Sash Styles

Meet conservation requirements with four sash options

Not only do we offer one of the broadest timber product ranges in the industry, we also provide aesthetic choices in terms of sash window design. With four unique and innovative sash options, clients are able to meet specifications and choose a design that also meets their personal needs.

They all are based around the traditional timber design of ‘putty-line’ external and ‘ovolo’ internal mouldings. This ensures that you can pass on flexibility with our timber casement supply.

To further replicate the appearance of traditional timber sash windows, we can fit astragal bars and leaded glass. We can match the leaded design to an existing pattern or provide a range of classic options such as the diamond style.

timber sash windows wooden sash windowsPreserve and protect with colour

Our timber sliding sash windows and other products are available in a range of translucent and opaque finishes. We offer most colour options but we have our own standard colour range. Colours may appear slightly different on the various species of wood so we would recommend requesting a sample.

Translucent finishes preserve the natural beauty of your timber windows while opaque resembles the traditional colouring of the past.

With opaque finishes, all RAL colours are available, giving an almost unlimited choice when it comes to personalising or matching to existing windows.

Our paint system also protects the wood from harmful ultra-violet rays and from water ingress thanks to it’s microporous structure, which allows excess moisture to escape. Our paint is also flexible meaning it can expand and contract naturally with the timber.


Efficient and Effective Glazing

All of our windows, including our timber sliding sash windows, come with high performance glazing that effectively prevents heat from leaving but also allows in a comfortable amount of natural light.

With a range of efficient glazing options, an existing pattern can be matched. They can also be an attractive way to maintain privacy. With varying degrees of obscurity, natural light can still enter the room through these stylish and practical sash windows.


Personalise with traditional hardware

Our sliding sash windows come complete with a deep bottom rail, run-through sash horns as well as choice of other features and hardware to complement any home. From PAS24 espagnolettes to shootbolts, all our locks offer security as well as style so you can enjoy safety and style without compromise.
