Wooden Box Sash Windows

Notting hill sash windows

First appeared in Europe at the end of the 17th century, box sash windows also called sliding sash windows, quickly have become one of the most popular window types for both classic and modern houses. Traditionally, sash windows are made exclusively for houses of Georgian and Victorian architectural styles – these window types allowed them to achieve a unique symmetrical balance. The majority of older buildings in the United Kingdom were built with sash windows and many contemporary constructions are still using them.

Basically, a box sash window refers to the type of a window made of wood and coming with sliding panels that open and close vertically. Their typical design is a single-glazed pattern with several panes above and below, usually six-over-six. Such a window is fitted in a boxed aperture, and its specific operation is achieved due to the unique balancing system consisting of pulleys, counterweights and chain cords that are placed in hollow spaces around the window box. In fact, box sash windows come ideal for the British climate as they allow to be closed with a very narrow gap left that still provides good ventilation without rain getting inside.
