Vertical Sliding Windows

The panels can be slid to any position as required and held in position by the spring balances in the side of the outer frame.
Horizontal Sliding Windows
Retrofit Double Glazing for Horizontal Sliding Windows
Horizontal Slide units are our most popular style of retrofit double glazing services in Melbourne.
Horizontal sliders are opened via a handle running the full length of the panel and slide left or right as required. They make it easy to access your windows when you need them, while providing efficient, cost-effective sound and temperature insulation.
Hinged Unit / Panel
Hinged units can be fitted to almost any shape of window.
They provide effective thermal insulation and sound reduction simply and inexpensively.
Hinged Units are retained closed by an ingenious semi-automatic catch, unsurpassed for effective simplicity.
Lift out windows are often installed when a secondary glaze window is required on an existing window that is rarely opened. This lift out is designed features a handle at the bottom for easy access and removal of the panel.
Fixed Secondary windows cannot be opened; the function of fixed glazing is to allowing light to enter while reducing sound, maintaining temperature and reducing drafts. These tailor made windows can be manufactured to any shape desired and they provide effective thermal insulation and sound reduction – simply and inexpensively.
