For centuries, architects have used well-proportioned and beautifully designed windows to help to define a building’s style. This is true of the Georgian period more than any other. Tall, elegant windows, made up of equally sized panes, were spaced evenly and symmetrically on the front and rear elevations of the building.
Georgian bars are set inside the sealed unit, which means that they are sandwiched in between layers of glazing. Georgian bar inserts are a stylish and practical alternative to conventional Georgian window bars. Protected from dust and dirt, between the panes, the bars never need to be cleaned. Georgian bars look best in windows that are taller than they are wide (portrait). Traditionally the individual panes in Georgian windows had a height-to-width ratio of approximately 4:3.
