What Do You know About Double Glazed Windows?


What Is A Double Glazed Window?

By double glazed windows, we are saying glass windows with two sheets of insulated glass units (IGU) separated by an aluminum spacer filled with desiccant . Each glass pane is 5 or 6 mm thick, with an aluminum spacer and filled with air or gas to feature good energy efficiency and great soundproof and strength. Double glazed windows are frequently used in modern housing for both classic and contemporary styles.

Single Or Double Or Triple Glazed Windows

The glass within the windows is called glazing or glazed or pane. In the past time, many windows and doors tended to use single pane or single glazed windows. However, in modern windows, double glazed is almost the standard glazing options. Single glazed windows have only one sheet of glass, they are bad insulators on heat and cold, let alone the noise and security.

With the increased glass pane, double glazed windows improve the entire energy efficiency. What’s more, there are more possibilities for better quality spacer and with gas filled between the two glass panes to improve the overall energy efficiency. Triple glass are good for cold or extreme climates.

How Could I Make My Double Glazed Windows More Energy Efficient?

With single glazed windows, there are limited ways to improve its energy efficiency, perhaps you could have low-e coatings. Double glazed windows are with an aluminum spacer set between the glass pane to improve the soundproof, heat insulation performance and security . And if we change the aluminum spacer into warm edge spacer, which is made of non-mental materials, we reduce the heat transfer of aluminum. Instead of air, we could pump into gas like argon or krypton to filled into the two glass panes to reduce the heat transfer. Low-e coating, warm edge spacer, gas filled are some of commonly-used ways to improve the overall energy efficiency, without making the glass options into laminated glass or triple glass.

Double glazed windows are commonly used and they are more energy efficient than single pane windows. To know about double glazed windows, you could reach us at ChinaWDMA Windows at https://www.wdma.com.cn/.
