Types of double glazing

Double glazed window

The double glazing system consists of two or more layers of glass that are placed in parallel at equal distances from each other and separated by a spacer around its circumference. In the space between the glasses, there is air or special gases without moisture (argon or krypton) with a pressure almost equal to the outside air. Double-glazed windows often use aluminum spacers that fill the inside of the spacer with a dehumidifier, which absorbs moisture from the air between the two windows and is completely sealed by a suitable sealant. If you use double glazing and insulated windows, you can save 40 cubic meters of gas per square meter per square meter per year. In addition to reducing energy consumption and noise, we will also have a cleaner environment.

Properties of double glazing

  • Reduce energy waste
  • Reduce noise pollution
  • Prevent damp glass
  • More safety than single glazed windows

Types of double glazing

  • Plain: This type of glass consists of two simple float glass walls.
  • Colored: This type of glass consists of a colored wall and a simple wall.
  • Reflex: This type of double glazing is made of a simple wall and a reflex glass wall that the reflex glass wall should be facing outwards. Reflective glass strongly prevents the passage of strong sunlight, but their drawback is that it darkens the inside of the building and is visible inside the building at night.
  • Securit: Securit glass is intended for high-risk and high-traffic areas. Securite glass is completely shattered when broken and does not cause large and dangerous pieces of glass. Side windows of cars are of the Securite type.
  • Laminate: Laminate glass in a glass factory usually consists of two simple glass walls with a thickness of 3 mm and a layer of resin in the middle of them. Laminated glass is not crushed when it hits a hard barrier and only leaves cracks. The front and rear windows of cars are laminated.

With the realization of the benefits of double glazing and with the introduction of UPVC profiles, the use of double glazing became more popular. Fewer renovated buildings can now be found with single-pane glass. The most important factor in replacing old windows with UPVC windows with double glazing is the reduction of thermal conductivity of double glazing compared to single glazing. The lower the heat transfer coefficient of a window, the greater the amount of insulation. The thermal conductivity of a window is measured in watts per square meter in degrees Celsius or Kelvin. In simple terms, it indicates the amount of energy wasted per square meter of window for a temperature difference of 1 ° C outside and inside the house. The following table is used to compare the thermal conductivity of double-glazed and single-glazed windows: ‌ a triple glazing has less heat transfer than a 35 cm wall.
