Window Walls

Specialists

Window Walls are a beautiful and energy-efficient way to add natural light and ventilation to your building.

At Hunter Windows, we offer a wide range of window wall systems to choose from, all of which are designed to meet your specific needs and budget.

What is a Window Wall?

A window wall is a type of exterior wall that is made up of mostly glass. Window walls can be used to create a seamless transition between the inside and outside of your building, providing stunning views and natural light.

Benefits of Window Walls

Window walls offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Increased natural light: Window walls allow more natural light into your building, which can help to reduce energy costs and improve indoor air quality.
  • Improved ventilation: Window walls can help to improve ventilation in your building, which can also help to reduce energy costs and improve indoor air quality.
  • Enhanced aesthetics: Window walls can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your commercial building.

Types of Window Walls

There are two main types of window walls:

  • Fixed window walls: Fixed window walls are made up of non-operable windows. This type of window wall is typically used in commercial buildings to provide natural light and ventilation.
  • Operable window walls: Operable window walls are made up of operable windows, such as sliding windows or casement windows. This type of window wall is typically used in homes to provide natural light and ventilation, as well as to allow for access to the outdoors.

What is the Difference Between a Window Wall and a Curtain Wall?

Window walls and curtain walls are both types of exterior walls that are made up of mostly glass. However, there are some key differences between the two systems.

Window walls are:

  • Built one floor at a time and are supported by the slabs above and below them
  • Typically used in commercial buildings to provide natural light and ventilation
  • Non-load bearing

Curtain walls are:

  • Built independently of the building structure and are attached to the building using a framing system
  • Typically used in commercial buildings to provide natural light and ventilation, as well as to provide structural support
  • Load bearing

Energy Efficiency

The right windows and doors make a huge difference to your building’s comfort and energy effciency.

High-performing windows and doors can make heating or cooling your home simpler and more cost effective, saving money on expensive electricity and gas. Although they are much larger framing systems, Elevate™ window and door systems are WERS-rated and tested to make choosing the right product as simple as possible to deliver comfort and performance in any environment.

Correct Placement & Installation

To get the highest energy efficiency from your windows and doors, it’s important that they are installed by a qualified professional, and located in the best position to take advantage of natural cross ventilation, light and solar heat gain in both summer and winter.

U-Values

U-values are the measure of how much heat is transferred through a window or door. The lower the U-value the more efficient it is at keeping the heat or cold out.

Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC)

SHGC measures how much solar radiation passes through a window or door. In a cool climate, a high SHCG will allow more solar heat to enter your home.

WERS Rated

WERS logo

WERS is the Window Energy Rating Scheme for windows and doors in Australia. It uses a 10-star system to rate the annual energy impact on a home, based on its U-value and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The more stars, the better.

Discover the key benefits of our aluminium window and door systems:

  • WERS rated for energy efficiency: Our products are rigorously tested and rated by the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS), ensuring they meet the highest energy performance standards in Australia.
  • Reduced energy costs and emissions: Up to 40% of a home’s energy for heating and cooling is lost or gained through windows. Our systems improve thermal performance, lowering energy bills and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
  • 10-star rating scale: Our products are rated on a 10-star scale against 17 window types, with higher stars indicating better performance. Our ThermalHEART™ aluminium windows and doors fall within the top-performing range.
