Slim Glaze Heritage by Rathmines Glass
Our Slim Glaze Heritage double glazed units are the most modern double glazed units on the market today in Ireland. Specifically designed to fit into narrow sash window frames. This newly developed system has very slim double glazing making it suitable for the traditional timber widows of period houses.
The majority of these period houses in Dublin and throughout Ireland are under protective orders. This means that the owners are not allowed to alter the exterior of the building. These older buildings are usually fitted with single glazed windows which have very poor heat retention abilities and are not energy efficient. This leaves many homeowners living in cold and draughty homes.
Our Dublin manufactured Slim Glaze Heritage unit is the solution to all of these problems.

A joiner / carpenter will route out the timber frames and remove the old single glazed windowpanes. Our window technicians are then able to install these super thin double glazed units. Either at our premise in Rathmines, or onsite at your home or business.
