Traditional Spring Sash Windows

Spring sash windows offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional box sash designs. They deliver classic style, but incorporate a simpler, more compact and modern spring balance mechanism in place of weights and pulleys.

In other respects, spring balanced sash windows display all the benefits of our traditional timber sashes, with unrivalled quality, design and engineering.

Double-glazed as standard, they are available with safety glass, obscured glass, acoustic glass or solar control glass. Triple glazing is also available for larger contracts. Twin gasketing ensures reliable weather containment.

These spring sash windows are well chosen for mid-range new developments, as well as replacing classic windows on non-listed buildings.

(For historic and listed buildings, we recommend you browse our heritage windows and doors.)
