Our homes and commercial buildings require builders and designers with the best motive in mind – to construct comfortable and ergonomic living spaces. At Kitek WIndows, we promote such ideas through providing double glazing technology to our customers, delivering the technology benefits which cannot be compared to single glazing.
In Australia harsh weather conditions prevail, we cannot disregard the noise and pollution from the environment that pose a danger and disruption to our health and private lives. Double glazed windows and doors help to keep these unfavorable elements away; allowing you to be warm when it’s cold and vice versa, and also eliminating external noise.
Double glazed panels let through light just like single-glazed windows, regulating heat as an added bonus. In the end, you will prevent up to 70% heat loss when it is icy and retain the most heat inside the premises.
Here is a checklist of our priorities:
High-quality customer service
Meeting and exceeding your expectations – ‘Customer is always right’ applies
Quick turnaround time with high flexibility
Affordable and competitive prices
Top of the range door and window options available
Your premises look great after everything has been done
Why are double glazed windows the best choice?
If you are not convinced about the benefits of double glazing, ask yourself the following questions:
Are you living on a busy street?
Are your power bills skyrocketing?
Does your house need more ventilation and security?
If you answered yes to some of these, then double glazing could be a solution to your problems. What is double glazing? It consists of two glass panels mounted in the same frame with an aluminum spacer between them. The space can be air-filled or have some particular dense gases such as argon. They are designed to be compact, durable and 100% waterproof.
Noise pollution can be reduced by installing double glazed windows. Traffic and noisy neighbours will no longer be a worry, as thick, laminated layers of glass panels will create a strong sound barrier for you.
Are you familiar with Low-E double glazing? This specification helps to protect you from harmful UV rays. Double glazed windows also have an added advantage of keeping heat inside when it’s chilly and heat outside when the summer sun is shining. The indoor temperature is more consistent, and you can save more on your electricity bills since you will heat or cool your home less often.
The benefits of double glazing outweigh the costs of installation. These include: low maintenance, resistance to impact, and lasting protection against termites and rotting.
New technology provides fixtures that are:
Resistant against corrosion
Easily to adjust
Simple to replace
Role of Glass in double glazing
The glazing of a building forms an important and integral part of it’s design. It contributes to the appearance of a building, as well as the thermal performance and the overall comfort for its inhabitants.
UV protection, thermal performance, colour, transparency and reflectivity are aspects that you need to consider when ordering windows. It is always wise to determine what is at stake during the design phase when you choose your preferred glazing products. Glass options include:
Single glazing (Budget choice): Light-weight, but not energy efficient.
Double glazing (Energy efficient option): Two glass layers with space in between which reduces heat loss and noise.
Triple glazing (Premium option): These have three layers. Heat loss and noise reduction are significantly greater than double glazing options.
Benefits associated with this technology include:
High energy saving
A wide variety of options
Long term durability

The material: Your door and window frames should be corrosive resistant and fade free. Associated accessories include door and window handles with locks for security purposes.
U-value (frame and glass units): following AWA specifications, U-value represents the measure of heat loss rate which identifies how good your windows and frames are at regulating temperature levels in the house. Lower U-value signifies better thermal performance. Low-e glass provides sufficient thermal insulation which means lower U-values.
