Why Double Glazing
There are many methods used to form a double glazing system but Double Glazing Conversions ONLY use the highest standard of factory sealed insulating glass units available today.
The most important aspect in the factory manufacturing of the Insulating Glass Units is the integrity of the sealing of the internal air space. Failure of this seal can lead to condensation within the insulating glass unit.
Our high quality Insulating Glass Units are primary and secondary sealed under controlled conditions in the factory.
If requested, an inert gas, such as argon, is used to fill the internal space between the glass panels to further improve the insulation.
The space between the glass panels is created by the inclusion of a hollow spacer bar at the perimeter. This spacer bar, that is filled with a desiccant material, is bonded to both glass panels. The function of the desiccant material is similar to that of silica gel often found inside camera and instrument cases.
Acting through tiny perforations the desiccant will absorb and permanently lock away any residual water vapour resulting in only totally dry air within the sealed space between the glass panels. Trapped dry air is a very good insulator and internal condensation is not possible.
