Acoustic Problems Solved
The location and orientation of a building can greatly influence the need for improved acoustic characteristics of the windows and glazing systems.
Property located near flight paths, inner city locations near trains, expressways, noisy schools or businesses and major road traffic are all examples of acoustic problems.
If noise reduction is your primary concern, an air gap of at least 80mm is optimal and this is very expensive with a typical IGU double-glazed window. If your windows are set deep in the wall, our system can be the perfect way to dramatically improve acoustic insualtion.
Great Thermal Insulation
The high thermal insulation properties contribute to a pleasant peaceful home with an even temperature. Turn off your fans and air-conditioning in Summer and your heaters in Winter.
Preserve your Existing Windows
It’s usually not until you’ve lived in a space that the need for double or secondary glazing becomes apparent. The choice then becomes whether to replace the entire window and frame or find something attractive, functional and affordable to supplement what you have. The EuroGlazing solution is just that and beyond all the technical advantages, it means your home will look the same from the outside, which is often a prime consideration.
Architecturally Designed in Europe
For over 20 years, our parent company has been designing and manufacturing these quality fittings and glazing systems in The Netherlands.
Better for the Environment
Keeping your existing timber windows, you not only save on your own heating and cooling costs, which reduces waste and your carbon footprint on the planet, but you also save the resources and energy cost required to manufacture new windows. “Where an old wood window is restored and equipped with a good storm window, it has been repeatedly shown in field studies to perform at least as well as a typical thermal replacement window — and at a much lower cost.”

High Performance Glass Profiles
In Australia we can source some of the most technically efficient and condition-specific glass in the world. We work with major suppliers such as CSR who produce the innovative Viridian ComfortPlus™ and Viridian SmartGlass™. See http://www.smartglass.com.au/more/.
These high performance glasses are available at EuroGlazing and constitute our premium range. If you are looking for long term cost savings, Low-e glass (low-e = low emissivity) is more cost effective than standard glass.
Glass windows of 8mm thickness are much better insulators than both thinner glass and acrylic / PVC. Glass is also much stronger and scratch resistant and does not discolour or go cloudy with age. There are no aluminium or uPVC frames to warp, shrink, corrode or need painting.
The installed seal made out of a specialist 3M tape with low thermal conductivity, creates the air-tight seal when both the inner and outer windows are closed. This provides insulation, saves energy, thus saving you money and also contributes to a low carbon environment.
Healthier for Asthmatics and Allergy sufferers
EuroGlazing helps in four ways
1) Sealing windows from traffic grime & pollen entering through windows.
2) Eliminating the need for dust laden heavy curtains to keep heat in.
3) Reducing condensation on glass which leads to damp and mould allergens.
4) Keeping the temperature inside more even and thereby eliminating the 3am temperature drop which often triggers asthma coughing.
Bright and Clutter-free
We like our homes to be full of light and clear of clutter, so frameless glass secondary glazing is often a much more attractive option than curtains. With EuroGlazing, you can have the benefits of insulation without the need for cumbersome curtains.
The combination of material strength and high quality fittings with the Spanjolet locking system guarantees high security standards.
Opens With Ease
If you’ve considered magnetic secondary glazing, have you ever wondered where to put those “removable windows” when you want some fresh air? Our windows are hinged to your existing window frames so they open inwards, they can be securely latched with our GRONA® Spanjolet lock which can be opened easily and locked tightly.
