London Sash Cord Replacement Service
Your existing sash ropes may be many years old. They may look shabby, show signs of decay or they may be covered in paint. Painted ropes become brittle and, like decayed ropes, will eventually snap.
The sash cords we supply are made from waxed cotton and contain a polypropylene core. The wax protects the cotton, allows for self lubrication on the pulley wheel while the nylon core provides inner strength. This type of rope will last for generations and is the type of rope more suited to typical domestic properties with sash windows.
We can supply other types of rope. For example, Pure white double braided Nylon or Red Fleck waxed cotton of 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 top notch condition not only provides added insulation in the winter but also has other advantages in the summer time too!
