Sound reducing glass (acoustic laminated glass) provides an extra level of comfort by reducing noise within the home; without compromising light or style. An excellent solution for homes close to busy roads or anywhere where excessive noise is an issue.
Minimise fading of your furnishings, carpets, curtains and artwork with a range of tinted glass that can decrease the amount of UV, visible light and heat that passes through your windows.
Safety glass is less likely to break, or cause serious injury when broken - keeping you and your family safe an sound.
Why choose toughened or laminated safety glass?
Toughened glass can improve the safety of doors and windows that are not very high off the floor and is safer than regular glass when broken as it breaks into tiny blunt pieces.
Laminated glass is much harder to break through and does not shatter like regular glass; instead it "spiderwebs" from the centre. This offers improved security as there is no opening created, which would allow someone to reach in to open the door or window and gain access to your home.
Thermal efficiency of windows and doors is measured by R-value. This is the thermal resistance of the total window system (including glass, thermal spacer and joinery). The higher the R-value, the less heat is lost through the system, and the better the insulation.
If you’re looking for increased energy efficiency and comfort in your living environment, adding Low-E high performance glass and argon gas to your double or tripled glazed unit provides even better results.
The right glazing options for your home and the costs involved will depend on a number of things. You’ll need to consider factors like lifestyle, climate, noise levels and where your windows are positioned.
There’s nothing like coming back to a cosy, warm, home. Double glazed windows can help reduce noise, glare, and fading of furnishings; and increase security and comfort.
