Letting in light was once the sole function of a window but no longer. Glazing is now expected to contribute towards the thermal properties of our homes and triple glazing outperforms the rest. Originally devised for the harsh winters of Canada and Scandinavian countries, triple glazing could reduce the heat loss through the windows by a third more than efficient double glazing, and the sound insulation is improved too.
What is Triple Glazed? It's the club sandwich of window design. While double glazing consists of two layers of glass with an air gap between them, triple glazing gives you three layers of glass and two air gaps. Just as with double glazing, the glass can be treated to make it more energy efficient, and the air gap can be filled with an inert gas such as argon, to help to reduce the heat loss.
Planitherm Triple Glazing
PLANITHERM glass is ideally suited to triple glazed windows and by upgrading to triple glazing you can save even more on the heating bills.
Modern windows are being constructed using three panes of glass, hence the name triple glazing.
Triple glazed windows are even more energy-efficient than modern double glazing. The thermal insulation benefit is clearly visible through the additional pane of glass and gas filled cavity.
