What is Double Glazing?

Double glazing consists of two glass panes separated by a space that reduces heat transfer between the inside and outside of a building. This  improves energy efficiency, minimizes noise, and decreases condensation. The gap between the glass is often filled with argon, and low-emissivity coatings can be applied to reflect heat and UV rays. Double glazing is used in homes to enhance comfort, save energy, and promote environmental sustainability.

How it Works

Where as Single Pane Windows will have a single piece of glass, usually between 4-6mm Wide. Double Glazing will have two glass panels and a spacer bar of  16 - 20mm in between which is filled with Argon gas.

The total Double Glazed Unit (DGU) will be a total of 28mm Wide

This is designed to optimally reduce heat and noise passing through and therefore maximising the energy and sound efficient of your home

UV Protection

Double glazing reduces UV exposure by utilizing low-emissivity coatings that reflect UV rays while allowing visible light, an insulating gap filled with gases that absorb UV radiation, and UV-resistant materials, collectively providing effective protection against harmful UV rays.

 

This safeguards interior items from fading and minimizes potential health risks associated with UV exposure, contributing to a more comfortable and healthier indoor environment.
