Just panels

I am often asked if I have anything that would fit a door. Please take a minute to read the following two paragraphs:

1. I do not source reclaimed door panels as individual items because the lead structure is likely to be brittle, if the glass is not cracked, and therefore unable to withstand stress for further decades. Even if I managed to source in good condition the chances of them being to your size and style are unlikely.

2. For similar reasons it is inadvisable to simply transfer something designed for a static window into a door. A door panel needs to be made to size enabling the lead lines to be designed in a way which provides a robust structure.

I arrange for new door panels to be made to size but do not provide a fitting service. Here follows some examples of door panels which have been made partly utilising glass from my collection.

R249

R249 was made by using some of the coloured glass from these old windows – some of which I still have if you wanted something similar made:

R207c

The Jacksons identified the central motif a set of old windows I had (second photo) which were made into new panels. The Jacksons chose a blue border to match the central motif. Note the door panel is curved. It was made having taken a template of the old panel which was in the door. Although I have no more of the original central motif glass we can identify similiar modern glass if you wanted this design.
