Guardian joins the Triple Glazing Question


Steven Scrivens

Steven Scrivens, Regional Marketing Manager at Guardian Glass, talks about some of the technical challenges it would bring if there’s an increase in demand in triple glazing

Guardian joins the Triple Glazing Question

Guardian Glass is supporting the Triple Glazing Question. We believe the time is right to open up the debate as the demand for triple glazing is growing. Many businesses are tagging triple glazing production onto their current product portfolio without strictly understanding the capabilities, manufacturing considerations and performance of this product.

Drivers for higher energy efficient windows can be seen in the latest building regulations that affect the performance of new housing and commercial properties. There’s also been a higher level of interest in Passivhaus where windows have to be triple glazed to comply.

So what are the facts about triple glazing? Does the industry have the right information to make a sensible decision on the product and its impact to their businesses? Edgetech is hosting The Triple Glazing Question, a one-off opportunity for 500 people in the industry to get together and explore some of these questions in a forum. It’s designed to give a platform across the whole supply chain to look at the challenges and opportunities of triple glazing. Guardian is joining the Triple Glazing Question to help address these topics. We are offering information covering the technical aspects of glass in triple glazed units. We’ll be explaining issues surrounding coatings, performance, toughening, acoustics and condensation.

For the Triple Glazing Question live event there’s a panel of experts discussing the implications for IGU manufacturers, fabricators and installers. Each will open the debate for their respective areas of expertise, before opening questions to the audience via an interactive media system which will allow the audience to use their smart phones to pose questions direct to the stage.

The Triple Glazing Question will be taking place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Thursday 10 April, there will be a limited number of places available so visit www.tripleglazingq.co.uk now to book your place.
