VELFAC triple glazing for housebuilding – is this the end of double glazing?

Triple glazing is fast becoming the default choice for housebuilding projects across the UK, helping the Government meet its target of ‘net zero’ emissions by 2025 – the year minimum U-values will fall to 0.8W/m²K as part of the Future Homes Standard (FHS). These lower U-values are easily met by triple glazing but not by double glazing, and as a result housebuilders are starting to specify more triple glazing, a trend which will accelerate as the 2025 deadline approaches.

Why install ‘Scandi-style’ triple glazing?

VELFAC – founded in Denmark over 50 years ago – is the archetypal ‘Scandi-window’ manufacturer, with our bespoke composite triple glazed windows already meeting the FHS 0.8W/m²K U-value target. With demand for triple glazing set to rise significantly it’s vital to source from a reliable manufacturer such as VELFAC as our continuous investment in triple glazing supply brings a range of benefits:

  • Triple glazing costs only marginally higher than double glazed equivalents thanks to significant economies of scale
  • Reliable supply from our European factories
  • Specialised accessories and ironmongery available as standard proven to carry the weight of triple glazed units
  • A network of Approved Installers trained to install triple glazing to guaranteed levels of quality
