Sash Windows In Preston
Considerations you should make when it comes to sash windows, box sash windows and sliding sash windows – Written by Patchett Joinery of Preston
Officially, windows with glazed panels that are opened with a sliding action are referred to as sash windows. They are popular in Victorian and Georgian houses having the classic arrangement of three panes across and two panes upon each one of the sashes. The window is opened up by sliding the upper sash down over the lower section of the window.
Whilst they are attributed to the works of Robert Hooke, there is no apparent proof to aid the claim. The classic design of windows has spread out across the world and they are a mainstay here in the UK. They these are known as hung sash windows owing to the timeless layout where one panel hangs over the other. However, they can be typically called sliding sash windows and box sash windows.

Important features of our sash windows
The most impressive feature of our windows is our design and the use of pulleys and weights. Weights are used for lowering the sash whilst pulleys assist in pulling them up. These make for a smoother operation of your windows whilst recreating the classic function of the sash window. The addition of vent and angel locks in the window system improves security measures. Another feature is the double draught sealing which guarantees a much better retention of heat in the property. Using our products means that your house will always be comfy as well as keeping out the wet autumn weather and the cold winter temperatures. You won’t have to worry about cold gusts of air rushing into your living room. The windows also have a locking fitch catch. Closing the fitch catch brings together the two sashes, causing them to seal completely.
We also have concealed trickle ventilation built into our windows, which makes them ideal for new build homes or homes where extensive renovation has taken place. Externally, you won’t be able to see the trickle vents as they are completely hidden from view. You will additionally notice that our sash eyes and lifts come in a variety of colours so you can choose one that matches your home style.

We at Patchett Joinery have put a great deal of effort into the style and design and production of our wooden sash windows. The end result continues to be windows that mirror the original versions but which are much easier to operate. You might not have known, but original Victorian sash windows were very frustrating to use. Classic versions of the Victorian sash window made use of different manufacturing processes as well as inferior materials making them fragile and difficult to open.
Our windows make use of a revised pulley and weight system that has been refined to make sure the end user gets a great experience that is easy as well as functional. To bring the upper pane down and over its lower counterpart, you simply release it and it glides down by using the weight of the window itself. The pulleys are at hand so you can bring it back up whenever you need. The pulleys are fitted with sash cords that you simply grab a hold of the cord, apply a little pressure and the pane climbs up.
Unlike their common counterparts, you won’t have to worry about a thief cracking open the sash windows. We make this incredibly difficult and near impossible since we have carefully constructed the designs of our vent and angel locks. Vent locks are very secure as they stop the movement of the sash from anything more than 10cm. Angel locks on the other hand, immediately reset once the sash is closed. This offers you comprehensive peace of mind without worrying about the potential for burglars cracking through your windows.
