Glazed Doors for your Orangery
When it comes to selecting doors, whether they are for external or internal use and whether they are to be fitted to business or domestic premises, there are a number of considerations that should be taken into account and a number of options available. Once the customer has decided that they want glazed doors, there are many further choices open to them.
The second option has been, for a long time, the most popular in double glazed doors. Using two sheets of glass with a layer of air between them is the most common way to manufacture windows and doors and the use of double glazing offers a seemingly safer option along with the added insulation provided by the air pocket.
The third option, which is widely available but not as frequently used due to the high costs involved, are triple glazed doors which tellingly use three panes rather than two with air pockets separating each pane.
Whilst it might be assumed that a triple glazed door might be more energy efficient than a double glazed one, studies have disproved the theory, and surmised that although there is a difference between the amount of heat escaping from a double or triple glazed frame, it is not sufficient enough to justify the cost difference between the two.
The same study, however, found a marked difference between the sound muffling qualities of the two different Glazed Doors and noted “…Installing these units into properties near major roads can increase the value of the home and provide a far nicer and quieter environment for the residents”.
Whenever glazed doors are purchased in the UK, their manufacturer, installation and guarantees are governed by a regulatory body called FENSA. Standing for fenestration self assessment scheme, FENSA is responsible for monitoring and maintaining standards within the glaze industry.
When you deal with an installer from www.orangerycosts.co.uk/what-is-an-orangery it ensures that all products are manufactured in accordance with building regulations and are safe and efficient for the required use. Without the relevant FENSA certificate it is difficult to sell a property that has had any recent glazing work or that contains glazed doors.
