Double and triple glazing is put together as a sealed unit. The gap between each pane of glass works as an insulating barrier, this gap can be filled with an argon or krypton gas for extra insulation. People can often be miss lead into thinking triple glazing is the better option where in fact quality double glazing can be just as effective as triple glazing without the extra weight or cost!
Usually triple glazing will be the better option if your property is situated near a busy road or in loud surroundings therefore would benefit from better sound insulation which triple glazing would offer. Therefore the answer to this question depends upon your home, location and overall levels of insulation. If you’re in doubt as to which is the best option for your home, then contact Active Windows & Doors. We will be happy to discuss your requirements and advise you on the best quality of glazing for your home.

You can do, but it’s not something we would recommend as there’s a good chance it won’t look very good. If you really want to paint your frames then you can buy UPVC primer that makes it easier to paint onto, but once it’s done it’s almost impossible to return to original unpainted effect.
Be aware that by painting or modifying your Active windows will invalidate your guarantee, so give us a call before doing anything too drastic. We do, however, provide a range of window colours to suit all your needs. This includes being able to have different colours on the outside than on the inside, giving you more control over the design of your home.
By its nature, both double and triple glazing offers greater security due to the added strength of extra panes of glass. For windows that open, all windows come with locks that are rigorously tested to ensure they are fit for purpose. Casement, Tilt and Turn and Sliding sash windows are Secured by Design accredited.
Yes, we do. All of our UPVC shaped windows are bespoke and to your specific requirements so you can be confident that unusual shapes can normally be accommodated. Arched, round or simply ‘odd-shaped’, Active Windows can provide the solution in a range of colours and finishes.
We don’t offer self-cleaning glass in any of our windows or doors because it simply doesn’t work! Self-cleaning glass does not yet have a quality standard to measure it against. Self-cleaning glass needs both daylight to activate the coating and flowing rainfall to wash off the dirt effectively. As windows are often sheltered by lintels, arches and overhanging eaves, they would only get a thorough washing-down if struck by horizontal driving rain. These conditions are not in our control and will vary from installation to installation and even window to window. We do not want unhappy customers so are unwilling to promise something that we cannot guarantee will be delivered.
