Window guard fixings at St Mary's Hendon Church

AIANO are the only company in the country making window guard fixings using traditional methods. The window guard fixings are a crucial element of the window guard design. Whenever possible Aiano tries to use its own method of “invisible fixings”.

The combination of traditional woven mesh window guards, made by hand, by our skilled craftsmen in our workshop in Poplar, East London, together with Aiano “invisible fixings” brings unbeatable elegance to the windows of churches around the country. .

Aiano has been making church window guards for over 160 years and has vast experience in different methods of guarding and fixing.

Which methods of window guard fixings does Aiano recommend?

AIANO uses its traditional method of fixing which requires the use of stainless steel screws, rawl plugs and stainless steel tying wire. We refer to this as the invisible window guard fixings  method, because after installations the fixings are almost invisible.

There are, however, a variety of window guard fixings methods that can be used. It is important to chose the most appropriate method for the job and this will vary from church to church and project to project. Sometimes, for example, the church or the architect requires guards that can be opened for cleaning, in which case, the guards must have hinges and hasp and staple fastenings.

Churches and historic buildings have widely varying window designs and shapes and our window guards are custom made for each individual window. We produce separate guards for each window light and tracery.
