In the past, the Georgian appearance of small panes was achieved with bars, set inside the sealed unit or, alternatively, stuck to the glass. Both systems were problematic for installers and householders and gave a poor aesthetic result.
Astragal bar windows are different. They are designed to faithfully replicate the Georgian window styling, whilst still using a single pane of glass. They deliver modern standards of performance and a classic look. They can enhance the appearance of all ages of property from period cottages to new builds. Our astragal bar windows combine slim accurate bars, perfectly colour matched to the frame. They are securely fastened, yet can be re-used should the glass ever need replacing.
When planners, architects, or homeowners want the small pane appearance, the Futura Astragal solution is practical and very effective.
