Residence Q&A – What is Double Glazing?

November 21st 2018

The concept of double-glazing dates about to the mid 1800’s when the Scottish used 2 panes of glass to protect themselves from the harsh weather of the Highlands.

Today’s methods in manufacturing double glazing has advanced somewhat. It works by trapping a layer of air between two panes of glass – air being a natural and highly effective insulator. The result being a system that lessens convection resulting in a decrease of heat loss and trapping cold air out.
