Deep Bottom Rail

Traditionally the bottom rail on the lower sash was far deeper than it’s side members, constructed from 4 or 5 inch timbers the lower rail carried most of the sash weight. It is far easier, and cheaper, for manufacturers to weld sashes without this important feature. This simplistic approach destroys the authentic appearance and elegant sight lines of the original authentic sash windows. Vintage windows are uniquely constructed with deep bottom rails as standard to maintain this crucial appearance detail which is so important to retaining the look and value of your home.

Continuous Horns

Horns are the decorative feature found just below the upper sash. The Victorians introduced horns in the 1850’s to prevent the sash weights from damaging window frames as sash windows gained extra weight from thicker and heavier plate glass. Modern window manufacturers mimic this important original feature of authentic sash windows by sticking on, “replica” horns. This is one of the many “artificial” details planners find most objectionable. Vintage sash windows have integrated continuous horns, which are so essential to achieving a truly authentic appearance.
