Scepticism For Triple Glazing

Mike Crewdson, Emplas – “you see a definite split between larger and smaller businesses” in enthusiasm for triple glazing.

A survey jointly commissioned by two leading trade fabricators has revealed their installer cusotmers remain sceptical as to market demand for triple glazed products. Emplas and Lister Trade Frames found that of those polled, only 7% of retailers had installed triple glazed products in the last year. Additionally, only 20% expected demand for triple glazing to grow significantly in the next three years, with more than half forecasting slow to little growth, while 29% said that they were ‘unsure’. The survey’s findings were part of a joint presentation of the recent Triple Glazing Question, presented by Mark Warren of Lister’s and Mike Crewdson of Emplas. When asked if they expected demand for triple glazing to exceed that for double glazed products in the next three years, 79% of respondents said ‘no’, with 16% again, unable to decide. Just 5% of respondents predicted that triple glazed windows and door sales would exceed those of double glazed products. Results followed the same pattern when applied to a five year period, while 76% of respondents went a step further, questioning whether triple glazed sales would ever exceed those of double-glazed products. Mike Crewdson, Sales and Marketing Director, Emplas, said: “At that headline level, installers don’t see the value in triple glazed products and don’t report the demand for them. However, if you dig down a little deeper, you see a definite split between larger and smaller businesses. Those companies doing between 10 and 20 frames per week are pretty sceptical.” Mark Warren of Lister’s believed that triple glazing would be suitable in certain circumstances. “In very exposed locations, or on passivhaus type developments, triple glazed products may be appropriate. Similarly, with the right configuration of glass they can deliver improved sound proofing and acoustic benefits.” Both Emplas and Lister’s see the greater optimism with the larger installer customers. More on triple glazing will be found in the April issue of MyTradeTV.
