Georgian Sash Windows
The Georgian era was when sash windows became a popular choice across the UK. This particular style of window is made up of two sashes, where one of the glazed panels moves, and the other remains stationary.
The most distinctive feature associated with Georgian sash windows is the six over six configuration. During the Georgian period, the original design incorporated Integral bars to split up the glazed panels into six sections per panel.
However, nowadays, the bars are used for decorative purposes only. Their unique design preserves the look of traditional wooden box sash windows, maintaining the authenticity of your property.
Perfect for period properties, our Georgian sliding sash windows will add traditional charm to your London home. Their distinctive aesthetic and modern design provide double glazed windows that excel in both their function and form. This type of sash window could be the perfect fit if you have an older property and wish to preserve its history while benefiting from modern performance.
For enhanced authenticity, our double glazed Georgian sash windows come with fully integrated horns – a continuation of the sash frame. A fully A-rated window system will provide improved heat retention, keeping your London home warmer for longer. Privacy glass and noise reduction glass can be installed to enhance the performance of your sash windows even more.

Edwardian Sash Windows
It was during the Edwardian era that the desire to have natural light flood a room was popular amongst many homeowners. The design of Edwardian sash windows incorporated the use of singular, large panes of glass rather than multiple panes of glass.
Edwardian sash windows are also ideal for homeowners in London that also own period, heritage or traditional style properties. Commonly featured in the updated design, the top pane of glass will feature multiple integral bars for decorative purposes, whereas the lower pane will feature a single glazed window with no decorative features.
During this period, sliding sash windows had become incredibly detailed in their design. This can be seen in the intricately moulded transoms that often ran across the meeting rail; mounted on the sash windows frame. All windows featured more ornate decorative internal architrave, giving it an elegant and characteristic aesthetic.
Robust and incredibly secure, modern sash windows are manufactured using durable materials and pre-tensioned window balances. This gives you the peace of mind you need, without the worry of problematic weights and cords, as well as swelling, squeaking or repainting affecting the aesthetic and performance of your replacement windows.
