Venetian Sash Windows
Our Venetian Sash Window is the standard style of sash window that was used in terraced houses in the 19th century.
Traditional sash windows work by one or more sections, supported by cords/chains and counterweights, sliding over other sections.
Our Venetian Sash window is a triple sliding box sash window, where the two outside panes are static and the central pane slides up and down. This allows for slimmer mullions for a more authentic look.
The two outer boxes house the weights which control the smooth movement of the central section of the window.
Our Venetian sash windows come double glazed with draught stripping and engineered timber as standard and is available in both the 176mm deep full box sash and the 142mm deep slim sash with either metal chains or pre-tensioned cords.

We use engineered timber on all our sash windows.
Engineered timber is created by laying layers of solid wood together with the grain going in opposite directions. This creates a remarkably strong and rigid material which means that our windows never bend or warp, which is a traditional weakness of Sash windows.
Sash windows traditionally were infamous for being draughty and losing heat. We have solved these problems by installing insulation strips and double glazing. All our windows have hi spec double glazing fitted as standard, which guarantees high levels of thermal insulation to keep you cosy and warm while saving you money.
Traditionally Sash windows weren’t very secure. We’ve addressed this by fitting all glass from the inside so it can’t be removed from the outside, fitting limit stops so they can’t be opened too far and fitting 2 key lockable fitch catches(which keeps the insurance man happy)
To maximise the life time of your windows, we use micro-porous paint, which gives great protection yet needs virtually no maintenance. Our paints are available in over 200 RAL shades and can be matched to both Farrow and Ball and Fired Earth colours to co-ordinate with your other colour schemes.
To maintain the traditional appearance of your windows, you can finish them off with either traditional brass, mottled antique brass, oil rubbed bronze, antique pewter, polished chrome, satin nickel, satin chrome, or polished stainless steel catches and sash lifts from our ironmongery range.
