Brief history of sash windows
Sash windows comprise one or two movable panels, which generally move on a system of pulleys and weights.They are most commonly found in Georgian and Victorian houses. Early sash windows had small panes of glass and thick dividing glazing bars. Improving glass making techniques enabled window manufacturers to increase the size of panes as glazing bars became thinner. Hence, natural light could flood more easily into rooms at a time when people relied on candlelight to see what they were doing.
