Double Glazing for Windows & Doors

Double glazed glass options for draught and sound-proofing your home.

Specialist Double Glazing Services

Double glazing works by using two panes of glass within the one sealed unit, this insulated space between the panes of glass is filled with argon gas that creates a highly efficient layer of insulation that reduces heat transfer between the inside and outside. Not only does this help draught and soundproof your home, but it helps prevent condensation, as the internal pane of glass remains closer to room temperature.

Despite being such simple improvements, the real-life benefits of effective draught-proofing windows and double glazing all translate into enormous savings on energy bills – some researchers stating as much as a 25% decrease, just by draught-proofing alone.

Our double Glazing incorporates 4mm Toughened Low E Glass and a 4mm Soft Coat (energy efficient) Inner Pane and the unit is argon filled, which is not only a subtle transformation but is aesthetically pleasing and in keeping with the traditional style of timber windows and doors.

All the double glazing that is offered by The Specialist in Traditional Sash Windows has a low-level U-Value, which helps to retain the heat in your property. Each window will have a U-Value of 1.5 or less, which achieves current building regulations and all units have been tested and certified to this level.

Even if you live in a period property with original box sash windows still in place, we are experts in upgrading homes to reap all the benefits of modern double glazing while retaining the traditional aesthetic.

The benefits of double glazing vs single glazing:

Double glazing is…

  • Designed to keep heat in your home
  • Much more secure – Harder to break and, if you do break it, will be less likely to break into long and dangerous shards.
  • Double glazing helps reduce noise
  • More compliant with building regulations – Building regulations now state that all new build houses must be fitted with double glazing, instead of single glazed windows. These ‘thermal performance standards’ came into effect in April 2002, as part of a move to prevent household energy inefficiencies.

Other glazing options we offer:

  • Acoustic glass – to help further reduce sound ingress be it voice, road, plane or train
  • Toughened or laminated safety glass
  • Sandblasted (Satin) glass – for privacy in bathrooms, etc.
