WCIF double glazing: 2 sealed panes with gas/dried air layer

Where'd you get them? All I can get from the chippies I talk to is Very Thick Glass, which is OK, I suppose, but would prefer double glazing.

So did anyone find out where to get double-glazed windows, and if so, what do they cost? The new place we live in has too much traffic noise, so we need a solution. I guess worst-case scenario is we have to move again which would be a shame because other than the noise, this place is perfect.

We're looking at replacing a roughly 280 x 140cm window (currently 3 panes) with something more soundproof. Contractor suggested adding a 2nd window in front of the current one (for around nt10,000), but can't imagine how that'd look/work since we'd still like to be able to have them open on occasion.

Eiger John, any chance you could PM me some info, or share here?

If double glazing isn't readily available, will two panes of glass of a different thickness with a gap in between them help to make the window more soundproof? I'm also thinking about getting some air-tight window frames (氣秘窗) with new glass. Two panes have got to be better than one, right?

Thanks
