Architectural Bronze Limited, formerly a division within Vale Garden Houses, is now our sister company working closely with Vale, making bespoke handmade bronze windows, doors, secondary glazing and screens. Architectural bronze shares the expertise of Vales Technical Team, having a strong engineering background and vast experience in the design of extrusions and innovative systems.
The term Architectural Bronze describes a metal alloy of copper, zinc and various other metals that contribute to corrosion resistance, durability and strength. Architectural Bronze also combines longevity with an aesthetic appeal which improves with time giving a feeling of luxury and prestige both inside and out to any building.
For centuries bronze has been regarded as a prize metal, used on relatively small items of value. Coins, sculptures and works of art are all true indicators of its worth and longevity
Over time, more and more home owners and professionals are specifying bronze windows and doors as they realise the true value of these unique products. Architectural Bronze now offer several window and door systems designed to suit restoration, conservation, period properties and contemporary builds.
Our bronze division began in the design of bronze windows for using in conservatories. Vale have over the years designed many conservatories and orangeries that incorporate Bronze windows and doors and The Hardwick conservatory from the National Trust conservatory collection also includes these beautiful windows.
There are four window systems available - the most advanced being the Thermabronze System which is a thermally broken system combining the requirements of modern day thermal efficiency within a slim profile frame. For new builds and period properties we offer a range of systems to suit particular applications.
With the rich, dark aesthetics of the bronze our windows are also suitable for incorporating into new builds and contemporary buildings.
