What is Double or Triple Glazing?
Double Glazed & Triple Glazed windows are insulated glass units (IGU) constructed by a combination of multiple glass panes, coming together to create a single window system. Most IGUs are double glazed i.e. containing two panes of glass, triple glazed with three glass panes, both are becoming a regular choice of many families due to energy costs and noise reduction. The panes of glass in IGUs are separated by a spacer, filled with insulating non-toxic gas. The glass is then fitted into window frames, which is made wider to accommodate the two or three glass panes.

Advantages Of Multi-Plane Glass Doors
Better Insulation & Energy Saving
Each IGU has a gap between the two or three glass panes, which has been filled with a non-toxic insulating argon gas. Along with uPVC profile, they make it very difficult for external temperatures to penetrate the door, meaning your home warmer in winter and cooler in the summer! This feature will automatically reduce your reliance on air conditioning & helping you significantly save on energy bills.
Furthermore, double or triple glazed windows reduce condensation, thus preventing the growth of mould and mildew, making your residence a much healthier and happier place for life. This is combated by the Desiccant in the spacer and tightly sealed edges, you’ll have a clear view, free from condensation.
