Standard single glazed windows consist of only a single pane of either 4mm or 6mm glass. Double and triple glazed windows consist of 2 and 3 panes respectively. ARCO’s standard double glazed unit is made up of 4mm Low-E glass on the outer pane followed by a 16mm Argon gas spacer and then 4mm clear glass. Depending on your requirements we can make units with various combinations included laminated glass.
We only use uPVC profiles for our windows and doors because we find that they have superior thermal and sound insulation properties over traditional timber and aluminium frames. They are also salt-water resistant and require very little maintenance.
Yes, our double glazed windows can reduce outside noise by up to 70%. The uPVC frame combined with the double layer of glass and Argon gas spacer work together as a noise filter to create soundproof insulation.
We use Deceuninck profiles which offer 8 different colours: white, cream, golden oak, nut tree, anthracite grey, grey aluminium and ash black. In combination with painting companies, specialised uPVC paints and applications, we can offer a far greater range of custom colours.
