Whether you crave visual impact or long for unpretentious reserved elegance, the Tilt & Turn Double Glazed door can blend in with any style of the building, and the options for customisation of glass, hardware and additions are almost infinite!

The mechanics of the Tilt and Turn Double Glazed door has the added benefit that, with the turn of a handle, the sash can be opened in the tilt position for overhead ventilation or for ease of cleaning. The Tilt and Turn doors are designed to tilt in, but although it is possible to have the sash tilting out, it is not advisable, since moisture and dirt may be able to get inside if the Tilt and Turn Double Glazed Door was left in a tilt position during a storm. The tilting mechanism is restricted by hardware inside and around the frame and sash, so there is no danger of it tilting too much.

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!   For more information double glazed high performance

 
     
 

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 more information double glazed uv resistance

 
     
 

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.   Get the answers on your questions on double glazed high quality hardware on this page

 
     
 

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.

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 the answers on your questions on double glazed corrosion resistance on this page
