Sash Windows

Sash windows work on a pulley system, balanced by weights on sash cords. They open by sliding up or down, although some types open by sliding from side to side.

This is a style that dates from the Georgian and Victorian periods

Sash windows may be double hung, meaning you can open both top and bottom windows to improve ventilation, or single hung where only one sash opens.
