Glazing

Single glazed glass windows are made up one layer of glass and for a long time was the only viable glazing option available. However, owing to a myriad of reasons ranging from global warming to increasing need for efficiency, single glass glazing has dwindled in popularity.

Moreover, they also let in the highest heat loss and are unable to keep out cold, depending on the climatic conditions, while also allowing for the highest daylight transmission.

This has made them unsuitable in the current scenario and more and more houses have started opting for either double glazed or triple glazed options.

Double glazing windows are made up of two panes of glass and can help with insulation as well noise reduction. They also help retain heat and keep out the cold more effectively and efficiently. This, in turn, results in more energy savings which in turn helps in lowering the environmental impact while also leaving a smaller carbon footprint.

Although it lets in as much light as single glazed windows, the extra space between the windows acts as an additional area of insulation. In cases where a house already has single glazed windows, it’s possible to retrofit in order to add a second pane.

A window standard in most urban houses, especially in regions with extreme weather conditions, triple glass glazing has gained popularity owing to the significant energy gains one benefits from.

Triple glazing simply means using three panes of glass instead of a single pane or a double pane and the extra pane helps in increasing efficiency while reducing noise transmission. Although switching from a double paned glass to a triple paned glass doesn’t result in much energy savings or drastic insulation gains, it must be said that the jump from single pane to triple pane glazing is enormous.
