IGU for double glazed sliding doors

 
         
   

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 sliding doors. . . . ]

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.   Examine all the facts on double glazed draft proof page

In addition, improving the curb appeal of your home with designer high performance windows can increase the property resale value. How valuable are your family’s comfort and peace of mind? You can be confident that our Double Glazed Windows and Doors will help you meet and exceed the requirements of the BASIX legislation, add a little luxury without adversely affecting the environment!
