These are made from two panes float glass sealed around a spacer bar. The cavity between the glass can is filled with air which aids insulation and noise reduction qualities.

Thermal Insulated DGU
Low Emissivity Glass or Low E Glass has a microscopically thin, transparent coating which reflects heat. This Low E coating enables the internal glass of the DGU to reflex warmth back into the room; a bit like an invisible wall, potentially saving you money on ever increasing energy bills. Using Low E glass with Argon Gas Filled units will also increase the efficiency of your window glass.

Solar Control DGU
This glass has been developed to allow the light from the sun to pass through the glass while reflecting and radiating a high percentage of the sun’s heat. Thus allowing the internal space of your home to remain light but feel much cooler than it would normally under the same conditions without solar control glass.
Perhaps to give the best example would be to imagine standing in a green house on a hot day. We all know how uncomfortable that can feel, hot sweaty and bright! Then imagine standing in the same green house on the same day experiencing the benefit from all the daylight, while feeling comfortable at an ambient temperature. That is what solar glass is capable of achieving in your home. It lends it’s self for use in south facing windows and in conservatories too.
Used in conjunction with our Low E glass and Argon gas filled units the efficiency of these windows is much higher keeping your energy bills even lower.

Low Clean Glass DGU
During the manufacturing process a specially formulated cleaning coating is applied to the glass. This coating is fused to the glass and so becomes integral, meaning the cleaning properties applied will last the lifetime of the glass. There is no tint from this coating in fact you won’t even know it’s there until you see glass without it! It works by breaking down external detritus such as sea salt, pollution particles, bird fouling and tree sap on external glass that is exposed to sunlight and rain. Windows, patio doors, conservatories, balconies, overhead canopy glass and even boat window glass can benefit from this low clean product. It really comes into its own when used in those hard to reach areas, meaning less hassle and more time for you to enjoy the view from clean windows.

As the name suggests Acoustic Glass Units are glass units that can considerably reduce noise pollution internally and externally for an improved living or working environment. It lends itself to be used in areas of high sound pollution such as busy roads, air traffic ways, factory and nightclub noise. It also reduces the sometimes deafening sound of rain falling in overhead applications. The acoustic properties are achieved by sandwiching a layer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) between two sheets of glass. This interlayer know as laminating gives the glass a higher density meaning it is hard for sound to travel through it. The laminated glass is used to produce DGU’s with optimum acoustic properties. Please feel free to ask about our range of acoustic glass. We will be able to advise which of our multifunctional glazing products; Thermal, Solar, low Clean and Decorative would be suitable for you.
