Architects.

Satisfy planning regulations and your client at the same time with ultra slim glazed units from the Original Glass Company. Our heritage sealed units were developed specifically for use in period properties and listed buildings, giving your project the heritage look with a high chance of gaining approval from Planning Authorities.

Double glazed sealed glass units for conservation areas

We have developed a range of sealed glass units specifically for use in restoration projects, or new build projects in conservation areas. These IGUs can be used in all frame types, and can be used with the traditional putty glazing style for added authenticity (using Heritage Putty).

Our Heritage super thin units are double glazed, and can be made using machine drawn or float glass. We can supply glazed units with a Krypton-filled cavity that achieve a centre pane U-value as low as 1.1 W/m2K. Find out more technical specifications about our sealed units, or why not request a sample?

We understand that every heritage project is unique, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with your specific requirements.
