How does it work?

Double glazing consists of 2 pieces of glass separated by a 20mm air space, to create an insulating barrier. They vary in energy efficiency and most manufactures helpfully place a window rating energy scheme sticker on their product so you can see at a glance their qualities. The BRFC scheme is the UK's national system for classifying the energy efficiency of double glazing options. These unique labels display information regarding the rating level - between A and E, the solar heat gain and the overall energy rating. For example, 3kWh/m2K indicates that the window will lose three kilowatt hours per square meter annually. A-rated windows are the most efficient.

Styles

There are many variations of frame materials available to choose from. You may be interested in the popular, recyclable uPVC but did you know that double glazing frames are readily available in a wide variety of colours. Composite low maintenance variations combine an inner timber frame with a plastic or aluminum cover which keeps the frame weatherproof. uPVC versions but they do have a lower impact on the environment.
