Visual Appeal for all Property Types

Sash windows hold immense visual appeal for both heritage or period homes and modern properties. Georgian bars can be added to the windows for a more traditional look, and this can be paired with a timber imitation frame to continue the classic feel. The glass panes within our sliding sash windows are also fitted within the frame itself, for maximum window space and a clearer outside view. Our sliding sash windows also work on a vertical operating system, allowing you to slide the window open for a large amount of open space, great for natural light and an aesthetic look.

Thermal and Energy Efficient

Sliding sash windows are popular due to their energy and thermal efficiency. They are fitted with uPVC frames to avoid the rotting or warping that you may experience with timber frames, which can later lead to draughts in the home. Our sliding sash windows are also fitted with your choice of double or triple glazing, which is excellent for trapping warm air inside and stopping cold air from entering. This will have a long term effect on your energy bills, and with triple or double glazing, you can also reduce the amount of noise pollution entering and exiting your home.

Hardwearing in Adverse Weather

Sash windows are great for protecting your property from adverse weather conditions. The  Coral Windows Sliding Sash windows, made from uPVC, will not be affected by rain or water damage the way traditional wooden frames would be, and are made to be secure against strong winds. The uPVC frame for these windows will also protect the inner workings and elements of the windows, to avoid rusting through moisture getting into the frame. Coral Windows windows are produced to the highest standards, and are rigorously tested against all types of weather to ensure the windows you are fitted with are top quality.

Security Aware

Sash windows come with bolt locking mechanisms, secure hinges, and night vents to keep your home safe in the summer if you want to leave the window open overnight. Our sliding sash windows are also fitted with internal beading to assist in keeping your house as secure as possible. 

As important as it is for your home to be secure from outside intruders, we also want to ensure that your family is safe when using the windows. Our sliding sash windows are fitted with smart finger traps and springs, to avoid your or your child’s fingers being trapped when using the windows.
