Double & Triple Glazed Aluminium Windows
Double & Triple Glazed Aluminium Windows
Aluminium windows are quite popular in the Australian building industry due to their strength, durability, and low maintenance. Aluminium windows come in a variety of profile types with varying thicknesses for use in residential and commercial buildings. SCS particularly supplies aluminium windows in a thermally broken profile, which includes an internal rubber polymer to increase the thermal performance of the window.
Aluminium naturally, as a material, has high thermal conductivity (i.e., high heat gain or loss). By adding a thermal break to the aluminium window, the thermal performance increases dramatically. SCS manufactures high-strength aluminium frames in large sizes and spans. SCS powder coats or anodizes the surface of the aluminium in a wide range of finishes. The properties of aluminium make this product very attractive for architectural design.
Our thermally broken aluminium windows form part of our high-end imported range of double and triple glazed windows. The aluminium profile is also available in the matching door system for the complete package to support all projects.Get a Quote Download Brochure Download Glazing Details Download Finishes Download Drawings
Aluminium windows are a popular choice for both residential and commercial projects due to their strength, durability, and ease of cleaning and maintenance. High-quality double and triple-glazed windows can be quite expensive, but their performance, quality, and longevity are unparalleled.
High-end aluminium windows can be made with large glazed areas and in a variety of shapes, types, finishes and configurations. It is for these reasons that they are commonly used in commercial and retail properties. Nevertheless, they are also extremely well suited for residential properties, providing a modern, sleek appearance.
Standard aluminium windows usually have poor thermal performance due to the high thermal conductance of aluminium as a material. It is for this reason that European manufacturers have advanced their manufacturing and profile extrusions in order to improve the thermal and acoustic performance by implementing multi-air chamber systems and thermally broken framing systems.
Thermally broken aluminium windows utilise a rubber polymer within the aluminium extrusion profile to create a barrier between the inside and the outside of the window frame. This barrier prevents the conductive thermal energy loss through the frame. Thermally broken aluminium window systems, coupled with high quality double and triple glazing, close the performance gap between aluminium windows and other high-performing materials such as uPVC and timber.
SCS range of thermally broken aluminium windows comes in 3 major frame thicknesses, each providing variations of thermal performance, structural integrity and stability. As the frame thickness increases, the depth of the double or triple glazing also increases, leading to higher thermal performance. Our most popular section is the 65 mm profile, which provides a cost-effective and high thermal performance. However, our new Steel Look 95 mm profile is becoming increasingly popular with clients and architects due to its modern, stylish and slimline design.
SCS supplies aluminium windows in various finishes and surfaces. Typically, aluminium windows are powder coated or anodised to suit. Any RAL colour can be powder coated to any level of gloss as required. The RAL colour chart can be accessed via the link below.
In addition to the standard powder coat finish, SCS can also offer a range of timber veneers and textured surfaces to suit all project requirements. Please contact SCS to find out more about our aluminium surface finishes and colours.
The type of glazing selected for a window can influence the daylight transmission, thermal properties, sound insulation, safety, privacy, and security of the whole window unit. It is essential that the glazing type is specified carefully for each project to ensure the end product provides a healthy, comfortable, temperature stable and quiet environment.
To achieve this balance, modern glazing technology has advanced to provide a wide variety of glass types and coatings. Double and triple glazed windows can use these glass types in combination in order to achieve the desired outcome. Double glazing combines two layers of glass with an insulated spacer in order to increase the thermal insulation of a window. Triple glazing combines three layers of glass with two insulated spacers in order to achieve greater thermal insulation.
SCS supplies double and triple glazed windows in a wide variety of shapes and configurations. The shape of the window and the opening type can influence the thermal and acoustic insulation, security, safety and structural strength of the window.
The most common type of window used throughout Europe and supplied by SCS. In one position, the window tilts inwards at the top for permanent ventilation. The second position swings inwards (similar to a door) for flush ventilation and cleaning. This window type uses a multi-point locking system to apply high compression on the double seals to reduce air penetration. These windows can also be made with a double opening (French style) to increase the clear opening and ventilation.
- Extremely high thermal and acoustic performance
- Minimal air leakage/drafts
- Increased security
- Secure in tilt function (steel bar) for constant ventilation
- Easy to clean, especially for upper storey windows
- Must be installed and adjusted by an experienced installer
- Interior blind solutions must be carefully designed to integrate well with this solution
The installation of high-quality and well-finished handles will greatly influence the final design and appearance of the window. Selecting a complementary handle type and colour will impact the overall style of the room. SCS supplies a range of high-quality window handles for our European windows in a variety of styles. Our handles are available in both key-lockable and non-key-lockable to suit all design, safety, and security requirements.
Flyscreens are an important component of all residential and commercial properties. They are mainly used as a barrier against insects, but with changing technology they can fulfill many other purposes besides preventing the intrusion of insects. Different material types and configurations can be used for insect prevention (standard flywire), bush fire protection (metal mesh) and security (steel mesh and diamond grill screens).
For all our window projects, SCS can supply the matching flyscreen or supply you with a suitable flyscreen contractor, to ensure the appropriate screens are supplied for your project.
Windows supplied by SCS can come with special features and profile additions in order to suit the required style.
Glazing bars and colonial bars are an important decorative window feature in many architectural designs. SCS supplies a range of products with glazing bars, colonial bars and glazing separators to suit your needs, whether you are creating a Hampton style home, preserving the character of a Federation style home, matching heritage overlay or enhancing an architectural element.
