What Is Double Glazing ?

Double Glazed Glass is usually constructed from two pieces of 4mm glass and a silver, bronze or black spacer bar.

The idea between this construction is that a thermal break is created between the two glass panes which slows the transfer of heat from the inner to outer pane.

Spacer bars are filled with Desiccant, Desiccant is a substance which is designed to remove moisture from the air therefore greatly reducing condensation.

Additionally, in the case of A-Rated Glass the thermal break is then filled with Argon Gas which further promotes the energy saving properties of the unit.
