Conventional double glazing isn’t suited to every project. Sometimes the situation calls for the use of specialist glazing; this could be anything from trying to find glazing that can accommodate a cat-flap to sourcing stained glass for a feature window.
Adding different glass designs to your range is a simple way to increase demand for your services and add value to your products. It can also make your product range unique, and help you to tap into a relatively undisturbed market. Here are 5 types of innovative specialist glazing that your customers will be asking you for this year.
1. Solar Glass
Solar control glass, to give it its full name, is used to minimise the effects of excessive solar gain and glare. Using an advanced coating, it works in three ways: it reflects solar radiation back into the atmosphere, keeping a property cool, it transmits a proportion of solar radiation through the glass, keeping a property warm, and it absorbs a proportion of this radiation. This means that solar control glass is able to balance temperature in a room, making it an attractive innovation for south-facing windows.
2. Triple Glazing
Homeowners are coming to view triple glazing as a worthwhile investment to improve the energy efficiency of their homes. Triple glazing is fast becoming a popular product in the industry, and as technology becomes increasingly developed demand is expected to rocket. We supply Planitherm 36mm and 44mm triple glazed units with low emissivity coatings and argon gas filling, to further improve its excellent thermal retention properties.
