Australian building regulations have changed to focus on reducing energy consumption, so more consideration is required in the design and planning of buildings, with the move from five- to six-star energy ratings. As inefficient glazing is a major source of energy loss, Trend Thermashield energy-efficient window and door systems make it easy to evaluate the level of protection required for each window and door in a project.
The high-performance Trend Thermashield system makes buildings more energy efficient, more comfortable, reduces energy bills and lessens peak heating and cooling loads. This means smaller heating and cooling systems can be employed. Trend Thermashield frames with low thermal conductivity and low air infiltration complemented by energy-efficient double-glazed systems balance out the entire window system.
