Timber sash windows
The design of our vertical sliding sash window is the product of an extensive collaboration between the technicians of Enfield Windows Company and the manufacturers.
Our Timber Sash Windows are created and designed to reproduce, the timeless look of English sash windows which were progressively developed from early use by the architect Christopher Wren, through to their most elegant peak in the Georgian and Edwardian periods.
Thanks to modern design and construction techniques, the dimensions of sash frames, meeting rails and glazing bars have been reduced to a more slime line profile, with traditional mouldings subtly modified to suit modern construction technology.
To accommodate the extra weight of today’s modern double-glazed units, the sliding sashes are hung on traditional sash cords; this means that the frame retains a long proven reliability of the simple counterbalance weights and in the long term significantly means less maintenance.
The Quadruple draught strips stop rattles, and extremely high insulation (1.1W/m2K) glazing units minimise heat loss and down draughts are reduced to a minimal, the Multi-layered engineered timber and very careful attention to detail minimise the swelling and warping that can cause jamming on windows produced solely using one piece of timber, also during wet weather the risk of swelling is minimised. In short the hardwood frames we supply are built to last and stringently tested to all weather conditions
