About Us

We’ve been operating a family run business, making windows for satisfied customers, for more than 30 years now. A lot has changed since then, but our mission hasn’t. We believe that good work speaks for itself. That’s why we always aim for the highest quality in our products and in our level of dedicated service. That’s why more than 85% of our business comes from repeat customers or word of mouth. And that’s just how we like it.

Sash Windows and Beyond

It’s in our name, it’s our flagship product and it’s what we’re known for. But it’s not all we do. Have a look at our main products listed below, or get in touch to discuss any project you’ve got planned.

Sash Windows

The ’50-Year Window’ is our premium option. With longevity and performance being the key factors, we combine traditional joinery methods with high performance double-glazing, draught sealing and the finest quality low maintenance micro-porous paint system, ensuring optimum durability.

Casement Windows

Years of customer collaboration and advances in technology have helped us develop our bespoke 50-Year casement window into one of the highest performing on the market. While we wanted to make our windows thermally efficient, we also wanted to stay true to the heritage of the casement window.

French Doors

Our French doors have been designed to exceed industry standards in performance, insulation, security and finish whilst maintaining their original features. The range is fully bespoke and can be customised to suit your requirements, with the option of different moulding and glazing bar configuration.


Strength, Durability & Quality

We set out to produce quality windows look good, feel good and last. And after years of development and research, we’ve got the perfect formula and we’re happy to present to you the result of our work – the premium 50-year window.

Materials

We make 95% of our casement and sash windows using premium Accoya wood. Accoya is an advanced form of timber, modified through a process called acetylation that massively increases its overall strength and durability, matching and even exceeding top-end tropical hard woods. Accoya is created from high quality, sustainably sourced wood.

Design & Finish

Materials are hugely important, but they’re nothing if you don’t use them properly. We’ve been honing our craft ever since we started all those years ago, and our dedication and attention to detail shows in our products. Whether it’s the traditional joints and details or the premium latches and locks, every bit of every one of our windows is carefully considered and adds to their aesthetic and functional quality. We finish our windows using Teknos microporous paint systems; this means long lasting low-maintenance coats.

We have completed hundreds of projects in the following areas; Wimbledon, Raynes Park, Putney, Clapham, Fulham, Kingston, Richmond, Twickenham, Dulwich, Wandsworth, Kensington, Chiswick, Esher, Hampton Court, Surbiton, Guildford.

TIMBER – ACCOYA® WOOD

Timber – Accoya® Wood

Because our customers want their windows to last we have always used the highest quality wood available. Now 95% of all our sash windows are made from the best wood available on the market – Accoya® wood. Accoya® wood is the result of more than 80 years of research and development that brought together a long established and extensively proven wood modification technique – acetylation – and leading-edge proprietary technology to create a high performance wood.

Accoya® wood is the leading high-technology wood. Created from sustainably sourced wood, Accoya® matches or exceeds the properties of the very best tropical hardwoods. See above for some of its performance benefits.

Glass & Glazing

Here at London Box Sash Windows we feel the glass that’s used in our sash windows has one of the most important roles of all, as most of our customers want to improve their quality of life and reduce energy costs by improving thermal performance. That’s why we glaze our premium sash windows to ‘A’ rated specifications, exceeding the latest building regulation requirements.

The windows are glazed with 24mm double-glazed units, comprising of low ‘E’ glass, argon filled ‘Swisspacer’ bar and Pilkington Optiwhite extra clear, low iron glass, which provides an indicative centre pane U-Value of 1.2 W/m2K.

To protect and prolong the life of our double-glazed units we have designed a unique drained and vented rebate glazing system to prevent premature failure of glazing unit seals by allowing any trapped moisture to drain through small, concealed drainage holes. This has allowed us to double our guarantee against premature failure.

Our sash window range can also incorporate a variety of other glass options to suit specific requirements:

  • Toughened glass or laminated glass.
  • Acoustic glass – Double-glazed units can incorporate acoustic insulating 6.8mm laminated glass (35db Rw). This product combines two sheets of clear glass bonded together with a totally transparent interlayer. The interlayer absorbs sound and reduces the level transmitted through the glass, helping to keep noise in or out.
  • Obscured or textured glass.
  • Stained glass

Finishing

London Box Sash Windows Teknos Low Maintenance Microporous Paint Systems

One of our customers’ biggest concerns is having to paint their windows every couple of years. To minimise this requirement we spray finish all our Accoya® sash windows with the finest Teknos low-maintenance microporous paint systems, coupled with end grain sealing and highly-skilled spray application, giving us an unrivalled, long-lasting paint finish. Because our premium sash window range is made using Accoya® exclusively, maintenance cycles are greatly extended and on redecoration only require one topcoat.

We can also colour match to Dulux, Farrow & Ball, Crown or RAL.

Draught Proofing

Our premium sash window range comes fully draught sealed. They have a perimeter brush pile polypropylene stripping, discreetly contained within concealed carriers installed to all staff and parting bead, maximising thermal and sound efficiency.
