Vacuum-insulated double glazing surpasses triple glazing in insulation properties while maintaining a slim profile, allowing it to be installed within original wooden window frames seamlessly.
Opting for VIG glazing enables homeowners to significantly enhance their window’s thermal insulation without the inconvenience of replacing existing frames or sashes, ensuring a blend of high efficiency with aesthetic preservation.
When upgrading to new vacuum glazing for existing sash windows, it’s crucial to ensure that the frames are adequately prepared to handle the additional weight.
This process involves a meticulous inspection and reinforcement of all the joints, guaranteeing that they are strengthened and capable of supporting the heavier glazing.
Any signs of rot within the frame must be thoroughly addressed, with damaged wood removed and repairs made to restore the integrity of the window.
Furthermore, depending on the weight difference, counterweights may need to be adjusted or added to maintain the smooth operation of the window sashes.
Installing draught-proofing seals into sash windows is an essential step towards improving the energy efficiency of a home.
These seals are designed to eliminate the gaps that allow air to pass through, preventing unwanted draughts from entering and warm air from escaping.
During the installation process, the window sashes are carefully removed and the draught-proofing seals are integrated into the grooves of the frame.
This creates a tight seal that reduces air leakage.
