There is a great variety of sash window hardware available both in terms of price and quality. We tend towards the top end of the spectrum; poor quality hardware can destroy all the good work done by our joinery teams both from a performance and aesthetic perspective. Hardware is available in Brass, Chrome and Satin Chrome as standard.
- Pulleys are specified according to the weight of the sashes they will be expected to convey and have bearings to assist with smooth running and quiet operation.
- To help raise the sashes, we fit good quality solid sash lifts onto the bottom rails.
- The sashes are secured by heavy duty fasteners with a locking facility.
- To communicate the sash weights to the sashes themselves, we specify hard-wearing waxed sash rope with a nylon core: this resists stretch and fraying and will give many years of good service before replacement becomes necessary.
These items are all included in the price and they represent a full suite of hardware for a perfectly functioning and insurance-compliant window. Having said that sash hardware cannot be substantially modified, it can be upgraded – if you are interested in what is available, click on the ‘Style it your way!’ icon for a feast of delights…
