  Double Glazed Sash Windows

Most if not all double glazed sashes suffer from some or all of the following problems:

  • Glazing bars are made much too wide in order to hide the double glazed  unit edge seals
  • Glazing bars do not have the correct moulding  detail Glazing bars are stuck on to the glass
  • Meeting rail splay or rebate is pinned on
  • External glazing bones are stuck on to the glass
  • Glazing beads used instead of putty
  • Mock  external putty line stuck on to glass

The above design details result in a poorly made and visually unacceptable sash window.

W. & J. Bolger double glazed sash windows are very different:

  • Glazing bars are exact match of original bars
  • Sashes are correctly made - glazing bars are not stuck on
  • External glazing bones are not stuck on. They are housed into the sash in a lattice frame
  • Sashes are putty glazed on the outside

The result is that Bolger double glazed sashes are by far the best made and by far the most authentic double glazed sashes available.

In order to maintain the superior draught proof properties of your Perimeter Sealing System, great care should be taken when painting sash windows over time. The brush system should not be damaged by paint.

Please ensure that you painter familiarises themselves with the correct procedure for painting sash windows with a draught proofing system fitted, ensuring the protection.

If the draughtproofing brush pile becomes damaged by paint this will result in an increase in draughts and an increase in outside noise. It can also result in the windows becoming stuck and in some cases will result in the brush pile becoming detached.

To avoid the risk of having your draughtproofing system damaged by painters who do not fully understand the system please contact us. We can recommend a Painting Contractor whose crews have been fully trained in how to remove and re fit the brush pile, thereby protecting the system.
