Many years ago, there was one main type of glass. Now, after countless industrial changes, there is a diverse range of modern glass to choose from, each one having its own significant benefits.
Double Glazed Windows
The Move from Single to Double
From single pane to double glazed windows, we have travelled a long way. Whether you are building a home or renovating, the choice of which windows to go with seems impossibly overwhelming.
Single panes, while cheaper, are not a sound investment. They allow for up to 40% of heat to escape from a house, while also setting the table for other significant problems. First is condensation, then potential floor rot, mould and asthma problems as the water from the windows begins trickling down to the floor and gathering there.
Even past the potential health issues – single pane glass can have your heater running all day with seemingly no temperature change.
Double Glazed Investment
This is where double glazed windows step in. By having two panes and a layer of air between them, they eliminate the potential of condensation, while also regulating the temperature of your house. Even though they can be costly upfront, they will repay their worth through your decreased energy bills.
If you are looking for efficient and modern glass – double glazed is for you. We at Atlas Glass offer a range of double glazing options, from retrofitting to timber glazing.
Acoustic glass can be paired with other types of glass or simply used on its own. Its main advantage lies in its ability to reduce noise up to 50%. If you are in a high-noise environment, near a busy road, primary school or other loud establishments, acoustic glass is an innovative creation that can save you stress and anxiety. As it is able to be applied to other types of glass, it is also an adaptable and high-quality investment.
Also known as Thermal Glass, Low-E glass has been developed to minimise the harmful rays of UV light, without damaging the amount of sunlight that is coming through. Low-E Glass works like a thermos; it keeps the warmth inside during winter and cool air inside during summer, simultaneously ensuring the outside air does not leak inside.
Low-E glass has a very high level of insulation and is best applied as a layer on top of other modern glasses, such as double glazing. Low-E Glass is highly energy efficient and acts as passive assistance with temperature regulation.
