Trapped layers of air are an incredible effective way of insulating anything, which is why of you wear several light layers on a cold day you will be warmer than wearing just one, because they trap layers of air between them.

Let's take a look at the main components of a double glazed surface area.
Since glass was first invented, people have loved its functionality and beauty. By keeping the elements out and letting the light in, glass provides the perfect visual solution for your home in Wath-upon-Dearne. The glass used in double glazing needs to be a very specific kind to ensure that maximum insulation, noise reduction and light is achieved. Glass will generally need to be 4mm thick. Glass may be clear, tinted or coated, depending on the specific function required of the double glazing.
Tinted glass undergoes a specific treatment that allows the glass to cope with thermal stress, storms and to encourage the reabsorption of heat for highly effective insulation. Coated glass for the purposes of double glazing involves a polyester film that is placed over the glass surface. Double glazed windows that are coated may have a reflective finish or a mirror finish.
The two glass panes are separated by a small segment that allows the air between the two panes to be sealed and to become a vacuum. When a vacuum exists, heat will not travel and disperse - this is how double glazed windows prevent the home from becoming too cold. The spacers themselves are made from non-conductive materials such as foam to prevent heat escaping from the window.
Building the Double Glazed Window
Double glazed windows are customized to fit the particular space requirements. It is also possible to purchase factory standard sizes. The double glazed panes are created and then spacers for each panel are cut and fit to the correct size. The glass panes are carefully cleaned with a special fluid that ensures the surface remains clear. Then, an adhesive is placed on both opposing sides of the spacer and the glass panels are attached. The outside edges of the panel are sealed using silicon adhesive. The glass is coated or finished according to the manufacturing specifications.
