Windows and Doors

Let the outside in

When buying, renovating or having a home built, it is important to take windows and doors into consideration as they provide light and fresh air, and offer views that connect our interior living spaces with the great outdoors. However, ordinary windows can also represent a major source of unwanted heat gain in summer and significant heat loss in winter.

At Glass Tech Australia, we offer a variety of residential and commercial glass products for windows and doors, with toughened, laminated, tinted and insulated glazed options that can meet most design parameters. Our insulated glass units can reduce heat transfer by over 50% whilst minimising the need for artificial heating and cooling, and are an essential component to a modern energy efficient home and business.

Glass Tech Australia’s Laminated Glass can also provide you with the strength and stability in a glass when it is required most.

A glass pool fence is a contemporary and visually appealing safety barrier that encloses a swimming pool or spa area using glass panels. It offers a combination of style, functionality, and safety.

Constructed with toughened or tempered safety glass, the panels are thick and durable, designed to withstand impact and provide a secure barrier. The transparency of the glass allows for unobstructed views of the pool area, ensuring easy supervision of swimmers, especially children.

Glass pool fences are available in various configurations, including frameless and semi-frameless designs. Frameless glass fences create a sleek and seamless look, as the panels are attached to the ground or adjacent structures with minimal hardware. Semi-frameless options feature glass panels supported by discreet frames or posts, offering both style and stability.

In addition to their aesthetic appeal, glass pool fences are easy to clean and maintain. The smooth surface of the glass can be quickly wiped down to remove dirt and smudges. Glass is also resistant to corrosion, making it suitable for outdoor use in different weather conditions.

When installing a glass pool fence, it is important to ensure compliance with local safety regulations and building codes to ensure optimal safety standards. Professional installation is recommended to guarantee the proper alignment and stability of the glass panels.

Narrowline designs aim to minimize the visible width of these sightlines, creating a sleek and minimalist appearance. By reducing the width of the framing elements, such as the vertical mullions and horizontal rails, more emphasis is placed on the glass area, allowing for increased natural light and unobstructed views.

Narrowline window and door systems are popular in contemporary and modern architectural styles where clean lines and a streamlined aesthetic are desired. They are often used in residential and commercial buildings to create a sense of openness and maximize the amount of daylight entering the space.

It’s worth noting that the specific dimensions and configurations of narrowline window and door systems can vary depending on the manufacturer and the specific product line. The term “narrowline” generally refers to the overall design concept of minimizing visible frame width rather than indicating a specific measurement or dimension.
