Two panes are better than one. This is true when comparing a sealed, double-glazed unit to a single pane of glass used in windows and doors. Double glazed windows and doors from Next Generation Glass can significantly reduce your building or home’s heating and cooling energy costs and noise pollution from busy streets or noisy neighbours. How? It’s the space between the panes that makes all the difference. You can trust the experience and expertise of the team at Next Generation Glass to guide you in making smart decisions about the right glass for your building.
Double glazed glass insulates a building passively, without any energy, all year long, for free.
Buildings lose precious heat in the winter and let in unwanted heat in the summer. A building’s weakest thermal link is its windows and doors, attributing to around 49% of a building’s heat loss in winter and up to 87% of a building’s heat gain in summer. Far too much energy and money is spent trying to balance out that transfer of heat. Next Generation Glass can fit your home or commercial building with a product that will effectively insulate your doors and windows – sealed units of double glazed glass, ready to work for you all year long, for free.
New homes are required to meet a strict 6 Star Energy rating to be given a Certificate of Design Compliance. This rating is all about the home’s thermal efficiency and windows and doors are the key culprits when it comes to unwanted heat transfer. Extraneous alterations can be made to a building’s design, added awnings and additional brickwork for example, but why wouldn’t you fix the problem at its source? The sun heats up windowpanes in summer that in turn heats the inside of the house. In winter the opposite takes place, indoor heaters heat up a home’s windowpanes and the heat is transferred to the outside environment. Yes, you are effectively paying to heat your neighbourhood.
A sealed unit of double glazed glass prevents this unwanted transfer of heat. Next Generation Glass panels have been built with ‘gap’ of 16 – 20mm between the two glass panes. This precise gap is designed to deliver the most efficient insulation possible. If the gap is too close, the heat is easily transferred between the panes. If the gap is too wide, internal convection disrupts the insulating effectiveness.
How it works is simple, what’s hard to understand is why we would choose to combat cold winters and sweltering summers with expensive to run heating and cooling units that must complete against thermally inefficient doors and windows. Next Generation Glass seeks to rectify this providing superior quality products and significant ongoing savings to one satisfied customer at a time.
It is estimated that a building fitted with Next Generation Glass double glazed windows and doors will use 50-80% less energy to achieve the same cool house in summer and cosy home in winter than compared with low quality single paned doors and windows. Lower energy use equates to reduced energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint for the building owner. Live smarter and allow Next Generation Glass double glazed doors and windows to do more than half the work for you, for no ongoing cost.
It’s not only heat that is transferred by windows and doors; noise is too. Noise pollution can have a number of negative effects on your quality of life so sleep easier and enjoy the tranquility of Next Generation Glass acoustically measured double glazed windows and doors.
At first glance Next Generation Glass soundproof double glazed windows look like any other stylish window product you may choose for your home or office, however they are actually the result of years of laboratory and field tests in ‘noise reduction’.
According to the Australian Window Association “sound insulation measurements must be on the total window system and not just the glazing”. We agree, so that’s exactly how Next Generation Glass double glazed windows and doors are tested.
CSIRO tests show that Next Generation Glass double glazed windows and doors have sound-absorbing capability to cut loudness by greater than 75%. Noise reduction rates will vary when these panels are installed onsite due to various environmental factors such as the material used for wall and ceiling insulation and even the orientation of the building.
Double glazed windows don’t have to mean double the price. You can have all of the thermal and noise reducing benefits of double glazed windows for only a small amount more than single glazed windows and doors. Typically, when ordering direct from Next Generation Glass, double-glazed windows and doors will only cost 10-15% percent more than single glazed panes. The benefits of double glazed windows and doors to reduce a building’s heating energy costs will see smart building and home owners saving money from the day their double glazed windows and doors are installed. These savings are enjoyed every summer and every winter for the lifetime of the building!
Next Generation Glass can achieve this price advantage because it fabricates its custom frames to suit double glazed glass panes. There is no double measuring, redesigning or wasted materials or time. Next Generation Glass have double-glazing down to a fine art, that’s why it’s in the name, Next Generation Glass and Double Glazing.

I cannot thank you enough for the excellent work you did at Concept Marketing. Everything was professionally done; from turning up on time for the initial measure through to the no-fuss installation. The finished product looks visually stunning and the client agrees. As far as I am concerned, you guys are a breath of fresh air in a somewhat stereotyped industry. It’s good to see there are still professionals out there that deliver what is promised. I have and will continue to recommend you to other clients. Just make sure I get first preference when a job comes by. Keep up the great work.Rodney Deville | Starwest Commercial
Anroc Constructions would like to thank Next Generation Glass for all your effort completing the below jobs: Aussie Living Homes head office in Osborne Park. Smart Homes head office Osborne Park. We were all put under a lot of time and costing pressure to complete these two jobs. The project co-ordination and workmanship was excellent. Next Generation Glass experience in solving problems and completing the job was very professional. Anroc would be happy to recommend Next Generation Glass to any company.Marek Kovac | Anroc Constructions
Recently we needed to expand our office space to accommodate for our rapidly growing team. After drawing up some initial designs we engaged with the team from Next Generation Glass to provide advice and install our internal glass walls. We found their expertise and advice were a major contributor to our project and helped us achieve a very modern and professional looking office. We cannot recommend them enough to anyone wanting an office fit-out that stands out and has that “wow factor”. We will be engaging their services again with our upcoming stage 3 expansion.Chris | Logic Networks
We wish to thank you for the excellent job in converting the windows and doors in our home to double-glazed panels. Next Generation Glass provided a quality job and my husband and I were delighted with your total professionalism and honesty from our first meeting. We found you reliable and extremely hard working. You have enhanced the comfort in our home and we definitely feel a lot more secure. Another bonus is the reduction in energy costs for both heating and cooling. Noise disturbance has reduced significantly too. We would be happy to recommend Next Generation Glass to anyone.John & Joan, Jandakot
I would like to demonstrate my appreciation for the quality workmanship, attention to detail, professionalism and service provided by Next Generation Glass on the installation of double-glazed windows and doors in our home. They certainly look good and have lived up to their promise of reducing noise as we live near a busy road in Leeming. The double doors are amazing and are an impressive feature that everyone has commented on arriving to our home. Of note, the door frame is superbly fitted. Thank you once again to John and Steve who did a fantastic job.Rhyon Johnson, Leeming
Next Generation Glass were very efficient on time and well priced. John re-glazed much of our large house and we could not be happier. In fact we have got John back to do further work and recommended him to my daughter Natalie, an Architect. Now she has had John do some of the work on her new home. John has a great work ethic and is very easy to deal with. Highly recommended!Terry Edwards
Thank you Steve, John & Dean for the successful installation of our double-glazed windows. From the prompt response to my request for a quote through to the ‘on-time’ installation the service has been great. We immediately noticed a reduction in outside noise and we feel very snug. Our only regret is not getting the windows replaced sooner. We would have no hesitation in recommending Next Generation Glass to any future client.Denise Salkeld
Thanks to Next Generation Glass for installing double-glazing throughout our home with a fast, friendly service and no fuss or mess. After having roller shutters over a period of 23 years, I wished I had installed double-glazing much earlier. Outside noise level is nonexistent; we used to have to put up with power tools and generators almost daily. Heat levels have reduced considerably too. On a 44 degree Celsius day I turned the air-con on at 10am and off again at 1pm. The house stayed cool for 6 hours before needing AC again! The windows and doors have opened up my home, they are attractive and fresh. Your team's attention to detail and finish is by far the best I have come across with any trades.Paul and Valerie Osborne
I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great job you have done with my new windows. They look fantastic. Steve, your professionalism and care in helping me make my choices was outstanding. I will certainly be recommending Next Generation Glass to others. Thanks again.Brenda Hogg | Commercial Law Solutions
I used Next Generation Glass & Double Glazing to remove my old sliding door at home. They replaced the door with a new commercial sliding door. My experience using Next Generation Glass has been a good one. Firstly, their service was great! They came out quickly and measured up my job and gave me a quote within days. They use top quality products, which means if I had used them the first time around I wouldn’t have had to pay to have the old one replaced! From my experience, I’m happy to recommend Next Generation Glass & Double Glazing. They're a local company that deliver good products with great service and on time.Sam, Atwell
