Stained Glass Window Protection

One of the most vulnerable and valuable parts of a historic or ecclesiastical building is the stained glass windows, so protection for these windows need to be taken into consideration. These windows are a focal point of both vision and worship and therefore protection of them must be sympathetic and allow the windows to be viewed in their entirety.

Guarantee - Lifetime

We only use the highest grade and quality of materials that enable us to offer an indefinite guarantee against corrosion or faulty workmanship, in addition to this because of the confidence we have in our product, we will even replace steel window guards free of charge if they get damaged due to a determined attack of vandalism.


We offer the highest quality steel window guards and service at a competitive price, even compared to companies that use cheap inferior imported material. One section of our factory is exclusively dedicated to steel window protection manufacture and this combined with our experience allows us to provide a fast turnaround. We have a fixed price per square foot regardless of client, location or size of project and our price has remained constant for eleven years despite the large increases in the cost of quality materials.

Site works

All of our metalwork craftsmen are fully insured and experienced with the requirements and responsibilities that working on a prestigious building entails. We have our own hydraulic access platforms which allow us to carry out the works safely and in many cases reduces the need for permanent, unsightly scaffolding. Reducing the time on site and cost to you.

"We offer either the complete service from pattern taking manufacture and installation or we can supply only to templates that are provided to us by stained glass studios and glazing contractors."
