Sliding Sash Windows

The sliding sash has been a classic window design since Georgian Britain. Traditionally, sliding sashes have been elegant, but cold and draughty. Using the latest technology, we can offer you the authentic look of a period sliding sash window combined with the energy performance, security and low maintenance of a modern window. We can achieve A energy ratings and U-values as low as 1.4W/m2K. Designs can vary – including round-headed windows – and you can choose between traditional cords and weights (Windermere) or the modern spiral balance type (Ullswater). There’s even an easy-clean version, where the sashes tilt in as well as slide up and down (Rydal Water); and a double swing version (Dee, see our Commercial site). All our windows come fully factory finished – fully decorated, double-glazed and with their hardware fitted. Why compromise your home with PVC-U imitation wood windows, when you can have the low maintenance, long life and beauty of the real thing?
