One of the most gracious window designs ever produced is the sliding sash window. Common to all early Georgian and Victorian properties and also enjoying a resurgence in modern architecture with many new properties being built in a Georgian or Victorian Style.
There are two main material options available for Sliding Sash Windows; Timber and uPVC.
Timber is available with either a traditional cords & weights operation or spiral balance (spring balance). These are available in all glazing styles and any colour. Timber is engineered ensuring that the windows do not twist or warp, is available in softwood or hardwood and factory finished with a Microporous Teknos paint system.
The maintenance free option is uPVC or Timber Alternative. Timber Alternative is uPVC ‘wrapped’ with a grained wood finish. uPVC is available in Satin finish white, Timber Alternative is available in a huge selection of colours which negates the requirement of painting. The frame options are available welded or mechanically jointed for a more timber-like appearance. You can also add options such as run through horns, deep bottom rail, traditional furniture and externally fitted Authentic Georgian glazing bars. All uPVC and Timber Alternative Sliding Sash Window options are Spiral Balance (Spring Balance).
