There’s a gap between my window pane and the frame – what do I do?

If there’s a gap between the window pane and the frame, you may have a defective window, that has been manufactured incorrectly. At Anglian we ensure this doesn’t happen. Anglian windows are manufactured to the exact measurement of the glass using precise machinery.

If the gap is between the beading and the pane of glass and the pane is able to move in the frame - this could be a simple fix. It is likely that the beading has popped out of position and can be pushed back in. Check to see if it has lifted away from the edge of the frame.

Alternatively, it could be caused by using the wrong beading, which would need replacing with the correct material. For example, you could have a double glazed window with triple glazing beading, which would mean the glass isn’t tightly enough encased.

Should this occur, or you would like further advice please get in touch with us. At Anglian, our windows are made to measure for a perfect fit. If you feel your windows have been poorly fitted it may be that your window supplier did not comply with industry standards. At Anglian, every window meets or exceeds all industry standards, speak to a member of our team today. We’re happy to advise and have helpful engineers available to correct the issue.
