This means your seals deteriorate and gaps will form, allowing air and moisture into your double glazed units. Other causes can be when the double glazed unit was not manufactured correctly and poor quality materials were used to seal the glazing, another cause can be the use harsh chemical products to clean your windows, which can deteriorate the window seals and reduce the effectiveness of your double glazed unit meaning that replacement or repair is your only option.

At Sheffield glazing company we only use the best quality when it comes to double glazing our glass is coated using Saint-Gobain, who use a special coating to transforms normal glass into a material that reflects the heat you generate back into your home, rather than allowing it to escape through your windows. The same coating allows free
heat from natural daylight to pass through the glass, capturing it to warm your rooms.
Our products quality is reinforced with our superior laminated safety glass, Laminated safety glass can be manufactured into double glazed window or door units. By process of lamination the glass holds together even when shattered, due to the powerful interlayer, consisting of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), set between its two or more layers of glass resulting in the glass holding together when shattered making it a great security feature the PVB layer also provides great sound insulation while blocking 99% of incoming UV rays.
Alternatively, double glazed window / door units can be made up from toughened safety glass, toughened glass is five times stronger than ordinary glass. It starts off as ordinary glass and is then put through a process of oven and chemical treatment to make it toughened. If broken, the glass shatters into hundreds of small particles that will not injure anyone instead of breaking into large sharp jagged pieces of glass. Because of the processing it goes through it needs to be ordered, and in most cases should be ready in 3-5 working days.

When stained glass is encapsulated into a double glazed unit it not only looks great on the eye but has many other benefits such as efficiency, warmth and noise cancellation not to mention the protection of the stained glass unit between by sitting between two panes of toughened glass protecting the stained glass not just from the elements but also accidents this is a great dual purpose of double glazing.
