Windows & Doors

Double Glazed:

Benefits of Double Glazing Windows/Doors:
ZZ

Warmer in winter: Double glazing is the ideal form of insulation, with up to 50-70% of home heat lost through single-glazed windows. Double glazing also helps capture and store a higher percentage of the natural heat from the winter sun.

ZZ

Cooler in summer: Double glazing insulates your home against extremes of temperature, trapping some of the summer sun’s rays and minimising the heat which burns through your windows on hot, sunny days.

ZZ

Reduces energy usage: Because there’s less need for heating systems you’ll be reducing energy consumption, which saves on your power bills and helps the environment.

ZZ

Reduces condensation: Condensation can be a serious problem, particularly in older homes, as it causes mould and mildew, and in some cases, it will also rot timber window frames and damage your family’s health. Double glazing works to reduce excess moisture on your window panes.

ZZ

Reduces noise: Double gazing reduces noise for a calmer, quieter home. High performance double glazing can reduce outside noise by up to 60%, making it a great investment if you live by a busy road

Benefits of Triple Glazing Windows/Doors:

ZZ

REDUCED ENERGY BILLS: Though double glazing is known to be energy efficient, triple glazing is even more so. It allows for extremely good solar heat gain, capturing heat from sunlight and absorbing it into the home. The low-emissivity (low-E) coating on the interior glass, prevents that heat and heat generated inside the home from being lost to the outside again by reflecting it back inside. This creates a more even temperature inside the house while requiring less energy to heat the area, thereby reducing energy consumption and subsequent energy bills.

 

ZZ

BETTER SECURITY: Double glazing is harder to break than single glazing. By adding a third layer of glass in triple glazing, the window becomes even stronger and more impenetrable. To prevent thermal stress cracking, the central pane of glass is also tempered, further increasing the strength of the window unit.

ZZ

INCREASED COMFORT LEVELS: Cold spots and draughts are eliminated in triple glazing. Since the window is made together with the frame and not retrofitted on site, the chances of gaps within the frame is eliminated. By using a registered installer, you can also be ensured that there will be no gaps between the frame and the surrounding structure. By eliminating cold air from coming in, you will have an even interior temperature in your home.

Triple glazed windows are a completely different class of window that takes domestic thermal and acoustic insulation to a whole new level. They not only reduce energy bills and increase security and comfort levels, but also increases the property’s value in the real estate market.
