Glass Heritage LLC uses an industrial strength extruded aluminum framing. We carefully bend each frame to ensure an exact fit. Because we custom make the framing ourselves, we can offer the best available framing at substantial savings.
Our external protective coverings fit the entire perimeter of the window opening and have strategically placed vent caps to ensure long lasting protection from the elements.
A stained glass window is a living, breathing work of art. It stretches and swells with the heat and contracts and compresses when it's cold. Ventilated protective coverings have small holes cut out and outfited with vent caps that keep insects out while simultaneously alowing air flow in and out. This results in an increase of life span for the window, ensuring that radical changes in the temperature do not adversely affect the window. It also relieves condensation so that the glass does not get englufed in fog, obscuring the art work of the window.
