What is an astragal bar? Astragal bars are planted on top of the window glazing internally and externally. They separate panes of glass, giving the effect of traditional period features. In other words, astragal bars are applied to one single piece of glazing, but give the effect of multiple panes of glass to enhance the look of the window by giving it this classic appearance.
Astragal Bar Fitting Instruction
- Remove any debris off the glass, particularly in the immediate vicinity of the silicone seal, prior to glazing. Thoroughly clean the sealed unit using glass cleaner and make sure it has dried
- Wipe the area of glass where the bar is to be fitted with methylated spirit (not included)
- Peel the glazing tape from one side and stick it to the bar
- Place the bar in the correct position. Once happy with the location, pull the backing tape out from between the glass and the bar and push it down firmly into position
- Repeat this process until all astragal bars are fitted into the correct position
- Use suitable silicon to seal the sides of the glazing bars (not included).
