Perfectly balancing form and function, vertical sliding sashes are a popular option in both domestic and commercial properties of almost all architectural styles. Unlike outward-opening windows, one pane simply slides up over the other when you want to let some air in. This ease of use complements other sought-after characteristics, such as their impressive thermal efficiency when fitted out with quality double glazing.

While sash windows – usually made of timber – were most often spied in heritage homes throughout Kent, you now spot them everywhere.

The chambered design of uPVC sliding sash windows also means they’re great at locking in heat and keeping chilly temperatures at bay. Replacing old, inefficient windows with this modern option can lead to significant savings on energy bills. It can also help shore up potential vulnerabilities when it comes to home security.
