What are Georgian windows

Georgian windows are traditional style windows that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Traditional Georgian windows are characterised being a large window comprised of up to six or more smaller panes held together by horizontal and vertical astragal bars. Typically, the bars are slimmer than the surrounding frames that create a larger area of glass allowing more natural light to flood the room.

Why do all Georgian windows have bars?

Traditional Georgian Window making methods were limited to creating smaller sheets of glass. The technology at the time only allowed a sheet of glass less than a few feet square. This is becuase windows were made by glass blowing! As strange as it seems, a huge cylinder of glass was blown and the window sheets were cut from it. The sheet of glass would be curved and would be rehated and flattened out. Becuase of the size limitations, larger windows were formed from upto 6 smaller pieces of glass creating the traditonal Georgian aesthetic.

Why do all Georgian windows have bars?

It wasn’t until the 1870’s that technology advanced allowing larger panes of flat glass to be created. William Pilkington used ribbons of glass drawn from a tank by dual cooling rollers allowing for much larger sheets of glass to be produced, this new glass production ultimately created  a decline in traditional styled windows.
