A cutting edge window deserves
cutting edge technology.
A window consists of the outer frame and the sealed unit. The frames job is to keep the unit in place and look pretty for as long as possible. The sealed unit is where most of the money saving magic happens it consists, of four main components:
More than likely if you look at the bar connecting your two panes of glass it will be a chrome aluminium strip which is known as a spacer bar. The downside of this is that aluminium is a metal and metal is fantastic at conducting heat meaning that the heat from your house can easily pass through and the cold from the outside can find its way in just as easily. As standard Encore provide a black super spacer bar which is the number 1 spacer bar on the planet, its comprised of composite plastic (which is an awful conductor of heat) meaning that the bridge between your warm home and the cold outside is closed off. To be more specific its over 1000% more effective.
Sealed units come in different thicknesses dependent on which company you buy them from the optimal depth for a sealed unit is 28mm. 4mm for each pane of glass and 20mm for the air gap (which is proven to be the most effective air gap for thermal efficiency and noise reduction). Though this is common knowledge some companies manufacture and fit units as thin as 8mm. More important than the size of the air gap is what its filled with. Inside all of our panes is 100% argon gas, if your not familiar with this, in a nutshell its a low reactive inert gas which acts as a thermal blanket around your house as the market stands this is a good as it comes.
Our panes of glass aren't just 'panes of glass'. Each is specially picked for unparalleled results. On the internal pane we use the latest high performance low-E coated masterpiece from Pilkington. Not only does this pane save you endless pounds on energy bills, save the environment from CO2 emissions and save your house from drafts, it does it all without any detriment to the visibility. Its a win win! win. and another win. The key piece of technology is an invisible film that lays on the inner pane it makes the window act like a one way street by allowing light and heat through the window but is deflected when trying to escape.
The outer pane is known as a Pilkington Optiwhite. It has a plethora of benefits including outstanding light transmission for remarkable visual clarity and purity of colour. This is down to the minimum colour cast in the glass insuring a truer representation of the designers vision. As well as this the glass allows massive heat transmittance meaning more solar gain and less money wasted. When coupled with Pilkington KS glass, an argon glass filling and a composite spacer bar you have an A+ rated window with the same energy rating as glazing giants charging extortionate rates.
