Quality double glazing offered as standard across our product rangeenergy efficiency

If you want to improve the energy efficiency of your home all year round, whilst keeping out noise at the same time, then installing double glazing is a great option.

Whether you want to install new windows or update existing units, Kingfisher offer double glazing as standard for all of their window installations.

A rated for energy efficiency

All of our double glazing is A rated for energy efficiency as it uses Europe’s best thermally performing glass – Planitherm. Double glazing that is rated well for energy efficiency means more heat is retained in your home, helping to keep you warm when you really need it.

Planitherm products are soft coated and reflect heat back into a room – the outer pane can even capture the heat from the sun. This in turn eliminates cold areas around windows, making your living spaces more enjoyable all year round.

Accessorise your windows

Our double glazing can incorporate our decorative glass and many options of window frame – helping you to create truly bespoke home improvements without compromising on thermal performance, acoustic insulation or even security.

A+ energy rated triple glazing to make your living spaces even more comfortable

Double glazing is widely accepted as an energy efficient, thermally insulating and all round better performing choice of glazing for windows. Fortunately, Kingfisher windows has gone one step further and now offers an even better solution – triple glazing.

What is triple glazing?

The easiest way to describe triple glazing is that it has 3 panels of glass. It uses the same key design as double glazing – it is made using two think panes of 4mm glass which are separated by an insulation space and a central reinforced pane. The extra layer of reinforced glass slows the escape of heat from your home, deters thieves and makes your living spaces more comfortable.

What’s so good about triple glazing from Kingfisher?

Here at Kingfisher, we only want to pass on the best quality glazing to people like you. That’s why we can manufacture our windows using Planitherm Total + triple glazing. A part of Europe’s best-selling range of high performance low-emissivity glass (low-E glass), Planitherm products use the very latest advancements in thermally insulating glass coating technology.

Combined with Kingfisher’s quality frames, manufacture and installation, it is easy to achieve a high level of solar heat gain, capture warmth from natural daylight and draw it into your home. Together with a warm-edge spacer bar and insulating frames, this creates a window that will achieve the maximum Windows Energy Rating of A+.

How will it benefit me?

Even if you have insulated the rest of your house well, inefficient glazing can create cold spots that surround the windows at night. These cause draughts, draw heat away from you if you sit next to them, and result in streams of condensation running down the panes. Triple glazing shouldn’t be underestimated – it will make the insulation of your house consistent throughout.

Equally, bearing in mind that double glazing can save you up to £80 on heating bills, you can imagine how much of a difference that an extra glazing layer can make. This is hugely beneficial, especially in the Winter months when heating costs rise.

Whether you in the centre of Leeds city, next to a noisy farm or right on a main road, triple glazing can significantly reduce noise and enhance security. Combined with Planitherm glass (which lets more natural light in and less heat out), our triple glazing really helps you to make the most of your living spaces.

Benefits of upgrading to energy efficient windows

Replacing all single glazed windows in a typical semi-detached house with our A-rated frames will give you a saving of up to £4000 over 10 years on fuel bills. To help us achieve A-rated windows, Kingfisher uses Planitherm Glass, a brand of low-E glass that is designed to stop heat escaping by reflecting it back into a room, whilst capturing warmth from natural sunlight, keeping your home warmer naturally.

Enhanced thermal performance with Planitherm

Planitherm Glass offers a number of key benefits that clearly differentiate it from standard double glazing and other low-E glazing. Planitherm double glazed units are soft coated, offering significantly better thermal insulation compared to hard coated low-E products:

  • Planitherm softcoat low-E glass inner pane reflects heat back into the room (low U value)
  • Diamant glass outer pane helps capture heat from the sun (G value)
  • Enhanced thermal insulation compared to standard double glazing
  • Eliminates cold areas around windows
  • Warmer glass surface helps to reduce condensation on the inner pane
  • Argon gas filled units reduce heat loss through the double glazing

Other features of Planitherm Glass include

  • Maximises the amount of natural light into the home
  • Exceptional clarity, without haze or tint effects
  • Improved noise absorption qualities for a quieter living space

Kingfisher double glazed windows also feature an Edgetech warm edge spacer bar, which separate the panes of glass in a double glazed unit. These conduct less heat or cold than traditional aluminium spacer bars, for the ultimate insulated windows.
