Type of Work
One of our most recent projects at Misty Glaze was a client based 1 mile from Stansted Airport. After our site survey the client was very specific on the results they wanted to achieve.
The existing windows were uPVC and around 15 to 20 years old. External glazed with a clip in bead system and a back wedge gasket on the inside.
We discussed the noise issues from aircraft and the heat loss from the standard existing glass at present. Consisting of 4mm clear float glass on the internal and external panes, separated by a 20mm Aluminium spacer bar.
The client wanted the best glass specification we could get, with the clearest soft coat Low-E Glass. Low-E Glass acts as a thermal property that faces the interior of the window. There are many manufacturers and types available.
The client decided on:
- 6.8mm Stadip silence acoustic laminated glass external pane
- 18mm black warm edge spacer bar
- 4mm Planitherm Total+ Low-E Glass internal pane
- Filled with Argon gas
This level of glass specification would drain the aircraft noise and also thermally insulate the interior of each room. Planitherm Total+ glass is by far the clearest and most discrete of Low-E Glass available, without having any blue tints or haziness in the direct sunlight.
After taking delivery of all 34x double glazed sealed units. All units were fitted on the same day.
Our client was amazed with the results and couldn’t believe the difference in just changing the glass specification could achieve, Three well respected double glazing companies said they would need to change the frames to get the results he wanted and at £20,000 for the full house. Luckily they called Misty Glaze and saved thousands of pounds.
