Sliding Sash Weights windows are the most recognisable traditional English windows – they have been a characteristic feature of UK’s architecture since the 18th century. Two vertically sliding sashes are
operated by two independent weight and cord mechanisms introduced by Robert Hooke in 1670. Our selection of best quality timber and the hand finish we add guarantees a unique and stylish look.
Sliding Sash Spiral Balance windows are a modern version of windows designed back in the 17th century. Weights and cords – the original opening mechanism – have been replaced by a spring balance system manufactured by Caldwell for easier sliding. However, the traditional English look has been entirely retained. Vertical opening allows for the space around the window to be fully utilised.
The Elegance option with the springs fully concealed within the frame adds an extra piece of aesthetics to the window.
Sash Tilt & Slide windows are an advanced variant of spiral balance sash windows with the extra
feature of both sashes tilting, which makes their cleaning easier – they can be given a quick wipe
down with a cloth and be gleaming again without stepping outside.
Sash Mock & Slide windows are a variant of spiral balance sash windows for those who would like to
retain the traditional look of English windows but do not need a complex opening mechanism and look for a more economical option. Here the bottom sash slides on springs, whilst the top sash tilts to the outside.
