Six Technological Advancements of Double Glazing You Probably Didn’t Know About

Here in Australia, Double glazing has been increasing in popularity in the past few years. Homeowners like the effective way it improves the energy efficiency and comfort of any home. And with the rapid development of new technologies, the future of double glazing is looking even more promising! Scientists and architects are constantly looking for new ways to improve the world, and here are just eight technological advancements to look out for in the world of double glazing.

Smart Glass

This type of glass allows for the opacity of the windows to be adjusted at the touch of a button, reducing glare and heat build-up in a room. It can also be controlled remotely via a smartphone or tablet. How cool is that?

Self-Cleaning Glass

This is glass that is finished with a special coating that causes dirt and grime to break down and wash away when it rains. This means less time and effort spent on cleaning your double-glazed windows.

Low-e Coatings

This microscopically thin coating is applied to glass and reflects infrared rays, keeping heat inside in the winter and out in the summer. This improves the already impressive energy efficiency of double glazed windows and can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs!

Vacuum-sealed Glazing

This emerging type of window glazing uses a vacuum seal between the two panes of glass. Currently, most double glazing have inert gases like argon or krypton in the gap, but using this means there is nothing. The gap becomes a vacuum and maximises the insulation and soundproofing qualities.

Glass With Interlayered Plastic Film

This type of glazing uses a thin layer of plastic film sandwiched between the two panes of glass, which improves insulation and soundproofing. It also makes the glass stronger and more durable.

Dynamic Glazing

This is a smart window technology that adjusts the window from clear to tinted when a small amount of voltage is applied. This can even reduce energy consumption when paired with low-e glass, and thus lower your power bill.

The future is here with double glazed windows and doors! There are always new and exciting technologies being developed for double glazed glass, and more is surely yet to come. So, to improve energy efficiency, reduce costs, and increase the comfort and functionality of a building, make the switch to Ecostar Double Glazing today!
