Glazing Options

Glazing plays an extremely important role in the overall performance of a window. As standard, all timber windows and doors from the Traditional Range are supplied with a high performance double-glazing system optimised for thermal efficiency, high light transmittance and acoustic performance.

To meet your precise project requirements George Barnsdale offer the following glazing options:

  • Enhanced thermal performance glazing
  • Acoustic glass
  • Decorative glass
  • Solar control glass
  • Obscure glass
  • Safety & security glass

Upon request George Barnsdale can supply their timber windows and doors pre-fitted with integral blinds that can be operated remotely. This option can easily be integrated with existing home automation systems.

George Barnsdale have been crafting the highest quality timber windows and doors at their Lincolnshire-based factory since 1884. They blend detailed design with premium materials and cutting edge technologies to ensure their windows and doors are as enduring as they are beautiful.

George Barnsdale provide a localised, personal service through a national network of Approved Partners. Whether you’re looking to replace one window, or have an inventive self-build brief, their Approved Partners have been carefully selected to make sure you get exactly the timber windows and doors that your property deserves.

To suit a variety of property styles George Barnsdale offer three core product ranges – Traditional, Historic and Contemporary – which have been designed to provide you with years of high performance with minimal maintenance. This commitment to performance and longevity is backed by industry-leading guarantees which are reinforced by their suppliers. George Barnsdale offer the following standard guarantees across their Traditional and Contemporary Ranges (there is some variation across the Historic Range due to the authentic design details and putty glazing):

  • Paint Finish – 10 year guarantee against paint coating system failure.
  • Stain Finish – 7 year guarantee against stain coating system failure.
  • Preservative – 30 year guarantee against preservative failure.
  • Glazing Unit – 10 year guarantee for all drained and vented glazing units.
  • Hardware – 10 year guarantee for window and door hardware.
  • Weather Seals – 10 year guarantee against the failure of weather seals.

To ensure their windows and doors meet the highest standard, George Barnsdale are committed to periodic testing, with data by UKAS approved test houses to validate all performance claims.

For complete design flexibility, the Traditional, Historic and Contemporary Ranges have a wide choice of layouts, profiles, glazing, coating and furniture options. For paint and stain colours, if the colour you require isn’t included in the standard options then George Barnsdale can match to a physical sample, or to an existing RAL, Natural Colour System or British Standard colour reference. George Barnsdale also offer a choice of sustainably sourced timber, for which they can provide full FSC® chain of custody for all windows and doors upon request.
