To be fair... and I think yours is 2340? They could have had the doors rebated rather than the mushroom stop. I think new doors are in order, maybe…

UPVC windows vs aluminium thermally broken

Hi
We sell all over Australia. But we cannot provide service support outside Victoria, only spare parts.
We no longer provide EcoTherm because our standard non-broken product, EcoTech, is equal in performance.

Welcome.
The casement was not separately tested, so it defaults to 5 and yet it uses the same profiles and seals.. The awning tested at 0.15, I have no idea…

Hi
All windows are physically tested in a NATA accredited laboratory under AS2047. This includes rain and wind consisting of negative and positive pressure. Our casement window and awning window use…

Gaps around windows during build

This is normal for windows with architraves. The gap is intended and is used to square the window and make it operable. There needs to be a packer behind…

Unacceptable.
Sounds like a brickie problem, but it may be deeper. Complain to a higher level...

Yes, but low-E glass is already a heat absorber, so adding tint will absorb more heat and could cause spontaneous fracture...

Cost of Electric Windows

You can have a manually operated window combined with a detachable extended handle. This goes for louvre or awning. Electric is likely to add $600+ per window.

Timber would do the job. Or just buy a length of aluminium flat profile from Alspec
