Although a relatively novel concept within the local scenario, triple glazed apertures are used more frequently nowadays. But what are triple glazed apertures exactly? As the name itself implies, triple glazed windows have three layers of glass, and the benefits are tenfold, which is why CME Finishes wanted to share them to both their potential and loyal clientele.
What exactly is Triple Glazing?
It’s important to first understand the concept of insulated windows, because this helps to keep heated air in and the cold winter temperatures out. During the hotter months, these windows make your air conditioner’s work much easier, by keeping the cool air in and allowing you to enjoy a lower utility bill.
Insulated windows are made of multiple layers of glass. These glass layers are separated within the window unit by a piece of metal or foam, called a spacer. This spacer creates a pocket between the two panes of glass. Window producers can further insulate this pocket by filling it with an inert gas, such as argon or krypton.
For many years, the most common form of window insulation was double pane, also called double glazing. As the name suggests, this type of window is comprised of two panes of glass, separated by a single spacer. A triple glazed window unit is made up of three panes of glass with two spacers creating the even, airtight separation. These panes are usually filled with inert gas for added insulation.
