What do we need to know about glass and double-glazed window frames and why should they be of high quality?
The answer is easy: from the window is the largest heat loss and noise passage through the glass pane and its area is much larger than the window profile area. Placing low-class plain-glasses will make the investment in new joinery meaningless, as both are equally important in terms of thermal insulation, sound insulation, energy savings.
The fact is that wi do not change the windows every day and we in Profil Group recommend that every client should pay special attention to both the joinery and the glass panes.
High heating bills in winter!
High cooling bills in summer!
Too much noise around you! …………………………
Double or triple glass panel?
Double glass – advantages & disadvantages
One air camera / airbag
- Thermal insulation indices for the best combination with one energy efficient glass, argon gas, and warm spacer Ug = 1.1 W / m2k
Sound insulation properties for the best combination of different glass RW: 36 dB
At a lower price is comparing to the triple glazing
Possible thickness of glass pane from 20 mm to 32 mm
Allows it to be installed on larger openable sashes
Triple glass – advantages & disadvantages
Two air cameras / air bags
Thermal insulation indices in the best combination with two energy-efficient glasses, gas argon, and warm spacer Ug = 0.6 W / m2k
- Sound insulation at the best combination of different glass RW: 39 dB. For information 40 dB = Sound reduction up to 94.00%
Possible thickness of the glass pane from 36 mm to 60 mm
The triple glazing is approved under the “passive house program”
Energy efficient glass
К glass – low emission glass
Keeps warmth inside
Recommended for north and east exposure
K glass or also known as low emission; G glass; Low E glass is a special glass with a silver layer, thanks to which the glass pane passes the shortwave radiation (sunlight) and reflects the long-wave radiation (heat) back into the room.
In a more understandable language, this glass Allows the heat to penetrate into the room but does not allow it to come out.
Recommended for northern and eastern premises and is particularly suitable for cold winter months. Thermal losses with this type of glass are reduced by about 50%.
4 season glass – high energy glass
Do not miss the heat from outside during the summer
Recommended for south and west exposure – appropriate for all season
Sound insulating glass
Increasingly noisy cities
Live or work in a lively or noisy place
The other important thing is to install triple glazing again with glasses with different thickness. In the triple glazing, the additional second air chamber is greatly assisted.
Extras and accessories for better thermal insulation and more beautiful look
Warm edge spacer bar
Better thermal insulation
Warmer glasses / less condensation
This is achieved by maintaining higher temperatures at the edges of the glass, which greatly reduces the risk of condensation. Profil Group only puts qualitative spacers with the brand Saint Gobain Swisspacer glass units. The warm edge is one of the most valuable extras in making a new glazing and has many advantages:
Helps to achieve high coefficients of window insulation and makes windows more energy efficient.
Helps to keep your home comfortable.
- Saves heating costs.
- Maintains warm glasses on the inside of the window and so successfully copes with condensation, which is a factor in mold and bacteria that lead to health problems.
Georgian bars – helima
Decorative glazing bars
Give an authoritative look to each building
Profil Group offers 2 options to decorate the glass with a more sophisticated look – Helima (georgian window bar) and PVC glazin bars.
The choice of color and width is a matter of taste and personal choice is of course, but the more sold helium is wide because of the possibility to combine color with woodwork in wood decorations. The fact is that white is a classic and is the best selling.
Special & Decorative glasess
Prevents us from cutting
High security level
Laminated glass are 2 glasses bonded with a special transparent resin, allowing them to retain their overall structure even when broken without falling apart. An example of such glasses is the windscreen of the vehicle.
They are particularly suited to shops, ground and 1st floor apartments, houses or all places where is easily accessible for thieves. The lower parts of large French windows are also fitted with such glasses to prevent an accident with young children. This type of glass is placed on all types of railings on terraces and staircases.
Decors for unique interior
Profil Group offers a wide variety of interior decorative ornament glasses – from classical fully matt glass to over 20 models of glass with different ornaments. These glasses can be used to make a variety of decorative glass panes and cousy interior.
Glass “no drops”
Cleaner… for longer…
Glass with a special Teflon coating that does not allow water to stick and thus the drop can not dry on the surface, and it is the main cause of dirty glass. It is cleaned much less often than the classic one and thus you save time and money. No special maintenance required.
Glass “without drops” is preferred for making glass shower cabins and shower screens, both at home and in spa areas and hotels. It is possible to make double-glazed windows with treated exterior glass for windows in areas such as marine environment with salty air, busy and dusty boulevards and intersections with heavy street traffic, near airports, railways and industrial buildings. A good option is to place hard-to-clean places, use less detergent and help protect the environment.
The Teflon coating does not change color and its transparency is the same as that of ordinary clear glass. Although glass requires minimal maintenance, it should not be treated as requiring any. In addition, there is waste of mineral origin that cannot be cleaned by itself. It can be built into glass, laminated and tempered.
Glass “clear vision”
Glass with greatly reduced iron content, which helps to eliminate the familiar greenish tint of classic float glass. This glass has no shades that distort the colors, has high clarity and light transmission.
Normal classic float glass is high in iron, which protects our home from the penetration of ultraviolet rays. This makes “clear vision” glass unsuitable for exterior use, because with the greatly reduced iron content it will transmit unwanted UV rays. This is the reason why this type of glass is a preferred option for the interior with its strongest quality, namely its crystal transparency just as in the photo above. The most common uses are the manufacture of shower enclosures, glass interior doors, glass showcases for office spaces and shops.
Contemporary architectural design
The Lacobel interior glass meets all contemporary requirements in interior and architectural design.
