sash

sash. Rebated frame, fixed or opening, fitted with one or more panes of glass forming a window-light, set in a larger frame placed in the whole window-opening or aperture. Opening sashes can be of the vertical or horizontal sliding type in grooves, or can be hinged or pivoted at the sides, tops, bottoms, or centres. Thus casements have sashes. A sash capable of being moved up and down is a hung sash, suspended from cords or chains and pulleys fixed in the linings of the sash-frame, and counterbalanced by weights attached to the concealed ends of the cords or chains within the sash-box of the main window-frame. If only one sash moves, the window is said to be a single-hung sash-window, and if both sashes can be moved, it is double-hung. Yorkshire sliding-sashes are moved horizontally.
