The Security Pack for Double-Glazed Windows

Following Saint Gobain’s glazing options, they have simplified the glass choices into a couple of categories.

Saint Gobain’s Security uPVC Glazing Pack adds security and acoustic features to the double-glazed windows in the Yorkshire area. With the same benefits as the Standard Pack, this option maximises your comfort and security. A STADIP layer on the inner pane of Planitherm Total+ glass increases and prevents shattering while dampening sound. The Security uPVC Glazing Pack is designed for summer and winter comfort while also offering energy efficiency benefits. This pack also has boosted UV protection, safeguarding furniture and window dressing from the sun’s harsh rays.

The Security Pack will raise the Window Energy Rating (WER) to a B or even an A when installed on the average window frame. This window configuration also meets all Secured by Design Standards, the industry standard for security and crime prevention. Learn more about the Security uPVC Glazing Pack.

Pack Options

When you select the Security uPVC Glazing Pack, you still have the option to upgrade your window glazing in a few ways. The Security+ Pack includes an anti-condensation coating on the outer pane, which prevents the accumulation of moisture on the window. The Planitherm Total+ low-e glass used in the Security Pack offers exceptional thermal control. However, some windows, like large south-facing windows, would benefit from an upgraded Planitherm One FG on the inner pane. These enhanced options will reflect more solar heat.

Usual Configuration

The Security uPVC Glazing Pack is designed for maximum security. The configuration of this double-glazed window is what makes it so effective at preventing UV light, reducing noise, and controlling comfort. The outside pane is a 4mm Planilux float glass, and the inside pane is 6.8mm of Planitherm Total+ energy-saving glass. The inner pane of Planitherm Total+ glass has a transparent laminate layer of STADIP, a noise-reduction and shatter-resistant material. Between the inner and outer panes of glass is an 18mm cavity filled with insulating Argon gas and separated by a warm edge spacer.
