With over 25 years worth of experience in the traditional leaded light industry, we developed Touchstone Insulead glazing system (Patented) to specifically overcome the problem of double glazing windows in a heritage building situation. No modification to the existing fabric of the building is required as the Insulead glazing fits where the original was located, and is made using only traditional materials.
Directly glazed into the original stonework
An appearance virtually identical to the original
Touchstone Steelyte opening casements are uniquely designed and constructed from Stainless Steel. Thermally broken and fully weather stripped, they take a full 28mm unit. They combine the narrowest of sight lines with security, durability and elegance. The steel is all but immune from corrosion. Whilst powder coated for the heritage market openers can be supplied polished for modern building applications.
Stainless steel and effectively maintenance free
Due to Touchstone Insulead’s unique ability to take any thickness of unit (28mm standard) it is possible to incorporate specialised glass for the purposes of security, UV filtration, energy conservation and sound inhibition all whilst maintaining a traditional appearance. It is even possible to use the original glazing either within the double glazing or mounted in front or behind as a decorative screen.
Extensive range of glazing options including original
Shapes and out of square windows easily accommodated
Touchstone Insulead has been specifically designed for double glazed units. It is fully drained and thermally broken. In the unlikely event of water ingress through, for example stone porosity, the inbuilt drainage channels allow the water to exit to the outside via weep holes. Combined with warm edge spacer bar technology the highest level of insulation is possible.
