Retrofit double glazing

Compared to single glazing, double-glazing offers the benefits of improved insulation, lower energy costs and noise reduction.

But if your home’s existing single-pane window frames are still in good condition you may not wish to replace the whole unit as part of a sustainable renovation. Thermawood Retro-fit is a dry glazing system for double glazing existing windows and doors. The system is designed to fit any wooden joinery and offers the benefit of preserving the original aesthetic of the home. The process involves the removal of the existing window glass and the replacement with a high-performance sealed insulating glass unit. If the windows are timber framed it is modified in-situ, if aluminium, it is provided with a set of frame adaptors and opening sashes are replaced. This is a New Zealand product that is now available in Australia.
