Classic Range // High Performance Sliding Window

Introduction

The Carinya Classic High Performance Sliding Window is a new development not previously available in the residential category for Australia’s most demanding terrain requirements.

Besides a modern designer look, the Carinya Classic High Performance Sliding Window is packed with a multitude of performance features, many of which are simply not available in competing products:

  • Rather than unsightly exposed tracks found in most residential windows, Carinya has a complete range of threshold and jamb infills as well as end caps to conceal all cavities. This not only provides a superior quality, commercial grade finish but also minimises places for insects, dirt and grit to gather.
  • A range of attractive interlock options to meet a wide variety of wind load requirements.
  • Sills to suit the most severe conditions of residential construction.
The entire Carinya Collection has been fully tested to meet or exceed Australian Standards AS2047, AS1170, AS1191 and AS3959.

Hardware

The Carinya Classic Sliding Door has been matched with commercially designed hardware to ensure style and durability.

The Yarra Curve door lock provides functionality and varying finish options for your project. This functional design allows for ease of use and utilises 5 pin cylinder security for peace of mind.

Custom bump stops and end caps have been designed to minimise door slamming, and add to the aesthetic appeal of a professionally finished product, creating a door of unique quality in the residential market.

To maximise the performance of your sliding door we have utilised our proprietary Alspec roller system. It’s the same system used throughout our commercial range and is available in two gauges -

  • Custom: for the majority of loads up to 80kg per panel;
  • Heavy duty commercial: designed for extra large sashes and major double glazing loads up to 160kg per panel.

Stainless rollers and optional stainless cover track are also available for coastal environments, allowing for enduring performance and durability.

Both roller systems have been designed to interact with the stiles to create a strong and robust panel, minimising movement in joints and opportunities for air infiltration.

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 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.
