Glass Options

Did you know?

Up to 49% of a buildings heat loss and a staggering 87 % of a buildings direct heat gain occurs through standard clear windows.

In these days of ever increasing costs of power and government legislation, it is critical to make the correct glass selections to maximise personal comfort
and minimise the drain on the family budget over the life of your house.

Bradnams Windows and Doors by DABSCO offer many glass options for all budgets giving choices in colour and performance that will provide energy savings that will last a lifetime.

Dark Grey Solarblock

DABSCO’s standard toned glass offers considerable extra strength over standard clear annealed glass and provides up to a 67% reduction in UV rays a 30% reduction in heat gain and 50% reduction in glare, meaning a significant lessening in potential damage to window coverings, carpet and furniture which will also provide a substantial reduction in cooling costs.

Sunergy Glass

Sunergy Glass is an energy efficient glazing solution for residential homes, units and commercial building applications. Sunergy glass is unique when compared to ordinary clear glass in that it performs two distinct functions:

  • it stops a large proportion of the suns direct heat from entering through the window;
  • it also has a special hard and durable coating (called Low-E) which gives added insulation, similar in the way roof or wall insulation works.This means that Sunergy glass keeps the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter saving on energy cooling and heating costs.

Added protection from the harsh effects of the sun is also another important feature of Sunergy providing a 72% reduction in UV rays.Unlike traditional tinted glass which works by restricting the level of light coming into the home, Sunergy glass has a unique filter that allows higher levels of natural light but still stopping direct heat from entering. Rooms stay brighter for longer in the day

Sunergy glass is available in Neutral (light grey tint), Green or Azure (blue).

DABSCO can also provide other special glass products upon request.

Shower Screens and Mirrors

Shower screens and mirrors are manufactured with tempered or laminated glass which ensures safety in wet slippery environments such as bathrooms. If broken, the glass will either shatter into very small non jagged pieces or be held together with a plastic laminated sheet. This will ultimately reduce the chance of severe cuts and injury.

Preventative Care

As an optional extra, we can apply Enduro Shield which is a protective, invisible coating that repels water, soap scum and grime.
It is effective in the long term maintenance of shower and mirror surfaces because of its repelling properties. Enduro Shield is revolutionary as it ensures that shower or bath enclosure glass remains as clean and shiny as the day it was bought, with the least possible effort.

  • Once only application
  • Helps prevent harmful bactiria buildup
  • Promotes a germ free environment
  • Superior glass protection against harmful corosive effects of hard water, soap scum and chemicals
  • Reduces the need to surface clean by up to 90%

Cleaning

The safest cleaner for a mirror or shower screen is clean, warm water used with a soft cloth. An approved glass cleaner such as Windex or similar products may be used. Be careful not to allow the edges of the mirror to get or remain wet over a period of time.

  • Do not use any acid or alkali cleaners. They can attack both the surface and edges as well as the backing of the mirror. And never use an abrasive cleaner on any glass surface.
  • Do not use cleaners with heavy ammonia bases. These too can damage mirror edges and backing and result in a ruined mirror.
  • Never spray any cleaner directly on to a mirror. Instead, apply the cleaner to a soft cloth and then wipe the mirror. This will also prevent "puddling" at the mirror edge where the cleaner could attack the backing.
  • Always use soft, grit-free cloths when cleaning a mirror to reduce chances of scratching the surface.
  • Be sure to dry all joints and edges thoroughly to be certain no cleaner comes in contact with the edge and backing.
  • Routine cleaning maintenance can be accomplished simply and effectively by washing, rinsing and drying the mirror and shower screen.

Crimsafe® and 007 Security

Instructions for Care

Due to the woven mesh design, Crimsafe can trap airborne dirt and impurities, just like a fly-screen, and over time these can give it a stained appearance. A quick clean will remove these marks and leave it looking like new.

Crimsafe® mesh will not rust as it is made from 304 Grade Stainless Steel which has a lifespan of approximately 65 years. Crimsafe mesh is prepared using a high grade pre-treatment and is coated with a high durability commercial grade
UV fade-resistant black powder coating that ensures the good looks and long life of your product. The anti-static powder coating actively works against the buildup of airborne particles and makes cleaning easier. Providing the underlying pre-treatment remains intact, Crimsafe mesh will not rust.

Regular maintenance involves a wash down of the mesh and frames. It is recommended to use Crimsafe Wash and Wax combined with warm water. Lightly scrub the screen with a soft bristle brush and then rinse/hose with clean water.

As a guide to how frequently you should clean your Crimsafe product use the following table:

Environment Description Cleaning Interval
Mild More than 10km from beachfront or sheltered bay Every 6 months
Moderate 1 km to 10 km from beachfront or sheltered bay 2 to 3 months
Marine 500m to 1 km from beachfront or 100m to 1 km from sheltered bay 2 to 4 weeks
Severe Marine Within 500m of beachfront or within 100m of sheltered bay 1 to 2 weeks
