UPVC sash windows are a perfect alternative to wooden sash windows, combining traditional Georgian style with modern thermal efficiency and security. Traditional Georgian sash windows are an attractive design feature for a home. Unfortunately, they can often cause drafts or leaks and do not have the same security level that modern homes require.
Sash windows are one of the most popular window designs that have been in existence for over 400 years. Along with casement windows, they have been installed in all types of home, from cottages to palaces and were a status symbol in the Georgian and Victorian eras. Sash windows don’t just look good though, they are cleverly engineered and practical. Nowadays, it’s not just period properties that have sash windows, new homes often incorporate sash windows as they add a little splendour to the overall design.

Traditional meets modern
Traditional vertical sliding box sash windows provided an excellent way of regulating temperature in a room; as warm air rises it can flow out of the gap between the top sash and the window frame, whilst cool air can be drawn through the bottom opening. However, you’ll probably want a window that keeps the heat in and is energy efficient during winter.
Our UPVC vertical sliding Sash windows have brush seals; a triple chambered UPVC frame profile and energy-saving glass. The old-style cord and pulley system has been replaced with steel tracks and stays that ensure your windows open and close easily and stay precisely where you want them.
Also available are UPVC Sash horn windows, which combine a traditional look with modern materials and manufacturing.
In addition, both the window frames can be tilted inwards for ventilation or easy cleaning. Due to their ease of opening, UPVC sash windows can also be used as a safe means of escape from a fire, as per Part B of the Home Building Regulations, giving you further peace of mind.

What’s the cost of UPVC sash windows?
UPVC sash windows typically cost less than their wooden counterparts. Typically a double glazed sash window costs between £300 and £950, but this is just a rough guide. The bigger the window, the higher the cost, plus different colours and options can also increase the price.
What is the difference between sash and casement windows?
The difference is that sash windows open vertically and casement windows usually open outwards (similar to doors). Sash windows have a traditional style, whilst casement windows have a modern style and provide benefits such as better security and ease of cleaning. Sash windows are more complex and can require some maintenance, while casements can generally be left after fitting.
