Triple glazing is considered by almost every homeowner at some point, whether its when the energy bill comes through or in the chill of the British Winter. Originating in the brute winters of Scandinavia, triple glazing is simply three panes of glass in one unit with the air gap between each filled with an inert gas such as Argon.
Triple glazing reduces the amount of heat loss through a window, still allowing heat in from the sun (solar gain). This is achieved by the two outer low emissivity panes of glass in the unit, combined with the extra air gap filled with Argon.
In the UK the majority of glass units installed are double glazed with Ug values often of around 1.0 at best to 1.3. Our superior Austrian made triple glazed unit can achieve a Ug value of 0.5 in our exclusive Katzbeck windows. This means that when our Passiva window combines its solid timber frame, thermal insulation core, with its triple glazed unit it can achieve a best U value of 0.72!
