When it comes down to selecting sash windows, there'll be several matters to think about, and not just the type of window you need. Today's sash windows are made from a range of different materials, each one having their own pros and cons. The first sash windows were created from hardwood, however these days you can also acquire sash windows in metal (aluminium), plastic and UPVC, though a lot of property owners favour the traditional hardwood ones.
A hung sash window or traditional sash window is made of one or several slidable panels or sashes. Traditionally the individual panels are paned windows, however they can now include an independent piece of glass. The eldest surviving examples of these kinds of windows were installed in England in the latter part of the seventeenth century. The invention of sash windows is usually attributed, without conclusive proof, to Robert Hooke (born 1635). Other individuals claim that the Dutch invented the sash window. The conclusion appears to be that it's impossible to determine the precise person who invented it. Sash windows are often seen in Victorian and Georgian houses, and the classic layout has two panes up by three across on each of the two sash panels, giving a six over six panelled window, though this is under no circumstances a fixed rule of thumb. Lots of late Victorian and Edwardian suburban houses were built using sash window units of around four feet in width.
