Double & Triple Glazed uPVC Windows
Double & Triple Glazed uPVC Windows
Steel reinforced uPVC windows provide fantastic properties at great value. Windows made from uPVC provide excellent acoustic and thermal properties and are easy to clean and maintain. uPVC windows are popular in Europe due to these properties and are becoming a much bigger part of the Australian medium to high end residential market. Modern uPVC windows are available in many colours, frame types, sizes and configurations.Get a Quote Download Brochure Download Glazing Details Download Finishes Download Drawings
Steel reinforced uPVC windows provide fantastic properties at great value. The uPVC frames consist of several air chambers that minimise heat transfer, resulting in outstanding thermal properties. The enclosed air chambers also absorb vibrations and soundwaves of various frequencies, providing excellent noise insulation. The uPVC frame in combination with the correct type of double or triple glazing, can achieve the best results for sound-proofing and protection against heat gain and heat loss.
Our European imported range of uPVC windows combines the latest technology with high quality materials and sophisticated engineering. The manufacturing facilities implement the most advanced processes for manufacturing and a strict quality control to ensure that the best product is produced.
SCS offers uPVC window profiles in 3 different thicknesses. The quality and stability of all profiles is to the highest standard, however in general increasing the thickness of the frame and glazing will result in increased thermal and acoustic performance.
Our most common and popular profile is the 76 mm uPVC profile, as it is both cost effective and provides excellent thermal and acoustic performance.
SCS only uses the best and most reputable materials for its products. Our uPVC profiles are supplied by Koemmerling, the leading profile manufacturer in Germany and internationally. This allows us to bring the latest designs and technology to the Australian market.
In the past there was some concern with uPVC surface damage and discoloration of the profiles due to extended UV exposure. SCS takes great care in only supplying tested and reputable German uPVC windows that have been tested and approved for use in the Australian climate.
The base option for uPVC is a standard white finish. The standard colours available for uPVC windows is limited to the approved range provided to us by our supplier. We have a certain number of standard laminate foils, in different colours and a woodgrain type finish, which we
can supply in combinations to suit your project such as:
- Laminate foil inside/outside
- Laminate foil outside/white inside
Our standard range of laminate foil colours can be accessed via the Downloads tab.
SCS also offers a unique method of finishing uPVC windows, which is not offered by most Australian manufacturers, due to limited experience and expertise.
Our uPVC windows can be spray paint finished in factory
to any RAL colour of your choice. Similar to the laminate finish, we can complete spray paint finishes in the below combinations:
- Spray paint RAL inside/outside
- Spray paint outside/white inside
The full RAL colour chart can be accessed via the below link
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 3 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 opening type can influence the thermal and acoustic insulation, security, safety and structural strength of the window.
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 in 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, however with changing technology they can fulfill many other purposes besides preventing the intrusion of insects. Different materials 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 to 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.
