Triple Glazed Windows
More Performance, More Comfort, More Security
With fluctuating energy costs around the world, consistent energy bills are luxury all homeowners welcome. Windows are the most exposed part of a home and provide plenty of opportunity for energy loss and savings. Modern triple glazed windows with low U-values will help decrease both heating and cooling bills while creating a more stable and comfortable interior temperature year round. Best of all, because it is so common in Germany, the price difference compared to double glazing is just 10% or less! This means triple glazed windows from abroad may be cheaper than local ones!
What is Triple Glazing?
Simply put, triple glazing is three panes of glass built into a window. This modern innovation outperforms single and double glazed windows across the board. It will reduce your energy costs, increase the comfort inside your home and improve security.
We are all familiar with the importance of wearing multiple layers of clothing in winter. Each additional layer provides not just another barrier against the weather, but also creates a space to trap warm air between them. Windows are similar.
While the insulating value is improved by 40% the price differs not more than 10% from double-glazed to triple-glazed windows.
Triple glazing creates not just a third pane of glass, but also a second air gap or cavity between them (see illustration left). Each air gap is also typically filled with argon which is heavier and less conductive than normal air. This makes it even tougher for energy to move through, reducing heat loss.
- Superior insulation ability with top R-values and U-values
- Reduced heating and lower heating bills
- No big difference in price compared to double (no more than 10%)
- Improved sound reduction and security
- Enhanced living comfort (no drafts or cold spots)
- Reduced condensation
All of our frames are built for triple glazing, whether they be wood, vinyl or aluminum clad. Insulate yourself against rising energy costs and tightening building codes with triple glazed windows.
