Triple pane glass, simply stated, is a window glass package with three sheets of glass in it, rather than two. You might hear it called triple glazing.
Replacement windows and triple pane glass are on my mind. I hear people talk about triple pane glass all the time. What's the big deal? Is it worth it?
Triple pane glass, simply stated, is a window glass package with three sheets of glass in it, rather than two. You might hear it called triple glazing. It just means that in addition to the outer pane of glass and the inner pane, there is a third sheet of glass nestled in between. There are three main advantages to triple pane glass.
- With the third sheet of glass a second chamber is created inside the glass unit to fill with insulating gas, making the performance of the window stronger and the product itself more energy efficient. Our newest glass package has even wider chambers, with over an inch of insulating space!
- A combination of the glass windows with triple panes and the higher insulation value provides a greater sound barrier. This is especially important if you live near a noisy road, or an airport. I’ll be honest. My bedroom window faces the neighbor with the dog that barks non stop. If I ever replaced that window, I would seriously consider triple pane!
- Status. There is no question that a triple pane window will be stronger, heavier, and more efficient that a typical double pane window. Knowing that it is a “better” window in that regard provides any owner of a triple pane window with some status. If you are someone who likes having the best in your home; consider triple pane.
