Various styles of sash windows

Most sash windows are made to measure, as with most properties in london they are unique and the windows should match the existing.

This said there are distinct types of sash windows

Georgian Era 1720 - 1840
Normally six over 6 panes traditionally with one sash fixed.
this would have meant 6 panes of glass in the top and bottom sashes.
these are now made with both sashes moving, and double glazed units with glazing bars placed on top.
here are some examples.

Victorian Era 1830 - 1910
traditionally 6 or 4 panes of glass used in designs with both sashes moving. As the cost of glass manufacture dropped the panes of glass got bigger. Both sashes operate in Victorian sash windows.
we supply these double glazed with glazing bars.
here are some examples.

Edwardian Era 1901 - 1919
Typically this has no glazing bars in the lower sash, to allow more light to pass into the room, this was the fashionable style of sash window in the Edwardian era. Having large panes of glass was expensive and a sign of afflence during that time.
both sashes do move in this design.
we supply these double glazed with glazing bars.
here are some examples.

All sash windows and frames are made to measure to match your existing design or meet your choice for a new build or rennovation project, call to discuss your design and build requirements.
