Slimlite Double Glazing Supplied & fitted in Brighton & Sussex.
Timber has been used in window construction extensively for the past decade because of its best insulation properties a construction material can provide. The only disadvantage is its maintenance making people to suddenly push for the maintenance free U.P.V.C windows.
Most windows made of timber, both the recent and the past, have not been accepted by Planning Authorities as Graded or Listed buildings or even for conservation. This is because of single glazing. This is because double glazed units cannot be glazed into astragal timber windows. This is particularly the bulky standard 10mm perimeter seals.
As timber window manufacturers, we have many possibilities opened up by the new innovative Double Glazed Slimlite Ultra Self Cleaning Units.
The Slimlites fit into the astragal rebates normally 7mm depth preventing the 5mm visibility of the overall perimeter seal. This will remove the necessity of inducing a �Georgian Look’ effect on the double glazed standard unit by applying adhesive astragals. The 12mm Slimlite overall thickness with 6mm or more front putty is accommodated by the 20mm width rebate astragal. (Pilkington UK Technical Bulletin Ref M17 Date October 13th, 2011)
Slimlite fits into any single glazing rebates hence its huge potential of replacing single glazed windows. However, rebate standards tend to differ in England and Scotland hence routing of about 3mm is necessary from the rebate maintaining the windows’ physical appearance.
Most single glazed timber windows have at least 7mm rebate depths and approximately 20mm glazing rebate width.
The 5mm depth, 12mm thick perimeter seal New Tech Slimlite Ultra Self Cleaning Double Glazed Units have the ability of glazing into single glazing rebates manufactured for slim astragal appeal maintenance. They are undetectable when glazed to a timber window.
The Slimlite Ultra Clear Self Cleaning Double Glazed Units should be opted for by Governments in Graded or Listed and Conservation Buildings to curb carbon IV oxide emissions as the window’s physical appearance remain the same, providing a huge reduction in energy requirement thus CO2 emission reduction.
