What’s Double Glazing Windows?

Glass glazing focuses on the number of panes within the frame. Therefore, single-pane windows only have one glass sheet in the frame.

However, double-glazing means that there are two panes of glass that sit in the frame and are separated by a special spacer. You can also have triple-glazing, with three panes of glass products, each separated by spacers.

Various factors impact the effectiveness of double-glazing, such as:

  • Gap Filling – What’s between the glass (argon gas or air) determines the energy efficiency requirements of your window system.

  • Window Frame Material – Traditionally, uPVC and aluminium are used.

  • Window Film and Glass Type – The glass thickness and whether it’s tinted or Low-E glass makes a difference in thermal performance.

Our window experts can help you learn about the different types of glazing to choose the one that best meets your lifestyle and needs. We offer laminated glass, sliding window options, traditional windows, and awning windows, among others.

Install Double-glazed Windows and Doors – The Benefits

There are many benefits of double-glazed windows and doors. For example, they can help your home be energy-efficient, block outside noises and so much more.

Double-glazed glass or Insulated Glass Units (IGUs) as commonly known, form part of the thermal protection in our windows offering a better energy performance for your interior living spaces. We can fit various combinations of IGUs into our aluplast frames with many different styles to meet your needs.

What to Look For

Which double-glazed units are right for your home? It’s important to think about your comfort ideals. It’s not just about air temperature; we also have to think about our surroundings. Our customers like that we focus on their needs.

The main goal here is to get the indoor glass surface temperature to be as close to your room’s temperature as possible. That means you don’t experience cold draughts in winter. Plus, the hot summer months don’t bother you as much. Overall, we look at the U-value level (Uw) to measure how well the window system conducts heat.

What’s the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)

Your window assembly includes the frame, glass, seals, and spacers. Plus, it contains a U-value, which is the rate of heat. A lower U-value indicates that the window offers more resistance to heat flow and has better insulation properties. The SHGC measures how fast direct sunlight streams through the window system.

Overall, the SHGC is rated with a number between zero and one. With a lower value, you have less solar heat being transmitted through your windows and doors. The angle where solar radiation hits the glass significantly impacts the amount of heat transfer sent. When the sun sits perpendicular to your glass, it’s got an angle of 0 degrees. Roughly 85 per cent of solar heat gets transmitted with single glazing.

The angle increases when solar radiation is higher because it’s reflected and not sent out as much. When the angle goes over 55 degrees, it quickly falls. The effective area of radiation exposure reduces because of the angle increase.

Under the BCA (Building Code of Australia), window manufacturers must maintain windows and doors to meet the minimum specifications for water seepage resistance and structural adequacy under the Australian Standard 2047. The AFRC (Australian Fenestration Rating Council) has guidelines for a window’s performance and what the energy adequacy provisions dictate.

Overall, you want more solar heat in the winter to reduce heat loss, but you want less in summer to keep warm air out of your home.

Countless Styles for Double-glazing Windows

There are seemingly endless frame and glass styles available, which makes it challenging to choose the best glazing option for your home. Some products focus on keeping heat out or in but vary regarding maintenance, noise reduction, daylight, or security. The window’s price and cost of heating and cooling the home are also related.

The best energy-efficient windows reduce how much your air conditioning system runs by 30 per cent and also lower the peak heating and cooling hours. That means significant savings for you on energy bills each month.

You can use the special tool from the Australian Window Association to calculate how much you might save when using energy-efficient glazing. It compares different selections, including double-glazed windows and door systems. See how much you could lower your greenhouse gas emissions with better thermal performance.
