Glazing Matters

Normal single glass is a poor thermal insulator and offers little resistance to the passage of heat.     

Paarhammer double glazed windows and doors have glass which consists of 2 panes (any glass combination can be used) with a sealed space 16mm in between. This space is usually filled with argon gas to provide better insulation properties. Our triple glazed products have 3 panes of glass (any glass combination can be used) with sealed spaces twice 12mm. U-values from a low 0.8 (WERS - Window Energy Rating Scheme). 

Glazing options

Paarhammer windows and doors can incorporate a broad range of glazing options with the widest airgaps to achieve the highest thermal, and acoustic barriers through:

  • Double or triple glazing;
  • Toughened, laminated and tinted;
  • Low-E and the new soft coat low-E;
  • Sealed in-glass slim line venetians;
  • I-Glass for instant privacy;
  • Bushfire safe glass for safer living in BAL-40 and even BAL-FZ zones

    All glass is made in Australia except BAL-FZ glass (origin: Germany)

New privacy features

Paarhammer privacy features have become an attractive option for many applications. We combine our double glazing with switchable I-Glass to achieve privacy or clear view at the flick of a switch, often used in entrance combinations or bathrooms.
