Both of these methods work extremely well as an alternative method to double glazing and are available in different thicknesses.
Single glaze Low E glass consists of a thermal coated layer to the internal face of the glass allowing natural light emission without emitting radiant heat thus maximizing energy efficiency. This glass works well for heating in winter and cooling in summer and also minimizes UV transfer which will protect furniture and timber floors. Low E glass can also be laminated or toughened depending on location or application to achieve your desired result.
Hush glass is a laminated glass product consisting of 2 single layers of glass adhered together with a 0.5mm thick laminated interlayer creating great noise/sound reduction.
