Manufactured Locally  
   

Houses are built to live in, not to look on; therefore, let use be preferred before uniformity, except where both may be had.

We consider our production facility advanced and far superior to any that is used by our competitors in China and India. We utilize, innovate and improve manufacturing techniques used in high growth industries such as nonotechnology, informatics, pervasive computing, analytical instrumentation, and opto-electronics for production automation and focus on service through education and training for our staff.

We have come to the conclusion that there are critical defects with most windows and doors, or parts that are imported from China and India, despite the image of a brand. We know this because we have witnessed many faults, omissions, flaws and oversights that made the final product hideous at best and dangerous at worst. We have a special team of technicians who perform repairs on such product, that no-one else is prepared to work with.

An intelligent consumer, who understands the value of learning from the mistakes of others, will consider the following:

  • Glass: Imported glass can readily be identified by streaking or looping effect or even contaminated inclusions which significantly alter visibility and skew the image. Check to ensure that doors have safety glass, which is the minimum requirement of Australian Standards. Float glass in doors can be life-threatening to the victim in the event of an accident. Bathroom windows should have obscure safety glass, and this is often overlooked with imported glass products. Many a time former customers of such importers have had a cheaper alternative fitted instead of the correct item. For example, most customers blindly believe that they have low-e glass because that is what they paid for, when they actually have ordinary float glass. Also, a thinner glass may have been substituted for a thicker one, most often 6.38mm and 6.38mm glass within the Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) is replaced by cheaper 4mm and 4mm glass combination. We fail to see the advantages of trying to import glass or insulated glass units - surely the cost to replace all the broken units together with transportation and compliance costs are greater than the price difference for locally made glass. Alternatively, importers of these defective products have no regard for the consumer's safety and their obligations.
  • Frame/ Profile: There are dozens of different grades of extrusion. A common feature of imported double glazed windows and doors is that the frame chamber and thickness is inferior, is very thin and does not contain reinforcement. This thickness, as well as use of only one chamber is useless for noise insulation and energy efficiency. Mostly importers of Chinese and Indian made upvc double glazed windows and doors use a low-grade profile with inferior chemical composition - with lead and without UV protection. It will become obvious as the profile will quickly degenerate and if white, will turn yellow and if coloured will lighten. Absence of reinforcement in the frame can cause the window or door to warp, bend or even collapse onto itself.
  • Hardware: Test results have shown that hardware imported from China rarely passes equivalent of 3 year operational cycle test. In addition, clients that live in coastal areas will have their hardware affected by salt, and since Chinese made hardware has no corrosion protection it will require a lot of maintenance. We have even seen examples of rust on windows due to Chinese assemblers fitting the wrong type of screw in the window. Most importantly, the double glazed window or door can have inappropriate hardware installed, and worse, insufficient quantity of tilt arm which can be dangerous causing the sash to fall out of the frame.

To find out more about the effort we go to ensuring our upvc Double Glazed Windows and Doors are manufactured to the highest possible standard, with the consistency to match, please visit the product specifications and technical pages.

By buying your windows and doors from us, you will not only be confident that all components as well as the actual window or door were manufactured in accordance with Australian Standards, but also you will have the most sophisticated and high performance windows and doors available in Australia. We offer value for money by being lean, cost efficient business and passing the savings onto our clients. By buying direct from us - the local manufacturer, there will be no need for an expensive middleman or transportation costs, and you will be injecting more money into the local economy, and reducing energy consumption and your footprint on the environment.

This industry is undergoing rapid change and we are well placed for sustainable growth by staying close to customers and their problems. We have a competitive advantage to our competitors who import from China and India in many ways:

  • Customisation: There is a growing trend and requirement for Double Glazed Windows and Doors that are customized to a specific application or unique specifications such as noise insulation, energy efficiency, luxury residences and environmentally friendly buildings.
  • Collaboration & Commercialisation: We collaborate with customers, architects and builders in new product development which also builds strong relationships and repeat business. A competitor that imports from China is less mobile, less adaptable to change and less interested in customer needs because of the cost to implement changes overseas.
  • Adapting new technologies & Streamlining processes: We see endless opportunities to develop new products and serve specific needs by using technology developed by large corporations. By adopting the latest programmable controllers, industrial computers, servo drives, and composite materials, our machinery is always upgraded.

Unfortunately, the tempting cheap price of many Chinese and Indian manufacturers is derived not only from substitution inferior components and non existent quality assessments, but from cheap labour. A factory worker in China or India is paid the equivalent of about $30 per week. They have no super, and often work in a poor and an unsafe working environment. But everyone deserves a fair opportunity to work and support their family - but by purchasing cheap imitations are the consumers encouraging further exploitation forming into a poverty cycle? By contrast our staff work in a comfortable environment where Occupational Health and Safety is taken seriously and strictly adhered to by all staff. The advanced manufacturing methods and processes have allowed for greater precision, shortened production time and re-skilled our staff who are experts in their respective fields. Many of both simple and complicated tasks are performed by machinery leaving skilled decision makers to generate ideas and solving client problems by using experience and innovation. The staff are paid above award wages including compulsory superannuation and contributions to Work Cover. We also pay tax which is then redistributed by the government, and benefits Australians at federal, state and local levels.

Many of the raw materials we use are imported because there are no manufacturers here that make upvc window hardware, plastic extrusion and rubber seal. The labour content of cutting, welding, drilling, screwing, assembly etc meets sufficient criteria to have our products deemed as being 'Australian Made'. Our Double Glazed Windows and Doors not only meet, but exceed the minimum Australian Standards, because of the careful selection of our suppliers and our advanced precision manufacturing techniques. Our competitors that merely resell widows and doors made in China, simply can't control what they don't make themselves. As a result, consumers pay additional cost in replacing damaged or defected windows and doors, there is extended waiting time due to shipping delays and there are additional maintenance expenses in the long run.

Low Maintenace

 

Upvc is the ideal frame material due to its inherent qualities of resistance to corrosion, fire, water, and sunlight. Apart from the most obvious applications in coastal areas where salt destroys the appearance and function of aluminium windows, while wooden windows must be specially treated with chemicals or paint, upvc frames have also been used in commercial and industrial applications and in areas of high pollution or for high impact winds. In addition, the upvc composition includes ultra-violet components, which reflect the sunlight and resist damage. The profile will not warp because it contains aluminium or steel reinforcement and wont need to be repainted, chemically treated, polished or cleaned. However, cleaning may be required for glass, intermittently, as desired, which will be necessary regardless of the frame material used. Our upvc Double Glazed Windows and Doors are ideal for the get and forget consumer! The low maintenance factor of upvc windows and doors exceeds that of any other frame material, saves your time and energy for the important things in life!   Continued on the double glazed low maintenace page

 
     
 

Environmentally Friendly

 

Our Upvc Windows and Doors are ecologically sustainable in many ways: they are 100% recyclable; the non-lead stabilizers make the profile safe for children (upvc products even have medical applications in neonatal care), save energy and carbon emissions by being thermally efficient; do not contribute to deforestation or alumina smelter pollution. Research shows that the most promising potential for lowering environmental impacts of windows is expected to be through the optimisation of the design and specific construction processes, which means increasing the quality of the windows with respect to their main function of saving heating energy in the use phase (e.g. lowering the specific heat loss). Raising the amount of secondary material used, or lowering the amount of material required for the same function, may be another ground for optimization of the constructions.   For supplementary material on double glazed environmentally friendly click here

 
     
 

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. A standard aluminium sliding window can add 40% heating/ cooling loss in the home. Would you purchase an appliance that can only ever operate at a maximum 60% capacity? 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!   Great suggestions and more on double glazed high performance can be found here

 
     
 

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.   For more information double glazed added security

 
     
 

High Quality Hardware

 

Hardware is an integral part of the window without which the window would not function, and would not open. Quality hardware is essential for smooth operation, especially if double glazing in involved, which can significantly add to the weight of the window or door and fracture any inferior hardware, rendering the window unsafe. After performing many repairs on windows supplied by our competitors, we decided to make our window hardware a point of difference. We sourced hardware among the worlds leading suppliers, for very specialized, high performance applications to ensure that our clients are not disappointed with any aspect of the window or door. Our accomplishment as leaders of innovative solutions for complicated or difficult projects, and our creative cooperation with window hardware suppliers, has created a upvc hardware combination of unsurpassed quality, tested to withstand min of 20,000 cycles and guarantees flawless operation for the users for many years.   For supplementary material on double glazed high quality hardware click here

 
     
 

BASIX Compliance

 

With greater concerns about the environmentally detrimental methods and materials of traditional building practices, the government introduced special measures to minimise the long term impact on the environment. By using our products in your home, you will improve the rating of your home, because double glazing rates higher than single glazing in analysis and pvc rates higher than aluminium in terms of thermal performance. In addtion, consider strategic placement of windows and doors to maximise natural light but limit the exposure to midday summer sun, by utilising shade from nearby trees, other buidings, orientation, area and other factors.   Read more on double glazed basix compliance

 
     
 

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.   For a detailed discussion on the subject of double glazed corrosion resistance click here

 
     
 

UV Resistance

 

We only use quality extrusion that has been rigorously tested for UV radiation in harsh environments in desert or mountain conditions. The profile has been specifically formulated for Australian conditions to thwart potential damage from the sun. Un-reinforced uPVC window profiles have a lack of rigidity and a high coefficient of expansion. To avoid preventable damage, we always reinforce all our windows and door frames with aluminium or steel, according to customer requirements.   Examine all the facts on double glazed uv resistance page

 
     
 

Waterproof

 

uPVC Double Glazed Windows and Doors are constructed with the highest precision to keep out water during the rain, storms and even cyclones and have been used many times in marine applications, where their quality is heavily tested. They are far more waterproof than other types of windows as they don't absorb moisture. They will not leak (a common complaint of many owners of aluminium sliding windows) nor will they be damaged by water and rot (a potential problem with wooden windows).   Get the answers on your questions on double glazed waterproof on this page

 
     
 

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.   Get the answers on your questions on double glazed draft proof on this page

Climate Control

 

The power of the sun is generally underestimated. In one home, we measured 7kW of solar energy per hour on a sunny day in January, which is enough to some of your home appliances including air conditioners and heaters. This means that the same amount of energy is heating your home as you are using on an appliance to cool it! Upto 40% of heat or cold, depending on the season, can be escaping your home through badly insulated windows. Would you buy an appliance if you were told it could only operate at 60% capacity? And yet if your windows and doors have an inadequate u value score, you could be undermining your efforts to cool/ heat your home. Double Glazed Windows and Doors offer full control of your surroundings through a tight weather seal to insulate your home and make it energy efficient.   Continued on the double glazed climate control page

This is why for all replacement windows and doors and some new constructions, our trained technicians will take their own measurements before manufacture. All of our double glazed windows and doors are manufactured to a high accuracy, so ideally you should get the closest fit possible.   For supplementary material on double glazed measuring your window click here

 
     
 

PrestigeD T84

 

Rehau quality stands for ambition and power, and these ideas are represented well in the Prestige casement upvc window and door system. The thickness of glazing ranges from 5mm to 33 mm. This double glazed window and door system comes with an overlap that measures 8 to 10 mm located between frame and sash, and this overlap not only helps to eliminate water infiltration and dust penetration, but also aids in saving energy consumption. Design optimisation of reinforcement chambers makes the double glazed window and door made of this profile highly resistant to high wind pressure.   For more information double glazed prestiged t84

 
     
 

Colours

 

We appreciate the need to live in harmony with one's surroundings, both architecturally and environmentally, that is why our extensive range of colour combinations attracts many professionals seeking the combination of an eclectic colour range with a cutting edge technology. Our double glazed window and door colour profiles can be manufactured so that the profile beneath the veneer is not white, but has been made to match the veneer colour. The advantage of this method is, that in the event of an accidental damage to the surface, white fragments will not be visible and the double glazed window or door retains its original aesthetic appearance.
