Home Living : August 24th 2010
4 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, August 24, 2010 Safe and sound » ADVERTISING FEATURE HOMELIVING Most of us understand that living in the city comes with disadvantages such as increased crime, and neighbourhood and aircraft noise, although as population grows and the density of urban dwellings increases, so too does the daily impact of these realities. Maintaining our quality of life amid the hustle and bustle remains an important concern, with many taking a lateral approach to making changes to their homes which ease the burden of city living. One approach that is increasing in favour is making use of ''sanctuary'' glass in windows, or glazing systems that offer benefits such as noise reduction, increased safety and security for the family, protection against fires and storms, glare control and even self- cleaning. Glass manufacturer Viridian's marketing manager Lachlan Austin said that well- placed, high-performance windows were fundamental to good home design, particularly in the city. ''We find that noise prevention is one of the biggest concerns among city residents,'' Mr Lachlan said. ''And now, with very advanced window technologies, there's absolutely no need to endure that level of city living disturbance any more. Families also ask about tough glass which acts as an alternative to ugly security screens, and this is definitely an option. ''We have one product called IntruderGuard that is 20 times harder to break through than standard glass and achieves this without making the building look like a fortress. These types of glass can also be easily combined with energy-efficient glass that protects the home from glare and large variations in temperature to ensure a more comfortable and healthy home to live in." To create your own sanctuary, and decide on your specific glazing needs, Viridian has just launched its new online resource, Viridian Residential at viridianglass.com. The new site applies sound educational strategies with the latest website functionality to communicate where and how best to use glass in the home in creative and fresh ways, offering product solutions for any number of glass requirements. ''We realise glazing choices can be technical and consumers don't have the time to spend researching all the different ways to use glass and how to apply it effectively in different areas of the home," Mr Lachlan said. ''We built Viridian Residential to help homebuyers and renovators make sense of the options quickly and easily." This resource achieves clarity for the user with functions that include video presentations, a Product Selector tool and window and housing animations. ''The right choices made up-front can deliver life-long sanctuary in the city, with great energy-efficient performance that permits considerable savings over the life of the home."
