Curved double-glazed sealed units primary function is to improve the thermal insulating properties of window glazing.
Two or more pieces of curved annealed, laminated or toughened glass is hermetically sealed together using super spacer to create an air filled cavity ranging from 6mm to 20mm wide. The properties in the super spacer dehydrate the air inside the unit and a silicone secondary seal is applied around the perimeter.
The latest thermally efficient warm edge super spacer is used in all our curved double glazed units. Super spacer available in black or white is 950 times less conduction than aluminium and, as most of the heat loss through a window occurs at the edge of the unit, standard metal spacer bars act as a thermal energy drain allowing heat to escape from your home. Super Spacer blocks this escape route.
The thermal insulation can be further enhanced in curved double glazed units by incorporating Pilkington ‘K’ glass and replacing the air in the cavity formed by the super spacer with Argon gas.
Integral spacer bar can be positioned within the air cavity with beading applied to outer surface of unit. Leaded design units are made by applying self-adhesive lead strips to both sides of outer pane of glass.
