What are Glazing Bars?


Glazing bars add a refined, elegant touch to your doors and windows. Also known as “muntins” or “sash bars”, glazing bars are slim pieces of timber or metal that can be used to divide a single pane of glass into a series of smaller panes. 

Glazing bars can be used to create sleek, contemporary square-edged joinery as well as traditional grid designs and heritage styles, including Colonial style (with equal sized panes) and Federation style (with glazing bars around the perimeter of the glass) .
