Elevate Your Home with Architectural Grade Windows and Doors: A Q&A with Hanlons

Windows and doors are more than just functional elements of a home; they are architectural features that can greatly enhance its aesthetic appeal, energy efficiency, and security. In this Q&A session with Hanlons, a leading supplier of architectural grade windows and doors, we delve into the world of high-performance building materials and explore why they are becoming the preferred choice for homeowners looking to elevate their living spaces.

  1. For many homeowners, windows and doors are an afterthought. Why are architectural grade options different, and what sets them apart from standard selections?

Their high performance features and bold frames sets them apart for many homeowners. They have superior strength which means they can be manufactured in larger sizes and can be much more of a feature for the home.

  1. Beyond aesthetics, what are some of the key benefits homeowners can expect from installing these windows and doors in their homes?

High performance, strength, flexibility, and options. Architectural grade windows and doors can be made bigger, are great for high wind and water rated areas, and have more options for hardware than residential series products. This also means you get improved functionality.

  1. Energy efficiency is a major concern for many Australians. How can windows and doors contribute to a more sustainable home?

Windows and doors are a large part of the structure of a home. Especially these days when people want more natural light and to open their spaces up to the outdoors. This means that there is also more opportunity for heat and cold to escape through them. Thankfully there are energy efficient products we can offer to significantly reduce this in the home. Thermally broken or inline revealed frames paired with double glazing drastically increases the energy efficiency of the home. Saving you money on your heating and cooling and just creating a more comfortable environment for your family.

  1. Security is another top priority – do architectural grade windows and doors enhance home security compared to standard options?

There are more hardware options for architectural grade windows and doors which give you more opportunity to upgrade handles and locks. Screens are also a great way to add extra security to your home. Crimsafe screens add another barrier between intruders and your valuables.

  1. Investing in architectural grade windows and doors is a significant decision. What advice can you offer to homeowners considering this upgrade for their homes?

Come into the showroom to experience the difference in person. This is a great way to get a feel for the different products and know that you are getting the quality that you are paying for. Also, jumping onto our website and socials is a great way to see the products installed into homes and see what the finished product will look like.

  1. Why is it important to work with an experienced architectural builder when it comes to including architectural grade materials within a build?

Builders are integral when it comes to choosing architectural grade products, especially windows in your home. They work with them every day and know how they are going to be installed and work with other products and materials in the home. We work closely with the homeowner, architect, and builder to make sure the products you are purchasing are going to work to your needs and give you your overall desired result.
