The Importance Of Double-Glazing For Security

Windows are great for bringing in natural light, providing ventilation and allowing occupants to enjoy the scenic views surrounding their properties. Another purpose of windows, especially double-glazed ones, is to provide security and prevent intruders from entering. In this article by Salop Glass, we explore how double-glazing can increase the security of your home or business.

More Difficult To Break

While most burglars break in through the front door, the second most common area intruded by burglars is by smashing a window. One of the many benefits of double-glazed windows is that the glass is much harder to break than a single-pane window. This is because double-glazed windows consist of two panes of glass, which are separated by a layer of argon gas or air. This makes it much more difficult for burglars to smash the glass and gain access to your home or business premises.

Reduce Noise Pollution

As double-glazed windows have two panes of glass, this also helps to reduce noise pollution. This is because the two panes of glass are thicker and it can help absorb the sound waves. Double-glazed windows can increase the security of homes located in a noisy area, or an urban area where crime levels are usually higher. 


Not only is double-glazing burglar-proof, but it also has weatherproofing abilities. You can never predict the British weather. It’s not uncommon to see blue skies and dark clouds on the same day. But, one thing is for sure, all types of British weather can have an impact on your windows. With that said, double-glazing is far more weatherproofing than other types of windows. If installed correctly, its weatherproof seals can prevent moisture leaks and chilly drafts from entering your home or business.
