What are single and double glazed aluminium windows?

Feb 01, 2021

Aluminium windows are becoming increasingly popular among architects, designers and homeowners as they contribute significantly to energy efficiency and are relatively easier to clean and maintain. Being highly recyclable, aluminium is considered as one of the most sustainable building materials in the construction industry and brings along several advantages over its traditional substitutes.

Glazed aluminium windows and doors help enhance energy efficiency and regulate thermal insulation. Glazed windows are those windows that have multiple panes of glass and a vacuumed space, often filled with an inert gas, preferably argon between them. This inert cavity is responsible for trapping heat and preventing its conduction from the indoors to the outdoors and vice versa.

Glazing in aluminium windows

Glazed aluminium windows also come with primary and secondary seals that are specifically designed to contain the heat and reduce the noise, in a far more superior way than other regular window systems. Primarily, aluminium glazed windows are made available in two major glazing options- single glazing and double glazing.

Single glazing

Single glazing is when there is only a single pane of glass. As there is just one pane of glass, the thermal and noise reduction capacity is considerably reduced. This also compromises on the security of the glass to some extent.

Double glazing

With a capacity to provide double the insulation as compared to single glazed aluminium windows, double glazed aluminium window frames consist of two panes of glass separated by a layer of inert gas. Additionally, double glazing your windows also significantly decreases noise pollution, thus soundproofing your indoors from outside noise.

Advantages of glazing

  • Soundproof your indoors
  • Enhanced security and safety
  • Save on high electricity bills
  • Keep the summer heat at bay
  • Water-tight

The inert cavity present between the panes of these aluminium glazed window frames helps absorb sound and the extra pane works as an excellent buffer to the noise. When looking to install aluminium glazed windows, you can choose between single glazed aluminium window frames or double glazed aluminium window frames depending on the specific requirements of your space, the need for insulation and even your geographical location.
