Misting or Fogging of sealed units in double glazed windows is a common problem and most often occurs after the guarentee on the units has passed! Misty or Foggy windows can make a room look awful but repairing or replacing the sealed units is no longer a big problem.
The panes of glass used in double glazed windows are called sealed units. The panes are kept apart by a spacer bar which contains hundreds of tiny silica balls.
These same balls can be found in the little bag you receive when buying electrical goods and also in the trays bought from DIY stores which are placed on window cills to prevent condensation.
It is these balls which soak up any moisture which exists in the air between the two panes of glass.
Once the silica becomes saturated the moisture in the air will begin to mist, or fog up your double glazing.
This should not happen for at least 5 years from the date of installation and you should have a receipt from your double glazing company to guard against sealed units "breaking down". Most companies offer a 10 year guarantee.
Windowrepairer.com can replace these units and provide a no fuss 5 year guarantee against any failures
Thieves have devised methods of snapping these types of cylinders locks in a matter of seconds and still be able to operate the lock to open the door.
This threat can be considerably reduced simply by upgrading the cylinder to one that is specifically designed to prevent this method of attack. We recommend that all vulnerable doors using Euro-Profile cylinders be upgraded to incorporate 'Break Secure' cylinders.
Euro cylinders are mainly fitted to uPVC doors but some aluminium and wooden doors also use this type of lock.
