Slimline double glazed windows perfectly replicate the appearance and features of single glazing on original timber or period windows and by doing so allows
a home owner to gain all the thermal and sound benefits of double glazing without compromising the character, charm or value of their property.
From the exterior and the interior (unless you look very closely), you can‟t tell that the windows have double-glazing fitted. With standard double glazing it is immediately apparent that the glass has been changed which is detrimental to the character of the property as well as its value.
Slimline units do not produce the unnatural „double reflection‟ or “distorted reflection” that is sometimes seen when you use standard double glazing
Each slimline unit is fitted on a bedding putty compound which gives each pane a very slightly different reflective angle of light to any onlooker which is a key factor that helps to maintain the originally and character of any period property façade.
Standard double glazing, as it is constructed as one glass unit with applied mouldings to replicate the glazing bars gives off the same reflective angle from each and every pane which can look modern and unnatural.
The thermal efficiency benefits of slimline double-glazing can now be even better than standard double-glazing, achieving U-values (the term used to measure thermal efficiency) of as low as 1.2 on a 6mm gas-filled cavity, depending on the type of gas fill used. The reduction of heat loss through the glass is up to 77 per cent as when compared against single glazing and it is possible on some windows to use slimline units to achieve the new Part L building regulations for thermal efficiency.
Replacing the individual panes of slimline double-glazing is easy should the need ever arise to replace a cracked or damaged pane. Standard double-glazing units use applied glazing bars to try and achieve a “period look” by sticking timber mouldings to both sides of the glass. This effectively means that, should a window ever break, then the glass to the whole window will need to be replaced and this will require the services of both a glazier to replace the glass and a skilled joiner to replicate and replace the timber beads to achieve a satisfactory replacement. With slimline double-glazing, as with single glazing, you would just need to replace the broken pane, making the job a lot simplerGet FREE Quotes For Slimline Double Glazed Windows TODAY!
