Sashless Double Hung

Sashless windows are a modern alternative to traditional openable windows. Sashless windows are a double hung system that feature two moving panes of counterbalanced glass, without the bulk of a timber or aluminium sash frame surrounding the glass. This provides the best-uninterrupted view in opening window design available today. The windows open at both the top and bottom with one easy motion to provide perfect rotational ventilation.
