The Surprising Benefits of Sliding Sash Windows

Sliding sash windows have been a popular choice for homeowners for centuries and they are known for a unique, timeless look that adds character to any home. But, did you know that sliding sash windows also come with a range of practical benefits? 

We at Genesis have been providing quality windows and revolutionising traditional window designs within the UK. That’s why we are here to share some of our expert knowledge about Sliding Sash windows, as we explore the benefits of sliding sash windows, the features of Genesis Collections’ range of sliding sash windows, and how to maintain your windows to keep them for years to come.

What are Sliding Sash Windows

Sliding sash windows were first used in the 17th century and were popular in Victorian homes due to the ability to slide open the top and bottom of the window to allow for ventilation.

Today, they remain a popular choice for homeowners, due to the variety of designs and styles available. Single-glazed Victorian-era windows provide an authentic alternative for your home. 

Sliding Sash Windows have now been updated and modernised with a variety of Double and even Triple glazing options. Also, if you decide to purchase your sliding sash windows from Genesis, we also provide energy-efficient glass, to keep your home warm all year long. 

Benefits of Sliding Sash Windows

Sliding sash windows offer a range of benefits that make them a great choice for any home. Let’s take a look at some of the key benefits that sliding sash windows can bring to your home: 

  • Energy Efficiency: Sliding sash windows are very energy efficient. They are designed to keep warm air in and cold air out, making them a great choice for keeping your home warm.

  • Noise Reduction: The design of sliding sash windows helps to reduce noise levels. The windows are designed to fit tightly in the frame, which helps to block out outdoor noise. You can also add acoustic laminated glass for improved noise reduction performance. 

  • Improved Security: Sliding sash windows are very secure. They have a locking mechanism that prevents the window from being opened from the outside. This makes them a great choice for homes in high-crime areas.

  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Sliding sash windows are a timeless choice and can add character to any home. They come in a range of designs and styles, so you can customise the perfect window to complement the look of your home.

  • Improved Ventilation: The sliding sash window design allows you to open the top and bottom of the Sash window, which allows for increased ventilation. This is great for those hot days when you want to let in some fresh air.
