Yes. Fineo’s advanced vacuum insulated technology means that it is only 6.7mm thick and therefore can be retrofitted easily into all timber sash window frames, especially those of delicate period or conservation / heritage buildings.
Will Fineo help reduce the acoustic levels of perceived noise outside?energlaze uk2019-10-25T15:04:50+00:00
Fineo is a vacuum insulated double-glazing created by AGC in conjunction with Panasonic. It consists of two sheets of glass, each as little as 3mm thick with a vacuum gap of 1mm between them. The vacuum creates excellent thermal insulation.
How does Fineo compare to traditional glazing?energlaze uk2020-02-11T15:38:50+00:00
The cost varies greatly from one project to another depending on the complexity (i.e. dimensions of the glass, state of the existing frames, need for a scaffolding etc.). It is therefore difficult to provide an average cost per square meter. To obtain a cost, simply fill in the contact form here and we will be in touch.
What is the U-Value of Fineo?energlaze uk2020-02-25T10:42:49+00:00
The U-value is a thermal transmittance, or the heat loss through a structural element. The lower the value, the better the thermal insulation. The U-value of Fineo is 0.7 (compared to 5.8 of single glazing)
Can I keep my existing sash window frames?energlaze uk2020-02-25T11:04:26+00:00
No. Other vacuum double glazing require a vacuum evacuation port (a black circle on each pane of glass), but Fineo’s advanced glazing technology means that this port is not required — making it more aesthetically pleasing than its competitors.
