Sash imitation windows.
The reason for our company to search for invention of sash imitation windows is simple. It is not possible for a typical sliding sash window to be fitted with proper and tight rubber seals, it will not give 100% air tightness and noise protection as it is required for passive houses and energy efficient building. That is why Wood&Home comes with designs and ideas to satisfy our clients without changing sash view and style of your property.
We have come up with few solutions that makes windows look like sash but are properly sealed:
– fake sash windows
– mock sash windows
– sash look alike windows
– tilt-slide sash windows
Sash look alike
For this option we design window with ability to tilt and turn bottom sash as the upper sash stays fixed. This model has lots of advantages, perfect solution for passive houses which keep original style of your property.
Fake sash windows
It is the simplest and very stright forward solution for sash imitation windows. The upper section of widnow has thicker framing from outside view only what makes a sash illusion. Internally window is flash and it is opened as tilt and turn. They can be fitted with horns or without it.
Mock sash windows
Mock sash is an attractive alternative to the more traditional vertical sliding sash window. The top hung casement provides ventilation and can also be locked in the night ventilation position. The lower sash can be either fixed or tilt and turn which can be opened inwards for ventilation and easy cleaning.
This type of window is design with high similiarity to original spring sliding sash, although it operates as a tilt window. This design allows for exterior glass and framing to be easily cleaned.
