Georgian Style Windows

Georgian style windows are typified by their distinctive grid bar-layout. This quaint feature exists because technology at the time was not capable of creating large glass panes demanded by the grandeur architecture and smaller individual panes were a lot more affordable compared to large glass units. Instead numerous smaller glass panes were manufactured and held in place with bars like the ones we know today.

Nowadays of course, all of our Georgian style windows come with double glazing as standard and are made from high quality, durable materials. Georgian windows give a quaint and unique style that has lasted for centuries and with Quickslide you can design your own heritage Georgian windows today.

Types of Georgian Windows

Material

Originally Georgian windows were made from timber, which can be hard to maintain – whereas our high-quality Georgian style windows are available in PVCu or Aluminium which is long-lasting, easy to maintain and look chic and stylish. PVCu windows are available with a wood effect foil making them look and feel like traditional timber windows from the Georgian era.

Georgian Window Styles

Sliding sash windows have been a very popular choice right from the Georgian period through to the early 20th century. As demand for heritage has returned, sliding sash windows in modern PVCu have become immensely popular. The main feature of Georgian windows is the Georgian bar layout, which is available across all our window ranges including the popular flush sash windows.

Authentic Design

Due to their vast history and heritage, Georgian windows ooze sophistication and elegance which is why they remain so popular to this day. They have a grand aesthetic which works great with traditional homes, or provides a contrasting look for modern homes. 

Georgian Astragal Bars

Our PVCu and aluminium windows achieve their Georgian appearance with the inclusion of Georgian bars. The bars we use today are solely for decorative purposes and are applied to the surface of the glass. Inside the double-glazed unit, you will find something called a spacer bar which gives the illusion of multiple panes of glass as per original Georgian windows.
