The thermal efficiency benefits of IMC Glass Slim Glaze double glazing can now be even better than standard double glazing, achieving U-values (the term used to measure thermal efficiency) of as low as 1.2 on a 6mm cavity and 1.1 on a 8-cavity, depending on the type of gas fill used in the cavity. The reduction of heat lost through the glass is up to 77% as when compared against single glazing and it is possible on some windows to use Slim- Glaze units to achieve the Part L- building regulations for thermal efficiency.
Inert Heavy Gas
The thermal conductivity properties of krypton and xenon are much lower than air, meaning they are much more efficient insulators and are excellent at reducing U-values in sealed double glazed units. All our slim glazing uses these two gases exclusively, meaning you get excellent insulation against both cold and noise.
Continual condensation can seriously deteriorate the lower sections of a timber frames. Slim Glaze double glazed units will slow down the dew point being reached. The inner pane of the double glazed unit is warmer than the outside pane and our warm edge ‘super spacer’ bar acts as a thermal break, stopping the cold reaching the inner pane of the unit. This helps maintain the room temperature when the heating is switched off at night and thereby reduces condensation and heat loss.
