Glasswood Church Window Guards Specifications
Glasswood has unparalleled expertise developed over 40 years in designing and making church window guards. We employ highly skilled and experienced craftsmen – welders and wire workers – and we have particular expertise in designing guards to suit complex windows and situations, for example large windows with many traceries for Churches and cathedrals.
We are particularly well known for our traditional mesh window guards. To our knowledge we are the only company in the country making window guards using these traditional methods. Churches and historic buildings have widely varying window designs and shapes and our window guards are custom made for each individual window. We produce separate guards for each window light and tracery.
Stainless steel weld mesh
The guards will be made from 3” x ½” (76mm x 12mm) weld mesh made from 12swg (2.64mm) stainless steel wire on 5swg (5mm) stainless steel round bar frame.
We use high quality 304 or 316 grade stainless steel wire manufactured specially to our specification in France. Glasswood uses high quality 304 and 216 grade round bar sourced from English companies.
The guards will be coated in polyester black. (Polyester powder coating is recommended for general exterior situations, where good weathering resistance is required).
