   Sash Windows 

  The design of our vertical sliding sash window represents the simple grace of English sash windows progressively developed from early use by Wren in late 17th Century through their peak of elegance in the late Georgian period and in common usage by the Victorians and Edwardians. Sash windows were used almost exclusively in new buildings, from Royal Palaces to simple cottages. Soon sash windows became fashionable status symbol across Britain and the Colonies.  

The dimensions of our sash window frames, glazing bars and meeting rails have been made slim and with traditional mouldings but modified with advanced construction technology.   To carry the extra weight of double-glazed units, our sliding sashes are hung on solid brass chains or sash cords retaining the  proven reliability of simple counter-balance weights.   Q-Lon draught strips stop rattles, and extremely high insulation (1.1W/m2K) glazing units minimise heat loss and prevent draughts. Multi-layer timber minimise the swelling, twisting and warping that causes jamming on windows of lesser quality during wet weather.
