At the Sash Window Workshop we make all of our products by hand in our Bracknell workshop because of this our customers often have to wait just a little bit longer to have their beautiful timber sash and casement windows and doors installed. We understand how busy our customers lives are and therefore offer them installation dates up to two months in advance.

Our trademark installation and service vans leave the workshop in Bracknell with customer’s windows every morning at around 6.30 so that our installers can be on hand in customers’ properties between 8 and 9, so long as the traffic allows.

All of our installers wear the company uniform and carry ID cards.

The Sash Window Workshop has been manufacturing the highest quality traditional timber windows since 1994 combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technology to produce a full range of A rated windows and doors. Our windows and doors are made to the highest standards with the best materials in all respects, and come fitted by our own employees. Our customers are delighted by the difference that our window services make to their homes.

As part of our continuous drive to be a cleaner and more environmentally sensitive company, as from January 1st 2012 The Sash Window Workshop will no longer be using any oil based paints in it products and services.

The Sash Window Workshop has recently introduced a new and exciting ‘Classic’ range. It follows the traditional style of windows and doors that you love; however, it is manufactured using the latest technology to improve the quality of the windows and doors as well as improvements in terms of security, heating and noise pollution.

We are proud to announce that The Sash Window Workshop has now passed EN 1279 Part 3, and is 100% compliant with which the European standard for manufacturing of double glazed units.

Part 3 is a particularly tough standard to meet. Furthermore we have also completed air leakage and U value simulations for our traditional casement and sliding sash windows. We are working towards compliance with the requirements set out for the proposed new Part L legislation, which comes into force in October 2010.

This is no mean feat. To make traditional windows in period properties that meet the new standards, while maintaining a “traditional” look is very difficult. We would like to congratulate our team for all their hard work to date and we will update you soon with more developments.
