Double Glazing is a great product if you are serious about doing things the right way when it comes to home comfort.
Since windows account for the majority of heat gain in Summer AND significant heat loss in Winter, double glazing is a fantastic solution to make your home more efficient and comfortable year-round.
Why Should You Install Double Glazing?
The advantages of double glazing are:
- Warm air is kept in during the Winter
- Cool air is kept in during the Summer
- Noise is kept out
- Less condensation inside the windows
- Heightened security
- Increased value of your home
- Reduction in electricity consumption

What Makes our Double-Glazing Superior?
Because we are serious about energy efficiency, our supplier is one of the few manufacturers who have obtained WERS testing on all of their products.
The Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) is an organization that enables windows and glazing products to be rated and compared based on their ‘whole of window’ performance.
This means WERS tests not just the glass, but the window frame as well (super important!)
For a manufacturer to participate and be rated in WERS, they must submit their products to an independent testing authority accredited by the Australian Fenestration Rating Council.
Very few, if any, of our competitors have accredited their product through the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS), which is a subset of the Australian Window Associated. To quote the website:
To participate in WERS, window makers must obtain energy ratings for their products from a rating organisation that is accredited by the AFRC (Australian Fenestration Rating Council). WERS is independent of any one manufacturer and acts as a fair, rigorous and credible system for testing performance claims. WERS-rated windows must meet all relevant Australian standards. The scheme forms part of the quality assurance that smart manufacturers offer their customers. It is all about certified performance.
In other words, if the product is not accredited through WERS, there is no guarantee of the thermal performance of the glazing based on Australian standards.
Many of our competitors will quote thermal conductivity values (U-values) that are not based on Australian performance standards and are instead based on European performance standards. The European values generally sound more impressive (such as U-values of less than 1), but these performance values are simply not achievable when measured against Australian performance measures (a U-value less than 1 is not realistic).
Our products (manufactured by Australian Glass and Glazing) are listed here and the performance values are verifiable through WERS.
Nearly all of our competitors have their windows fabricated overseas. While this does allow them to keep costs lower, from a customer’s point of view it means a long period between payment of deposit (typically up to 3 or more months) and, if there are any mis-measurements, breakages or other installation issues, the turnaround time to rectify can also be substantial.
Our units are manufactured in Adelaide (Londsdale area) and we can generally promise installation within 4 weeks of deposit payment. If there are any issues with the glazing units or installation that requires changes to the windows, it is easy top turn this around quickly.
Also, after sales service is far better supported by having the manufacturer located in the Adelaide Metro area.

The Benefits of Double-Glazed Windows and Doors
Energy Efficient Properties of Double-Glazed Windows and Doors
uPVC windows and doors are designed to enhance the indoor living comfort of your environment by maintaining the internal temperature, creating a high performing and energy efficient home.
Temperature fluctuations in your home can lead to increased heating and cooling costs during the warmer and cooler months of the year. The thermal insulation properties of our windows and doors can help to reduce your energy costs by up to 70% by minimizing heat gain during Summer, and heat loss during Winter.
Create a comfortable living space for your family with our acoustically insulated double glazed windows.
The multi-chamber uPVC frame of our window system can help to reduce outside noise by up to 80%, making it the perfect solution for those living in high traffic areas, nearby to public transport systems or flight paths.
No Maintenance Required
Regardless of whether you live in a coastal, tropical or area prone to severe weather conditions, our double-glazed window and door solutions do not require regular re-painting or maintenance – which can often be expensive.
Thanks to the high-quality engineering of our product, you can rest easy knowing the uPVC frakes will not corrode, rot or warp even in the harshest conditions.
To care for your window or door system, simply wash down with water and a mild detergent, and lubricate the hardware components to keep functioning as new for many years to come!
Our double-glazed window and door frames are constructed from Bal Rated 29 uPVC, making them the sensible choice for those who live in bush fire prone areas.
As well as being self-extinguishing, our window and door frames will not ignite, even when faced with the most extreme weather conditions.
