Double glazing for Adelaide.

Double Glazing: Adelaide Specialists

Double Glazing and Adelaide go together. Let’s look at how double glazing can make your Adelaide home better, and more comfortable, in many ways.


Double Glazing keeps your Adelaide home warmer in Winter

In winter, Adelaide can get cold. On occasions, it’s even been below freezing. While it’s not often that cold, we have to have our heaters on for months of winter to keep our homes warm. That costs us real money. More heat is lost through poor windows than any other place, and double glazed windows can save a lot of money. Oh, and by the way, they can help keep you cooler in summer, too.


Adelaide can be noisy. Double glazing provides sound insulation

Whether it’s traffic noise, noisy neighbours, barking dogs, aircraft noise, local entertainment or any of a host of other sources of noise nuisance, double glazing can dramatically reduce noise pollution. The twin panes of glass, and the gas-filled gap between them, can really reduce outside noise, and provide the peace and quiet your family will treasure.


When it’s cold outside, and warm inside, Condensation can result.

Old, inefficient single-pane windows get cold on the inside during winter. If the air inside is warm and moist, condensation can be a problem. That can lead to damage to walls, floors, curtains etc., and cause mould and mildew. Double glazing reduces and helps prevent condensation.


Double glazing saves Adelaide homes real money on energy bills, and reduces our carbon footprint

How good is that? We can reduce our carbon emissions to fight global warming, AND save money at the same time.


Genuine Double Glazing vs Secondary Glazing

Secondary glazing is the addition of a second pane to an already-existing window. This is usually only done on the inside of a window, and is often attached by magnets. This process leaves in place what is usually a very thin outer pane, which is likely to be deficient for both thermal and acoustic insulation. The gap between the two panes is filled with air, which is a good conductor of heat. The secondary glazing process relies on the existing frames being low maintenance, good insulators, and well sealed against air infiltration.

Genuine double glazing is defined by the gap between the two glass panes.To improve performance, the gap will either be a vacuum, or be filled with a noble gas. High-performance real double glazing is usually filled with argon gas.

Retrofit double glazing can fit genuine double glazing units (IGU’s) to your existing window frames, saving you a lot of money.
