What is triple glazing?

Simply put, triple glazed windows consist of three glass panes each separated by a gas-filled space or vacuum, whereas double glazing just consists of two panes. It was first developed in the 1930s but was originally only popular in Scandinavian countries. However, today it’s a popular choice for homeowners across Britain.

Triple glazing vs double glazing

Double glazing is an ideal choice for many homes as it offers high levels of thermal efficiency but if your home is particularly cold or perhaps you live near a busy road, triple glazing can offer you that extra layer of thermal and sound insulation.

As with any home improvement, the more materials you use the more you can pay so triple glazing is a pricier investment than double but the benefits are clearly worth it;

  • Improved thermal efficiency with lower u-values, meaning that more warmth is kept in the home and your energy bills will be reduced. This will in turn ensure that your home’s carbon footprint is lowered so it’s the best choice for the planet
  • Higher levels of noise insulation – an ideal choice for busy areas and noisy roads
  • With an extra glass pane, your windows are stronger against accidental damage and give an extra layer of security.
