Let’s take a closer look at how Fineo glass can benefit your property.
Unbeatable thermal insultation

It will literally turn your windows into radiators, providing your home with unrivalled warmth without having to blast your central heating. If you are committed to saving energy at home, this glass would be integral to your strategy, which will impact your bills for the better too. Vacuum insulated glass retains heat better than any other glazing on the market.
Whether your property is traditional or contemporary, using this glass within your home will allow more natural light in than ever before. Fineo glass panels can let an impressive 15% more light into a room which can have such a positive influence on a home, as natural light has a drastic impact on our wellbeing and how we feel within a space. Fans of open plan living will love how the increased light flooding into a space will make the room feel even roomier and for those of you that adore basking in natural sunlight daily, this glass has the technology to benefit you.
Due to the excellent insulation within the vacuum insulated glass the soundproofing capabilities are advanced, resulting in noise reduction that can make your home a peaceful refuge.

One of the most convenient aspects of Fineo’s vacuum insulated glass is that it can be used in multiple scenarios. Are you completely replacing your windows with brand-new double-glazed ones? This glass can be installed perfectly into new window frames so that you can start reaping the benefits as soon as they are installed.
Prefer to keep your existing frames? Fear not, this glass is so thin that it can be easily retrofitted into existing frames too. This is often the case with owners of listed buildings or properties within conservation areas – the building’s style and traditional features often need to preserved. Replacing frames with brand new ones to accommodate double-glazing is often unfavourable and rejected by local planning officers. With Fineo’s thin profile, this isn’t a problem. In fact, we have recently received planning approval from both Westminster Council and Tower Hamlets Council for Fineo installation into two listed properties.
