Noise Reduction

Unwanted noise can spoil the comfort of your home. If you'd like to reduce traffic or voice noise, thicker laminated glass can be an excellent solution. Be aware that, while there is a range of glass solutions for different noise problems, windows are not the only way noise can enter the home. Download brochure on Noise Control here.

Energy Efficiency/Thermal Glazing

Double glazing comprises of two panes of glass separated by a sealed air space. The air space acts as an insulator keeping the internal house temperature relatively constant. This keeps the cost of air conditioners and heating down. Double glazing also reduces condensation. Download brochure on Climate Control here. Brochure courtesy of National Glass.

Let us advise you on this important matter to ensure your safety and compliance with applicable building codes. Toughened and laminated glass are both "A" grade safety glass and offer high levels of protection against injury.

Security Glazing

You can make your home more secure without detracting from its appearance. Laminated glass consists of two or more sheets glued together with a flexible interlayer. If laminated glass is broken, the pieces remain adhered to the interlayer. This characteristic also makes it an "A" Grade safety glass.
