Double & Triple Glazed Windows
Double and triple glazed windows are key elements in modern construction. They have come a long way: From formerly simplest fixed single-glazed panes in wall cut outs to nowadays double and triple glazed windows for a variety of architectural, design and construction applications.
From energy waster compromising security to highly sophisticated, energy efficient and secure elements of modern design. Nowadays, the minimum reasonable standard is double glazing for reasons of energy savings (cost savings), security as well as demand for higher durability and quality.
Sustainable Construction Services will provide you with the perfect solution for each application. Our product range consists of double and triple glazed aluminium windows, timber windows, uPVC windows (steel enforced) as well as the material combinations: uPVC + aluminium windows and timber + aluminium windows.
Our windows are supplied in a variety of types and shapes, each providing numerous options and accessories as shown in more detail below.
Steel enforced uPVC windows provide fantastic properties at great value.

Timber is the oldest window material. A timber window will give your home or office a natural, comfortable feel, instil style and class into your environment.

Aluminium is the strongest and most durable material, easy to clean and maintain. Quality aluminium windows are therefore the most expensive choice in the window market. High-End aluminium windows are often used for commercial properties and retail facilities. Nevertheless, they are also extremely well suited for residential properties. Aluminium windows can be built in large sizes and are available in every colour (pantone or RAL). High quality aluminium window frames provide good properties; their acoustic and thermal properties however are not quite comparable to PVC and timber window framing. It is extremely important to ensure aluminium profiles are thermally broken (a polymer strip is inserted to prevent heat transfer). read more: Aluminium Windows, double and triple glazed
PVC + Aluminium windows combine the best properties of both materials in one solution. A profile of high quality aluminium is attached to a steel enforced uPVC-Frame. This is the perfect solution for all building projects where you want to benefit from the noble visual appeal and stability of the aluminium profile and the superior thermal insulation of uPVC. With its outstanding static properties, it is ideal for large glazed areas. Aluminium and uPVC have been uniquely bound together, which is extremely economical: for manufacture, maintenance and energy consumption.
Extremely stable: This special bonding technology means that the aluminium adopts not only a visual, but also a static function. This results to perfect stability and window sizes far exceeding those of conventional windows.
Elegant and stylish: Offset and semi offset design, aluminium look, and unlimited colour schemes. This provides the potential you need for the creative design of your window facades.
Economical: Two powerful materials combined, and each provides its best –aluminium its stability, uPVC its energy efficiency and acoustic insulation; read more: uPVC + Aluminium windows
Timber + Aluminium combination windows simply improve durability and resistance to climate. This reduces the necessity of maintenance and care, still providing the classy as well as high end look of timber. An aluminium profile is mounted onto the exterior surface of window frame and sash. The timber is therefore protected from weather and UV-impact and will stay permanently in shape, without necessity to re-paint and nourish the surface. Timber-aluminium windows are available in different timbers and any colour (pantone or RAL). The windows can be build in large sizes and all thinkable shapes and options; read more: Timber + Aluminium window

It also depends on the manufacturer, which quality and type is available. Our German suppliers provide the best solutions and highest quality, however also some local manufacturers can supply good solutions for various window types.
Glazing is the key to achieve the desired property of your windows. Thermal insulation (temperature protection), acoustic insulation (noise reduction, soundproofing), security and safety or even sun protection and privacy are factors to be taken into consideration, when deciding for the correct window.
