What is Double Glazing?
Double glazing is made from two pieces of glass sealed together with an air space in between. A double glazed window sits in your window frame just as regular single glazing would, but provides a number of extra benefits. Whether you are looking to keep your home warmer, quieter or even wanting to reduce condensation, Bradnam's can recommend the best combination of glass types to meet your needs.
How Effective is it?
Double glazing can make a big difference to comfort levels in your home. By double glazing a window with clear glass, you can halve the heat loss compared to a single glazed window of the same size and shape. You can reduce the heat loss even further by using different glass types (such as Low-E glass) and using argon gas to fill the space between the two panes of glass.
Double Glazing & Noise Reduction
Double glazing transfers less noise than ordinary single glazing. Performance depends on the thickness of the glass and spacer.
Means a warmer home for winter and a cooler home in summer. Double glazing can increase the insulative property of your windows by up to 73% - significantly reducing your energy costs.
Keep the noise out of your house - up to 70% of external noise can be eliminated by double glazing.
The double glazing barrier prevents condensation forming on the inside of your windows. A warmer, dryer home is much better for your family’s health.
Less breakages and accidents, plus increased security. A lot safer for children.
Simply specifying UV filtering glass means less damage to your curtains, carpets, couches and it will be safer for occupants.
More and more, the benefits of double glazing are being recognised by homeowners, which increases the resale appeal and the value of your property.
