A sash window is a very popular window type that represents movable panels with several panes divided by strips, also known as muntins. They can be both single and double glazed and their panels may slide either horizontally or vertically. A sash sliding frame is usually made of wood. These windows have been around for great many years already - since the middle of the 17th century. They can be easily found in London and are considered as an indispensable attribute of the original city’s architecture.
Plenty of modern London buildings - both residential and commercial - are also built with wood sash windows installed. They can add a distinct character to any house by providing traditional elegance and decorative feel to its exterior. Contemporary sash windows still retain the beauty and usability of their some older models. However, they have been redesigned slightly in the way they work for improved and more convenient performance. They are still able to slide up and down though. Due to the modern technologies and materials used, sliding parts feature a better weather resistance quality now, while double-glazed frame provides excellent warmth retention and street noise buffering.
