How Are Double Glazed Windows Made?

You may be wondering ‘how are double glazed windows made?’. The uPVC frames are made in moulds and cooled to maintain their shape. Once they have become hard again, they are cut to different specifications and the individual sides are put together.

The glass panes are fitted, and an inert gas is filled between the layers to prevent condensation forming and moisture getting between the glass. Finally, the window frame is sealed to create the final product. These are then installed into your home!
