To assist in complying with target emission rates to meet current Building Regulation standards, we are now fitting low emissivity double glazing to windows in our new and refurbished modular buildings.
During the winter months, heat escapes from internal rooms through window and door openings with standard glazing acting as a medium for the heat transfer. Low emissivity glazing however has a specific coating which reflects heat back in to the room whilst letting in additional heat from solar gain.
Target rates can also be further improved with the addition of a low conductivity gas filled glazing cavity such as Argon.
By using low emissivity glazing, building heating costs are minimised and overall emissions reduced.
