Unique Design – Surface mounted, bonded Georgian bars
The Georgian bars that create each pane are crucial to the authentic look of a sash window. Only one thing achieves that result – authentically shaped, securely fixed, surface mounted external glazing bars.
Bygone UPVC sash windows have external bonded bars as standard, which add a third dimension to your windows, protruding from the surface of the glass the way the muntin bars did on the originals creating depth, character and shadow lines.
The Bygone Collection uses a patented method of interlocking the Georgian bars together before clamping them to the glass with a Georgi ClipTM. Bygone sash window bars are guaranteed to stay firmly attached – even when they are used to open the windows!
Unique Design – Torso Balances
Balances are an extremely important component of a sash window. They’re the engine, they provide extra assistance to make it easier to open and close heavy sashes.
TORSO balances are guaranteed to open and close for at least fifty thousand cycles, that is three times per day, every day for the next fifty years. That is why we fit them as standard.
Unique Design – Tilt Restrictors
Cleaning Bygone sash windows is safe and easy, these restrictors are fitted as standard. Unlike many other sash windows, the unique dual tilt restrictors on a Bygone window means each sash can be tilted back, at the perfect angle for easy and safe cleaning from the inside of your home.
On exceptionally large windows (too heavy for standard tilt restrictors) we include as standard safety stays. Small tilt restrictors designed to prevent the accidental unlocking of sash windows again another unique Bygone feature.
