Glass Types


  • Solar Control Glass

    Our solar glass reduces the heat generated by direct sunlight, while allowing natural light to flood in.


  • Acoustic Glass

    Our glazing features an interlayer between the sheets of glass, stopping noise vibrations from being propagated from one pane to the other.

Glass Type Details

Solar Control Glass

Solar GlassParticularly used for south facing elevations, our solar glass reduces the heat generated by direct sunlight, while allowing natural light to flood in. With patio doors and windows becoming larger and larger, and the extensive use of glass in architecture today, utilising glazing that is specifically designed to prevent solar gain is becoming more of a necessity.

You might think that solar glass is an optimistic choice for the British climate, but large glazed areas can allow for solar heat gain to occur even in temperate regions. If you’re lucky enough to have a south facing garden, and are thinking to install big panoramic patio doors to enjoy it, you should consider specifying solar control glass.

Acoustic Glass

Acoustic GlassNoise can be a real problem particularly in areas with lots of road or air traffic, or if living next to a school or other public institutions. Aside from the obvious downsides such as discomfort and disruption of some daily activities, noise pollution can also have a negative impact on the homeowners’ health, as a consequence of stress.

If you live in a noisy area, then you might wish to consider investing in windows and doors with acoustic glass. The double glazed units feature an interlayer between the two sheets of glass, stopping noise vibrations from being propagated from one pane to the other.

Acoustic glass is particularly in demand for replacement or new build projects in proximity to busy roads, airports, schools or similar establishments, high streets, restaurants and shopping areas, etc.

Sound levels considered normal for human beings are around the 35 decibels mark during the day, and 30 decibels at night. However, every person is different, so if you think that your sleep pattern is often disturbed, or find it hard to focus on certain tasks, and live in an area with high levels of noise pollution, you could benefit from installing windows and doors with acoustic glass into your property.

You can even take noise insulation a step further, by opting for triple glazing. The extra pane of glass will contribute considerably to noise reduction, with great benefits for the comfort of your home.
