We’ve all heard of sash windows, but what are sash window weights? Sash window weights are used as a balancing mechanism to counteract the weight of a sliding window and hold that window open at the desired height.
A sash window consists of one or more moveable panels, known as “sashes”, which form a frame that holds panes of glass. These windows are opened by sliding the glazed panels horizontally or vertically and are often seen in traditional Georgian and Victorian houses, although they are becoming popular in modern homebuilding.
