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!

Hardware for double glazed awning windows

 
 

Twin-cam Security Lock (TSL)

 
  Twin-cam Security Lock (TSL). Up to eight locking points with adjustable twin-cams offer even greater security against burglary. The unique gear mechanism operates the reverse-action twin cams. All cams engage in behind individual recesses on both sides of the striker; in both the locking and night-vent position.
Attempts to force a cam out of its locked position only drive the other cam deeper into its recess. The "Twin-cam Security Lock" stands for high security and effective resistance against lateral forces as well as easy operation.
 
       
 

The Espagnolette Handle

 
  The MK3 espagnolette handles are ideal for use with outward opening window systems, including TSL. Operation of the handle is achieved by simply pushing the button and opening to a holding position. The handle will automatically re-locate to a locked position upon closure. The key supplied will provide a deadlock to the cylinder.

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.   Get the answers on your questions on double glazed climate control on this page
