Double Glazed Windows
Aluminium clad wood double glazed windows
It is common place to see new residences with double or triple glazed windows. Marvin double- and triple-glazed windows are supplied with insulating glazing units (IGUs). Usually, IGU consists of two panes of glass separated by a spacer at the edge, which is filled with air or harmless gas. The spacer determines the distance between the panes and seals the cavity. It must be gas-tight to keep the gas between the panes (typically argon or krypton) from escaping and also to avoid the entry of moisture. Marvin double glazed windows have a Low-E coating on one side of the pane. The Low-E coating faces the air space between the panes, so that the coating is protected from any abuse.
Importance of high-quality windows
Windows give character to a building. Their shape, size, position and materials impact not only the external kerb appeal of a property but also the inside. New or replacement windows must attain aesthetics, economy and performance.
The decision-making process of windows and doors can be quite overwhelming. Their style, efficiency and quality play an essential role in customer satisfaction. Important details such as the amount of daylight that enters the room through the glass can make a difference in utility bills savings and overall comfort of the house.
Badly insulated windows can lose fifteen percent of the heat inside the house. The U-factor value of a window determines the amount of heat that drifts out through the glass. The lower the U-value, the less heat will leave. With heat insulation comes sound insulation. Double glazed windows can dramatically reduce external sounds.
