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.

Thermal Insulation Quality of Casement Double Glazed Windows and Doors

The thermal insulation of a window depends not only on the frame material, but also on the type and size of the glazing. Upvc window characteristics can be specifically tailored to the requirements by using insulating glass or double glazing for thermal efficiency.

Feature Elements of Casement System Double Glazed Windows - Opening Out

Appealing Design: Rehau Prestige Design is characterised by its simplistic and elegant appearance.
   
Sealing: The double sealing all around the window provides double protection from draughts, dust, water, and energy losses. In addition, the overlap of 8mm, provides an extra barrier from the elements.
   
Intruder Resistance: standard Euro-groove in the profile allows easy installation of multi-point gear for added security.
   
Cleaning and Draining: With the smooth recess surface, the frame is easy to clean, while rainwater drains quickly through the drainage opening.
   
Thermal and Noise Insulation: Insulating Glass Units (IGUs) with a thickness up to 33mm can be installed, and the optimal 3 chamber element provides insulation against heat gain/loss and noise.

Acoustic Insulation Quality of Casement Double Glazed Windows and Doors

The acoustic insulation is determined by the type of glazing. The Rehau Prestige Design is able to accommodate insulating glass panes up to 20mm, allowing common types of acoustically insulating glass to be employed.

IGUnit Glass

 

or Double Glazing is described as two or more lites of glass spaced apart and hermetically sealed to form a single glazed unit with an air gap between each lite. As the name suggests, the most important function of and IGU is to improve the thermal performance of glass when used in architectural applications. It is common to find two panel of glass and they are therefore also referred to as double glazing units. Triple glazing units are rare but serve their owners well in very cold climates. Insulated glazing may be framed in a sash or frame. IGU made of glass is called insulated glass.   More info on double glazed igunit glass

 
     
 

Measuring Your Window

 

The most important part of the installation procedure for double glazed windows and doors, comes before you even order your windows. It is critical that you measure your old window opening properly and accurately. Pvc double glazed windows and doors are custom-built and can't be returned if the size ordered was inaccurate. 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.   Continued on the double glazed measuring your window page

 
     
 

Change your Schedule

 

Please note that delays by you of delivery of any order of double glazed windows and doors by more than 2 months will not be processed online, and you must speak to your sales representative to make a new arrangement. Please note that you may be required to pay a storage fee for lengthy and/or repeated delays. Failure to advise us of the changes in your availability at least 2 days before the delivery date, may make it difficult for us to make a timely change and if you are a part of multi point delivery, inconvenience other customers.   To obtain additional information on double glazed change your schedule

 
     
 

Secondary

 

Installation of Secondary Double Glazed Windows and Doors involves installing the new Double Glazed Window behind the original window frame, which is retained, so the secondary window becomes adjacent to the existing window.
Installations of Secondary Double Glazed Windows usually take less time than replacement double glazed windows depending on window size, shape and glazing and without the inconvenience that can occur during window replacement such as delays on site because of architrave removal/replacement, other site works such as painting etc.   To obtain additional information on double glazed secondary

 
     
 

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

 
     
 

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.   To obtain additional information on double glazed climate control

Sealing

 

Many people have the impression that all silicone gels on the market are the same, but we have found that their properties and, therefore, suitability varies dramatically. Generally, the descriptions of silicone offer little information as to the correct grade and type for a given application, and because of performance variability, there is no one type of silicone sealant that should be used for everything. Using the incorrect silicone or improper use may cause joint failure, contamination of surfaces because of poor application, excessive movement in the sealed joint.   Continued on the double glazed sealing page
