The previous timber windows and doors on this Georgian style property were double glazed with much chunkier sections and thicker glazing bars – and our client wanted a more elegant solution while retaining the benefits of double glazing.
The traditional ‘6 over 6’ sash windows and the Georgian style French doors are made with our slimline double glazing, which looks just like single glazing, and glazed in the traditional way with individual double glazed units fixed in place in solid glazing bars. Our slim double glazing, with a gap of just 6mm in these windows, uses particularly dense gas to ensure the same level of insulation as regular double glazing, without compromising the traditional period look of the property.
The outer pane of the double glazing on the windows and doors is also made with acoustic glass, which further improves sound insulation without impacting the look of the windows and doors.
At the front of the property above the front door is a large Gothic style fixed casement window, which also features our slimline double glazing and glazed in the traditional way with individual units. Gothic Revival architecture was a feature of both the Georgian and Victorian eras, starting to emerge in the 1740s and became more popular from the 1820s. It is typified by arched windows with delicate arched glazing bars as can be seen in this example.
The property also boasts traditional French doors in a range of styles, including a set of doors with side panels with matching glazing bars, and six sets of French doors with elegant curved fanlights (right).
All the windows and doors on the property are made with Accoya timber, which is our first choice of timber due to its exceptional durability and stability whatever the weather, and are fully draught-proofed.
