A decade on from the original event, warm-edge experts Edgetech will again be asking the Triple Glazing Question.
On Wednesday 27th March 2024, the Quanex company will bring hundreds of leading figures from across UK glass and glazing to Coventry’s CBS Arena.
Over a day packed with discussion and debate, attendees will assess whether triple glazing is now destined to become the new normal in British fenestration.
It was on the 10th April 2014 that the sector’s senior figures first gathered at the same venue (then known as the Ricoh Arena) to tackle the issue.
Back then, the consensus was clear – the industry wasn’t ready for a large-scale shift to triple glazing. ‘Clever’ doubles seemed a much more viable solution.
Now, the landscape has shifted dramatically. Soaring energy prices and Britain’s net zero commitment have seen triple glazing put back in the spotlight.
With the government’s Future Homes Standard fast approaching, some believe an industry-wide transition is now inevitable.
For Edgetech, it meant the time felt right to return to the Triple Glazing Question, as Managing Director Chris Alderson explains:
“Ten years ago, Edgetech held a landmark event that sought to clarify the future of the glass and glazing industry.
“Triple glazing had existed for decades, but it remained a niche product. At the first Triple Glazing Question, Edgetech asked whether that was liable to change.
“As anyone who attended that day will remember, the answer was a resounding ‘no’.
“Now, we feel enough has changed to warrant asking that question again.
“In March 2024, we’ll be inviting fabricators, installers, IGU manufacturers, component suppliers and others to join us in Coventry to share their views on one of the biggest topics facing our industry.
“We’d be delighted if you would join us to help shape the future of British fenestration.”
More details about the event, including the agenda, ticketing, sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities will be announced in the coming months. For more information, please call 02476 639931 or visit www.edgetechig.co.uk
