On this old manor house one of the main issues was the use of Georgian bars, as modern bars carrying sealed units are usually 40mm wide which has not been acceptable to many authorities over the past few years. One alternative is stick on ‘astracal bars’ again frowned on by the conservation department.
At Heritage we have been confronted with this problem many times and therefore now have a 22mm Georgian bar that matches original single glazed windows. Our ‘super slim’ bars are able to be glazed using a specially made sealed unit compliant with part ‘L’ of building regulations. We can now achieve the authentic classic look of a Georgian bar without compromise to either looks nor efficiency.
