Double glazing benefits
Keep your home comfortable throughout the year
At ARCO Double Glazing we believe that every Australian home deserves the best comfort all year round.
Double glazing helps to regulate your home’s interior temperature with the combination of our frames and glass units acting like insulation so you’ll be warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Double glazed units are made from two panes of glass that are separated by a layer of air or argon gas and are sealed. This gap between the panes will increase performance to dramatically reduce temperature transfer. As a result, your home is kept at a pleasant temperature throughout the year.
Lower energy bills
Heating and cooling make up around 40% of household energy use. This means that when you are using the heater or air conditioner, money is flying out your door. Our uPVC frames have a 5 chamber design and an air-tight seal to provide exceptional insulation.
Low-E (low emissivity) glass comes as standard with all of our windows and doors and works in winter to absorb the heat and to reflect the heat in summer. As well as reducing UV rays by around 75%.
The uPVC frames together with the double glazed glass unit can reduce the need for heating and cooling by up to 80% which means that you can save thousands on electricity.
Noise reduction up to 70%
Double glazing can reduce unwanted outside noise by making your home up to 8 times quieter. The sound has to travel through two panes of glass, dramatically reducing noise from the outside. Our uPVC frames contain rubber seals which give an airtight seal to keep the outside noise out.
Building a new home or renovating one is an ideal time to consider installing double glazing to significantly reduce unwanted noise forever.
We have various glass types available to help you reach your desired level of quiet
Say goodbye to condensation
Condensation commonly occurs when the outside air is cool and inside of your house is warm. The moisture in the air condenses on the glass, forming what can be a significant amount of water.
Our double glazed units are sealed around the outside with butyl which means that they are protected from any moisture trying to get in. They also contain desiccant in the spacer bar which absorbs any moisture present at production.
Keep out intruders
Burglaries often happen by opportunists who gain quick access to your home due to old, single glazed, aluminium frames and weak locking mechanisms. With double glazing, the two panes of glass mean that double glazed windows are very strong and much harder to break than traditional widows. Our multi-point locking systems and frames, reinforced with galvanized steel adds another layer of protection.
Depending on the level of security you require we can offer various Grade 'A' safety glass such as laminate and toughened glass as well as security screens.
