Things you Probably Didn’t Know About Double Glazing
We all know what double glazing is; there’s no escaping the TV and radio commercials that advertise the many benefits of installing their product, yet we think we’ve found a few interesting things about double glazing that you probably weren’t aware of.
- Thermal Barrier – While the double glazed sealed units provide a barrier to retain the heat, the aluminium frames are also insulated by means of a polymer resin layer that separates the inner and outer frames. This prevents condensation on the frames and UPVC frames do not require a thermal barrier, as the plastic offers a high level of thermal insulation.
- Triple Glazing – Yes, there is now triple glazing and that extra barrier really does make a difference. Any of the double glazing companies in Bromley have triple glazing and it isn’t much more costly than double glazing, yet it offers even better thermal and sound insulation.
- There are no Standard Sizes – As you would expect, each and every double glazed window is custom made to fit the aperture and that means you get to choose every aspect of the design, including the opening style.
- Window Locks – Each opening has its own lock, which is great for home security; some have keys and some simply lock automatically, either way, this will boost your home security.
