“Our joinery makes box sash windows using fine timbers in a variety of colours and stains and to bespoke sizes.”
Box sash windows are sometimes also called “Hung Sash” windows or “Sash and Case” windows. All of these names essentially refer to the same thing, i.e. a window with one or more sliding panels or “sashes” which each hold a pane of glass.
Typically each frame contains two sashes which both slide vertically so that you can have an opening at the top or bottom of the frame, or both if desired – this is actually one of the most effective ways of ventilating a room since the top opening allows warm air to escape, and the bottom opening allows cooler air to be drawn in from outside, creating an efficient airflow current.

More about our Box Sash Windows
The “Box” or “Case” which is sometimes referred to is the casing at the sides (and sometimes top) of a sliding sash window frame which would traditionally house lead weights, attached to the opening sashes by cords or chains via pulleys in order to balance the weight of the sash and allow it to be left in any position when opened. With modern frames, other methods of balancing the sashes are often used, such as the spring balances which we use in our sash windows.
These modern balances are constructed from two counter-spiralling springs within a tube, which are arranged in such a way that the overall force exerted by the springs to pull the sash upwards is near-constant for the full range of extension of the spring. This means that the springs effectively “balance” the weight of the opening sash for its full range of movement, as if a counterweight were used, unlike a simple coil spring which would “pull harder” the more it is extended, making it unsuitable for use in sash windows.
The size of casing needed to house the lead weights fitted to traditional box sash windows meant that the windows would usually be fitted into a reveal, i.e. with part of the frame set behind the brickwork of the building. This means that the window would effectively have to intrude into the inside space of a room. Spring balances take up much less space than lead balance weights, and as a result we can now make windows with much narrower frame components, designed to be fitted into a standard brickwork cavity in much the same way as hinged casement windows.
These thinner frames mean that you can maximise the glass area within a given opening size, letting as much light in as possible. Spring balances and their frames are also generally more cost-effective than lead weights and the large timber frames needed to house them, making them very competitive on price – even competitive with softwood and uPVC windows in many cases.
