All Purpose Glazing, Based in Derry City, Northern Ireland have now introduced the use of argon gas, with measurable improvement in thermal performance.
Argon is a noble, inert gas which is inexpensive, nontoxic, nonreactive, clear, and odorless. It is a naturally produced gas which is already present in the air we breathe. Furthermore, Argon is the most plentiful of the inert gases, representing 0.9 percent of Earth’s atmosphere. It is environmentally friendly.
The advantage of having argon gas between the panes of glass is simple, argon transfers less heat than air does.
Argon has a lower U-value because it is denser than air, so it conducts less heat. A double-glazed window with argon
loses less heat than a double-glazed window filled with air.
Argon Filled UPVC Windows help reduce the amount of solar radiation coming through the glass in hot climates, while maintaining a higher interior temperature during winter. The higher temperature of the interior glass surface also helps to reduce frost and condensation.
