Are you considering investing in triple glazing in Melbourne? Think again!
Triple glazed windows are a huge investment. With the extra cost of an additional pane of glass, as well as reinforced framing and hinges to hold the extra weight, the expenses soon mount up. Are the results really worth it?
The efficiency of windows – or any building material for that matter – is rated in U values, a measurement of how fast heat is transferred. As a base measure, walls have a U value of 0.3 W/ (m2.k). Conventional double glazing has a U value of 3.4 W/ (m2.k), while triple glazed windows have a value of 0.3.
From this information, adding an extra pane of glass seems worth the effort. There is, however, a more affordable alternative: Sound Proof Window’s system of secondary glazing delivers a U value of 1.9 W/ (m2.k). The difference between triple glazing and our windows is easily made up by the addition of curtains – and all for a fraction of the price and bother of installing new window frames and panes.
Triple glazing is a very disruptive and expensive process that requires the removal of your old windows and their frames. By contrast, our secondary glazing panels can be easily fitted to your existing window. There’s less fuss, less mess, and a lot less cost. You can also maintain the original look of your home, both internally and externally, as the frames are very thin and can be colour-matched to your existing decor.
