Edgetech is calling on leading figures from across the industry to join it once again in asking ‘The Triple Glazing Question’.
On Wednesday 27th March 2024, the manufacturer is revisiting its 2014 initiative to discuss the topics of the day at Coventry’s CBS Arena.
Back then, the consensus was that the industry wasn’t ready for a large-scale shift to triple glazing and ‘Clever’ doubles seemed a much more viable solution, say organisers, but now the landscape has shifted dramatically with soaring energy prices and Britain’s net zero commitment putting triple glazing back in the spotlight.
With the government’s Future Homes Standard fast approaching, some believe an industry-wide transition is now inevitable.
Edgetech MD Chris Alderson explained: “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.”
More details about the event, including the agenda, ticketing, sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities will be announced in the coming months.
