For many homeowners one of the key considerations in the specifications of their windows and doors is that of glass.
The four main attributes that customers look for in double glazing is energy efficiency, safety, privacy and noise reduction.
Probably the primary reason most people opt for double glazed windows is to reduce energy bills thanks to the thermal benefits that are achievable.
Glass specifications can become very detailed but ultimately what really matters is the overall energy performance rating of the window, otherwise know as WER. A window with an ‘A’ energy rating is what most homeowners want in their double glazed units as it reduces the amount of cold that can get in and greatly minimises the amount of heat that can be lost.
Old double glazed units or single glazed units are very energy inefficient and will result in higher energy bills and often produce condensation inside in the winter months.
A well made modern double glazed unit will overcome these problems with a number of key features which include warm edge spacer bars, high performance glass and argon filled cavities.
Toughened safety glass can be used in double glazed units in locations where there is a danger of falling through the glass and for added security this can be upgraded to laminated glass.
Laminated, unlike toughened glass, will not shatter into many small pieces and instead will still hold together when broken making it particularly difficult to penetrate.
