Classic Range // Double Hung Window

Introduction

Double Hung WindowThe Carinya Classic Double Hung Window is a slimline design to complement heritage houses and new homes aiming for a designer look.

Carinya has many visible advantages over alternative products in addition to its obvious aesthetic qualities. These include:

  • Specifically designed to accommodate screening within the head and sill to deliver that clean professional finish not available with many competitor products.
  • The Carinya attention to detail includes bump stops top and bottom to prevent frame damage.
  • Full perimeter weather piles reduce air and water infiltration.
  • A choice of lockable or latchable handles are available.
The entire Carinya Collection has been fully tested to meet or exceed Australian Standards AS2047, AS1170 and AS1191.

Hardware

The Carinya Classic Double Hung Window has been designed with matching stylish hardware, with the option for a lockable or non-lockable latch.

All Carinya double hung window sashes feature corner blocks in all four corners of the sashes. These blocks make the sash more rigid, reducing twist and movement. This reduction in movement increases the performance of the window by reducing opportunities for air, water and dust infiltration.

These proprietary Carinya corner blocks also interact with the balances in both the top and bottom sashes to provide a stable and secure window.

The spring balances come in a range of lengths and spring strengths to suit a wide variety of different window heights and sash weight. Combined with an adjustable balance friction foot this ensures that your custom made window will operate smoothly for many years to come.

Specially designed finseals are fitted all around both sashes. These seals act as insulation to prevent drafts, dust, light and other contaminants coming in from outside through the edges of the windows.

Energy Efficiency

Now you can install green, green glass at home - with designer style!

The Carinya Collection of aluminium framed windows and doors has been specifically designed to be environmentally friendly, reflecting Carinya's commercial market heritage, where thermal and acoustic performance are often critical.

Of all building materials including glass, timber and masonry only one material is 100% recyclable - Aluminium.

Windows and doors are vital to the energy efficiency of any home. Research by the Sustainable Windows Alliance of Australia shows the typical Australian home can achieve an increase of 2 to 2.5 stars energy efficiency simply by upgrading the windows.
Carinya Windows and Doors

Unlike many aluminium windows, Carinya has been designed for all major forms of eco-friendly glazing options without any alteration to the frame or any unsightly add-ons.

Carinya frames are designed for eco-friendly Low E glass, high thermal and high acoustic performance 10.5mm glazing. To maximise the energy efficiency of your glazing discuss your project with a specialist Carinya Dealer and/or your architect or designer.

Remember the three most important issues for achieving maximum energy efficiency in a home are:

  • Orientation - always try and have living areas facing north with seasonal shading.
  • Insulation.
  • Window quality and performance.
 

WERS Energy Ratings

The Housing Industry Association of Australia (HIA) strongly suggests you ensure the energy rating on your windows is WERS rated to be confident of its true performance. Carinya gives you that confidence as the entire Carinya Collection has been WERS rated for performance.

WERS

WERS stands for the Window Energy Rating Scheme that is managed by the Australian Window Association. WERS enables windows to be rated and labelled for their annual energy impact on a whole house, in any climate of Australia. WERS acts as a fair, rigorous and credible system for testing energy performance claims. It is about certified performance.

Energy rating for windows is here to stay as part of the federal government’s commitment to improving energy efficiency and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The flexible glazing options available in The Carinya Collection means that our windows and doors compare favourably in WERS performance and the resale value and comfort of your home are improved by the use of the high performance Carinya windows and doors. View the WERS Rating information here »
