What Are Traditional Sash Windows?

Traditional Sash Windows (or sliding sash windows to give them their full title) are the most common type of window in the UK, and are famous for their movement. The term ‘sash’ is derived from the mechanism they use to open, which consists of a number of individual vertical frames (or slices – or sashes!) that support a pane of glass. As you can imagine, this makes these windows very unique and attractive for homeowners.

Types of Traditional Sash Windows We Provide and Install?

Box sash

Box sash are the most common type of sash window. They feature one movable sash and a fixed pane at the bottom called a bottom rail. Each panel can be opened individually using hinges within the panel’s side. Side stiles are built into the frame to restrict movement and hold both panels in place.

Box sash windows are used with conventional (or hung) frames. Box sash windows consist of a window frame with glass panes set into it. “Box” refers to the wooden box surrounding the pane, which is sunken into the window space.

The box type sash window is traditionally used, both aesthetically and practically, in the majority of older properties across the UK. They can also be found across Europe and are known as casement windows.

Easy clean

Are you looking for a traditional sash window but can’t find what you want? Easy clean sash windows are the solution. Originally introduced in the UK, easy clean sash windows represent a milestone in the history of British design. Traditional sash windows historically had a less than perfect reputation for being difficult to operate and maintain.

As the name suggests, easy clean sash windows are a traditional style of window that are easier to maintain. Throughout the years they have undergone many changes and improvements including a change in the glass. Traditional sash windows consist of two sashes per fresh air window with a locking device at the top of each sash for security and safety.

Easy clean sash windows have improved glass which is anti-fog and anti-reflective. The bottom pane is often factory tinted to stop any glare from street lights or passing cars. There is no heat loss because there is still single glazing but there is less passage of sound, making them ideal for living rooms or bedrooms where privacy needs to be maintained.

Spring sash

Spring sash windows are a type of traditional, wood-framed window that originated in England. They consist of two vertically sliding sashes arranged side-by-side on either side of a fixed central pane. The lower sash is operated using a pulley system, which is attached to one or both sides of the window casing.

A rod known as a “tie bar” (or “spool”) runs through the grooves in each groove, allowing the upper and lower sashes to slide up or down within their respective grooves. Traditional spring sash windows are a beautiful way to add both character and value to your home. Similar to the wooden window frame, spring sash windows are made up of several parts that work together to form one window.

All the popular types of traditional sash windows are our speciality and we can work with you to determine the one that best suits your home. Give us a call on 01273 257 597 today to get started.
