GLASS

We offer a vast selection of decorative and patterned glass options. You can choose from Georgian bars, leaded glass in diamond or square patterns with authentic solder joints. Stained glass is available from a selection of our standard designs or you may wish to have a custom design or indeed match the original windows.

We also offer a wide choice of patterned and obscure glass options, perfect for bathrooms, hallways or side windows. You can mix stained glass with clear to personalise your window as many 1930s properties have, or casement windows with square leading for a Tudor look.

Backing Glass

For privacy, or just pure style, patterned backing glass gives you a whole range of attractive options.

 

Low Emission

We supply a full range of low emission glass with laminated and tempered glass, to provide safety and security where needed. Once an optional extra, low-E glass is now fitted as standard, in compliance with our membership with FENSA (industry Gold Standard for Building Regulations Compliance in replacement windows and doors).

Low-E glass is a fantastic way to reduce energy bills, by providing excellent thermal insulation with U values down to 1.4 W/m2K. It allows high light and solar heat transmittance for the best use of natural lighting and beneficial solar heat gain.

It provides colour neutrality in both reflection and transmission, giving windows a natural appearance, whilst maintaining a pure reflection.

Leaded Glass 

Lead is used to add style, character and authenticity to your windows, using a blackened technique to provide a darkened, aged feel to the structure.

Soldered joints are an optional extra that also gives you a genuine antique look.

Lead is available in 4mm, 6mm, 9mm, and the traditional 12mm widths.

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass is created by sandwiching a thin vinyl layer, typically of Polyvinyl Butyral (PVB), between two pieces of glass using heat and pressure. It is primarily used for its safety, security and sound reduction benefits. Its toughness and resilience makes this type of glass an excellent safety glazing option.

PVB films are able to block 99% of ultraviolet radiation and prevents furnitue and other indoor items from discolouring due to irradiation.

With 6.4mm glass thickness compared to the standard 4mm, laminated glass can also add sound insulation to properties, which may be particularly beneficial when living on busy streets where noise pollution is a problem.

 

Georgian Bars

Integral Georgian Bars

 

Integral bars add great character to your property, yet still retain the ease of cleaning and maintenance to your windows, as the feature bars sit inside the double glazed sealed units.

Available at 18mm or 25mm widths in white, silver aluminium, or any wood grain finish we offer with our PVCu range.

 

Astragal Georgian Bars

Astragal Georgian bars are a new development to the PVCu market, and resonate with traditional Georgian bars on timber windows.

We offer two different bars:

  • Ovolo: Designed with a rounded profile to suit that Ovolo frame

  • Bevelled: Designed to replicate the style of traditional time frames, with a slim, angular bevelled sash bar.

TRIPLE GLAZING

Triple Glazing is the ultimate window choice for customers wanting to save energy, reduce their energy bills, reduce their CO² footprint and enjoy a warmer, more comfortable home.

Why Triple Glazing?

Triple Glazing far exceeds the thermal efficiency of A rated window by over 35%, as well as the sound insulation by over 20%. It does this by incorporating:

  • Industry leading 6 chamber PVCu frames and sashes for optimum insulation.

  • Structural PVCu.  This means no heat conducting steel and no need for thermal inserts.

  • Three panes of glass let the sun’s warmth in, whilst reducing emissions that escape.

  • Argon filled cavities and warm edge spacer bars create greater insulation performance.

 

Triple Glazing far exceeds current Building Regulations on thermal efficiency and is Passivhaus Compliant. Passivhaus (Passive House) is the fastest growing energy performance standard in the world, delivering homes with excellent thermal performance and airtightness.
