Historic Wooden Sliding Sash Windows
The sliding sash window is a classic design with enduring appeal. Yet anyone with first-hand experience of an ageing, stiff and draughty original will be familiar with its potential drawbacks.
Based on the traditional box design, our historic sliding sash window provides an authentic, high quality replacement for listed properties and those located in a conservation area. Featuring a cord and weight mechanism, the window is designed with narrow sash rails and thin frames to sit perfectly in the original opening.
For a perfect match with the original, the historic sliding sash window is offered with a number of sash horn styles and period sash window furniture. The sash furniture collection is available in a number of finishes including polished brass, polished chrome, satin chrome, satin nickel, antique brass, bronze and pewter. To browse all finish options, please refer to the Furniture tab. We can also incorporate solid glazing bars and astragal bars into the design.
In addition we offer a range of glazing options. Depending on your needs, we can incorporate narrow cavity double glazing or single glazing, both are available with the option of hand drawn or machine drawn glass for authenticity. If you are unsure of your glazing requirements, we will work with you and your appointed Conservation Officer to achieve a balance of energy efficiency and sympathetic replacement.
As is the case with the sliding sash windows from the Traditional Range, security features have been incorporated into the design of our historic sliding sash window. For maximum security, locking sash fasteners are fitted to the meeting rail and sash stops are fitted on either side of the frame. The sash stops restrict opening for security and safety.
