The crystals or double glazing exploit the fact that air is a poor conductor of heat. They are made of two sheets of glass separated by a layer of air or gas, such as argon, which is even worse a conductor of heat than air.
There are different thicknesses for example “4/16/4”, “4/12/4” or “4/6/4”. These figures represent the thicknesses in millimeters of the constituents of a double crystal. For example, “4/6/4” refers to 4 mm for the first glass, 6 mm for the air chamber and 4 mm for the second glass. The greater the thickness of the air chamber, the greater the insulation.
There are also for sale, asymmetric double crystals, for example, “10/6/4″. In this case, the outer glass is the thickest for better sound insulation.
There are also triple crystals, much more insulating but also heavier and more expensive. Greater thermal and acoustic insulation.
The double glass reduces the ” cold …
Robotics continues to make great waves in the world of technology, as scientists strive to make them faster, stronger, more responsive and more human like than ever before. Robots are used right across the globe in virtually every business sector, but one area in which they are literally saving the lives of their human counterparts is the healthcare industry.
Robots have been widely used in the industrial production of medicines and medical equipment to perform menial, repetitive tasks that are time consuming. However, as robots become increasingly more complex, more dextrous and ultimately more intelligent, they are being used to replace humans in far more complicated activities, including the diagnosis and treatment of patients in a medical establishment.
So could we soon see robots making up the shortfall in our NHS staff shortage? Shockingly, this is far more possible than you may think. The very latest …

One of the most commonly asked questions on the subject of the virtual dataroom is that of whether there’s really any big difference between the VDR and DropBox. Not only DropBox of course, but every other example of a generic cloud storage (GCS) service on offer right now 100% free of charge. And it’s an extremely valid question to say the least – all popular examples of GCS services allow users to sync their desktop and mobile devices with their online files and data, making full use of remote storage, sharing, streaming, messaging and so on.
Unfortunately, while it seems to be something of a fabulous free ticket the likes of which any business would be foolish to overlook, the average GFS simply isn’t and wasn’t designed for business use. Summed up in a nutshell, it largely comes down to the way in which the GFS the average user makes use …
