The thermal performance (W/m2K) of double glazed units will vary significantly depending on the type of glass and insulating gas used as well the glass and spacer bar thicknesses. Typical performance values show below give an indication of how the requirements of Part L (above) can be achieved based on 22mm sealed units for Argon and Krypton gas.
