Double Glazing

Double Glazing, insulated glazing, double glass, triple glass, double pane, triple pane and triple glazing are different words for the same thing but with possible slight variation. To put it in simple terms, they are double or triple window panes separated by a "spacer"to seal the multiple glass pieces and keep gas space between them. The Glass pieces are separated to by air or gas filled space to decrease the heat and noise from transferring across.
