Double Glazing

Double-glazing is made from two pieces of glass sealed together with an air space or gas in between. Whether you are looking to keep your home warmer, quieter or to reduce condensation, Metro can recommend the best combination of glass types to meet your needs.

New Zealand building standards require new homes to be fitted with double-glazing. Recognising that single-glazed windows transfer cold very easily, and cause condensation to form on the inside of the windows.

Double-glazing reduces the amount of energy required to maintain a comfortable temperature from winter through to summer.  For a more comfortable home year round Metro recommend the use of Low E double-glazing

If you have an existing, home and want to upgrade your windows, RetroFit double-glazing can be easily done in most New Zealand homes.  In fact, Metro have over 20 years’ experience across the country for both timber and aluminium windows.
