Aluminium double hung windows feature two sashes which move up and down. When both sashes are closed, they are positioned one above the other, and when the window is opened the sashes overlap, creating an opening at the top and bottom. Double hung windows usually feature hidden cords or counterweights which hold the sashes in place and prevent the windows from opening or closing on their own. Due to their nature, aluminium double hung windows can open to a maximum of 50% of of the total window size, however give the advantage of promoting airflow, by allowing hot air to escape via the top gap while cold air enters via the bottom.
