Vertical Sliding Sash Windows With Character
A sash window has one or more moveable panels or ‘sashes’ forming a frame to hold panes of glass, often separated from other panes by glazing bars. Almost all have glazed panels opened by horizontal (or vertical) sliding.
It’s a style of window that’s been around since towards the end of the seventeenth century, and is often found in Victorian, Edwardian or Georgian properties.
One classic design is to have three panes across and two up on each of two sashes, to create what’s known as a six over six panel window.
Modern solutions for sliding sash models mean you can enjoy considerable comfort alongside an elegant appearance – there’s no compromise and no need to choose between the two.
Benefits of Sliding Sash Windows
Choose sliding sash solutions for your double glazed windows in Oxford and elsewhere and you can look forward to a number of benefits, including:
- Easy incorporation of a number of state-of-the-art safety and security features.
- An end to unwanted draughts or cold spots – and of course, you can open your windows to let in a cooling breeze when it’s hot.
- Long-lasting versatility & functionality: These solutions can suit anything from a period property to a stylish modern flat and offer a smooth, dependable operation for years if not decades.
So it’s hardly surprising that sash windows are often the most requested alternative to casement models.
Get a distinctive, eye-catching look for your home with our vertical sliding sash windows, whatever your property type, finished with a completely natural look.
Our solutions mirror the classic elegance of the Georgian age, while giving you the benefits of low-maintenance, high-performing uPVC.
They come with two sliding sashes, decorative horns and sculpted ovolo frames. As an optional extra, choose sculpted Georgian bars and other fixings to subtly enhance character.
You will also enjoy:
- Outstanding built-in thermal efficiency thanks to the multi-chambered uPVC profile and triple brush seals around the opening for impeccable draught-proofing. Meanwhile uPVC thermal inserts can be used to boost your windows’ energy efficiency to an A-rating. Remember that around a fifth of the heat leaving the typical British house escapes through the windows. Our solutions help keep bills low and comfort levels high.
- No-nonsense cleaning & maintenance: These models have an innovative design to make cleaning and maintenance a doddle. Upper and lower sashes tilt inwards, giving access from inside, increasing safety above ground level. What’s more, uPVC needs no painting or treating anyway. A quick wipe down is all you need to keep frames looking as they did the day they were fitted.
- Fire safety: These windows comply with the Building Regulations Part B (fire safety) ‘means of escape’ requirements in terms of creating enough room for a safe escape to be made in the event of a fire.
- Tailor-made: Every window in our sliding sash range is tailored to suit your home, no one else’s! Sizes are available from up to 1.6m wide and 2.4m high. With our range of colours and woodgrain finishes, you’re bound to find a look that sets your property off to perfection. In all, there are seven colours from which to take your pick.
- Faultless fitting: Our solutions and manufactured and installed to a very high standard, for a faultless finish, time after time.
- ‘A’ rated for sustainability: uPVC is reusable and recyclable over hundreds of years, making this material the eco-friendly choice.

Dear Paul Just a little note to say that I am very pleased with my new windows. Many thanks to Dave for his excellent work. I wish you both every success in the future. Very best regards A. Richards
Dear Paul We are very pleased with the job that has been done and couldn't believe how quickly they were fitted. We would have no hesitation to recommend you to anybody in the future. Thanks again.
Dear Mr. Johnson, Now that our windows have been fitted, I just wanted to write you a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with the job. From the very first contact onward, all members of your team have been courteous and efficient. It can be a daunting process taking a number from the Yellow Pages but, in this instance, it paid off! Apart from the fact that the windows look very smart and completely change the feel of the rooms, the neatness of the work was very impressive. All in all it has been a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to receiving my certificate of insurance in due course. Many Thanks
Dear Mr Johnson I am very pleased with my new windows and doors and John and Martin who installed them did an excellent job and were extremely helpful. Your company was recommended to me by two different people and I shall certainly recommend yourselves to anyone else.
Dear Paul, We are absolutely delighted with the finished results and have already had some approving comments. Roger and the team were very efficient and tidy, so pass on our gratitude.
Windows look great! Fantastic job. The guys that did the fitting were brilliant. Very polite, on time and kindly managed to do the lounge window in the first day so we could put back our Christmas tree!
Many thanks to you and the fitters for the expert fitting - I am very happy with the new door!
I have to say if everyone who has worked on this project was as easy to deal with as yourselves and provided the same standard of product and service, it would be so much easier. Everyone who has seen the doors and windows has been very complimentary and I’d gladly recommend you to anyone in need of same. Likewise I’d be happy to act as a site reference should someone in the area contact you.
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for the entire team of people that we have dealt with at Paradise Windows, you have made this a very easy process, much easier and less daunting than I thought it would be. We are both really happy with the window and fitting quality and the whole service that we received, if only every company would be like this it would make life so much easier!
"I had a replacement conservatory last week and am so very pleased with both the product, and the workmanship. It was finished off beautifully, feels very strong and well built. I was pleased with the advice given prior to ordering , the pricing, which was very good for the quality, and the general sale and completion. I highly recommend this company. Thank you so much"
Thank you, I am delighted with my new door, especially the window in it that lets beautiful lights into the hall.
