Sash & case windows are a traditional style of window that has been reinvented in the double glazing era to remove the problems with drafts that were often associated with them. The classic sash window has one or more movable panels or sashes that form a frame holding the panes of glass. These are often separated by glazing bars, moulded strips of wood.
Any window with this style can be called a sash window but technically, only those that slide horizontally or vertically are true sash windows. Made with double glazed units, the new style of sash and case windows can achieve an impressive level of energy efficiency compared with traditional styles. It is also easy to control the level of ventilation offered by the windows.
This style of window is popular with period properties and are sometimes required on listed buildings if they already have this style in place. The new double glazed versions retain the original character and authenticity of the building while providing extra energy efficiency and security.
