Church window guards for St Andrew’s Bradfield

Aiano church window guard installation service

After taking templates of the windows at St Andrew’s and handcrafting the window guards, the last stage of the project entailed fixing the guards in position at the church. Aiano craftsmen installed more than a hundred lancet guards and tracery guards over a number of days.


Aiano invisible fixing

Aiano craftsmen use our own method of window guard installation which we call “invisible fixing” because it is all but invisible from the front of the window. It involves tying the guard to a stainless screw with stainless steel tying wire. With this method, there are no unsightly lugs or clips to detract from the harmony of the window. The fixings are hidden behind the guard and as well as being all but invisible, they are less easy to tamper with.

Bird’s-eye view of the church
Sometimes while installing window guards, we are lucky enough to get a bird’s-eye view, or views of the church that most people do not get to see.
The accurate templating of these ornate and complex window shapes takes years of practice and skill to achieve the best results. It is an essential prerequisite to the success of the final step when the window guard installation is completed.
