Increase Energy Efficiency & Reduce Noise with Triple Glazing
Triple Glazing is simply the use of three panes of glass in a window frame rather than one or two, (double glazing). The reason home owners choose triple glazing over standard double glazing is to improve the energy efficiency of their home or reduce noise from outside. Energy Efficiency of windows is measured with U-Values with the lower the value the better. Single glazing has a U-Value of five and old double glazing is often around the three mark. Due to new techniques and materials used new Double Glazed windows have a U-Value around the 1.5 mark and Triple Glazed units improve on this to nearer the one or 1.1 mark.
