We provide long warranties on our timber products
Our luxury timber sliding sash and case windows bring together the traditional feel of a sash window and the sophistication of modern materials and efficiency. We’re proud that our quality handmade traditional windows are part of some of the most beautiful restorations and new builds across the UK. Vertical sliding sash windows or ‘box sash’ have top and bottom sashes that slide. The weight of both sashes can be counter-balanced by a series of steel weight hidden in the sash boxes. Some modern windows use a method called spiral balance, which can allow for a slimmer frame profile, giving more options for fitting.
Less common is the horizontal sliding window, known as the ‘Yorkshire sash’ which is used in some parts of the UK.
All of our windows are handmade to order by specialist craftsmen. You can choose from a range of specialist timbers to complete the perfect look or choose our Accoya Timber, which is guaranteed for 50 years.
Our windows are rigorously tested to offer the best performance in the UK climate. They can come double or triple glazed for exceptional energy efficiency and sound insulation. Not only do they meet standard regulations but they comply with listed building regulations too. All of our vertical sliding sash windows have been designed to eliminate the drafts and rattles often associated with traditional sliding sash windows. This is thanks to the incorporation of the flip, bubble, and brush pile gaskets throughout.
The window must be fitted behind the outer leaf of brick or stone, in keeping with most listed buildings in the UK and major conservation areas.
The UK has a rich architectural history that needs to be preserved. Those properties with listed status are subject to a number of rules which govern how they can be repaired and modernised. The windows in a listed building are subject to a particularly stringent set of guidelines. This is primarily due to the disappearance of traditional windows from older buildings due to the relative ease with which they could be replaced.
Windows can be important historical artefacts in the history of a building. Restoring a listed building can be a huge responsibility. Not only do you want to do justice to the history of the property, but there are many regulatory hoops to jump through in regards to the style and types of materials used to restore it. Our vertical sliding windows use traditional weights and pulley sliding slash windows, designed for the specialist needs of conservation areas throughout the UK.
Though very beautiful, original vertical sliding sash window had a reputation for being draughty, noisy and unreliable to use. Our modern techniques mean that the windows we produce can achieve an A-rating and U-values from 1.4w/m2 K within the double glazed model and as low as 0.8 W/m2 K with triple glazing.
