GLASS THAT WE USE

Glass is one of the biggest factors in energy savings these days and our glass surpasses all UK requirements and standards. Our 24mm Double Glazed Argon Filled   Guardian Glass  has been tested and passed BSI testing.

The most optimal, energy efficient & cost effective Double Glazing is 24mm overall – made up with 4mm LowE Softcoat Inner pane – 16mm argon gas filled air gap with Warm Edge Spacers – and 4mm Float glass to Outer pane. This gives the glass unit a u-value rating of 1.0 to 1.1 wm²k.

This “ Climaguard Premium ” system is made by “Guardian Glass” and it is used as standard on most of our products. Our safety glass comes stamped to show you it is Safety Glass.

The Warm Edge Spacer system we use is either SuperSpacer or SwissSpacer. These Warm Edge Spacer systems come in two options of colour, Black or White. We always recommend the Black spacer bar as it looks neater and sharper, even if the windows/doors are white. Some manufacturers will use and offer you 20mm Double Glazing etc which does look slimmer, but, be aware that the energy efficiency deteriorates significantly if the glass unit is any slimmer than 24mm and filled with argon gas.

How low-E glass works
on warm days

Sun’s direct intensity, short wave infrared heat energy, strikes the glass surface and surroundings converting this energy into long wave (low energy) infrared heat.

The Low-E coating assists in rejecting this heat back outside.

How low-E glass works
on cold days

Typical oil bar heater energy and stored energy being released from floors (this stored energy may passively collect during the day from the sun’s direct transmission.

The Low-E coating assists in reflecting this heat back inside.

Superior glazing methods

Most dry glazing gasket systems shrink and rot leaving you with leaks and problems…

The method that we use for glazing is approved by the Glass & Glazing Federation, a tried and tested method over many decades, which combines the use of butyl AND silicone, which ensures 2 superior seals around your glass so you can be sure that there are no leaks, or problems.
