At Glasshaus Studio, we can fabricate fanlights using stained glass lead came, or by incorporating the original technique which involves fabricating composite glazing bars.
Our glazing bars compose of a lead profile with a zinc glazing fin as an alternative to the older iron fin, originally used circa. 1770 onwards.
When looking to have an authentic style fanlight installed, our highly skilled design team and craftsmen have the experience and ability to replicate and create fanlights to the finest standard available. These can range from the earlier radiating and elliptical designs to the later, less ornate teardrop and bats wing designs. For all our new fanlights we use handmade cylinder restoration glass as standard, this is the closest alternative to crown glass, which would have originally been used in fanlights.
Conservation of fanlights
In addition to fabricating new fanlights, we offer clients a fanlight conservation repair service. We always recommend that fanlights & sidelights of interest should be retained and repaired as appropriate to the materials, fanlights often contain much original crown glass which is precious due to its rarity. We can undertake less disruptive in situ repairs, or in more extreme cases, remove the fanlight to our studio for repair.
