Sash windows first became popular in the Georgian period and they’ve never really gone out of fashion. Sliding sash windows comprise two sashes, one in front of the other. The separate panes slide up and down along a vertical groove in the frame.
This heritage design provides both an authentic-looking window feature, and a practical convection system all in one. When both the bottom and the top are partially opened the window allows heat to escape naturally, and the cooler air to flow in.
UPVC windows offer the considerable advantages of being cost-effective, and low maintenance in a range of attractive designs. They only need a regular wipe over with soapy water to keep their ‘good-as-new’ looks, and uPVC won’t swell, crack, rust or corrode. Being a poor conductor of heat, uPVC helps you to keep the heat in your home during the winter, and outside during the summer.
uPVC sash windows can be finished to match the style of your house. Our woodgrain effect foiled finishes include: White Ash, Cream, Rosewood or Golden Oak. When it comes to traditional properties, the authentic detailing to the sash horns makes it difficult to tell them apart from timber frames. Colours include: Chartwell, Cream, Cotswold Biscuit or Anthracite.
