Windows Story

Double-glazing is made from two pieces of glass sealed together with an air space or gas in between. Whatever you are trying to achieve whether it’s keeping your home warm or cool, trying to reduce noise, UV or sun or even increase security? Metro Performance Glass can help select the right Low E double glazing that delivers the right level of performance of what you are looking to achieve. So you can enjoy a more comfortable home.

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.

So the glass you choose can make a huge difference to the comfort of your home and the size of its energy bills. Double-glazing can reduce the amount of energy required to maintain a comfortable temperature from winter through to summer. Because windows are a key design factor for the insulation of houses, Metro offers a range of glass with high-tech coatings that create the optimum conditions inside.
