What makes our range of traditional sash window so special?

Sash windows are one of the most desired window types for home owners and when you see a house with beautiful sash windows, it’s easy to see why.

Timber sash windows have traditionally been made with vertical "mortice and tennoned" joints for hundreds of years and have that authentic style that you know and love. Our traditional range of sash windows are made the replicate this style perfectly and the grained, textured wood foil gives the perfect finish - in fact when our customers first see the finish they can't believe it’s not real wood. So you get the style and feel of a wooden window frame without any of the maintenance.

How do you replicate wooden sash windows?

A number of different factors will contribute to the energy efficiency of a window. At Three Counties we use Pilkington glass as standard because we know that we are using a trusted product that will improve the efficiency of your home.

As we mentioned, our sliding sash windows are made with grain textured acrylic so you don’t need to have any concern about that shiny white plastic finish. We offer a number of elegant collections for your sliding sash windows including Bygone Melody, Harmony and Symphony, they are all made with beautiful textured wood grain acrylic foil and can be finished in any RAL or Farrow and Ball colour. Our particular sash window colours include antique cream, green or classic black frames with white sashes.

What makes our sash windows so elegant?

Sash windows are created by two sliding sashes each retaining a double-glazed, sealed unit. In most cases, the window will be "split" equally in the height so the visible glass will be the same height in each unit. Aesthetically however, it’s important to have clean vertical lines that run through the upper and lower sashes. You’ll want the bars to align and the Georgian squares to be of equal size.

It’s important your sliding sash windows are all made to correct proportions. Irrespective of which collection you chose, all Bygone sash windows can be designed to ensure sightlines align and panes within the same window are equal if specified.
