Sealed Double Glazing Unit
A sealed unit, also known as ‘double glazed unit’ or ‘insulated glass unit’, is made up of two panes of glass separated by a spacer cavity. There are many different variations of this method, but one thing that they all have in common is that they are perfect for thermal insulation – retaining heat in winter and keeping cool in summer, saving energy all year round.
Sealed units are typically produced with a with silver aluminium spacer, but black and white are also available. We provide a range of thicknesses, tailored to suit every frame. Below are some of our favourite sealed units produced here at Sirius Glass.
Slimline units are normally used in cases where the window frame is too thin for a standard sealed unit. We use Edgetech’s 3mm ‘Super Spacer’ which allows us to produce an ultra slim 12mm unit.
