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.

HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
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
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.
