Types of glass services which we offer in residential properties are:
- Single glazing, double glazing, triple glazing
- Timber, uPVC and aluminium frames
- Clear, obscure, leading, Georgian bar, leaded lights
- K-glass (low-E, Planitherm) toughened/safety glass, argon-filled, laminated, sound insulated, A-rated, warm-edge spacer bar)
Energy Rated Glass
Low-Emissivity (Low-e Windows) Coatings
Low-emissivity (low-e) coatings on glazing or glass control heat transfer through windows with insulated glazing. Windows manufactured with low-e coatings typically cost about 10% to 15% more than regular windows, but they reduce energy loss by as much as 30% to 50%.
Warm Edge Spacer
Warm edge (or thermal break) spacers reduce the heat lost around the perimeter of a double glazing window by replacing conventional aluminium with a low heat-conductive material. Some double glazing window can provide nearly 1,000 times more thermal insulation than aluminium spacer bars, improving the energy efficiency of Low E windows by 40 to 50%.
Conventional Double Glazing involves the creation of a double skin of glass filled with dry air so designed as to increase the energy efficiency of any building in which it is used by reducing the heat losses through the windows. This form of double glazing is far more effective than a single paned window.
