Double Glazing Units

Double Glazed Units – Insulated Glass Units IGU’s can comprise all of our glass types and any combination of glass can be used. This includes our pyroltic low-e glass and switchable glass. Double glazing is the glazing process in which a window is made with two panes of glass with a space between them. Double Glazing is two sheets of glass that are sealed together to create a single glazed piece with an air space in between them that help trap heat between the two panes. The air pocket essentially acts as an insulating barrier thereby improving the energy efficiency of the window. How effective is double glazing? Double glazing can make a big difference to comfort levels in your home. Combined with insulation in the walls, ceiling and floor, double glazing your windows and doors will help keep temperatures stable and reduce heating and cooling costs.


Leading design & delivery of glass By double glazing a window with clear glass, you can halve the heat loss compared to a singleglazed window of the same size and shape. You can reduce the heat loss 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 also usually enhances the appearance of a property. There are a number of styles to choose from in terms of frames for the glass, including unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC), aluminum and hardwood. UPVC has better insulating properties than aluminum, but aluminum may be more aesthetically pleasing in older properties. Frames come in a wide range of color options. Double Glazed Sealed Units Double Glazed Sealed Units are manufactured by us using either Aluminium Spacer Bar or Warm Edge Spacer Bar to provide the air gap between the two panes of glass. What are the benefits of having Double Glazed Units?  Heat loss through single glazing will be at least halved with double glazed units.  Draughts through windows caused by sinking cooled air will be less with double glazed units.  Rooms will be warmer with double glazed units.  Outside noise can be reduced with double glazed units.  Double Glazing Condensation Leaflet Condensation can be reduced with double glazed units.  Increases the sale ability of the property with double glazed units.  Savings on fuel bills with double glazed units.

Flat Glass Industries is a leader in value-added processing and wholesaling of glass and architectural glass hardware for the building and manufacturing sectors. We cover the complete spectrum of glass to commercial and residential industries – from float to laminated and toughened safety glass to energy efficient, insulated glass units available in glazed, reflective, mirrored, painted, pattern screen-printed & low emissivity combinations. FGI Group is committed to ‘going greener’ – adopting environmentally friendly practices and supplying leading edge glass products which deliver outstanding energy efficiency and performance. AN IGU (INSULATED GLASS UNIT) Consists of two or more panes of glass bonded to both sides of an aluminium spacer(s) by both a primary and secondary seal to create one unit. The encapsulated space between the panes of glass may be filled with Argon gas to increase the insulating properties of the double glazing units. Low-Emissivity (Low – E) glass Has a thin metallic coating on the glass that reflects thermal radiation or inhibits its emission reducing heat transfer through the glass (similar to SmartGlass). Low E glass reflects the radiation rather than absorbing it, improving performance, resulting in a lower U-value. The lower the U-value the better the performance.
