Kömmerling are the latest high profile company to join the Triple Glazing Question debate, which will be held at the Ricoh Arena on 10th April 2014. The company will be also taking the opportunity to show off their impressive new aluminium clad AluStar system in a triple glazed format on stand 18.
Triple glazing is nothing particularly new for Kömmerling’s profine Group, given their standing as one of Europe’s most technically advanced PVCu systems companies. In Germany triple glazing is far more widely used, although window styles are typically tilt and turn, with systems such as KBE System 88 capable of u-values as low as 0.6 W/m2K. This is in contrast to the history and Britishness of casement windows, which dominate the UK market in a double glazed variant.
Kömmerling’s C70 and O70 Gold® systems, along with their AluStar options are all available in triple glazed formats, incorporating either 36 or 40mm glass units. Triple glazing compared to double glazing is far more energy efficient and provides for better sound insulation. The same can also be said for the fact that Kömmerling’s systems are 5 chambered unlike the majority of the market which still offer 3 chambered systems.
Kevin Warner of Kömmerling comments: ‘It will be an interesting debate and one that we’re actively involved in, as product innovation including triple glazing is very much part of our brand ethos across the globe. It’s inevitable that window and door systems, along with glass specifications will have to improve over the coming years.’
