FAQs

What is the difference between Georgian Bar and Astragal?  

Georgian Bar Insulated Glass Unit are inserted within the double-glazing unit, giving the illusion of divided lights without actual physical division, whereas astragal bars are fixed both inside and outside of the glass panes, physically dividing the glass to create the effect of multiple panes.

Here's a comparison table to outline the differences between Georgian Bar Insulated Glass Unit and Astragal:

Feature

Georgian Bars

Astragal

Primary Function

Decorative

Structural

Location

Within or on the surface of window glass

Attached to doors or sash windows

Purpose

To give the appearance of multiple panes

To cover or close the gap for sealing, security, or decoration

Appearance

Can be internal (between panes of glass) or external.

Usually a single bar or moulding that closes the gap between dual structures

Functionality

Mainly aesthetic, simulating the look of traditional windows

Offers additional security, insulation, and structural integrity

Use in Windows

Commonly used to enhance window aesthetics

Used for practical purposes but can also have a decorative aspect

Material

Often made of materials that provide strength and durability (metal, wood)

What material is used for Georgian Bar IGU?    

Georgian Bar Insulated Glass Unit can be made from a variety of materials, including uPVC, aluminium, wood, or composite materials. The choice of material often depends on the window frame material, aesthetic preferences, and budget.

Do Georgian Bar IGU reduce light?  

Georgian Bar IGU themselves do not significantly reduce the amount of light entering through a window, as they are relatively thin compared to the overall area of the glass. However, they can create shadows or patterns that slightly alter the perception of light within a room.

Can you remove Georgian bars from double glazing?  

Whether Georgian bars can be removed from double glazing depends on their type. External Georgian bars that are glued onto the glass can often be removed, although care must be taken not to damage the glass. Internal Georgian bars, which are integrated within the sealed unit of double-glazing windows, cannot be removed without replacing the entire glass unit.

What is the alternative to the Georgian bar?    

An alternative to Georgian bars for achieving a similar aesthetic is using actual multiple panes of glass separated by real bars, known as true divided lights. Another modern alternative is the simulated divided light, where a single pane of glass is used with both internal and external bars applied to simulate the appearance of true divided lights without their thermal inefficiency.

Are Georgian windows old-fashioned?  

While Georgian windows have a historical origin, dating back to the 18th century, they are not necessarily old-fashioned. Their timeless design continues to be popular in both traditional and modern homes, offering elegance and character that complements a wide range of architectural styles.

How thick is Georgian glass?  

Traditional Georgian glass, being handmade, varied in thickness. However, it was generally thinner than modern glass, often around 2mm to 3mm. Modern replicas of Georgian-style windows use contemporary glass standards, which are typically thicker to meet energy efficiency requirements.

What size are Georgian bar windows? What size are Georgian bars?  

Georgian bar windows don't have a standard size; they are made to fit the specific requirements of the building or homeowner's preferences. The size of Georgian bars themselves usually ranges from 18mm to 25mm in width, but this can vary depending on the manufacturer and the design specifications.

Can you have Georgian bars with triple glazing?  

Yes, you can have Georgian bars with triple glazing. The bars can be integrated within the spaces between the glass panes or applied externally to mimic the appearance of traditional Georgian windows while still benefiting from the enhanced thermal performance of triple glazing.

How do you measure Georgian bar glass?  

To measure Georgian bar glass, you need to measure the total size of the glass pane required, including where the bars will sit. If designing a pattern with Georgian bars, measurements need to specify the placement and spacing of the bars accurately to ensure they fit the window precisely.

Where is the Georgian style most commonly used?  

The Georgian style is most commonly used in residential architecture, particularly in homes that aim for a traditional, elegant aesthetic. It is popular in the UK, the United States (especially in historical areas), and other countries influenced by British architectural history.

What are the characteristics of a Georgian glass?  

Georgian glass typically refers to glass produced during the Georgian era, characterized by its slight imperfections, such as bubbles, streaks, and a wavy surface, due to the manufacturing processes of the time. In terms of windows, the Georgian style often implies the use of small panes held together by bars, reflecting the limitations in glass manufacturing during the period.
