Lamination
Obscured glass is used in the production of double glazed units where privacy is required, for example front entrances or bathroom windows. Mass produced 4mm obscured glass patterns have hardly changed since the 1960's.  The range is very limited and hardly inspiring if compared to the vast array of textures that 3mm decorative 'art glass' offers.
Unfortunately, single panes of handmade glass are too fragile and unsafe for use in double glazed units, unless they are laminated to a second pane of glass. We produce 'art glass' double glazed units that conform to BS EN 1279.

 
Encapsulation
Encapsulating a lead light window is the process of suspending it between two panes of glass and sealing it to form a double glazed unit.
Whether you are considering restoring your existing decorative glass or having a new design produced, an encapsulated lead light is superior in quality and appearance to modern day plastic 'stick on' film reproductions.
Units are produced in thicknesses of 19mm, 24mm and 28mm. They can be made with toughened and/or thermally efficient glass, increasing security and insulation whilst adding a long lasting decorative feature to your home.
 
 
 
 

Secondary Glazing
If you are having your existing lead lights restored we can re-install them with a toughened glass secondary glaze, usually planted on the inside face, improving the insulation and security of your home.
