Would you like to upgrade your current double glazing to triple glazing, but have read things about triple glazing that have perhaps sown the seeds of doubt into your mind? Have you found yourself confused about what is a myth and what is the truth?

“Yes, I have!”. Well worry not – we are going to share our expertise and confirm the truth behind the top myths!

Myths v the truth

Triple glazing security

Myth: burglars can easily break into triple glazing windows

Incorrect. Triple glazing uses the same security design as double glazing and enhances the performance thanks to the vacuum or argon-gas filled space between the panes of glass. This is the perfect way to improve energy-efficiency and have peace of mind that your family are safe and sound from unwanted visitors.

Myths: triple glazing looks totally different to double glazing

Sometimes assumptions are made that triple glazing will look bigger, broader, and bulkier than double glazing. But is this true?

No, the difference is very simple – as we touched on above, double glazing has two panes of glass whereas triple glazing has three. There are no aesthetical differences.

Myths: triple glazing does not reduce any extra unwanted noise compared to double glazing

Incorrect. Triple glazing is more soundproof!

Having a layer of additional glazing helps to create a quiet home environment, blocking out any unwanted noise (whilst also retaining heat and being energy-efficient). Whether this is from the nearby busy main road or from the local tube station, opting for triple glazing will successfully insulate any annoying noises, leaving you with enhanced peace and quiet.
