Slim Double Glazing
Technology behind slim double glazing
To achieve an authentic look we use two 4 mm panes of glass separated by a 4mm wide thermally efficient matt black spacer bar, this disguises the double glazing very effectively. The spacer bar has a height of only 6 mm high and can be disguised by a timber bead or a putty bead; this replicates the original single pane style when glazing bars are being used.
The benefit in listed and conservation work is that we can replicate an original frame style and glazing bar style such as Ovolo or Lambs tongue and keep it to the original dimensions.
We provide a special putty that works both with the Micro porous timber coating and with the sealer of the double glazed unit, most commercially available putty’s and sealant will not do this and react with one or the other and it is vital to get a product that can do the job, provide longevity and have visual appeal.
