What is a sash window?
Sash windows have been around since 1670 and have maintained their popularity as they promote airflow, are easy to clean and have a timeless beauty.
A sash window is made up of moveable panels that form a frame to hold panels of glass. The weight of the glazed panel is balanced by a heavy sash weight concealed within the frame or a spiral balance. The weight is connected to the window by a braided sash cord that runs over a pulley in the frame, enabling the window to slide open easily.
Double hung windows
Double hung windows are the same as a standard sash windows but have two moveable panels so that you can have an open gap at the top and at the bottom.
