Double Glazing vs Secondary Glazing

Category: Others/ Misc

Presentation Description

Living on a bustling street or close to the airport can be a headache. Ceaseless noise during the day is not your definition of peace. Which is better at noise reduction, secondary glazing or double glazing? Both types of glazing provide proper protection from noise pollution.


Presentation Transcript


Windows provide us with insulation, aesthetic appeal, and protection against the elements among other things. You may be moving into a new house, or you may be trying to change your windows. This PPT attempts to enlighten you on the type of window finishing you should employ in your home. Glazing improves the quality of your windows by adding insulation which reduces heat flow through the windows. This insulation reduces the cost of heating in your home or at your office. This helps to maximise the efficiency of the building. Glazing also reduces noise and reduces the amount of water that condenses on your windows. Now, let us talk about secondary and double glazing and their effects.

Why You Should Glaze Your Windows:

Why You Should Glaze Your Windows Better Insulation Glazing improves heat retention by adding a layer of insulation to reduce the amount of heat that is transmitted from the environment. This feature also helps to trap heat during colder periods. Noise Reduction The movement of sound in materials differs significantly. The sound effect reduces as it moves from solid to gas. Double glazed windows provide a gap or vacuum that takes advantage of this phenomenon. The intensity and speed of sound waves reduce as they move through double glazed windows.

What Is Secondary Glazing:

What Is Secondary Glazing Secondary glazing involves adding another layer of protection to the inside of your window for some or all of the reasons listed above. This layer of protection can be an aluminium sheet or a sheet of plastic such as polycarbonate plastic. It also involves the addition of another pane of glass to the inner part (of an existing window) of a room or a building. They perform the same duties as a double glazed window. But the extent of their capabilities differ. Secondary glazing can easily be installed if you do not have a building permit for installing double glazed windows.

What Is Double Glazing:

What Is Double Glazing Double glazing involves using two window panes separated by a gap held by a wooden frame or any suitable plastic material. The purpose of this gap between the window panes is insulation. The gap can be filled with an inert gas such as argon, xenon or krypton. Argon is the least expensive of these three and also the least effective. The gap between the panes can also be a vacuum. The gas-filled gap or vacuum between the windows reduces the heat transfer rate from one side of the glass to the other. Let us take a more in-depth look at these two methods of glazing.
