Sash Window Fastener Beehive Nickel

Amongst our of window furniture you will find a range of sash fasteners. We have different styles of sash fastener including Arm, Brighton, Fitch and Claw. In this post you can also see some other designs which we can get, including Acorn.
The Arm Sash Fastener is where you have an arm which you move to open and close using a decorative knob. These window fasteners are the most decorative in the range as you can add some detailing to the knob part.

We are often asked the difference between the above two finishes which we offer on some lines of door furniture and window furniture.
It is quite hard in digital photos to show the difference but basically the nickel finish is shiny silver and chrome is a bit whiter in colour and more mirror like.

Iron casement stays

Early casement windows would have had a casement latch and casement stay in black iron, often forged by the local blacksmith. In Victorian times window hardware could also have been cast in brass and in the later 1800’s and early 1900’s plated in nickel. Our ranges are copies of originals and our iron window fittings are hand forged. In this article we also offer an explanation of the terminology used for casement window hardware.
