Some framing and glazing systems involving aluminium, for instance, are not particularly good at preventing energy transfer through a window. In other words, an inefficient frame can undo many of the benefits derived from an efficient IGU.
The solution, of course, is to use a full glazing system that has no ‘weak links’. That is why we at AIG are among the first glass processing professionals in Australia to use uPVC on all our windows and doors. Not only is uPVC exceptionally resilient and stable, but it is also a poor energy conductor – which makes it ideal for preventing unwanted thermal energy transfer from a building to the outside world.
Additional advantages of uPVC glazing include cost-effectiveness, great noise attenuation, minimal maintenance requirements, outstanding weather resistance and full compliance with all relevant Australian standards.
