counterweights or the more modern solid frame with a sprung balance system. Casements can be fitted with double, and incorporate an applied Georgian glazing bar. Each timber Sash window is assembled by hand to ensure a quality unit, and fitted with weather gaskets to the parting bead and staff beads; this will improve acoustic and thermal performance.
Box Sash Windows
This was the uPVC window of its day and often made by the carpenters on site as a property was being built. The original windows had very little in the way of draught seals and this along with the single glazing could be cold and suffer from condensation.
Our box sash windows maintain the overall appearance of traditional windows but with all the advantages of modern weather seals, double glazing and secure locking.
Sprung Balance Sash Windows
When fitting sliding sash windows into new build properties, or replacing original windows it is well worth considering a sprung balance sash window. This looks just the same as a traditional box sash window but without the side boxes containing the lead counter weights. Instead we use a stainless steel spiral that is fixed to the side of the casement and acts in the same way as the lead weights. This is easy to maintain, comes with a 10 year guarantee and gives a nice smooth action.
