Be Forward-Thinking And Purchase Triple Glazing
When double glazing was first introduced to the window market it completely revolutionised the glass and glazing industry and remains to this day the most popular choice of window. When it was realised just how better equipped it was deal with draughts, expensive energy bills and adverse weather it was inevitable that it would become a favourite with homeowners.
However, there is a newer innovation looking to steal the thunder of double glazing in the form of triple glazing. Triple glazing has long been popular in Scandinavian countries where the climate is even colder than the temperatures we regularly experience in the UK, but it now receiving the acclaim and recognition that it deserves in blighty.
The reason being is because triple glazed windows and triple glazed front doors are even more energy efficient than double glazed windows and doors, offer a ‘U value’ around four times lower than double glazing and eight times lower than single glazing.
In simple terms, triple glazing contains just one pane of glass more than double glazing. This has led to concerns from some that it would be too bulky and heavy to place in the home, but thanks to the advancement of technology, a triple glazed window is extremely thin in composition, yet still built to a level of thermal efficiency never seen before.
You can throw literally any type of weather conditions at a triple glazed window or door and it will manage to see it off and maintain its visually-appealing appearance at all times. The finish applied to the frames is weather-proof so there will be no risk of rotting, flaking or fading ever taking place.
The installation of triple glazed windows and doors can also help make your property that bit more environmentally-friendly as damaging carbon emissions will be lowered hugely in comparison to what a set of single glazed windows and doors would emit on a regular basis.
Currently there are only a small majority of suppliers offering triple glazing within their product range, but that is expected to change dramatically over the coming months and years as people begin to realise the undoubted benefits it will provide to them and their homes.
Because of the high performance of triple glazing it will be no surprise to see it at the forefront of the industry in the future. Get in first and install it before all your friends, neighbours and family members.
