Double Glazing

When multiple glass panes or “lites” are assembled into units, they are commonly referred to as insulated glass or double glazing. Insulation glass is a glazed unit composed of two or more glass panes separated by spacers filled with dehydrated air or gas. The sheets are connected by a spacer, using sealants to reduce water vapor penetration. The whole unit is hermetically assembled by a secondary edge seat which gives structural robustness to the insulating glass. The spacer contains a desiccant which absorbs humidity from within the air space while as the same time providing a clear vision through the unit at low temperature.

Why use Double Glazing

The most important function of insulating glass is to reduce thermal losses, which offers many advantages: lower energy consumption, perfect transparency by reducing the incidence of condensation on the warm air side and possibility of using larger glazed areas without increasing energy consumption. Not only energy cost is significantly reduced, it also provides additional benefit of exterior noise reduction.
