What Is Double Glazing?
Sealed unit double-glazing refers to 2 sheets of glass separated by a spacer bar. The space is filled with desiccant (a substance that absorbs water) and completely sealed around the perimeter. The still air inside the sealed unit creates the insulation break while the desiccant prevents fogging from occurring inside the unit.
Why Double Glazing? Will it be worth the investment?
Double-glazing is a worthwhile investment to any home; you can reduce your energy bills as well as reduce outside noise entering your home.
CSIRO tests show that Next Generation Glass double glazed windows and doors have sound-absorbing capability to cut outside loudness by greater than 75%.
It is estimated that a building fitted with Next Generation Glass double glazed windows and doors will use 50-80% less energy to achieve the same cool house in summer and cosy home in winter than compared with low quality single paned doors and windows. Lower energy use equates to reduced energy bills for the building owner.
Live smarter and allow Next Generation Glass double glazed doors and windows to do more than half the work for you, for no ongoing cost. So is double-glazing worth the investment? Definitely!
Are double glazed windows available in any style?
There are very few limitations when using double glazed windows, in most cases Next Generation Glass can create the same style as aluminium or timber systems. Next Generation Glass also has its own innovative designs, which are constantly being updated. The popular styles of casement, awning, tilt and turn, fixed and sliders are all available using our European-style systems.
What type of glass is Energy efficient?
Energy efficient windows and doors are sealed double glazed units of glass with frames that ensure airtight closure due to superior gaskets, hardware and craftsmanship. Combined with a low conductive frame (e.g. uPVC) you will ensure high comfort levels with reduced heat loss in winter and less heat gain in summer.
We had Steve and Jack out to install our glass kitchen splashback and we're thrilled with the transformation! Steve was great to work with and had very helpful advice about how to achieve a solution for our space. We'd recommend Next Generation Glass to our friends and family and we'll use them again if we have the need. Thanks guys. Love your work.Simon and Tamika, Coolbellup
Steve Payne has worked for me for many years installing quality uPVC and aluminium double and single glazed windows to various renovations. At Next Generation Glass they give a quality service on time and within budget. Both Steve and John are able to give sound, friendly advice to my clients which has been very helpful, I would highly recommend the services of Next Generation Glass.Scott | Renovation Projects
I cannot thank you enough for the excellent work you did at Concept Marketing. Everything was professionally done; from turning up on time for the initial measure through to the no-fuss installation. The finished product looks visually stunning and the client agrees. As far as I am concerned, you guys are a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stereotyped industry. It’s good to see there are still professionals out there that deliver what is promised. I have and will continue to recommend you to other clients. Just make sure I get first preference when a job comes by. Keep up the great work.Rodney Deville | Starwest Commercial
Anroc Constructions would like to thank Next Generation Glass for all your effort completing the below jobs: Aussie Living Homes head office in Osborne Park. Smart Homes head office Osborne Park. We were all put under a lot of time and costing pressure to complete these two jobs. The project co-ordination and workmanship was excellent. Next Generation Glass experience in solving problems and completing the job was very professional. Anroc would be happy to recommend Next Generation Glass to any company.Marek Kovac | Anroc Constructions
Recently we needed to expand our office space to accommodate for our rapidly growing team. After drawing up some initial designs we engaged with the team from Next Generation Glass to provide advice and install our internal glass walls. We found their expertise and advice were a major contributor to our project and helped us achieve a very modern and professional looking office. We cannot recommend them enough to anyone wanting an office fit-out that stands out and has that “wow factor”. We will be engaging their services again with our upcoming stage 3 expansion.Chris | Logic Networks
We decided to take the supply and installation of our windows/doors out of our contract with our builder, not being happy with the quality of product specified by the designer. We were introduced to Next Generation Glass through a friend and from our initial meeting we were impressed with their level of product knowledge and professional service. The service included determining the thermal rating, help with choosing frames and appropriate glass for our east/west orientated house, and coordination with the builder during construction. The slightly extra cost was insignificant compared to the superior quality of the finished product. We have had many comments from the designer, builder and tradesmen on the quality of the work. We highly recommend Next Generation Glass.Danny & Rita Bellotti
We wish to thank you for the excellent job in converting the windows and doors in our home to double-glazed panels. Next Generation Glass provided a quality job and my husband and I were delighted with your total professionalism and honesty from our first meeting. We found you reliable and extremely hard working. You have enhanced the comfort in our home and we definitely feel a lot more secure. Another bonus is the reduction in energy costs for both heating and cooling. Noise disturbance has reduced significantly too. We would be happy to recommend Next Generation Glass to anyone.John & Joan, Jandakot
I would like to demonstrate my appreciation for the quality workmanship, attention to detail, professionalism and service provided by Next Generation Glass on the installation of double-glazed windows and doors in our home. They certainly look good and have lived up to their promise of reducing noise as we live near a busy road in Leeming. The double doors are amazing and are an impressive feature that everyone has commented on arriving to our home. Of note, the door frame is superbly fitted. Thank you once again to John and Steve who did a fantastic job.Rhyon Johnson, Leeming
Next Generation Glass were very efficient on time and well priced. John re-glazed much of our large house and we could not be happier. In fact we have got John back to do further work and recommended him to my daughter Natalie, an Architect. Now she has had John do some of the work on her new home. John has a great work ethic and is very easy to deal with. Highly recommended!Terry Edwards
Thank you Steve, John & Dean for the successful installation of our double-glazed windows. From the prompt response to my request for a quote through to the ‘on-time’ installation the service has been great. We immediately noticed a reduction in outside noise and we feel very snug. Our only regret is not getting the windows replaced sooner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Next Generation Glass to any future client.Denise Salkeld
Thanks to Next Generation Glass for installing double-glazing throughout our home with a fast, friendly service and no fuss or mess. After having roller shutters over a period of 23 years, I wished I had installed double-glazing much earlier. Outside noise level is nonexistent; we used to have to put up with power tools and generators almost daily. Heat levels have reduced considerably too. On a 44 degree Celsius day I turned the air-con on at 10am and off again at 1pm. The house stayed cool for 6 hours before needing AC again! The windows and doors have opened up my home, they are attractive and fresh. Your team's attention to detail and finish is by far the best I have come across with any trades.Paul and Valerie Osborne
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great job you have done with my new windows. They look fantastic. Steve, your professionalism and care in helping me make my choices was outstanding. I will certainly be recommending Next Generation Glass to others. Thanks again.Brenda Hogg | Commercial Law Solutions
I used Next Generation Glass & Double Glazing to remove my old sliding door at home. They replaced the door with a new commercial sliding door. My experience using Next Generation Glass has been a good one. Firstly, their service was great! They came out quickly and measured up my job and gave me a quote within days. They use top quality products, which means if I had used them the first time around I wouldn’t have had to pay to have the old one replaced! From my experience, I’m happy to recommend Next Generation Glass & Double Glazing. They're a local company that deliver good products with great service and on time.Sam, Atwell
