Glazing bars for windows

A glazing bar (also called sash bar) is a rigid bar that connects two separate panes of glass. Traditionally, glazing bars were used in sash windows. They enabled the manufacturer to combine smaller, less expensive panes of glass to create large windows. More recently, they tend to be used for aesthetic reasons to give a more traditional appearance and feel to a glass unit.

Window glazing bars configurations can change your house appearance. You have countless combination options to give a personal touch and a more traditional style to your composite windows and doors.
Glazing bars can add character and style to your VELFAC windows or glazed doors– use vertical or horizontal bars to maintain a uniform pattern formed by mullions or transoms, or to create a Georgian style window divided into smaller panes.
They can also be used to combine two different types of glazing in the same sash, for example in ‘apron’ areas of glazing.

Glazing bars are available in 36mm, 54mm and 115mm to match transoms and mullions. 36mm and 54mm internal profiles are available in grey, white & black. Glazing bars are not available for fire windows and doors.
