    Product Description

    Double-glazing simply means two sheets of glass with a space in between. A double-glazed unit is two pieces of glass sealed along its sides with “spacers”. The space can be filled with either air or argon depending on the window requirements (Argon is better at reducing heat loss).

    Benefits

    Double-glazing has been popular in Europe for many years and will soon become commonplace in Australia. Climate change legislation and awareness will mean that new homes will soon have to meet “Six Star Energy Ratings”. Double-glazing has become popular due to the following benefits:

    - Noise reduction (up to 80%);

    - Heat transfer reduction (up to 31%);

    - UV light reduction (up to ~100%).

    A handy tip to improve noise and heat insulation benefits is to use two different types of glass for the double glazed unit. Some noise and heat waves which pass through one type of glass will not pass through a different type of glass
