GGF Launches New Triple Glazing Guide

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is pleased to announce the launch of a new “Triple Glazing Guide”.

This guidance document is to help guide manufacturers, and installers of Triple Glazing in the UK. In recent years the use of Triple Glazing (Insulating Glass Units consisting of three panes of glass with two cavities) has been on the ascent.This increase could be attributed to several factors including:

  1. A greater demand from consumers because of more media coverage of the benefits of Triple Glazing
  2. Architects and building designers specifying larger areas of glazing than referenced in Building Regulation Guidance.
  3. The increased awareness of the thermal benefits of Triple Glazing which is becoming the standard specification within low and zero energy homes.
  4. Companies in the industry driving strong marketing campaigns to grow the Triple Glazing product sector
  5.  

Russell Day, GGF Senior Technical Officer commented, “Over the last few years it is clear that increased promotion of triple glazing by the industry has increased the consumer demand for this product. This new guide considers the benefits associated with triple glazing, and the factors that manufacturers and installers of triple glazed windows should consider. “

The factors to be considered are thermal performance, acoustic performance, IGU and frame design and specification, manufacturing requirements, the effects on distribution and installation and the possible effects on optical and visual quality.

Steve Rice, GGF Technical Director commented, “As we have seen the triple glazing sector grow, the GGF technical team felt it was essential to produce a guidance document that would help them in the manufacture, supply and installation of this increasingly popular product.”

The new Guide will be available for free download from the Members Area of the GGF website here and if printed copies are required Members will be able to order them at a special Members’ discount from the GGF shop http://shop.ggfmembers.com/.
