WELCOME TO SLIM GLAZE IRELAND.

We have invested in the design and manufacturing of these specialist slim double glazed units in order to satisfy the requirements of a low sight line to be fitted in traditional timber frames.

This means that it is no longer necessary for people who live in older buildings not to optimise their insulation. This product provides the alternative to turning on the heating and for people to that do live in an older property to live far more comfortably. Our Slim-glaze uses the latest in warm edge spacer technology. It is psychically smaller than the usual spacer bar and far more attractive. It allows the perimeter margin to be to the minimum meaning it can be glazed in traditional glazing rebates.

The double glazing has an outside border seal from the edge of the glass to the inside of the spacer bar of 7mm + or – 1mm. Units can also range from 11mm to 16mm in overall thickness. Large panes up to 1m2 only can be manufactured using 4mm spacer, for panes over 1m2 please increase the (hollowed-out area) to 6m or 8m depending upon the size of the unit needed/demanded.

 

WHAT IS SLIM GLAZE?

When we talk about Slim Glaze we are talking about our slim double glazed units.

It is somtimes known as Slimline, Slim Unit, Thin Seal, Ultra-Thin, Slimlite, Slender Thin Unit and Slender Pane.

THE BENEFITS OF SLIM GLAZE.
T

LOW SIGHT LINE

Slim Glaze double glazing has a perimeter seal from the edge of the glass to inside of spacer bar of around 7mm.

SUITABLE FOR OLD BUILDINGS

Our Slim Glaze products can be fitted onto older buildings with ease.

MINIMISES CONDENSATION

Our Units will slow to the point where dew point will be reached.

THERMALLY EFFICIENT

U-values as low as 1.2 on a 6mm cavity and 1.1 on an 8-cavity.

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?

In most cases double glazing consists of two glass panes that are placed 20mm apart, the cavity in between are filled with dry air or an inert gas such as argon. This gas reduces the heat transfer through the glass due to its lower thermal conductivity.

The wider the gap between the panes means the lower the heat transfer, up to an optimum level above which circulation patterns in the gas reduce the benefit.

 

 

WE EXCLUSIVELY USE XENON OR KRYPTON IN OUR SLIM GLAZE UNITS

Argon has a thermal conductivity 67 percent that of air, krypton has about half the conductivity of argon, while Xenon is even more so.

The reason these gases are used is due to them being non-toxic, odourless, chemically inert, clear. Therefore by using Xenon or Krypton in our units, we can then greatly reduce the centre pane U-value. This means that you will have the very best in heat retention whilst keeping the overall thickness of the unit thin.

“It is no longer necessary to expect people who live in old buildings not to optimise their insulation. This product provides the alternative to turning up the heating and allows people to live more comfortably in older properties.”
