Your new windows and doors should be made uniquely for your home. Here's four good reasons why you should choose Klar for that job:
When it comes to windows, the adage that ‘two is better than one’ definitely holds true. Gone are the days of single-glazed panes for the thermal efficiency and energy savings that double-glazed windows provide, which have been in use since the 1950s in the USA and caught on a couple decades later in the UK. Due to their energy savings over single-glazed windows, windows with double-glazing came into the spotlight towards the millennium since their thermal efficiency supported the regulations in the 1997 Kyoto Protocol.
In 2002, UK Building regulations made double-glazed windows the minimum standard for new buildings. Thanks to their popularity and robust performance, there are now a wide variety of double-glazed window styles to choose from. At Klar, we are happy when our customers are satisfied. Understanding just how important it is for you to personalize your home with the right touches, we provide a wide variety of double-glazed windows styles – all with customisable features. Feel free to take a closer look at our guide, An Overview of Styles of Double-Glazed Windows.
So, what exactly is double-glazing? Well, it is just like it sounds – windows with double-glazing have two panes of glass. The two panes are sealed into a framing structure with a gap between them in a ‘sandwich-like’ construction. This space is filled with an inert gas like argon, xenon or krypton that provides extra insulation and helps to maintain the internal climate of your home.
Since these inert gases do not conduct heat as well as air does, the transfer of heat from inside your home to the outside is prevented. In this way, the inert gas acts as a buffer that provides an excellent protection from having the heat escape through the windows.

If you are looking to purchase new double-glazed windows, chances are that you are searching for the very best options for your specific needs and preferences. The best double-glazed windows are ones that are made with high-quality materials, like the FSC-certified knotfree pinewood that Klar uses to construct all of their premium windows or the alternative alu-clad frames with a powder-coated aluminium finish. The rest is completely up to you – as far as style and choosing among all of the many customisable specifications that Klar windows feature.
You might be thinking that if double-glazed windows provide considerably better energy efficiency than single-glazed windows and help to save so much on energy bills, then they must be a significant investment – and especially if they are made with premium materials. If so, you’re definitely not alone. The truth of the matter, however, may come as quite the pleasant surprise since these days, even the best double-glazed windows don’t have to break the bank.
The cost of new double-glazed windows depends upon various factors, including window style, size, frame materials, level of glazing and other customisable features such as glass types. To give a general price range, on average, the most inexpensive pinewood windows with double-glazing start at only 66 GBP for fixed windows, to a middle-range price of top-guided windows at 172 GBP, to Georgian windows at 332 GBP. Klar’s user-friendly platform makes it a cinch to see the cost of different window styles and customisable specifications.
