Commercial Aluminium Windows: What is Double Glazing?

31 Jan 2020

Installing aluminium windows is one effective way to cut your energy costs, keep out the extreme heat and maintain a comfortable temperature inside while reducing our carbon footprint. This is especially the case for commercial buildings which take up more space and require more extensive construction work.

What are double glazed commercial aluminium windows?

They are simply windows that consist of two panes of glass with a single-window frame. The two pieces of glass are separated by a spacer, creating a gap that is filled with air or gas. The spacer is made of metal or polymer strip, usually with a drying agent to drain out any moisture in the space.

Why should you install double glazed windows for your commercial space?

The advantages certainly outweigh the disadvantages when it comes to double glazed aluminium windows. Here are some reasons you may want to consider these windows for your project.

  • Energy efficient

    Double glazing or insulated glazing significantly reduces the amount of heat that enters or exits a space – in turn, producing a cooler space during the summer and a warmer environment in the winter.

    Say goodbye to hefty energy bills and an air conditioner and hello to a comfortable temperature, thanks to double glazed windows! Australia pays the highest power prices in the world. This is because of the extreme weather conditions. If you are looking for a way to offset energy costs, install double glazed aluminium windows for your commercial space. Double glazing windows can also be installed with Low-E glass for even better energy efficiency as well as a reduction in glare.

    Double glazed aluminium windows are becoming more and more popular with the rise in energy prices and increased concern over sustainability. Although double glazed commercial aluminium windows can cost more than regular windows, it does offer a range of benefits – making it a worthwhile investment in the long run.

  • Noise reduction

    Double glazed windows are also great if you want to boost the soundproofing for your commercial space. This is because windows are thicker and more effective in reducing the noise that can enter. This is especially useful for buildings near airports and main cities with lots of traffic. Block out the noise and install aluminium windows for your Sydney project.

    Double glazed windows are also much thicker than regular windows meaning they are tougher to break and are more difficult to be forcefully opened from the outside. This increases the safety level of the building.

  • Prevents mould from forming indoors

    Sydney has very high levels of humidity which can bring upon many issues such as dangerous mould. This can trigger asthma attacks and even infect lungs in serious cases. Double glazing reduces condensation and prevents mould from forming in the first place.
