double glass pane

Doublepane-glass - These windows feature two panes of standard low thermal emissivity, or Low-E, glass, separated by a spacer. The pocket between the two layers of glass is filled with argon gas and sealed. Argon gas is a inert gas that is non-toxic, colorless, and odorless gas that is heavier than air and displaces the air between the glass panes, acting as an insulator. All Thompson Creek windows start with the double pane glass package by default.

triple pane glass
Triple pane windows

Triple pane windows - Triple Pane windows feature all the benefits of Double Pane windows with an added layer of thermal protection. An extra air pocket helps buffer temperature extremes. Three panes of Low-E glass add strength, energy efficiency, and durability. These windows are heavier than Double Pane windows, but offer more energy cost savings over time. The triple pane glass package is only available in our 7900 series premium windows.

sound shield glass logo
Sound shield windows

Sound shield windows - Sound Shield is our proprietary noise abatement glass that filters out up to 35% more outside noise than our double pane glass package. We recommend Sound Shield for homes in loud areas with highway traffic, airports, trains or other outside disturbances. Sound Shield is available in awning, casement, picture windows, and our 7900 series premium double-hung and picture windows.

Obscure Glass

Obscure Glass - Available with double pane and triple pane glass packages. Obscure glass or “privacy glass” has a pattern embedded into its surface, making it difficult for to see through. Recommended uses: private offices, bathroom windows, private rooms.

Tempered Glass

Tempered Glass - Available with double pane, triple pane and Sound Shield glass packages. Tempered glass is 4-5 times stronger than conventional window glass. Tempered glass undergoes compression during its formation, meaning that it’s more break resistant. If it does break, it will break into smaller, less jagged pieces for your safety. Recommended uses: bathrooms, and windows less than 60 inches off the ground.
