What is Triple Glazing?

Triple glazing is the latest innovation in window insulation but what makes it different from double glazing and secondary glazing and is it worth the investment? Here we answer everything you wanted to know about triple glazing.

What is triple glazing?

Triple glazing is effectively three panes of glass separated by argon gas, this means it has an extra layer of glass to insulate your home over double glazing. This extra layer makes it more difficult for heat to escape allowing you to maintain the temperature in your home.

How does triple glazing work?

The air gaps in triple glazing are too small to allow the air to circulate and therefore prevent heat transfer by convection. Because the argon gas is a poor conductor, it reduces the rate of heat loss through the window.

As well as providing a warmer home in the winter months it also reduces energy bills by preventing heat loss. After installing triple glazing you’ll notice a significant difference in your bills as well as the comfort of your home – especially in the winter months. This means you won’t have to reach for the thermostat. In fact, triple glazing is five times more efficient than single glazing – imagine the difference that could make to your home.

By 2016, all the new homes that are built are likely to be zero carbon and we are all being encouraged to reduce the U-values (the heat loss) in our homes. Install triple glazing and you won’t feel the need to turn the dial up on the thermostat in the way you used to, which means you’ll be saving yourself money in the long run. It is not an exact science but a single-pane window normally has a U-value of around 5 and double glazing used to have a U-value of around 3, although manufacturing advances have slashed that number further. Now Building Regulations say that all new windows installed should have a U-value of no less than 1.6.

Will I have to compromise on window styles?

Not at all, all our window frames are available with triple glazing so you can enjoy any style and material with added efficiency. With colder winters and rising heating bills, you’ll be more than thankful you made the choice to upgrade.

What other benefits can triple glazing provide aside from efficiency?

As well as lower energy and bills and a warmer home, you’ll also notice a quieter home thanks to the increased barrier to the outside – meaning a more peaceful home.  Perfect if you live by a busy road or in a built up area in the South East and ideal for getting a good night’s sleep.

Additionally, you’ll also benefit from increased security thanks to thick and layered glass which is made from our strengthened safety glass protecting your home from would-be intruders and giving you extra peace of mind that your home is safe.

How much does triple glazing cost? 

Our triple glazing deals make investing in this technology surprisingly affordable while the savings you make on energy bills will actually pay for the windows in time, making them a worthwhile investment that pays for itself. We also provide a variety of finance plans to work around you making your investment all the more affordable and allowing you to enjoy a warmer home sooner rather than later.

Can I get triple glazed doors?

You can have triple glazing installed in windows, doors, roof lights and even a wall of glass, but it will be heavier so your frames are going to have to be able to accommodate it.
