Insulating Glass Units


Improve thermal insulation, reduce solar gain, better sound control

Made to measure, high quality insulating glass units manufactured to EN1279-Parts 1-6 within an independently audited factory production control system. We manufacture insulating glass units in a full spectrum of cavity widths, spacer colours, and materials with a choice of inserts including Georgian Bars, Victorian Grill and Duplex Gill. We also manufacture insulated units up to 4500 x 3000mm.

We are able to tailor high-performance glasses to meet your bespoke requirements. When requested we can manufacture from stock high performance insulated units that are engineered to achieve optimal thermal insulation, solar control, sound reduction, fire resistance or that self-clean to name a few.  This allows us to work closely with our customers to provide bespoke solutions to their projects.

We are a licensed processor and fabricator of Pilkington fire-resistant insulating glass units using Pilkington Pyrodur ® and Pilkington Pyrostop ®. Our Fire Rated units are made to the harmonised Pilkington Deutschland AG system description for fire rated products and means we are committed to supplying fire-resistant products according to the relevant standards and regulations.

We also specialise in making insulating units for heritage and traditional joinery. Our stringent standards have enabled us to manufacture or Thinlite range of units for nearly a decade now with excellent success.

Application

Windows, doors, roofs, shop-fronts and commercial glazing, walk-on floors, garden rooms,
fire doors and screens, replacement glazing, refrigeration.

Guidance Note

U-Value

The architect, specifier or Building Control may give you the U-value or
WER for the glazing to achieve. From this information we can give you the
required makeup of the insulating glass unit. Please make it clear if your
U-value is a centre pane U-value for the glass alone or a combined frame &
glass U-value. The size of the rebate, in timber frames especially, is critical.
The height of the rebate must be at least 15mm and the width, thickness
of the unit, plus 6mm for glazing materials, plus the width of the
timber bead (normally a minimum of 12mm).

Light Transmission & Solar Reflectance

The architect or specifier may also state how much light or solar energy they wish to be allowed to pass through the glazing. We are able to provide simulated reports on considered options to enable our customers to choose the specification they require.

Self-Cleaning

An option for high-level areas where cleaning can be an issue. On roofs, pitch is ideally 20 degrees plus for coating to be effective.

Fire Resistance

We are certified and audited to manufacture Pilkington Pyrodur and Pyrostop Insulating Glass Units. Please contact us with your requirements.

Glass Type

We can assemble units with almost any combination of glass type and spacer to meet your requirements. The list of permutations is almost limitless.  Please see our stock list for the materials we hold in stock. We cut, process and assemble our insulting units from stock material so that we are able to offer the most efficient service to our customers.

Spacer Colours

  • Warm Edge spacer: White, Grey or Black (we use matt bars where possible)
  • Aluminium spacer: Silver, White, Bronze, Black or Gold
  • Steel Spacer – Natural
  • Default spacer colours are Silver for Aluminium and Black for warm-edge when not specified.

Heritage Spacer Colours

  • Black and White
  • Cavity widths Aluminium: 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm and 20mm. (others available on request)
  • Cavity Widths Warm-edge: 8mm 10mm 12mm 14mm 16mm 18mm 20mm
  • Cavity Widths: Steel: 6mm, 8mm, 10mm,12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 20mm

Gas-Filled

We can use Argon, Krypton and Xenon gasses to help units achieve the u-values required. The more exotic gasses can be expensive, so we can advise which combination of glass, cavity and gas will best achieve the results you require for the best price.

Georgian, Victorian & Duplex Gill Inserts

Fabricators, installers and joinery shops often need unit inserts to achieve their project requirements.  As such we’re known for having a full and comprehensive range of bar styles and key systems in stock.  What’s more is that we apply the same precise approach to applying bar inserts to that of any other process.

  • Georgian Grill – straight or curved in a variety of colours and sizes
  • Victorian Grill – Gold or Chrome
  • Duplex Bars – the pitch, the dimension of the flat of the bar to be applied is required.  Our advice is that Duplex bars are only incorporated into units that are constructed with toughened glass.  This is due to the risk of thermal fracture associated with annealed glass.

 

(Orders requested with Duplex bars inserted into annealed float or annealed laminated are done so at customers own risk of breakage)

Leaded Units

A self-adhesive lead strip is applied to the inner and outer surfaces of the outer leaf of the insulating glass unit. In squares, diamonds and colour film designs, details with any necessary drawings and colour references are required. Standard designs are available.

A variety of lead widths and profiles are available:

  • Oval – 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm
  • Flat – 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm
  • Others available on request
