1, What is triple glazed glass?
Triple glazed glass is also called triple glazing glass panels, it is made by using three glass panels(usually tempered) separated with two aluminum spacers in between, sealing with butyl sealant and structural sealant to achieve excellent soundproofing and super high energy-saving functions. Triple glazed glass is mostly used in places where temperature varies very dramatically for winter and summer. Such as Russia, Mongolia, Canada, New Zealand, or Norway, Iceland, etc.
2, Triple glazed low e windows configuration.
Triple glazed glass u value is extremely low if using low e glass for the configurations, it can reach U-value<0.7W/m2·K. In places where the climate is extremely cold, infrared light is the main source of warmth, triple glazed low e windows can help reflect the infrared lights inside, thus keeping warm and reduce the warming cost.
There are a few choices for choosing triple glazed low e windows:
single panel low e:
two panels low e:
3, Are triple glazed windows soundproof?
Most people are asking this question, do triple glazed windows reduce noise? Will triple glazing stop traffic noise?

5, Triple glazed vs double glazed
Most people will dwell on this question: how to choose between triple glazed vs double glazed?
Here are some tips for your reference:
- Consider the usage: if you are living in a place where the climate is extremely cold. Triple glazed windows will be more suitable;
- Consider the window frame: the triple glazed glass will have higher performance, but the weight will raise accordingly, besides, the width of the triple glazed is much wider than double glazed, one main concern is if the frame can endure the weight as well as fit the width;
- Consider the performance design, double glazed glass with low e coating glass can reach U-value<1.8W/m2·K, but if you need the U-value<1.2W/m2·K or even lower, no doubt that triple glazed glass is the option.
6, Are triple glazed windows worth it?
Triple glazed windows price will be about 30%~40% higher than double glazed windows. However, consider the energy saving cost for the air conditioner or the heating power, triple glazed windows will compensate for the price in the long run.

The triple glazed glass producing process is mostly the same as double glazing glass. The only difference is you have to do the butyl sealant twice and the structural sealant as well. Most triple glazed glass panel manufacturers are doing this process manually, therefore it will cause some potential risk of quality problems such as scratches or lack of sealant causing leaking problems. We Shenzhen Dragon Glass are adopting the world advanced auto sealing insulating line- Bystronic insulating line, which can do the sealant fully automatically. Fully guarantee high quality triple glazing.
