Features & benefits
Timber sash windows could be of two types, traditional cords and weights or spring balanced. The difference between them is primarily the box size, 100mm in the case of cords and weights, and 60mm when talking about spring balanced. Apart from that there are no differences between those two types of windows. All of them can go with stuck on astragal bars of different sizes to accommodate the requirements. By default sash windows are with cords and weights but occasionally depending on the openings we suggest spring balanced sash windows to facilitate smoother replacement.
