Georgian Sash Window

Sash windows usually have two vertical sliding frames. The window opens by sliding one over the other. A traditional sash window usually consists of multiple small panes that are separated by glazing bars. Sash windows are usually found in Georgian style homes. These types of windows have either a weighted or spring-loaded balance system to facilitate opening and closing. They are customizable with sash horns and different glazing bar profiles.

Fixed Windows

Fixed windows can not be opened. They are great for letting in natural light to brighten up a room. Fixed windows are also known as picture windows as they are used to frame a nice view. Fixed windows are one of the most energy-efficient windows as they are unable to be opened this makes them draught proof.
