Introducing Bygone Harmony Windows
The Harmony range is the most versatile window in the Bygone range, Harmony has numerous optional extras available for individual customisation or to simply tailor your windows to a budget.
A standard Harmony window is constructed much in the same way as Melody. It has the standard 52mm transom, larger side members and deep bottom rail, however it has the option of the slim 39mm meeting rail found on the Bygone Symphony.
The Bygone Harmony
A standard Harmony window is constructed much in the same way as Melody. It has the standard 52mm transom, larger side members and deep bottom rail, however it has the option of the slim 39mm meeting rail found on the Bygone Symphony. Harmony has mitred joints like the Melody, but you can choose fully butt jointed mechanical construction as an optional extra.
Just like timber
Multi-light Harmony windows will have the slim integral mullion, which enhances the appearance considerably. The slim mullion section is a huge step forward in terms of replicating the narrow sight-lines of timber windows.
More Harmony Features
Harmony is also only available in white or cream grained acrylic foil, not gloss. Still ‘A’ rated, but with narrow, slim-line glass units (just 18mm) filled with krypton gas, means Harmony windows have deeper (20mm), more authentic internal Georgian bars and glazing beads.
More Harmony Window Features
Slender sealed units with extra deep bar and bead
While all the Bygone windows are steel reinforced, secured by design and "A rated" as standard, Harmony has slender 18mm sealed units, filled with Krypton gas.
Gas performs far better in narrower units and allows the inside of the window to have really deep astragal bars and glazing bead. Interlocking bars form a grille which is firmly attached to the glass surface, while the bar ends are clamped in place using patented, stainless steel Georgi clips.
Externally chamfered sashes and bars provide the traditional, "putty glazed" appearance.
Mitred joints but authentic horns and deep bottom rails
When horns became fashionable during the Victorian period, they like the deep bottom rails were made with vertical "mortice and tenoned" joints, the same is true for Bygone Harmony sash windows.
Along with a grained, textured, acrylic wood foil you can be certain that your new sash windows will have a perfect, authentic sash window appearance, because most people when they first touch the highly defined grain, cannot believe it's not wood.
Whilst the standard offering is white foil, cream coloured foil is also available however if you require something a little more special, then why not consider the contrast of black frames with white sashes, for that matter any "Farrow and Ball" or "RAL" coloured paint you wish to select.
Colour suited locks and recessed limit stops
Every Bygone Harmony sash window is fitted with a single or pair, of solid stainless steel cam catches and face fixed keeps. Unique and again patented, a pair of left and right hand cams will centralise large sashes within the frame for better security, but even single cams are attached with three screws so Bygone cams won't be forced apart.
Every keep is attached with four screws, two for vertical alignment and two horizontally, into steel reinforcing. Each keep is also fitted with a special nylon insert to protect the plated surface of the stainless steel claw.
Whilst Acorn or Beehive shaped release knobs and cams are standard options for Harmony, the Porcelain ball design is also available as an optional extra.
Again unlike clumsy, surface mounted devices which are fiddly to use, all Bygone sash windows have a pair of recessed limit stops, which are silky smooth and do not protrude from the surface of the sash, until open.
