We continually strive to make sure our whole business is as environmentally friendly as possible, which is why we offer South East homeowners the most sustainable, energy efficient windows and doors we can. The glass units we use play a crucial part in the overall sustainability of the installation. So, if you’re wondering how sustainable modern window glass really is, we’ve created this blog especially for you!
Yes! Glass is renowned throughout the world as one of the most sustainable building materials available. Made from raw sand, soda ash and limestone that has been exposed to extreme heat, glass is 100% recyclable with no loss of quality whatsoever.
It is a common misconception that triple glazing is the most energy efficient glass for windows. Although it contains an extra layer of glass alongside another insulating gas-filled cavity, the embodied carbon penalty involved in the manufacturing process of an average triple glazed window is around 59%, 46% and 31% higher than timber, uPVC and aluminium double-glazed units respectively. Therefore, normal double glazing will more than suffice with high-performance Comfort glass. Combined with insulating uPVC frames or contemporary aluminium frames that feature plastic thermal breaks (like ours!), we offer some of the most sustainable window glass available.
