This large early 1800′s cast iron metal casement was no longer functioning properly and at some point in it’s history the cast iron glazing bars had been removed. The frame was shot blasted to remove the old paintwork and new glazing bars cast. Once we had the casement functioning properly the new bars were brazed into there original positions and the casement painted with a zinc phosphate primer which protects against corrosion. Once re-fitted and pointed using a traditional lime mortar the casement was then glazed using 4.5mm restoration glass which is produced using the Fourcault Process, in keeping with the rest of the glazing at the property.
