Why choose triple Glazed windows?

Posted: 28/04/2017

Our triple glazed windows are now generating a great contribution towards the thermal performance of your house and saving you money on your heating bills. 

Why choose Triple Glazed?

Triple glazed products are now becoming much more energy efficient, as well as popular. According to the Energy Saving Trust, an unbelievable 26% of all domestic heat loss escapes through the windows. Installing energy efficient windows is essential to help keep the cost of energy bills down, and keeping your home as warm as possible. Especially with winter approaching.

The additional glass pane not only maintains heat; it adds as a sound insulation barrier that is well improved from the standard double glazed products. However, the amount of sound you want to insulate depends on the thickness of glass you choose for the sealed unit. But, this will also depend on the unit’s weight and its certain restrictions on the size of the glazing. 

In addition, the greatest attribute to the Triple Glazed glass is the security measure it adds. The toughened glass provides an extra level of security for the sealed unit, and the middle pane is created as toughened glass that combats against stress cracks that can occur due to heat build up inside the sealed unit. 

Facts about Triple Glazing:

  • Triple glazed units are up to 40% more thermally efficient than double glazed units.
  • It exceeds the current "A" rated window energy rating.
  • The internal surface temperature of a single glazed window is 1 degrees.
  • The internal surface temperature of a double-glazed window (fitted 10 years ago) is generally around 11 degrees. 
  • The internal surface temperature of a triple glazed window pane is 18 degrees with a u-value of 0.68.
  • Triple glazed units will not overheat your home. The level of solar gain is actually less than double glazed units due to the extra pane of glass and additional cavity. 

We can offer Triple Glazing options across all of our systems.
