Historic Timber Horizontal Sash Windows
Also commonly referred to as a Yorkshire sash window, our historic timber horizontal sash window couples a traditional sliding mechanism with advanced draught proofing. For smooth opening and closing with little effort, the sliding mechanism is operated by a low resistance track system.
As with all windows in our Historic Range, the historic timber horizontal sash window can be manufactured with very narrow profiles allowing them to accurately replicate the appearance of the original windows. This is particularly important on the meeting rail (where the two sashes meet) where we are able to supply a 35mm width for single glazing and a 40mm width for double glazing.
Our historic timber horizontal sash window can be arranged in almost any configuration, including:
- Right sliding;
- Left sliding;
In addition to the above opening types, they can be customised in many other ways to allow them to match accurately with any existing features that may need to be replicated, including profile moulds and widths. The paint or stain finish can also be accurately matched. Whilst we offer a number of paint and stain colour options (see the Materials tab for all available), we can provide a precise match to the original colour; all we would need is a physical sample or a RAL, Natural Colour System or British Standard colour reference.
Across our Historic Range we offer both single and slim insulated glazing units (IGUs). All of our slim insulated glazing units are fully tested to the requirements for the durability of glass units given in the BS EN 1279 series of standard for Glass in Buildings.
To mimic the reflections provided by original glass, we can incorporate either hand or machine drawn glass into the window design.
