What kind of glass to choose?

Fortunately, many types of glasses are available to customize even more your glass room and meet all your specific needs.

Indeed, you can choose a translucid or tinted glass, a classic one or a technologic one and so one.


The single Glazing:

It is a simple sheet of glass with poor thermal performance. It is used in the design of winter gardens to grow plants. Its design is simple and its price low enough.


The double Glazing:

It is the most common type of glazing for verandas, it consists of two glasses enclosing a thin space of air or a gas improving thermal insulation, mainly Argon gas. The two glasses are separated by an aluminum or steel spacer containing desiccants to prevent condensation inside the double glazing.


The triple Glazing;

Triple glazing is used massively in windows and bay windows in passive houses. Thermally speaking it is very good. On the other hand, the solar factor is lower than double glazing, which means that we benefit less from the warmth of the sun during the winter. But, this also means that during summer, your glass room with stay cooler.


So, double glazing or triple glazing?

We recommend triple glazing if the veranda is located in a particularly cold region where it is advisable to fight against thermal losses.

The thermal performance of a high-end double glazing is very competitive, it is also less heavy and the glass frame assembly is much cheaper than a triple glazing assembly. In regions where the off-season tends to extend, double glazing is a wise choice because it allows you to take advantage of the free energy provided by the sun.

Triple glazing provides the best possible thermal insulation. However, given its price and weight, it only saves a few additional insulations. Its interest is more in agreement with a logic of optimal limitation of energy losses in line with what we call a passive house.
