What is retrofitted double glazing?

Retrofitted double glazing simply means that we install double glazing in your existing window joinery. Our Dualglaze system may not require the removal of your window joinery or for you to move out of your house.

Double glazing is a window made up of two panes of glass spaced apart and sealed to be air tight. The glass panes trap a layer of air between them. The double glazing units work as both an insulator (for retaining heat and preventing cooling) and an acoustic buffer.

The air space between the two glass panes can be varying widths between 6mm to 12mm and can also be gas filled. The wider the gap, the greater the thermal and acoustic benefits. The air between the glass panes can also be replaced with Argon gas which provides even further insulating qualities than air.

Performance of Dualglaze can be enhanced by using different combinations of glass types. Your Dualglaze consultant can advise you of what type of glass is best for your home.

Can you replace existing windows and doors?

Yes. Dualglaze can supply complete replacement window and door joinery, with double glazing, to update and enhance your home’s appearance.
