Sash windows

Beautiful Georgian sash windows

The Georgian period was extremely long. It began in 1714 and ended in 1820, with the beginning of the Regency period. This means there are many stylistic differences in the period itself:

  • 1714 to about 1760 Palladian style
  • 1760 – 1790 Neoclassical style
  • 1790 beginning of Regency

All these styles are characterized in all instances by elegance, proportion and symmetry. Georgian sash windows from the Georgian era usually have the classical arrangement of three panes across by two up on each of two sashes, giving six over six panel Georgian Style Sash Windows. The upper and lower sashes slide vertically in separate grooves, counterbalanced by Sash weights on Pulleys & Cords. Later, as the Georgian Sash window manufacturing process progressed, the Sash weights have been replaced by Springs (Spiral balances). Hence, for the enthusiasts of traditional Sash window appearance and Sash window operations the traditional Box Sash Windows balanced with Weights & Cords are still being manufactured until today.
