It is no longer necessary to expect people who live in old buildings not to optimise their insulation. This product provides the alternative to turning up the heating and allows people to live more comfortably in older properties. The Slim-glaze uses the latest in warm edge spacer technology. It is physically smaller than a contemporary spacer bar and more attractive. It allows the perimeter margin to be kept to a minimum so it can be glazed in traditional glazing rebates.
The double glazing has a perimeter seal from the edge of the glass to the inside of the spacer bar of 7mm + or – 1mm. Units can also range from 11mm to 16mm in overall thickness. Large panes up to 1m2 only can be manufactured using 4mm spacer, for panes over 1m2 please increase the cavity to 6m or 8m depending upon the size of the unit required.

WE ONLY USE KRYPTON OR XENON IN SLIM GLAZE UNITS
Argon has a thermal conductivity 67 percent that of air, krypton has about half the conductivity of argon, while Xenon is even more so.
These gases are used because they are non-toxic, clear, odourless, chemically inert. So by using Krypton or Xenon in our Slim-glaze units we can greatly reduce the centre pane U-value meaning that you will get the very best in heat retention while keeping the overall thickness of the unit thin.

From the basic glazing 4mm and 6mm float and laminate products through to the more specialist products such as fire safety glass range, Pyroguard, Georgian wire, Polished Plate and Stove Glass.
In recent years we have become Ireland’s number one manufacturer of Slim Glaze double glazing, super slim units which start from 11mm in thickness and are filled with krypton gas to ensure maximum energy efficiency.
Our Slim Glaze unit has become the number one choice in many prestigious jobs across Ireland and can be found in Queen’s University, Coolmore Stud Farm, Dublin National Gallery, U.S Ambassador Resident, Dromoland Castle, Ashford Castle and many more high end listed building’s across Ireland and the UK.
JUST HOW SLIM ARE OUR SLIM GLAZE UNITS?
Our Slim Glaze units start at just 11mm overall thickness…about the diameter of a Biro.
