Cornwall Glass produces some of the largest Insulated Glass Units in the UK.

Our bespoke insulating glass units can be produced with a wide variety of finishes in an almost limitless variety of shapes. We can provide IGUs with Low E coatings to reduce heat loss and enable glazed facades to conform and exceed building regulations. With the addition of a solar control coating, the units we produce also act to reduce solar gain. Our IGUs will also minimise, or eliminate the need for an air conditioning system, reducing running costs of the building and saving energy. All our IGUs are available in a variety of glass types depending on your safety and security requirements, and can be combined with other benefits such as noise control.

Secondary Glazing

Film coated glass with excellent thermal properties. Ideal for use in conservatories. Ask about our Solar Glass options.

Solar Control Glass

An insulation and external noise reduction alternative for properties where Heritage Range isn’t suitable. Secondary Glazing discretely sits inside the existing window unit allowing the original features to remain.

Super Slim Seal Units

The table below shows all the variants for the Heritage range. Units are produced to individual design and specification. Heat loss from buildings is measured by a U value and is expressed in W/m2k. The lower the U value the better the insulation provided by the relevant material. As a comparison, the U value for a typical pane of single glazing is 5.8.

Westcountry Heritage

West Country Heritage units have been designed and developed at our Plymouth Branch. These super slim units are for use in listed and period properties. Slim unit cavities enable the double glazing to be installed providing the benefits of double glazing to older properties. We can supply only or supply and fit for any restoration or replacement project. Please call to discuss your requirements.
