Triple glazed windows are becoming a popular option for today’s homeowners and suppliers, but long-standing concerns about the costs overshadowing the real benefits are on many homeowner’s minds. As experts in the Windows and Doors industry, Supercraft Windows is here to help you understand more about triple glazing and its benefits.
So, what is triple glazing?
Triple glazing is a window that has three panes of glass sealed within a frame. The glass is separated by small gaps filled with argon gas, which is heavier than air, making it more difficult for heat to escape—providing efficient insulation against cold and noise pollution.
While double glazing is a worthwhile addition to any home, triple glazing goes beyond a certain level. However, it sits at a higher price range than double glazing, so you might be wondering whether it’s worth spending more money on triple glazing rather than double glazing.
What makes triple glazing energy efficient?
A big selling point for triple glazing is the energy efficiency it provides. The air gaps in triple glazed windows are filled with argon gas which is a poor conductor and reduces heat loss through the window. The gaps are too small to circulate air, and the argon gas improves thermal efficiency because it stops heat from escaping. Furthermore, the additional pane is said to reduce the levels of noise from outside.
Triple glazed windows reduce outside noise.
A further advantage of triple glazing is that it reduces the noise from outside. Homeowners who live in a noisy neighbourhood might be inclined to choose triple glazing over double glazing for this fact. So why do triple glazed windows reduce sound? Simply put, the extra glass pane makes it harder for outside sounds to reach inside.
Is triple glazing more secure?
Not only does triple glazing help with thermal efficiency and reduce energy costs, but it also makes your home more secure. The extra pane of thick glass makes a window tougher to break, discouraging any potential intruder and acting as a deterrent. Combine triple glazing with our Yale GripLock system, and you can rest assured that your home is safe and secure—giving you the ultimate peace of mind.
The Yale GripLock system is included as standard in all UPVC Windows and Doors from Supercraft.
