Retrofit Glazing

How does Winterglaze Retrofit Double Glazing Work?

A number of New Zealand homes have single pane windows, less efficient that more modern double glazed window solutions as a single pane of glass quickly conducts precious warmth from inside your home to the outside environment, wasting heat, energy and money.

The Winterglaze Retrofit double glazing units fit into a home’s current window joinery, providing a double ‘layer’ of glass with a pocket of air (or speciality gas) sealed in between. It is this separation between the panes that provides the window's insulation.

Winterglaze Retrofit units are manufactured from high quality components, including New Zealand manufactured Insulated Glass Units (IGUs), which are vital to the quality of insulation offered. With a five year warranty and the backing of the nationwide HomePlus group, you can feel reassured that your double glazing needs will be expertly taken care of.

Advantages of Winterglaze Retrofit double glazing

  • Reducing heat loss – installation of standard IGU’s (Insulating Glass Units) can decrease heat loss by between 47% to 54%, this can be dramatically improved by upgrading to a speciality gas instead of air in the sealed units, or special reflective glass products
  • Reduction of window condensation – (when used together with adequate ventilation), Winterglaze Retrofit double glazing can noticeably reduce the amount of condensation on windows
  • Colour matched to existing joinery – by matching Winterglaze Retrofit units to your current joinery, the visual impact is virtually non-existent
  • Noise reduction – Winterglaze Retrofit double glazing can reduce noise by up to 25% and even more with upgraded IGU units
