As the name implies, double glazing is basically a window or door that has two panes of glass installed in its frame rather than just one. However, its energy efficiency doesn’t stem from the extra thickness, but from the gap between the panes of glass. The empty space between the panes is what provides insulation from heat and cold.
The importance of insulating glass cannot be over-estimated. According to numerous independent studies, windows are responsible for more heat loss or gain in a building than any other part of the building.
Regardless of the climate, windows and doors from CWD will create a comfortable atmosphere in your home. Problems with draught and condensation that are so common during Tasmanian winters are eliminated. More than 40% of household energy can be lost through single glazed conventional windows. The energy ratings of our windows and doors can be enhanced by varying the type and thickness of glass and sound proof windows for Tasmanian conditions also cut down on external noise nearly eight times better than traditional windows.
