In order to meet the demands of conservation officers, modern Building Regulations and our exacting clients specification, we can supply a comprehensive range of units from traditional leaded lights, utilising handmade kiln distorted glass, to high performance double glazed units, providing excellent thermal values.
Where double glazed leaded glass is required, the outer pane of glass is leaded on both sides and finished with a solder joint and then antiqued, to create an authentic look to your glazing.
Our flexible approach allows us to consider all possibilities when glazing bronze windows, doors and screens. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss any specific requirements you may have.
We have our own in-house glass department which makes the majority of our double glazed units. This department has been operating since 2001 and is equipped with the latest technology in glass cutting and unit making equipment.
We use a reactive hot melt system which is not affected by water, ultraviolet light and heat. Double glazed units include the use of warm edge spacer bars, specialist soft coat glass filled with krypton and argon gas for optimum performance.
For any units made in-house, we do not kitemark stamp safety units for aesthetic reasons, and instead provide alternative evidence of toughening or laminating to meet building control requirements.
Records are kept indefinitely for most glass measurements so replacement units can be supplied without undue delay in the event of a breakage.
We also work with specialists who can create original handmade stained glass units. New ideas can be developed and translated into beautiful works of art in stained glass, giving you the opportunity to create something unique which can be enjoyed and admired for many years to come.
We have also worked for many years with an independent glass artist on more sensitive restoration projects which require compliance with strict conservation obligations. This frequently involves the careful removal of original antique leaded lights from site before being dismantled, cleaned, assessed and restored. His painting skills are outstanding and he has the reputation of being one of the country's leading glass painters.
Projects and buildings range from manor houses and hunting lodges, to churches and universities, restoring unique medieval glass work through to 20th century windows.
