Glass

Windows aren’t just part of your home’s framework. They can add light and life, warmth and beauty.

That’s why choosing the right glass is so important.

Energy efficiency

High performance glass solutions, for example,  
Low-e combined with argon gas, help create a living environment that’s completely comfortable - making your home feel 'just right'. 
 

Energy efficient glass

Safety

Safety glass has additional safety features that make it less likely to break, or less likely to pose a threat when broken.  It can also offer superior sound and fading control.

Safety glass

Double glazing

There’s nothing like coming home to a cosy, warm, dry home. Double glazed windows can help reduce noise, glare, and fading of furnishings; and increase security and comfort. 

Double glazing

Tinted

Minimise fading of your furnishings, carpets, curtains and artwork with glass that can decrease the amount of UV, visible light and heat that passes through your windows. 

Tinted glass

Sound proof

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. 

Sound proof glass


Get to know your glass

R-value
The thermal resistance of the total window system (including glass, spacer and joinery type). The higher the R-value, the less heat that is lost through the system and the better the insulation.

Visible light transmission 
The percentage of visible light transmitted through the glass.
The higher the VLT, the more natural light enters the room.

Low-emissivity (low-e) glass
An almost invisible coating lets light and energy into your home and reflects heat back indoors, forming a shield against the cold. In warmer climates low-e glass can be used to keep heat out.

Shading co-efficient
The ratio of total solar heat gain through a particular glass type compared to the total heat gain through 3mm clear glass. The lower the shading co-efficient, the more the glass restricts the transfer of solar heat.

Argon
A noble gas used inside a double or triple glazed unit. It restricts the transfer of heat and provides greater insulation.
