Sash Window Lifts
Investing in good-quality sash window lifts can secure the longevity of your sliding sash windows. Available in Victorian, Georgian and Edwardian styles, sliding sash windows enhance the beauty of period homes.
The sash is the part of a window that holds the glass and the framework around it, in place. A sash window or hung sash window is made of one or more movable panels or sashes.
With over 40 years of experience in the building and restorations business, our online store in Australia has one of the most comprehensive lines of window hardware, including fittings for casement windows, double-hung, or sash windows.
Sash window is also known as the box sash window in some regions, though the latter is a little heavier than modern sash windows.
Sash window lifts or double-hung window lifts are the small hooks — installed at the bottom of a sash window — holding which a user can lift the window open.
An advantage of installing double-hung windows is that they provide efficient cooling of interiors during warm weather. Opening both the top and bottom of a sash window allows warm air at the top of the room to escape, thus drawing relatively cool air from outside into the room.
Available in modern as well as traditional designs, our sash window lifts are available in various materials and finishes such as antique brass, antique copper, black, chrome, polished brass, polished nickel, rumbled nickel, satin brass, satin chrome, satin nickel and stainless steel.
Since sash window lifts bear the entire weight of the glass panes while we lift them up or down, we must use premium products only that will endure the test of daily use. Our sash window lifts come with face fix screws for easy installation.
Can sash windows be double glazed?
Unlike single-glazed windows, double-glazed sash windows consist of two panes of glass that trap a layer of air or gas, creating a natural insulator. They are an ideal energy efficient choice with the added benefit of minimising noise.
Double glazed windows are a modern alternative to older sash windows with single glazing or secondary glazing. They are becoming a popular choice for period property refurbishment projects.
If the frames of your existing timber sash windows are in good condition and are wide enough to accommodate a double-glazed unit, you can easily install new sashes into existing window frames. Instead of replacing the entire window frame, double glazing your old timber windows can be a cheaper alternative.
We also manufacture a range of additional accessories that you might require for the maintenance of your sash windows. Starting from a sash drop that is still found in some ancient-styled sash windows to the modern-day sash weights and sash pulleys that facilitate an easy opening and closing of a sash window — you will find several sash window accessories that are crucial to the functioning of a sash window.
A fitch or sash window fastener is the rotating lock that fastens the top and bottom windows of a double-hung sash window together. Our sash window fasteners come in unique shapes and sizes. These fasteners are available in every finish you can think of.
At Restoration Online, we also deal with window bolts that allow the window to be bolted in any fixed position (opened or closed).
If you are looking for wedge fasteners and spur catches to latch an awning widow, we supply them too. Our awning window hardware range offers hopper catches and quadrant stays that are functional in both hopper and awning-styled windows.
Casement windows are considered to be one of the most secure windows because of its opening style. They seal tighter and it is quite difficult to open them from outside. At Restoration Online, we have the best selection of casement window stays for your home. These high-quality window stays allow casement windows to be opened and closed with ease. Variants like monkey tail stays, sill mount window stays, telescopic window stays and side mount casement stays are also in stock.
Casement window fasteners help to lock the window in a closed position. These fasteners or casement handles are available in popular finishes and a range of different styles and functions.
A transom window, also known as a fanlight window, is the small window above a door. While some of these windows are fixed, some other kinds can be opened to allow airflow into the house. Our collection of fanlight & transom window hardware helps to latch and operate these windows effectively.
