What are Sash Windows?
A Sash Window is made up of one or two moveable panels, or “sashes” that open vertically, although sometimes they will slide horizontally instead. A Sash window can either be single-hung where only one sash can be moved or double-hung where both sashes are operational when shut the top and bottom sash will be locked together at the mid-rail to stop them sliding. The Single-hung is a popular choice across the UK, particularly in London.
