not fit any double glazed products to already existing frames of windows/doors as this
is not a proper fix if you are after better energy efficiency levels, it only fixes part of the issues.
We do FULL window replacement and door replacement, and specialize in uPVC double glazing.
Our products will fully
enhance your house in all aspects of - energy efficiency, security, sound
proofing and style.

is almost a maintenance free product designed with a life span
larger than forty years. If needed it can be fully recycled saving our
trees and protecting the environment as well as reducing the
contributions of harmful emissions polluting our environment. uPVC is
naturally flame retardant and does not support combustion so is well
suited to the Australian conditions.
1. Energy Efficiency - Save on your heating and cooling costs:
all know that insulating your walls and roof space
keeps you warm in winter and cooler in summer right? Well putting single
glazing in a well-insulated home is like having a hole in your wall, all
heating and cooling is just going out the window and frames! Given the
extreme heat of our local Summer and the cooler months of winter having
uPVC Double glazed windows and doors installed will save you on your
energy bills as well as the environment.
2. Security - Increase security of your home:
Most standard single glazed aluminium windows and doors can just be lifted out, unless you fit after-market locks that you are always trying to find the keys too when you want to open them or get out. All our windows and doors have either multi-locking systems or other built in security devices.
3. Sound Insulation - Lower the amount of noise both coming in and going out:
Do you live on a main street, or have constant traffic noise?
Is the Neighbours dog keeping you up all night? Or can your neighbours hear your children
yelling etc? Single glazing is not going to help at all! uPVC double glazed
units are so good, when we are installing them they have to opened up so that we can hear what the other carpenter is saying on the other side. It can in some instances reduce the noise transmission by over 50%
4. Maintenance free:
Being uPVC frames, there is no rotting, warping or fading of materials due to the weather conditions, no painting required ever. All that your uPVC windows need when they have dust or pollen on them is a bucket of warm soapy water and wipe them over.
5. Style and Value:
At ACT Double Glazed we supply and install only the best products allowing you to instantly add value and style to your home. Our windows and doors will give your home a lovely modern, clean line look and will save you on your energy bills .
BUT BEST OF ALL HAVE YOUR SAVINGS ON YOUR ENERGY BILLS PAY BACK YOUR INVESTMENT WITHIN YEARS!
U-value is the measure of the heat gain or loss through your windows. Essentially it is a measure of your home’s energy efficiency. The higher the U-value is the worse the thermal performance of the unit will be, in return costing you more on your energy bills. The less the U-value is the better the insulation you will have which means the window has a greater resistance to the heat gain or loss, therefore saving you money on your heating and cooling.
