Glazing Bars for Your Composite Sliding Door

No matter if for a front, patio or balcony entrance – doors and windows are nowadays not only selected for pragmatic reasons as style and design have become selection criteria as well. For those who think that a simple broad glass front might appear too boring, there is a large choice of composite sliding systems with glazing bars that will give the balcony or patio door a completely new look.

These vertical or horizontal bracers provide additional stability to any frame with an infill element. They were necessary at a time when it was not possible to produce window glazing in adequate sizes.

Instead, big surfaces were divided into smaller elements.

This solution to the problem was especially popular during the art noveau period. The bars can be differentiated the following ways:

  • dividing
  • interior
  • Vienna

The glass dividing – or "true" – bar is the most complicated to manufacture and therefore tends to be the most expensive type for composite sliding doors. In this variation, individual glasses are indeed separated from each other, the latter two variants are focussed more on decorative effect.

The Vienna type consists of a combination of spacer elements in the space between the panes and a glued-on dummy bar. The interior variant, on the other hand, consists of powder coated aluminium inside the space between the glazing panes of a window or door. windows24.com can equip your composite sliding door with bars according to your individual wishes.

Modern wood and aluminium windows with glazing bars are particularly chic and also have a touch of rural nostalgia. Here at windows24.com, we offer our customers three different versions and types of glazing bars, the structural details of which can be found next to the respective illustration. A distinction is made in the versions between "real", glass-dividing glazing bars, visually authentic Viennese glazing bars and simple aluminium glazing bars, which are located between the glass panes and create a particularly discreet, modern and elegant impression.

Glazing bars

Glazing bars -are also called a 'real' bars because they bear the load of the glass and each area separated by the bar is individually equipped with an insulating glass pane. This allows flexible positioning as well as creativity in terms of colour and structure. The continuous glazing bar is more expensive than the other types of glazing bars, but it is also provides greater break-in protection. Although it is a traditional bar, it is still state-of-the-art in terms of its tightness.

Viennese glazing bar

The Viennese glazing bar, the so-called "fake" glazing bar, is used for aesthetic and visual purposes, as it only rests on the pane and has no effect on the window's insulating characteristics. This type of bar can be attached on one or both sides, giving the impression of real glazing bar insulating glass. In the event of damage, the Viennese glazing bar can be easily replaced and, in contrast to a glass-dividing bar, can also be made thin, if you so desire.

Helima glazing bar

The Helima glazing bar is also considered a "fake" glazing bar because it is only used in the space between the panes. The powder-coated aluminium glazing bar is installed inside double or triple-glazed windows and eliminates the need for extensive maintenance or even replacement. Helima glazing bars are easy to manufacture and, because they are on the inside, they allow you to easily clean the window. Below you will find an overview of the different decorative films and colours in which they can be ordered.
