Box Sash Windows

About Box Sash Windows


Sliding Sash windows have bestowed elegance upon British buildings since the 17th Century. They are variously described as Victorian or Georgian and are proven to add both character and value to a property. Many period properties actually look wrong without them. Typically, sliding sash windows comprise two sliding sashes that move up and down within their frame, supported either by weights or by modern spring balances. Sliding sash windows have evolved over the centuries and the windows we are replacing today are very elaborate, in keeping with Victorian tastes, with deep bottom rails, decorative horns and contoured glazing bars.
