Fixed Double Glazed Windows are a part of almost every order, because of their universally attractive design, as well as their excellent acoustic and thermal properties: the well-insulating multi-chambered system minimise heating/cooling costs and maximise security and dimensional stability. The sound-insulation benefits that are attributable to Fixed Double Glazed windows allow you to enjoy the serenity and harmony in your home while the maintenance-free, weatherproof and age-resistant material guarantees a long-lasting attractive appearance. Metal reinforcement inside each window ensures a high degree of security and structural integrity. Actually, test results show that Fixed Double Glazed windows perform better than other windows types across all parameters, while being the most price competitive, all of which is due to the fact that they are non-operable (not opening).

IGU for double glazed fixed windows

 
         
 

Double Glazed Units or IGU are the intelligent choice for consumers who appreciate performance and quality, and are supplied based on thermal or acoustic requirements.
We use 32mm insulated sealed units made locally and fulfilling all the requirements of Australian Standards for glass and glazing. Glazing options include Float, Laminated, Toughened, Low-e, Tinted and Obscure glass.
The air space between the glass layers may be filled with air or an inert gas, such as argon or krypton which improves thermal and acoustic performance and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by saving energy!

 
         
 

There are many benefits to utilizing double glazing in your home, and apart from substantial improvement in thermal and acoustic comfort our customers report a reduction in energy costs, elimination of condensation, a considerable decline in fading of furniture and artwork and improvement in visual attractiveness and increase in the resale value of your home. In addition, for clients with older homes that retained original features, the existing glass may not meet the current Australian standards and may even be deemed unsafe. This is especially true of doors & bathroom windows, where safety glass and obscure glass, respectively, is not only desirable but mandatory! Take this opportunity to upgrade the windows and doors in your home and enjoy the benefits now and in the future!    [ IGU for double glazed fixed windows. . . . ]

Draft Proof

 

There are significant savings in electricity that will pay for your windows in 6-7 years and will reduce your CO2 emissions by about 100-150kg per year. For an indication of energy efficiency of a window or door, look for the U-value or R-value. U-value measures the overall heat transfer coefficient, or how well the window/door conducts heat and is also the inverse of the R-value. The lower the U-value, the greater a window's resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value. Our windows boast a value of 1.8, which means they perform three times better than an aluminium framed window with a typical value of 5.4-5.6. And since windows can contribute to between 15-40% energy loss in a building, installing the most energy efficient windows available should be the intelligent homeowner's priority.   Additional information on double glazed draft proof can be found at this location

 
     
 

Added Security

 

Our Double Glazed Windows and Doors are difficult to break and when they break, they create a lot of noise. Our window units also come equipped with security systems such as multi-point locks, double-locking handles and hinge-side security devices. Windows made out of upvc, can only be forced open from outside with a great deal of ingenuity, time and physical strength. This is because plastic provides a tighter seal around the glass and it does not shrink like wooden frames sometimes do.   Extra information about double glazed added security can be found here

 
     
 

Corrosion Resistance

 

Window Factory Double Glazed Windows and Doors exceed expectations in many hostile environments that are not suitable for other types of materials. Due to the unique properties of upvc, the frame maintains high tensile strength and modulus over a moderate temperature range, low thermal conductivity, and excellent chemical and corrosion resistance to a variety of aggressive substances. In general upvc has good acid and alkali resistance as well as excellent vapour barrier properties and excellent UV resistance. Upvc frames provide many construction advantages due to the material's inherent corrosion resistance, lightweight, ease of fabrication, and other labor-saving characteristics. In addition, upvc frames are high precision and can be manufactured to a tolerable value of +/-3mm, which is ideal for demanding architectural applications.   Get all the facts on double glazed corrosion resistance

High Performance

 

For windows and doors that do more than just open and close, but actually work for you to reduce your household or office energy bill by utilizing an energy efficient profile system and double glazing. Convenient and comfortable in many ways, they are an essential part of insulating your home or office, for a more sustainable living experience.

But this is essentially what you are doing when your home is poorly insulated! The same high performance extends to acoustic insulation, with a potential reduction of 45dB in our casement, awning, tilt&turn and bifold range. The high-tech weather seal in combination with fusion welding of frames and sashes make the windows completely air and water tight - they have been tested to withstand even cyclone strength winds!   Additional information on double glazed high performance can be found at this location
