Thinlites are made-to-measure insulating glass units used in heritage and restoration projects to replace single-pane glazing in traditional joinery while improving insulation properties.
For use when you need the overall unit thickness and sightline to be as low as possible. Thinlites can be filled with Xenon, Argon or Krypton gas depending on your U-value requirements.
With a decade of continuous manufacturing under the same production controls, Glass Services Ltd has supplied tens of thousands of units to the joinery and restoration trades. In recent years, slim double-glazed units have attracted a bad reputation due to a number of manufacturers offering unrealistic sightlines, alongside a generally poor standard of fabrication. This results in premature breakdowns and fogging.
Our Thinlite units have an 8mm sightline – we have worked closely with joiners who advised us this can be feasibly accommodated into most traditional sash windows and doors; offering a suitable balance between sightline and seal depth. Alongside this we have the traceability and history to prove it is a robust product, that succeeds in its application. Thinlites benefit from a five year warranty when correctly glazed to our instructions.
