The glazing can be divided in three distinct ways. Glass dividing bars are firmly connected to the frame, meaning that the glazing is inserted in multiple individual pieces.
Visually very similar is the glued-on variant of this concept.
Being attached to the outside of the pane with high-strength glue, they provide the advantage of allowing for the glass pane to not have to be inserted in multiple pieces.
The third option is the interior element.
These bars are mounted in the space between individual panes of lift-and-slide doors. Because of this, they are fully protected from environmental hazards and do not require special care or maintenance.
Each bar type for wooden sliding doors or windows has its distinct advantages. The selection of the perfect lift-and-slide door is all a matter of taste – unique choices for unique building owners. Choosing bar elements for a door is a decision for quality craftsmanship and aesthetic taste.
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.
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.
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.
