Double glazing works by fitting two panes of glass within a lightweight, reinforced uPVC frame. The measurement has to be precise! Too much and the technology simply won’t work.

A thin layer of air is trapped within the frame, creating what is commonly known as a thermal blanket. The stationary air particles prevent cold air from gaining access to your home, and warm air from leaving.

Answering the Question

In case you’re in a hurry, we’ll quickly answer our earlier question of what makes aluminium bi-fold doors the favoured choice over a plastic set. Aluminium bi-fold doors have gained such popularity because they do everything a plastic bi-folding door will do, just that little bit better.

One effortless operation of our aluminium bi-fold doors and you’ll realise what we’re going on about. Our aluminium doors offer superior functionality, designed with your security and expensive energy bills in mind.

The difference between plastic bi-fold doors and aluminium bi-folding doors is like the difference between a fast food cheeseburger and a freshly prepared gourmet one. In essence, they are the same the thing. One bun, spurt of sauce, couple of pickles, bit of beef and cheese.

But which would you rather have? A relatively tasteless treat, served with a sweaty bun in a noisy restaurant. Or, a freshly made peppered steak meat burger, complete with homemade bun, light melted French cheese with crunchy peppers, big slice of tomato served on a heated plate with views of a harbour.

Possibly not the best analogy, but it’s near lunch time and we’re all peckish.

How Does Double Glazing Work?

Might sound like a bit of a no-brainer, but we feel it’s important for all of our customers to know a little about the technology behind double glazing.

We like to think of double glazing as the little miracle for the home improvements industry. Double-glazing reduces your expensive monthly heating bills, eradicates a noticeable amount of noise pollution and improves the security of your home. Even without mentioning the robust compact steel locks that grip the window to the frame.

Double glazing works by fitting two panes of glass at an optimum distance, the measurement of this space is vitally important to ensure the energy saving values are as effective as they possibly can be.

energy efficient double glazing

The two panes of glass enclose a layer of air between them. The space is too small to allow the air to move about, if it did the particles would expand and contract allowing air to flow through effortlessly. Instead of doing this, the air remains in the same place, creating what is known in the industry as a thermal blanket.

This thermal blanket prevents unwanted cold air from passing through, and traps your warm expensive heating inside. Thus utilizing your homes energy performance, and decreasing your expensive monthly heating bills.

Finally, fancy having a guess at how much energy your home can lose from bad quality windows and doors? Suprisingly, research carried out by the National Insulation Association has shown poor windows and doors can be responsible for a whopping 20% of your homes total energy wastage. This is a tremendously high number, amounting to an unnecessarily high heating bill.

Double Glazing and Security

Marathon Windows prioritises your home’s security over anything else. Why? As professional home improvement experts it is our duty to ensure that our products are fitted as securely as possible. Creating the safe home you and your family deserve. Does double glazing improve the safety of your home?

In a word, yes. Double glazing enables us to be able to cleverly design your windows, doors and conservatories to maximize your home’s security. Ever heard the phrase ‘out of sight, out of mind?’ – Of course you have, and it’s this commonly used phrase that perfectly summarises double glazing and security.

Double glazed windows Surrey

Let’s examine single glazed windows for a second. The lock can either be on the outside or the inside. So, thieves could either break the window and hack the lock; or just hack the lock and have done with it.

Double glazing allows us to be able to fit locks and hinges inside your window! Totally unreachable, safe behind toughened and reinforced glass. Plus, all of our windows are internally beaded, fixing the glass to the frame. Making the pane impossible to remove.

Parting Words from Marathon Windows

The majority of buyers make up their mind before they even enter your home, make a lasting impression.


Maintaining Your Composite Door

Unlike timber doors, on which our composite doors are designed to replicate, composite doors require little to no maintenance to in regards to keeping their effortless operation throughout their life. Essentially, composite doors succeed in housing everything that makes wooden doors attractive whilst losing their difficult upkeep.

When you invest in a composite door you’ll never need to set aside a weekend to renovate it by removing the door from the hinges, damaging your dicky hip in the process and returning the now ill fitted door because you got the measurements wrong. Unlike traditional wooden doors, our composite doors are simply unaffected by harmful and corrosive weather conditions. Your composite door will never rot, become misshapen ad lose their colour.

The most you’ll ever have to do to one of our composite doors is give the concealed hinges a wash off with hot soapy water once in a while. Just to remove any dirt and grit which inevitably builds up through general wear and tear. Asides from this, we guarantee that your composite door will retain its thermal and security values for many years to come.

Energy Saving Technology That Works

Perhaps the main reason customers opt for composite doors over cheaper plastic alternatives is the energy saving technology which they contain. If you’re looking to save money on expensive energy bills, this is the perfect door for you!

Fancy hazarding a guess at the percentage of energy waste an ill fitted, or badly constructed door could cost you? 5% perhaps, 10% at a push. Nope. It’s way higher! Alarmingly a study carried out by the National Insulation Association shows that a poorly fitted door could be responsible for up to 20% of your total energy bill.

Composite doors contain rigid foam insulation core and solid GRP outer layer to retain your homes energy, which help to reduce your monthly energy bills. Our entire range of composite doors come with a standard B rating! To put things simply, our composite doors retain up to six times more heat than cheaper plastic alternatives.

Why Invest In A Composite Door?

Composite doors are a drastic upgrade to plastic alternatives. They are designed to withstand corrosive weather conditions, improve your Epsom properties security and require minimal maintenance throughout their long life. Keep your home secure and save money on your expensive energy bills by investing in a composite door this Winter.

A composite door is like a traditional timber door, wearing a suit of armour. They are designed to capture the simplistic and attractive looks of wood, minus the drawbacks of old fashioned and outdated doors. By this we mean that, unlike wood, a composite door will not rot or warp.

Therefore you don’t need to set aside 4 hours of your precious weekend to ultimately end up spraining your back and cutting your fingers open by removing the door and planing it level to the frame.

So, why won’t you end up in A and E when you invest in a composite door? Composite doors are made to last, meaning that you will not need to experience the trauma of removing a door and working on it in your free time. In fact, after our in house team of professionals have installed your door, you’ll never need to paint, varnish or treat your door. The highest quality, guaranteed for an entire decade.

Composite Doors and Energy Efficiency

We don’t need to tell you just how important it is for everyone to play their part in the well being of the planet. What’s fact is every small, environment conscious act snowballs to big change. Choose environmentally friendly solutions, help to eradicate global wastage and lower your expensive heating bills. Composite doors are built to last. Built to resist harsh, cold weather conditions. Built to keep warm air inside and the cold winds out.

Alarmingly, research has proven that as much as 20% of your heating simply passes through ill fitted windows and doors. What are your yearly heating bills? £1200? £1300? Let’s take the latter as an example, working our way forward, using the statistic as an example.

£1200 heating bill per year, with a 20% loss through poorly fitted and inadequate windows and doors. Per month, you essentially open the door walk over to a drain, open your wallet and drop a tenner in it.

You do that every month, and that’s your car insurance sorted for the year. You do that for the entire guarantee of your brand new energy efficient composite door, and that’s a staggering £1200 pounds! Or, a cheeky all inclusive summer holiday in Barcelona for yourself and partner.
