Will the touchfoil™ work through double glazing?

It is not recommended for the touchfoil™ to be used through double glazing as the performance will be either be significantly reduced or prevented from working because of the following:

  • Size of the air gap between the glazing
  • Most recent installations have metal coatings which prevent the touchfoil working
    • If you are able to make the touch work you will only achieve “point and press” no drag

Our recommendation is to replace the glass with single glazing if this is possible

If you do wish to attempt to use the touchfoil you will need to test each site for functionality. There are devices which can test the construction of the glass (including if there is a metal coating) such as www.merlinlazer.com/Low-E-Coating-Detector-NEW
