Different Kinds of the Double Glazing

Type of the double glazing that is suitable may depend on if it is installed for the heat or noise or on type of the window getting double glazed.

The sealed units

The sealed unit replaces existing pane of the glass. This consists of 2 sheets of the glass sealed permanently together around edges with the air gap between it. Thickness of air gap is 6mm to 12mm that means sealed units aren’t best choice for the noise insulation. Thickness of panes of the glass varies, usually from 3 mm to 10 mm.

Secondary glazing

It uses existing window as outer pane. Simplest type of the secondary window is the plastic film, very much similar to film that is used to wrap the food, stretched over window as well as stuck in the position with the double-sided tape. The method is not suitable for the metal-framed windows since air gap will be very small. The plastic film is unsightly and damaged very easily, but it’s cheap, simple to fit as well as good for preventing any condensation. It generally has to get replaced each year from Giovani Glass.


 Double glazing manufacturers now offer a wide range of double glazing types to suit your individual property.

Casement Windows

Example of Casement Windows
Casement double glazing windows are very popular with larger homes as these windows are designed to let in the maximum amount of light. The windows are generally hinged on one side and open rather like doors only they open away from the house rather than inwards towards it.

The advantages of casement windows are of course the huge amount of light you get along with good air circulation through the design of the window. They also come with other options such as dark frames which would suit an older property and leaded glass patterns for a more distinctive look.

Tilt and Turn Windows

These flexible windows have very practical uses thanks to their dual hinge system which allows the window to either open inwards from the side, like a traditional window or from the top, making the job of cleaning your windows a very simple process.

Families with small children will appreciate the security aspect that Tilt and Turn windows enjoy as you can tilt the windows just a fraction, to allow air to circulate but also preventing the window from being opened any wider by curious children.

Larger houses again suit Tilt and Turn windows for maximum light exposure and once again, these windows can be adapted to suit your home with a choice of frames and sizes.
