You must have heard of double glazed windows due to their eco-friendly and energy-efficient benefits. How many years has it been since you updated your windows as per the latest technology? Many industries are primarily focused on creating products that are good for your home and our planet.
A double glazed window simply means a window with two parallel panes of glass. There are even triple-glazed available in the market with three panes instead of a single one. These two/three panes are separated by space, which can be left as a vacuum or can also be filled with an inert gas such as Argon, to improve insulation. This space typically ranges from 6 to 20mm, however, a minimum space of 12mm is recommended for optimal thermal performance.
Low-e and thick laminated glasses are often used in double or triple glazed windows. The only disadvantage of replacing your windows with double glazed ones is the higher cost as compared to a single pane. Given below are the advantages of such windows as compared to traditional glazing.
