Our goal is to deliver the best advice and product to ensure customer satisfaction. Paarhammer has an unwavering commitment to the environment
and sustainability, and sees it as their main mission to increase energy efficiency in housing, and comfort for occupants, through custom made
double and triple glazed windows and doors, made from sustainable resources, in a facility with sustainable features, delivered on-time and
to the highest quality.
This has been our goal, mission and passion since the formation of the company in 1990. As a Paarhammer customer you can expect a personal touch
from the owners. Tony's unique skills and experience has led to many creative solutions on complex projects. And, with Edith's expertise in
design and office administration, and a team of dedicated staff, you can be assured of a level of competence that's well beyond the service
typically provided in the windows industry.

Since 1990, the focus of our operations has been on maximising work flow efficiencies and the right environment for our staff. From small beginnings, Paarhammer moved to a new purpose-built 4500m2 facility in 2010. Powered by the sun, the Paarhammer factory features an almost 100 kW photo-voltaic solar system to provide electricity, and a state of the art timber recycling system that produces hot water and heating during the cold winter months.
A showroom with a large range of products is awaiting visitors and a spacious training area for trade customers and staff is also in place. We are happy to show prospective clients through our manufacturing facilities (by appointment) so you can see how your future windows and doors are created. See a short 'Client Experience' video.
Paarhammer supplies windows and doors Australia-wide from the manufacturing facility in Ballan, Victoria. You are welcome to see why we chose
Ballan as our manufacturing base.

We are deeply committed to a sustainable future
Our commitment to good environmental outcomes goes beyond our products:
Our manufacturing facility is just one example of how we aim to keep as low a carbon footprint as possible. Paarhammer is powered by the sun with almost 100 kW of the electricity used to manufacture windows and doors created through solar panels. While a high level of self-consumption is aimed for, there are also backup batteries and a gateway.
The manufacturing plant also features Light Management, Water Management and Waste Management where even our wood shavings are being recycled into wood briquettes that are used to provide hot water and heat our factory during the winter month, with the rest offered to the public. This reduces landfill by about 2000m3 per year, almost an Olympic sized swimming pool. Read more
In 2008 we became Victoria's first FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) approved window manufacturer (Trademark Licence Code: FSC-C015342). You can order your windows and doors with FSC® Chain of Custody certification (SCS-COC-001887) or made in plantation timbers. Read more
Most Paarhammer products are offered stained or spray painted. We use Adler paints which are especially formulated for longevity on windows and doors. These paints are water based and contain low to very low VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). Also the Cutek oil used for bushfire products is low VOC. The use of low VOC finishes, rather than finishes with higher VOC levels, translates to a reduction in the emissions in your home and a better indoor environment for health and wellbeing. Read more
