American Dream Triple pane windows have three layers of glass – outer, middle and inner. The middle layer is surrounded by the inert gas krypton , which is trapped by the outer and inner panes.
Rare Gasses enhance the performance of window conduction and convection. Krypton is a better thermal insulator because it’s 25 times more dense (less conductive) than air. Krypton’s high density reduces convection effects, which further improves thermal insulation performance. Krypton is also a better sound insulator, with a 400% higher efficiency than air. Krypton is the most efficient in a 1/4” space so two air spaces filled with krypton is better than one. Krypton is non toxic, colorless, non-sensitive to UV, non-flammable.
Benefits of Triple Pane Windows vs. Double Pane Windows
A triple pane window provides more insulation and is more energy efficient than the more common double pane window (or dual pane), not just because of the added barrier, but because the two pieces of glass have 16 coatings of a low-emittance (Low-E) coating.
Essentially a Low-E coating hinders radiant heat transfer. Therefore, the temperature on the inside of your building is not affected much by means of the triple pane windows whether it is summer or winter, as very little heat will be lost from the inside or gained from the outside. This is one clear advantage triple panes have over double panes. (See Energy Efficiency of Triple Pane Windows – r value)
