Are double glazed windows easy to break?
One of the biggest problems with regular windows is they’re prone to breaking. Not only that, it’s a safety issue when it does occur. You can avoid both of these issues by installing double-glazed windows.
Double glazing is extremely resistant, which means it would require extreme force to break. First, let’s talk about the structure of the glass – the construction isn’t as simple as it once was. Double glazed glass is treated and toughened, so it’s resistant to shock, weather and breaking by human force – e.g. throwing a ball at it.
Secondly, the reason is in the name – it’s double glaze. This means that there are two panes of glass to get through in order for the glass to break. Even if the first pane of glass is somehow broken, the second pane still stands.
Here are a few other reasons why double-glazing is hard to break.
- Its quality profile
High gloss finish surface, high resistance to UV radiation, salty air and heaving winds, high impact strength, does not corrode or rot and are virtually maintenance-free and are termite proof - will last for generations.
- Its triple-chambered profile
Provide maximum insulation against noise or temperature
- Its galvanised steel reinforcing
For strength and rigidity and corrosion resistance
