This can be a very confusing topic. We have tried to make this as simple and transparent as possible by including as many of the configurations as possible that will suit your home.
The current Scottish Building Regulation U-Value for replacement windows is 1.6 (U – Values are the measurement of your windows thermal efficiency).
Architects and planners may require a lower than 1.6 U-Value to compensate for the overall U-value of an extension to a property. When this occurs the glass must be upgraded to increase the windows thermal performance.
It is important that manufacturers can clarify the U-value of their product.

In truth there are benefits with triple over double but natural down sides also like weight and reduced light transmission. The application of double or triple glazing is specific to each individual householder.Download Brochure Get in touch
