The Sash Cord Repairs we supply are made from waxed cotton and contain a polypropylene core, the wax protects the cotton, allowing for self lubrication on the pulley wheel, while the nylon core provides inner strength. This type of rope will last for generations and is more suited to typical domestic properties with sash windows.
Our company can supply other types of rope, for example, pure white double braided Nylon or Red Fleck waxed cotton, this is the type often seen in historic properties.
However, to ensure that the ropes continue to look smart and function properly it is still important to keep them free of paint, (ask your decorator to apply Vaseline to the ropes prior to painting!).
Having your sash windows renovated, draught proofed and kept in the very best condition not only provides added insulation in the winter, but also has other advantages in the summer time too!
If your windows appear to have good sash cords attached but do not stay open, your windows may need re-balancing, please visit our sash window renovation page for more information.
