Triple glazing is a popular choice for reducing external noises. This is true however not in some cases.
Triple glazed windows can only prevent noise penetration when all the three glass panes are of different thickness but not equal thickness. A double glazed unit can outperform a tripled glazed unit on noise penetration if the panes of glass are thick.
