Poulfur Window Installation
With all the sixteen panels and the two frames complete it was now time to install the window. The first job was to fix the two secondary frames into the window recesses top and bottom. These frames will fit flush up to the window, exactly matching the existing frame. Once they are in place we will fit the sixteen separate panels that make up the whole installation.
Frames installed and the first big sigh of relief. You can see from the pictures above that both secondary frames have a cross-member fitted. This provides added strength and support for the leaded panels which we will begin to fit now.
Fitting The Panels
We have decided to start in the top left-hand corner and work across and down. The upper frame is actually six inches taller than the lower frame. Here are the first two panels in situ, so far so good
This is panel no three showing the very top of the lighthouse installed. This is the largest panel in the whole installation so we were glad to see it in place. Second big sigh of relief, this concluded our first days’ work.
Poulfur Window Installation Day Two
Day 2 and we now only have one more panel to fit in the top section, everything lining up and progressing well.
The top section completed and two left-hand side panels of the lower section fitted.
We were glad to see this central panel in place as it is the focal point of the whole installation.
Poulfur School Window Installation completed! Here is the finished window photographed from the upper floor through a glass screen. There is a floor to ceiling glass screen on the upper floor that allows a full view of the window.
