Glass

 

 

Constructed primarily from silica sand, glass also incorporates alkaline substances and limestone (sodium carbonate CaCO3) in its composition. To achieve various colors, elements like cobalt, copper, nickel, and titanium are added, producing shades from blue to black and yellowish-brown. For a translucent or opaque finish, fluorine or phosphates are used to create crystalline inclusions in the glass. Glass is exceptionally sustainable, being 100% recyclable and adaptable to numerous uses without any loss of integrity or appearance. It does not fade, corrode, or deteriorate, making it an ideal choice for building materials.

The development of new glass technologies has facilitated the creation of curved glass structures, glass bricks, and extensive glass facades. In Sydney, our manufacture of UPVC double glazed windows utilizes this versatile material not only for its aesthetic appeal but also for its structural reliability. These energy efficient windows enhance any home's design while providing significant environmental benefits.

 


Float Glass

Float Glass

A minute fraction of tin embeds itself on the side of the glass that touches the tin bath, which is then often used to manufacture mirrors due to its ease of silvering. This side is also notably softer and more prone to scratching.
Tinted Glass

Tinted Glass

The tint's intensity depends on the glass's thickness; thicker glass results in a deeper color and greater heat absorption, raising the potential for thermal breakage. Thus, using toughened or heat-strengthened glass is advisable.
Toughened Glass

Toughened Glass

Tempered glass, also known as safety glass, is renowned for its enhanced strength and safety features. This type of glass is crafted through a thermal tempering process where normal annealed glass is heated to its softening point.
Laminated Glass

Laminated Glass

Laminated glass consists of two or more layers of glass with a Poly Vinyl Butyral (PVB) interlayer, which bonds chemically and mechanically to the glass, providing both safety and performance features.
Low E Glass

Low E Glass

Low-E glass in energy efficient windows filters long-wave solar radiation, reducing heat gain and keeping your home cooler. It blocks UV radiation and reflects infrared radiation, minimizing heat buildup.
IGUnit Glass

IGUnit Glass

The insulative properties come from the air space between the glass layers, which can be filled with air or inert gases like argon or krypton for better performance. Desiccants are used to prevent condensation and improve insulation.
Glass Warranty

Glass Warranty

Regardless of the type of glass chosen for your uPVC double glazed windows and double glazed doors, our warranty commitment guarantees high quality. All glass in our energy efficient windows meets Australian standards.
