Glazing And Thermal Regulations

With ever-rising energy cost and impeding government legislation, sealed insulated glass (or double glazed) units are becoming more and more essential to any home.

Conventional single glazed windows are the weakest thermal link within a home. They cause the greatest heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. In a typical insulated house 40% of the energy loss is through your windows, wasting money on heating and cooling your home.

Double glazed units consist of two panels of glass separated by a spacer around the edges and sealed to the perimeter in factory controlled conditions. The spacer contains a desiccant drying agent which eliminates moisture vapour in the cavity.

Energy Awareness In Double Glazed Solutions
  • Reduced heating in winter and cooling costs in summer.
  • Reduced noise pollution.
  • Enhanced security.
