Stainless Steel Window Guards
When electing to install window protection one has to consider the impact fitting guards will have on the external appearance of the building. As our church window guards are carefully designed and manufactured to very accurately follow the profile of the stone surround of every individual light, foil and mouchette then finished in black polyester powder coating as standard the visual impact is minimal because they become virtually 'invisible' from just a few steps away. Manufactured from stainless steel, using a traditionally configured mesh our window guards are maintenance free and guaranteed against corrosion. We fit our church window guards using our own thoughtfully designed, unobtrusive, low profile stainless steel clips and stainless steel screws which are always 'joint fixed' wherever possible as this is the least invasive method and often specified by Architects and preferred by English Heritage due to it's reversibility. When existing window guards are replaced any fixing holes etc. left by their removal can be carefully 'made good' with traditional hydraulic lime mortar, matched to the body colour of the stone if required. What sets us apart from other church & listed building window guard suppliers is the fact that many of them are in the main stained glass & leaded light specialists, offering guards as a secondary service whereas we work the other way round with the emphasis being placed first and foremost on the quality of installation and the appearance of the church window guards once fitted. We are as passionate about the window protection as they are about the windows we protect!
Polycarbonate Window Guards
We only use the highest quality sign grade (UV Stabilised both sides) clear Polycarbonate which is available in various thicknesses to manufacture our window guards. They are made and fitted using the same principle as our accurately fitted stainless steel window guards in order to achieve the best possible external appearance.
Combination Window Guards
Where the level of protection offered by Polycarbonate is required but the appearance unacceptable, the solution may be to fit stainless steel window guards with a polycarbonate backing. This method greatly reduces the 'glare' associated with stand alone polycarbonate guards.
Bird Control, Insect screen & Ventilation Guards
In addition to protective window guards we also manufacture and install bird exclusion guards and harmless window sill roosting and nesting deterrents. Where ventilation is required our very fine grade stainless steel fly mesh guards are designed to replace glass (including quarries) or as a backing for louvre windows.
