ACA Double Glazing

Double glazing is a way of creating an insulating layer between two panes of glass. This insulating layer can be normal air or special heavy gases.Usually noble gas is used between the two insulated glasses to prevent the transfer of heat or cold. ACA Double glazing lets in as much sunlight as single-glazed windows, but holds in the heat much better.

ACA Double glazed windows:
- can halve the heat loss through the window
- significantly improve thermal comfort of your home
- reduce external noise, and
- reduce condensation build up in cold weather.
