All types of glazing bars are a stylish decorative addition for windows. You can install them in various ways. Real glazing bar windows (with the continuous glass-splitting variant) seem more authentic but come at a higher price. Decorative ones that are mounted on top or between the glass panes are available at a more reasonable price. The most popular types are one-sided or both-sided (with or without a mounted spacer bar) variants. There are also variants where the bars are either removable or placed in between the glazed panes. And there´s glazing bar frames that are mounted on the window, too.
Glazing bar windows add a classic touch to old homes and historic buildings. But they also add a certain something to the appearance of a new building – without making it look like a period piece. There are glazing bars for windows and doors in various colours, shapes, and variants that add to the window design of renovated farmers´ houses, modern office buildings, or chic city flats alike.
You can easily retrofit them to your uPVC, aluminium, or timber windows and doors with windows24.com, too and you won’t have to replace the whole thing entirely.
Basically: Aluminium, uPVC, timber, and composite sash windows with bars that split the glass panes cost more than those without. Switching to other bar options usually decreases the price. And you´ll also have a good-looking window without needing to buy a new one.
Georgian, Astragal bars and other types are available at windows24.com, made of timber, aluminium and uPVC. Wooden ones are perfect for country-style homes. For doors and sash windows in a loft, materials like aluminium or uPVC are ideal because they create a modern stylish look. Also, Georgian or Astragal bars give large glazed surfaces a unique structure.
Keep in mind that installation varies with the different types of muntins. Decorative ones are easily glued on. But solidly installed windows with Astragals or Georgian bars and multiple panes of glass should always be installed by a professional in your area.
