What is Replacement Double Glazed Units?
A replacement unit is much better than a simple repair. When a double-glazing unit is unrepairable then its time for a new unit which replaces the old one. Whether it’s a uPVC door or aluminium door, double glazed window or alu window its known as a unit. The benefit of replacement glazing is, you as a home or office owner will gain a brand new warranty which lasts a minimum of 10 years with upvc and 15 years for Aluminium and means total ‘’peace of mind’’ for you (the buyer). Another replacement type is from pvcu to aluminium which could be down to security reasons or even insurance requirements but at the end of the day, you have total peace of mind with Daylight Glazing.
Whats the difference between residential & Commercial Glazing for Hertfordshire?
The big difference is mainly the brand that is used for office blocks, making the frames and unit types sturdier and more durable than home units. Residential home double glazing has a wider range of brands and products to choose from within the market than a commercial residence would typically have. The most types of doors used in homes are, bifold doors, composite doors, sliding doors, hung windows, sliding windows and bay windows and the most types used in commercial are sliding, panoramic and hung due to security tight and durability.
Regular float glass, typically called annealed glass, is usually used for smaller windows in residential and commercial construction applications. Larger windows should be made using tempered or toughened float glass to enhance durability.
Since float glass is the most commonly used type of glass in the world, its applications are virtually endless. It’s important to note that our Q1 float glass can be used for medium and large windows because it’s thoroughly tempered after the initial annealing process.
Main Features of Float Glass
Transparent and hard – capable of supporting pressures ranging from 5.8 to 10.8 kilograms/cm2.
Available in bulk quantities – made using the most efficient glass manufacturing process.
Easy to work with – comes in flat, uniform sheets that can be easily cut, edged, drilled, polished, and machined.
Smooth and distortion-free – completely flat surfaces. In addition to these core properties, float glass can be toughened and tempered to provide optimal heat and damage resistance.

We provide superb quality leaded sealed units which combine all the thermal, solar control and acoustic benefits of our standard sealed units with classical British styling.
Our glass craftsmen use only the finest quality lead strips to deliver lasting visual appeal. That’s why our leaded glass units feature Rega Lead’s advanced Antique and Platinum coated lead strips which are proven to stand test of time with ease. They will not age or weather, nor will they be subject to the discolouring effects of oxidation. This ensures they will keep the rich, attractive Antique black and Platinum silver appearance in the great tradition of classic window design.
A beautiful addition for entrance doors, conservatory and window top lights, bay windows and fanlights. Stained glass has been a feature of some of the world’s most stunning buildings for centuries, and today’s energy efficient homes can continue that fine tradition with our wide choice of resin-based stained double glazed and triple glazed units.
From the white rose of Yorkshire or a Scottish thistle, to a Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired coloured glass feature or a more creative way to present your house number, our resin design capabilities are virtually endless.
Coloured resins are skilfully applied in one of several ways: by hand, by a pump or using computer controlled machinery (Servo-Cad).
With the aid of the Servo-Cad, we can adjust the line thickness from 2mm to 15mm to allow all kinds of glass designs for windows and doors to be created. Working with our Creative Studio software this has the ability to recreate any design drawn by a felt tip pen onto glass, plastic, wood, aluminium and ceramic whether it be with resin, routed or engraved.
The Servo-Cad can also outline any colour you require ranging from black, gold, silver, copper, white, grey and antique. We also have a clear outline which is known as “glassline” which simulates brilliant cut glass.
Let the light flood into your home as it reflects and refracts off the multifaceted surfaces of each and every bevelled design within our stylish range.
Make a great first impression with a beautifully crafted entrance door featuring our bevelled glass. There is no better way to elevate a humble door into a distinctive architectural feature that may include attractive sidelights or an eye catching, stylishly glazed top light.
Whether you live in a traditional or contemporary home, you’ll discover an extensive range of breath-taking designs created to mirror your personal taste and the unique character of your home.
Back Painted Glass
High quality glass splashbacks and back painted glass add that special appeal to any contemporary kitchen or bathroom, making an impression that other materials simply can’t match.
We supply back painted glass and glass splashbacks in virtually any colour with superb glass clarity thanks to our base material being a low iron float glass. We’ll match any RAL, Syntha Pulvin or Dulux colour code as closely as we possibly can for perfect coordination in any room.
With the colour coating on the reverse, the glass splashback is easily cleaned, very durable and when painted on toughened glass is heat resistant to approximately 200 degrees Celsius – that’s ideal for use behind an oven or wood burner.
Back painted glass can be easily fixed to the wall with mirror adhesive (although products like Gripfill, No Nails etc, must NOT be used under any circumstances). Alternatively, as long as it has been specified at the time of order, the glass can be drilled and screwed to the wall with dome top mirror screws.
