Windows history blog

If you're interested in the history of sash windows, glass and timber that is used to make wooden windows, then you'll love our wooden window history blog section. Here, we share stories about the origins of these materials used to make windows and how they've been used throughout history by different countries and here in the UK. For example, did you know that glass was first used over 4,000 years ago? Or that the ancient Egyptians used timber to build their pyramids? We also explore the more recent history, such as the development of vacuum double-glazing and tempered glass. So whether you're a history lover or just curious about where these materials come from that are now used in modern windows, be sure to check out our articles below.
