We also stock a range of windows for the security conscious.
Iron star grilles, attached to robust iron bars and inserted into wooden frames are designed to prevent anyone from attempting entry.
Or the wooden bars of mullion windows offer some security while allowing fresh air into your workshop.
Want to increase turnover?
Do you need access for customers to your shop or workshop?
We can supply half or full height shutters to open up the front of your premises so your goods can be clearly seen from the pavement and customers are tempted to impulse buy. Easy to slot back in place at the end of the working day.
Tired of draughts?
Then we can supply and fit pull-to wooden shutters to any type of unglazed window.
The model shown here has a bottom-of-the-range waxed cloth covering and what better way to conceal them than by shutters?
Roman glass was made by heating silica (sand), soda (which was used as a flux to reduce the melting temperature) and calcium (lime) which acted as a stabiliser. Iron oxide, a naturally-occurring impurity in the sand produces the characteristic natural blue-green shades of Roman glass. There is no evidence for glass being made in London but rather for glass being imported as a raw material or recycled.
Early glass window panes were made from a molten ball of glass which, when in a malleable state, was pulled into a flat pane of glass using pincers. Once the glass began to cool and harden, the size of the pane was set. Later window panes were produced by blowing. The glass was blown into moulds and then cut into panes, making it possible to produce a greater variety of sizes.
