What is the sash? We get that question a lot. Since it’s our primary product line, we should probably go into more detail. In simple terms, the window sash is what you open and close. For instance, a casement window sash opens vertically from the side like a door does using a crank mechanism of some sort.
More specifically, the parts of the sash would be:
- The wood frame around the glass. The vertical sides are called stiles. The horizontal top and bottom are called the rails.
- The glass. Double pane glass is an encapsulated unit installed into the sash frame and can be removed and replaced separately from the frame in the event of seal failure which causes a foggy appearance.
We offer multiple versions of window sash products based on your needs.
- Our replica wood sash are for painted wood window sash only. Use this product when you have a painted window sash with both foggy glass and rotting wood.
- Our Quiksash line is Fenster’s answer to obsolete clad/wood windows and hail damage. A Quiksash replica is a re-engineered version of the original window sash using components available to us. While some subtle differences in appearance may be noticeable, we guarantee the same fit and function as the original.
