VELUX glazing is a key choice when choosing your roof window. The important thing is that you know the options you have. The way the glass is manufactured is different for each type which is what separates them. Like most things, the types of window glazing do have their pros and cons. The type of glazing that will meet your needs, depend on your priorities, budget, and the level of efficiency you want from your windows.
Double Glazed Units
Also known as double pane, double glazed windows have two sheets of glass with a space in the middle. Argon gas is inserted in between the layers of glass, designed to help insulate the windows. Double glazed windows are the most common type.
Triple Glazed Units
Triple glazed windows have three sheets of glass, all with argon gas in between. Triple glazed windows are the best insulated, but they are also the most expensive. They are not very common due to the price and because they are usually only used in colder climates that need the extra insulation.
