Double Hung Timber Windows

Whetstone Windows & Doors specializes in period and contemporary style windows and doors. We cater for all styles of homes in Melbourne and greater Victoria.

Double Hung windows are a traditional style of window featured in either period or contemporary style homes. It consists of two sashes that move up and down. The bottom sash slides up and the top sash slides down when opening.

Our Double Hung windows feature compression seals to minimize air leaks, allow for smooth operation and eliminate rattle.

We use a pre-stretched nylon sash cord that won’t break.

We supply Traditional Weight and Cord, or Counter Balance options.

We provide a range of glazing options available to improve the energy efficiency of your Double Hung windows.

Both Timber framed and Aluminium framed fly screens are available to use with Double Hung Windows.

When to use a Double Hung Window

  • When you’re matching existing windows.
  • When a traditional look is important.
  • When airflow and heat extraction is required – When both sashes are opened, hot air is allowed to exit from the top whilst drawing in cold air through the bottom sash.
  • When you don’t want an opened window to protrude outside.
