Leadlight and Stained Glass Repair
Whilst aesthetically pleasing, leadlight and stained glass are often poorly constructed. Poorly made leadlight windows commonly are the result of improperly fitted glass and joints that are weakly or overly soldered. This can put strain on the glass which leads to stress cracks as well as allowing the elements to seep inside when the manifold is not sealed correctly.
PENROSE GLASS offers a variety of services involving the repair or replacements of part of whole sections of leadlight windows which we undertake with specialised care.
Older windows can also be repaired or damaged panels be replaced, but due to changes in methods of making our stained glass products some textures and hues may be difficult to replicate but most older styles can be reproduced. Our range of colours and textures is quite extensive and the vast majority of older colours are available.
Leadlight framework repair is also part of our service. We handle all aspects of regarding the replacement of damaged framework as well as the resoldering of joints to ensure the stained glass panels are properly housed. Application of new putty to replace old, cracked seals is also available and guarantees the leadlight panel is held in place and weatherproof.
Restoration of the glass panelling is also available and can be carried out when the lead is being replaced. This service is especially popular for antique stained glass that become dulled with age and can find new longevity with our expert rejuvenation.
Double Glazed and Insulated Glass
Airplane and other traffic noise can be burdensome and affect your life in a variety of factors. PENROSE GLASS uses an inert gas in the fabrication process of our Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) to improve the performance of our double glazed glass. Added to this as with most of our products the glass can be tinted to reduce light intensity.
Double glazing is a suitable option for those that wish to open up their houses with either large window panelling or glass doors, but who risk opening themselves up to the noise of the congested outside world.
Normal 3mm glass lets in the majority of noise pollution, but the IGUs made at PENROSE GLASS reduce noise by up to 65%. In selecting the right IGU for your needs, it is advised that any relevant information regarding the main purpose of your IGUs should be discussed at the time of placing your order. For example: those directly affected by aircraft noise will need increased airspace between the panels to more effectively insulate against the noise.
The noise mitigating capabilities of double glazed glass enable you to enjoy the benefits of natural light whilst keeping the noise of the outside world to a minimum.
Another advantage of double glazing is its greater resistance to heat transfer and heat loss. The use of inert gas and the double panelling give an effective barrier. This can save on heating bills, keep you warm in winter and reduce carbon emissions which place money back in your pocket.
IGUs can be treated in various ways to reduce the amount of heat lost and also the level of light and heat which finds its way in over the course of the day. Those with windows with direct sunlight will benefit the most from the effects of tinted or reflective IGUs with the level of light reduced by up to 78%.
