Why Settle With Double Glazing When You Can Have Triple?
All Our PVC Double Glazed Windows Can Be Upgraded To Triple Glazing
Modern Australian homes are incorporating ever-greater expanses of glass, with customers demanding windows that make the most of our country’s natural beauty and plentiful sunlight. You might think that keeping such homes at a cozy temperature would cost a small fortune in energy bills, but they can actually be remarkably affordable thanks to double glazing technology.
Double glazed windows consist of two panes of glass, with a cushion of gas sealed between them. This system provides superior thermal insulation for your home and has a range of other benefits, including reduced ambient noise and improved security. There are also many different types of glass available, so you can always choose a double glazed window that is perfectly suited to your needs. Keep reading to discover what the different varieties of glass can offer and which one is best for your home.
Low-E glass reflects sunlight and provides maximum insulation for your home, making it ideal for combatting the extremes of Australian weather. Besides reducing your energy bills, Low-E glass also protects your furniture and floors from fading caused by overexposure to sunlight.
Standard double glazed windows are already great at reducing outside noises, but if you live under a flight path or by a major road you may want to try something even more effective. Acoustic glass is specifically designed to block out sound waves, allowing you to enjoy some well-deserved peace and quiet.
If you live in a rough neighbourhood, consider choosing security glass to safeguard your home against vandals or intruders. Each pane of glass is reinforced with a protective laminate that makes it almost unbreakable.
Solar control glass is designed to filter sunlight, brightening your living spaces while cutting out uncomfortable glare, protecting your floors and furniture from fading, and even reducing your risk of skin cancer. It’s an ideal choice for large panoramic windows or glass roofs.
Installing double glazed windows is a smart investment for any homeowner, and one major reason for this is their long lifespan. Assuming they are designed and installed correctly, you could be enjoying the benefits of your double glazed windows for 30 years or more.
Most double glazed windows are made from a material known as uPVC, which is incredibly durable and requires virtually no maintenance. uPVC frames are engineered to handle extreme weather conditions and will never warp, rust, fade, or rot, making them an ideal choice. However, high quality and properly-treated timber frames can also be extremely resilient.
If you’re thinking about getting some double glazed windows installed, we recommend making a checklist with all the features that are most important to you – whether it’s extra security, noise reduction, or something else – and taking this list to a local double glazing specialist. Our experts will be able to organise a solution that meets all your needs.
