Double Glazed Windows - The Story of CertainTeed
uPVC Framed Double-glazed windows are so energy-efficient, they’ve been used for their effectiveness since 1985 in extreme conditions from Antarctica to the Tropics.
|Founded in 1904 as a manufacturer of building products, the CertainTeed Corporation of America has become a trusted household name. (See Map)
In 1985, business partners Ross Wilson and Ian Rudd became fed up with the excessively high energy bills and poor acoustics in Australian homes, and decided to research a solution.
Their research led them to a discovery some 60 years ago by homeowners in Europe and the United States. And that is, that even in the most bitter winters or sweltering summers, you can enjoy moderate room temperatures with minimal energy expended or wasted.
Effective, insulating, double glazing were the key. And as they discovered, one of the world leaders in this technology was a company by the name of CertainTeed, a trusted household name in the United States since 1904.
Ross and Ian successfully negotiated the licence to bring the CertainTeed 'double glazed window' technology to Australia. The rest as they say, ‘is history’. CertainTeed Australia has enjoyed exciting growth and an impeccable reputation for more than 24 years.
