Double Glazing – Two Panels of Glass are Better than One
Double Glazing is designed to reduce the amount of warmth lost during winter and prevent unwanted heat gain during summer – helping homes stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter. They consist of two panels of glass bonded together by a spacer and separated by a argon gas filled space. The air gap acts as a thermal barrier between the inner and outer pieces of glass, creating an effective insulation system. The warm edge spacer made of an extruded, thermoset polymer structural silicone foam which delivers exceptional thermal performance, argon gas retention and long-term durability.
Our Double Glazing provides superior climate control, noise reduction and strength. They provide many benefits when compared to ordinary single glazed glass including improved energy efficiency, lower energy costs, improved occupant comfort and reduced condensation. Other features include greater reduction in noise when combined with either standard Laminate glass or Sound Smart Acoustic Laminate glass.
