What is the Single-hung Window?
What does a single hung window look like: the single hung window is a sliding window where a bottom sash of a window moves up to open and allows air to flow in. The top sash is permanently attached. The single hung window screen covers only the open part of the window, so the fixed one is screen-free.
Single hung windows are ideal for rooms with sidewalks, porches, or patios since they open and close without protruding.
Single hung windows are the most common choice for new construction, renovations, and retrofits. Single-hung windows are the simplest basic type of window available, and thus the most cost-effective.
Single Hung Vinyl Windows in Toronto and GTA
Despite being similar to their double-hung counterparts, single-hung vinyl windows do have a few distinct features.
First of all, it’s a single movable sash meaning the top portion of the window is stationary and the bottom portion slides up and down.
Commonly the bottom sash moves up to open and allows for ventilation, while the top sash is fixed, but it can be reversed or have an opening section smaller when a window is too tall to be split in half. There’s no weather stripping around the top sash as it is sealed tight to the frame, which makes small single-hung windows more energy-efficient.
A single-hung window also has a fixed meeting rail, which means the top half of the window is completely rigid and cannot come out of the square, which adds to the overall reliability and strength of this type of window.
