What are glazing bars and timber moulds?

A glazing bar is a bar or rigid supporting strip between adjacent panes of glass. These bars are also popularly known is being called “Muntins”.

Glazing bars are also called “muntin bars” or “sash bars”. Glazing bars can be found in doors, windows and furniture, typically in western styles of architecture. Glazing bars divide a single window sash or casement into a grid system of small panes of glass.

Until the middle of the 19th century, it was seen as economically necessary to use smaller panes of glass, which were much more affordable to produce and fabricate into a grid to make large windows and doors. Many considered the division of a window or glazed door into smaller panes to be more architecturally attractive than use of large panes. Hence the window styles that are still popular today.

Sash Window Shop glazing bars can be custom made to meet the requirements of double glazed sash windows as many customers still like the appearance which glazing bars give. In Conservation Areas for example, customers need to match their new windows to their existing windows which have Georgian or Victorian glazing bars.
