Anglian have today issued the following press release, announcing homeowners can now have triple glazing.
Tomorrows world presenter Philippa Forrester will be presenting their technology at Grand designs Live in Birmingham (9th-12th October) www.granddesignslive.com/show-info/show-highlights/1907-the-innovation-station-brought-to-you-by-anglian-home-improvements The press release reads…….
1 October 2014
The launch of Anglian Home Improvements’ new high-tech triple glazed windows will provide greater choice and flexibility for the UK’s homeowners, enabling them to fit triple glazing only where it’s really needed.
Specially designed to be warmer, quieter and safer, Anglian triple glazing is the perfect solution for rooms that need added insulation, such as north-facing rooms that rarely get any sunlight. It has been designed to look the same as Anglian’s double glazed windows, meaning homeowners can now choose to install triple only where they will really benefit from it yet still get perfectly matched windows, retaining the aesthetics and integrity of the home.
Anglian’s triple glazed windows have an extra pane of Low E glass – an invisible metal coating that enables the windows to harvest more free energy from the sun and reflect heat back into the room. The added warmth retained within the property can help to keep energy bills down and reduce the home’s carbon footprint. Meanwhile, the extra pane of glass reduces outside noise and makes the window harder to break, bringing greater security to the home.
As part of the product development process, the company has invested around GBP 1million in a new state-of-the-art production line which has been installed at its factory in Norwich where it manufactures a wide range of home improvement products. The new production line includes a highly sensitive scanner that will detect even the smallest imperfection in the glass, rejecting any glass that isn’t faultless, as well as a pioneering system for filling the glazing units with argon gas using robotic assembly in a compression chamber in order to seal them perfectly.
Martin Troughton, Marketing Director at Anglian Home Improvements, says, “We are really excited about the launch of Anglian’s new triple glazed windows and have invested heavily in the research and technology required to be able to make sure we can give homeowners exactly the right solution for their homes.
“The truth is that homeowners in this country don’t generally need triple glazing throughout their properties as the UK climate is relatively mild. However, most of us have one or two rooms that would benefit from an extra layer of insulation to help retain heat, reduce outside noise or improve security, and this is where Anglian’s triple glazing product comes into play. Different rooms have different needs and now, thanks to Anglian’s new triple glazing windows and our ‘mix and match’ design approach, we are able to find the ideal solution for each individual homeowner, on a room by room basis, making their homes more enjoyable all year round.”
Recent research by Anglian Home Improvements found that 15 per cent of UK homeowners had a preference for triple glazing over other window options. While 53 per cent of respondents said their main reason for buying double or triple glazing would be to reduce heating bills, a further 45 per cent said it would be to make their home warmer and 23 per cent said their motivation would be to make their home quieter.
Martin Troughton continues, “It is interesting to note that we’ve seen a steady increase in interest from homeowners in triple glazing, yet this still only equates to 15 per cent of the UK population wishing to invest in this technology. While some will undoubtedly benefit from upgrading their windows to triple glazing, many will find they can achieve equally good, if not better, results from installing the latest A+ rated double glazing in their homes. It really is a matter of ‘horses for courses’, with each room being assessed individually based on whether they would benefit from things like extra warmth, reduced noise levels or added security.”
