What Are the Benefits of Sash Windows?
Sash windows have a traditional charm
Sash windows are the classic old-world style of window with a very traditional feel and often viewed as the symbol of traditional architecture. They are also very effective from an energy efficiency point of view, as they allow natural light to filter behind them whilst mitigating draughts through the frame, often making them popular choices for modern-day buildings looking for a classic aesthetic.
Sash windows are energy efficient
For over a century, sash windows have been a popular choice for homeowners because of their classic looks and excellent energy-saving properties. If they are bought and installed correctly, they can help save on energy bills and reduce the effects of draughts easily.
Sash windows offer increased window security
The added weight of the sashes (operating shutters) can prevent someone from lifting the window open. The extra weight also helps slow down entry by a burglar due to the force needed to push the window up if there is resistance. Sash windows also have historically been more secure than other types of windows because burglars have to break through 3 layers/panels and they are usually back-filled with glass pieces on impact and therefore difficult to enter.
Sash windows are low maintenance
Sash windows are low maintenance thanks to their design and durable materials. The secret is in the way they open. Their moveable parts are sandwiched between two incredibly strong hardwood sides, often with a layer of felt or weather-stripping in between them to keep out the elements. And here’s the best part: unlike other traditional windows, you won’t have to worry about replacing any springs once they snap!
Sash windows will increase the value of your home
The windows of a home can have more of an impact on its overall value than anything else. Sash windows do create value in buildings, and because they stay open without the use of any additional equipment, they can ultimately help you save on energy costs.

What Are the Types of Sash Windows We Install?
We install several types of sash windows. With each type, there are many variations in the number and location of panes per window. Here are our most popular sash windows:
Box sash windows
A box sash window is one of many styles of sash windows we install. It’s a traditional style window that features two vertical wooden or metal sections – the upper and lower sashes which can open for ventilation. Originating in England, this style was largely popularised due to its lightweight and efficient heat transfer.
Ace Glazing Brighton’s box sash windows are also characterised by a warm and stylish exterior design that blends seamlessly with the architecture of your home. This is achieved by a unique tapered-rail device, which adds extra depth to the window frame.
These windows feature authentic timber materials and premium decoration options, making them perfect for any style of home. Box sash windows also feature triple glazing and warm edge sprigging, which provides attractive features that look good from inside or outside your home.
Spring balanced sash windows
A spring balanced sash is a window that has been modified to allow it to be used with a counterweight. A Spring balanced sash window can be opened much wider than other traditional windows, up to 90 degrees of opening. Because the balance is spring-loaded, there is no handle to pull, and once the window is opened, it will stay open until enough pressure builds up to push it closed, similar to an automatic garage door.
They’re also more energy-efficient thanks to their innovative double glazed glass design. We use the traditional method of elongated slots and wooden ‘springs’ to provide tension for the windowpane to move with ease but still hold firm in all conditions.
These features combined with our fully weatherproof, lightweight and paintable frames, have made them the number 1 choice for period and time-sensitive projects.
Georgian sash windows
Our Georgian sash windows are a unique type of window that is perfect for those who require period style sash windows that provide additional ventilation. When installed, they are a discrete inclusion that adds an original look to period properties.
Detailing is important to us at Ace Glazing Brighton and the Georgian sash fitted with our two sills and arches are a real statement of quality and style. We use top class authentic parts to ensure quality workmanship so you can be certain of getting a period design that will be great.
Victorian sash windows
A Victorian sash window is a classic double-hung sash window. The bottom half of the frame slides up and down to open or close, while the top half stays stationary. The Victorian sash is very traditional, and still make up one of the most common styles of window today.
Typically there will be a large gap between the bottom edge of the sash and the frame – this is called the reveal, and it naturally creates space that would allow cold air to enter through th frame. The classic look can be enhanced further by adding ornate crowns or returns to the top and bottom.
Our stunning Victorian timber sash windows are available in a wide range of colours, including a beautiful blue and green stained finishes to complement any exterior. They are also available in single, double, or triple glazing configurations.
Finish your period property with this delightful window style today.
Edwardian sash windows
Edwardian sash windows have long been a mainstay in historic homes, but many people are finding that they work well in contemporary settings as well.
They can be installed in new builds, and they add historic flair to new or existing homes. Edwardian sash windows are typified by their unique shape. Unique due to the fact that many of its historical features have been created and still kept up today.
Our traditional and authentic Edwardian Sash Windows are not only a symbol of elegance and a refined design but also an investment that will pay for itself many times over with the amount of money you’ll be saving on bills.

Sash Windows Frame Materials
Our sash windows are available in a range of different frame materials to suit your needs.
Our Sash Windows are available in uPVC frames which are designed to offer energy efficiency and insulation from the elements.
Aluminium is one of the most versatile frame materials out there. It’s lightweight, rust-resistant and, when used in a window, provides outstanding thermal properties.
Our composite sashes are made of a high-density polyethene (HDPE) core sandwiched between two pieces of aluminium creating an extremely strong and durable frame. The frames are then painted with an acrylic latex finish to protect them from UV rays, weathering, bird and animal damage as well as chemicals that can lead to corrosion.
When it comes to windows, wood is the best choice. Wood is a renewable resource and made from natural fibres that are biodegradable. Plus, wood frames meet every standard criterion set by our customers… and can certainly meet yours!. Ace Glazing Brighton’s sash wood frames offer a warm, cosy feel and are available in a variety of styles, including modern or traditional.
