In terms of selecting sash windows, there'll be various details to think about, and not only the design of window that you need. Sash windows are manufactured from several different materials, each one having their own advantages and disadvantages. The initial sash windows were constructed with timber, but nowadays you can also buy sash windows in plastic, uPVC and metal, although a lot of folks favour the traditional wooden ones.
A sash window comprises one or several slidable sashes or panels. The individual sashes are traditionally paned windows, but can now contain an individual piece of glass. The longest surviving examples of such windows date from England in the late 1600's. The actual invention of the sash window is often attributed, without real proof, to the Englishman Robert Hooke (1635-1703). Other people state that the sash window was actually invented in Holland. The final conclusion seems to be that it's pretty much impossible to pinpoint the precise person who invented it. The sash window is often observed in Victorian and Georgian properties, and the typical layout has 2 panes up by 3 across on each of the two sash panels, resulting in a six over six panel window, however this isn't a set rule. Millions of late Victorian and Edwardian suburban houses were built in England using sash windows of approximately 1.2m in width.
