What is Double Glazing?


Double glazing is a specialized method of insulating gas layer. This can be done either through natural air or special dense gases between layers of glass. It lets sufficient light get in as much as the single-sized windows. It is perfecting for accommodating heat. Double glazing is something many new homeowners are considering now, but it still can be installed in homes that need repairs on windows and doors. If you want, you too can install double glazed doors and windows in your home, especially to the areas of your home that are primarily heated.

Consider the following for excellent performance:

a)          Frames

When looking for frames,   consider those that are made of insulating materials or thermal break.  A resin or plastic section at the center of the aluminum joinery or any other material made from insulating material such as wood or uPVC. The best thing about these materials is that they do not attract any form of condensation and lose heal slower than windows that are made of conventional aluminum frames. Compared to regular aluminum frames, thermal made aluminum frames reduce the amount of heat lost by 20 percent, while the wooden frames by 40 percent.

b)          Low emissivity glass

This glass lets light and heat in. They also reflect escaping the heat from inside the room. Double glazing windows with low emissivity reduce window heat loss by 30 percent compared to double glazing without the low emissivity.

c)            Multiple layers of seals       

You should look for the best deals to keep away noise, draughts, and moisture. The line between the glazing unit and the frame requires proper sealing. Spacers made of plastic or stainless steel, apart from aluminum. The spacers separate layers of glass panes to minimize heat loss and condensations at the edge.
