Triple Glazing

Triple glazing is made in a similar way to double glazing but uses three panels of glass to create two airspaces. It provides excellent insulating performance but there are some considerations to note.

  • due to the extra thickness of the unit, they require an extra wide frame
  • they can let very little solar heat through
  • the light transmission can be quite low due to the thickness of the three panels of glass
  • in most cases retrofitting can not be done with triple glazing 

There are a few options available that can be more efficient than triple glazing, for both cost and performance. One example are 'coatings' applied to the glass during manufacturing called Low Emissivity Glass (Low E glass).

See our Low E Glass info page for me details.

Technical specifications, including U values and light transmission details are available from us.
