The sliding sash window is one of the most classic window styles and can be seen at many traditional residences.
To tell apart a sliding sash window from all other window design styles, look out for it having two vertically sliding panels, also referred to as the sashes. Originally, these sashes would be crafted from wood, but contemporary sashes tend to be made using UPVC. There are hidden, counterbalanced weights within the window frame and these help each sash move up and down so easily.
Sliding sash windows are synonymous for being so tasteful and timeless. One of their biggest conveniences is the fantastic source of ventilation they can provide – use one or both sashes in conjunction to add some air flow to your living area. People’s love of sliding sash windows is also to do with how effortlessly they merge with homes possessing traditional architecture.
West Yorkshire Windows has retained the trademark styling of an authentic sliding sash window but brought it up-to-date with enhanced security mechanisms and modern energy efficient glazing.
Homeowners and architects are unified in their adoration of sliding sash windows, an allure that has endured for hundreds of years and will do so for many hundreds more.
