Uncovering the possibilities for your aluminium glazing

Glazing specifications explained

Our bespoke aluminium glazing systems are proving increasingly popular, not only because they are aesthetically stunning and enhance the value of properties but the glass itself can be specified to our customers’ individual requirements.

Our glazing options are custom-specified to meet the exacting needs of our clients as well as all necessary Building Regulations requirements.

When we welcome prospective customers to our Hampton showroom overlooking the River Thames, they are always impressed by the level of customisability whether it’s a set of bi-fold doors, fixed frameless glazing, walk-on glass or even a flat roof skylight.

So with that in mind, we thought we’d let you all in on the range of glazing specifications we can supply in our superior product range manufactured by one of the largest aluminium glazing firms in Europe:

Toughened glazing

Toughened glass is up to five times stronger than ordinary glass of the same thickness. It’s great for safety-conscious consumers and also minimises the risk of thermal stress breakage of glazing exposed to solar radiation.

Laminate glazing

Created by adhering two pieces of tempered glass together using a vinyl layer, laminated glazing takes safety standards to an even higher level. In the rare event of breakage, the pieces of glass will actually stay in place; held together by the vinyl layer.

Double glazing

Providing long-lasting, effective insulation for your property, double glazed aluminium windows can maximise external views whilst providing impressive thermal and acoustic insulation between the exterior and interior of the building. In summary, it’s enhanced window energy performance without sacrificing transparency.

Triple glazing

The extra window pane enhances heat retention within your property. Triple glazed U-values reach significantly lower than the double glazing average of 1.6. Triple glazing also makes your property that little bit harder for intruders to break in, with an extra pane offering additional resistance.

Integral blind systems

<p?Integrated blind systems can suit both residential and commercial properties. Encapsulated within your aluminium glazing unit, the blinds are virtually maintenance-free and work with all types of vertical doors and windows. Electrically operated systems are available with numerous features such as solar powered, mains powered and remote controlled.
