Glazing Matters

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

Paarhammer double glazed windows and doors have glass which consists of 2 panes (various glass combination can be used) with a sealed space 14-20mm in between. This space is usually filled with argon gas to provide even better insulation properties. Our triple glazed products have 3 panes of glass (various glass combination can be used) with sealed spaces of twice 12-16mm, argon gas filled. Whole window U-values start from a very 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 (Viridian Lightbridge)
  • Soundproof glazing
  • High visibility - high shading
  • I-Glass for instant privacy
  • Bird strike glass
  • Bushfire safe glass for safer living in BAL-40 and even BAL-FZ zones
  • All glass used by Paarhammer is made in Australia except BAL-FZ glass and Bird Strike 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. Read more

    New bird safe glass

    Light transparency and bird protection can go hand-in-hand and are another step to design and build homes and commercial projects which are in harmony with nature. A special UV reflective coating is applied to parts of the glass in a Mikado pattern. Birds can see this pattern which for humans is almost invisible. Paarhammer now has access to this exciting glass which can be incorporated into double or triple glazed units. Read more
