Reduction in Noise. Double glazing provides excellent shielding from outside noise pollution. If you live near a busy road, or in a noisy neighbourhood double glazing helps to create a quieter home environment.

Triple glazing as the name suggests is three panels of glass sandwiched together and filled with a gas.
What are the benefits to triple glazed glass, and do I need it?
The key benefits over and above standard double glazing is improved energy efficiency.
Having the third pane of glass has reflective properties, bouncing heat back inside. The suns warmth passing through the glass into your home is trapped, meaning improved energy saving and thermal benefits.
We would recommend triple glazing units in areas that are hidden from direct sunlight or north facing, as these windows are usually more problematic for heat loss.
