It is now easier than ever before for Synseal fabricators to offer installers triple glazed windows and doors with no obvious alteration to standard aesthetic product designs.
Synseal has launched new triple glazing beads that allow casement windows and doors, made with Legend 70 or Shield PVC-U profiles, to incorporate a 40mm triple glazed unit, whilst SynerJy PVC-U profiles can incorporate a 36mm triple glazed unit.
The new triple glazing beads are available in White, three woodgrains, and 13 Artisan colours.
The primary reason for offering triple glazed windows is that they are extremely energy efficient – they keep homes warmer for longer, and help to reduce energy bills. With the extra pane of glass – and additional air gap cavity – triple glazed windows are also much quieter.
Furthermore, triple glazed windows are more secure than double glazed windows because they are harder to break, especially if the middle pane is made of toughened glass.
“Homeowners are more aware than ever before of the energy saving properties that the right kind of windows can offer a property,” explained David Leng, Chief Executive of Synseal Extrusions. “While today’s double glazed windows are far superior to their earlier designs, nothing wins the homeowner over more effectively than an extra pane of glass, making them the perfect marketing tool.
“In typical Synseal style, we’ve made this an option for Synseal customers thanks to our cleverly designed glazing beads.”
Excellent U-values can be achieved. For example, Synseal’s market-leading Legend 70 PVC-U profiles using the latest 7 chamber inner frames and 5 chamber outer frames coupled with all Argon filled triple glazed unit supplied by Global Glass can deliver a ‘full window’ U-value of 0.8W/m2k or better
