Originally sash horns were built into the window to act as “stops” to prevent sashes being over-extended, smashing the pulley wheels or damaging the lead weights inside the box framework.
Today sash horns are purely decorative as there are other types of “stops” now in use, however, they are still needed to fully replicate and retain the traditional appearance of your box sash windows.
Unlike decorative, “clip on” horns which can become detached, look artificial, and have a tendency to fade, all sash horns are sculptured from the sash itself. Commonly known as “run-through” or “continuous” horns”, these are fitted with flush fitting end caps to close the chambers.
