The benefits of our uPVC double glazed windows include that they require minimal maintenance, have a 10+star energy efficiency rating (We actually supply the only ‘Passive House Certified’ Window and Door that is locally manufactured in Australia – Please ask for more info on this product), provide great noise reduction and multi-locking security features, plus they are non-corrosive and non-flammable.
Double glazing means that two panes of glass are fitted into one frame, with a gap between the panes filled either by air, argon gas or in some less common cases, krypton gas. The double glazed unit, frame material and optimal spacing between the two panes of glass is what makes double glazed windows so thermally efficient. Compared to regular single glazed windows, they can reduce heat loss and heat gain by up to 3-5x. Along with thermal benefits, double glazing reduces noise transmission. If you live near a busy street, double glazing can be the difference between a restless night’s sleep and a peaceful one.
Our windows also provide excellent weather sealing, keeping the cold out in winter and heat out in summer, insulating your home no matter the outside temperature.
At PVC Windows Australia, our extensive range of double glazed window types include:
- Awning windows — These uPVC windows open from the bottom but are hinged at the top to give your home excellent ventilation all year round, regardless of the outside weather. Currently very popular in the Australian Residential Market
- Casement windows — Opening outwards like a door, these double glazed windows are a sophisticated design allowing uPVC windows to be a great window/door solution for Texas Style and Hampton Style Homes and alike (These are styles of homes where casement windows are generally used).
- Sliding windows — Australia’s Favourite Window! Great when you need to save space, sliding windows fit in places that don’t allow for a traditional inward or outward opening window.
- Tilt and Turn windows — Our tilt and turn uPVC double glazed windows are a versatile solution offering both security and airflow. A multi-locking point system allows the window to tilt inward from the top or open outwards with just the turn of a handle. The Germans definitely got it right 40+ years ago!
- Bi-fold windows — Set on a roller and track system, these panels simply fold in on themselves, allowing to completely open up a space. Great for kitchens and lounge areas where you want a wide-open servery window or alfresco space, as well as adding supreme level of elegance to your home.

Double glazed windows are absolutely worth it. Double glazing is now a standard on all new builds, and trying to sell a house with only single-pane windows is often quite difficult. With double glazing on the windows, the value of the property increases significantly. Even if you don’t plan to sell your house, the savings you will make on your heating or cooling bills will quickly pay for the upgrade. On top of that, having double glazed windows means your home will be significantly quieter — creating a more comfortable place to relax.
Double glazed windows trap air or argon gas between two panes of glass. The trapped air or argon gas reduces heat transfer between the inside of the house and the outside. This means that your home will be cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Due to this, double glazing reduces your energy bills because you won’t need to run the air conditioning or use the central heating as often. It also dampens noise transmission, keeping your home quieter.
Yes! Double glazed windows reduce noise both from the inside of your home to the outside by up to 80% — useful if you have noisy neighbours you would prefer not to hear or suffer from the noise pollution of the traffic on the street or from other sources. Studies have shown that double glazing can reduce sound transmission levels by as much as 51 decibels. We offer a range of acoustic glass options, making uPVC double glazed windows one of the most effective ways of keeping your house or office quiet, no matter how loud it is outside.
