The styles might be timeless, but the latest sash windows and French doors embrace the very best of modern tech for heat retention and sound dampening.

PROMOTED FEATURE

Some people demand a certain style of window for their home, and sash windows have never fallen out of favour in design terms.

However, Core Sash Windows is a company that is elevating this classical look for the 21st century with modern innovations…

The allure of sash windows

Sash windows first became popular during the Georgian Period, and it’s a testament to the simple genius of their design that they’re still a popular look some 300 years later. They’re a familiar sight in London, especially in houses built during the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

Yet those windows, as gorgeous as they looked, suffered from the limitations of the time. Draughty, noisy and single-glazed, they were no match for the modern world.

Updating a classic

Luckily, Core Sash Windows is able to install, update or replace them with ones that match the classic look down to a tee but with all the benefits you’d expect of modern glazing. The attention to the small but important things – traditional glass patterns, detailing, narrow profile – is combined with the very latest glazing techniques.

Expect sash and casement windows that are brilliant at keeping the noise of the outside world at bay while granting the privacy you’d expect. U-values, the measure of thermal transmittance, are low too, a sign of great heat retention. On triple glazed units this is as low as 0.74 w/m2k, which will make a marked difference to energy bills.

 

Style without sacrifice

Core takes the same approach across its whole range. Whether it’s modern bi-fold doors, ever-popular French doors or sash windows, you’ll find an elegant marriage of design, function and high-quality components.

The use of engineered timber means you can say goodbye to the bowing and warping that solid timber can be prone to – it’s demonstrably stronger and the manufacturing process creates less waste too, further boosting your home’s environmental credentials.

If timber isn’t for you, Core also supplies and fits a superb range of aluminium doors and aluminium casement windows. Again, aesthetics go hand-in-hand with security and performance, with the latest locks blending seamlessly with period style.
