MB HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, June 12, 2012 5 ADVERTISING FEATURE UNIQUE SHUTTERS ARE A PERFECT FIT Details: Call 02 8858 0980, go to shuttersaustralia.com.au or visit their workshop and showroom at Unit 5, 9 Packard Avenue, Castle Hill. SHUTTERS Australia recently manufactured a very large set of exterior Rialto Aluminium Shut- ters for one of its customers on the Central Coast. The job was significant in sev- eral aspects -- the balcony was 15m above ground level and the fin- ished product was very large at 7.2m wide and 1m high. The custom-designed shutters were made in the company's Cas- tle Hill workshop and feature durable aluminium and powder- coated paint to cope with the exposed position at Umina Beach. ''Our customer specified they wanted a 22-degree louver pitch to allow some light in, but block the sun during the hottest times of the day, as well as stop bad weather,'' said Braydon Inwood, Proprietor of Inwood Blind and Shutters Australia. ENERGY EFFICIENCY RIGHT PANES MEAN GAIN SLASH HEATING BILL BY FITTING MODERN GLASS Janita Singh Modern glass technology keeps you warm in winter by retaining heat while saving on energy costs. WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY The selection of your windows is a vital consideration. To get the most out of your home's potential and to decide your glazing and window needs, involve a building designer, architect, builder or window supplier in your home design process. Cool in summer -- Simple toned glass can reduce the amount of natural daylight entering your home. As simple toned glass can absorb much of the solar energy striking its surface, the glass itself can get hot and this heat will be re-radiated into your home. Warm in winter -- Double glazing works by introducing a second layer of glass to create a static air gap and transparent insulating barrier. THERE is so much more to win- dows than what meets the eye. More than any other feature, windows set the tone of your home by providing views, venti- lation, daylight and a sense of spaciousness. They also have a critical role in your home's comfort and energy consumption. And that's why homeowners are looking at win- dows to save energy. As we move into winter, we increasingly have to endure extra energy costs to heat our homes, so it's important to learn a few energy-saving facts about modern window and glass technology. The new building standard re- quires windows to meet the six- star energy saving standard. This means we have to think beyond wall and ceiling insulation and ordinary windows. Ordinary windows are an en- ergy leak. Energy-efficient win- dows create a more comfortable, light-filled, secure home and re- duce energy consumption. Greater energy efficiency lets you have larger window areas as well, maximising views and light. Viridian energy-efficient glass has launched a website allowing consumers to make informed choices using windows. SeeBeyondWindows.com brings together a group of suppliers and industry professionals passionate about helping consumers choose the right energy-efficient windows for their homes.
