Georgian style windows have become increasingly popular in recent years with both planners and homeowners looking to add a striking affect to finished projects. frameXpress consequently has seen a steady increase in demand over the last couple of years as customers have grasped the added facet this brings to their business.
The astragal bars can be fitted to any product to enhance the look of windows, doors, French doors & conservatories, giving them the traditional Georgian appearance of individual panes.
A renovation project in Cambridgeshire/Hertfordshire most recently benefited from astragal bar installation, where planners had stipulated that all replacement windows must be sympathetic to the original appearance of the period home. The homeowners wanted windows with black exteriors whilst the interiors had to be white.
The astragal bars were securely fitted using clips which were wrapped around the sealed units while the centre clips incorporated a specially developed adhesive that sticks to the glass in all weathers.
Management at frameXpress believes that the positive trading figures for the astragal bar option stem from the consumer’s desire to upgrade existing properties and add value rather than move home. Those in the frameXpress range are available in white or woodgrain foils and are suitable for both domestic and commercial applications.
frameXpress is recognized across the industry for premium quality standards and products, manufacturing a broad range of windows, doors and conservatories in Profile 22 FS70 system. ‘A’ rated products with Secured By Design accreditations are offered as standard with a wide choice of coloured foils available.
Ian Davis, Sales Manager at frameXpress comments, “As many planners today require the traditional Georgian appearance on period homes to be maintained, the astragal bars make an ideal solution for customers working on renovation projects. They make a cost effective substitute to multiple window pane alternatives.
Ian Davis continues, “As manufacturers we are recognized for providing the highest quality windows, doors and conservatory products to the industry, which is demonstrated on this project.
