Double glazing or double glass used to prevent energy loss. A House is made up of various materials. These materials have their own purpose to serve according to their properties. To make your house more efficient the sources of energy transfer should be controlled.

The main transfer source is doors and windows, should be checked for efficiency. Doors and windows profile (Kommerling profile, Profine profile & smart aluminium system) and panels are energy efficient. The highest area in a door or a window is covered by glass so it is of utmost importance that the glass does not transfer much of energy. So to solve this purpose double glazing units are used.

Double glazing units are made up of two glass sheets. In between this double glass sheets there is gas filled in it, commonly argon gas is filled in it. This unit is made up of two 4mm glass sheets separated by a gap of 16mm or 20mm.
To higher the gap the less the conductivity of thermal energy, this gap is filled with inert or noble gases such as Argon, Krypton and Xenon. Commercially Argon is filled in the gap to separate two glazing sheets which acts as a non conducting medium for thermal energy.

These glass units are then sealed from the periphery so as to make the unit air tight. These double glazed units are then installed in doors and windows to make them more efficient and installed as either externally or internally beaded in window and doors.

Maintaining the room temperature and conserving energy via double glass or double glazing unit.
Double glazing window and door is made in PVC, PVCu, uPVC, plastic, hardwood, composite and aluminium materials.
