Glazing For Oak Frames
Direct glazing is the only way to successfully glaze a green oak frame building. This deceptively simple and stylish glazing system has been developed over more than a decade, specifically for our timber frames. The basis of the system is that glass is held in position outside of the frame by joinery-quality re-sawn seasoned oak cover boards (see drawing, below). The system allows the maximum amount of light in through the openings in the oak frame while assuring that there is no ingress of water. Rebated glazing systems – especially ones using mastic or other wet sealants – will fail over time. Our direct glazing system is guaranteed for 25 years and, critically, includes the installation as well as the double or triple glazed units.
