In order to comply with strict planning requirements for a Grade II listed building, George Barnsdale has produced a range of Historic Box Sash and side opening flush casement windows with narrow cavity glazing units and solid glazing bars.  These windows offer all the historical aesthetics and character with modern day performance including our patented seal which means our sash windows are among the higest performing windows on the market.

In addition, three double stable doors with the bottom sections fixed and single stable doors with opening top and bottom sections were also manufactured. A combination of single white and dual colour white and purple paint was chosen throughout. Our unique paint process with specially controlled slow drying and four coatings is second to none and means that the windows and doors are guaranteed not to need repainting for at least ten years.
