The AGP System
New Zealand's leading double-glazing technology
New Zealand's all-round best performing double-glazing
Our insulated, high-performance system, The AGP System, uses the best components and technology available in New Zealand, featuring argon gas and ATS - Architectural Thermal Spacer™. The AGP System is backed with an extended 12-year warranty - two years longer than the industry standard or legislative requirements.
What is The AGP System?
The AGP System is a double-glazed unit which is made using world class components and industry leading technology. The panes of glass are processed using a highly automated, precision process to ensure their high quality.
ATS - Architectural Thermal Spacer™
A warm-edge spacer that holds the two glass panes of your double-glazed windows and doors apart and creates a seal to hold in the argon gas used in The AGP System.
An invisible inert gas which is used as an insulator to create an additional barrier to heat loss and heat absorption, improving thermal performance.
Bonded to glass and secondary sealant
A continually evolving formulation used to ensure durable bonding between glass panes. This creates an airtight seal for the space between panes, providing additional protection for the primary seal.
What does it do?
Your windows and doors are a complete system with each component contributing to a warm, comfortable, healthy home.
Reduces heat transfer
The AGP System uses ATS to keep warm and cold areas separated, and an argon gas fill to act as an insulator. These components work together to reduce heat loss and heat absorption through your glazing.
Replaces traditional aluminium spacer system
The AGP System has replaced the traditional aluminium spacer system with ATS which is a better performing, single component thermoplastic spacer that is bonded to the glass. This technology outperforms existing spacers and edge seal systems available in New Zealand.
The AGP System
What are the benefits?
The internal and external glass panes in The AGP System are separated with ATS to reduce the likelihood of condensation forming on the glass inside the home, reducing the risk of mould growth and increasing the homeowner’s health and wellbeing.
The AGP System pairs ATS with argon gas to reduce heat lost through the glass, contributing to an improvement in the window systems’ overall thermal performance.
ATS – Architectural Thermal Spacer is made to flex with changes in pressure and tension on the window edge seal, improving The AGP System’s longevity. ATS offers better reliability by replacing traditional rigid spacer systems, which have multiple parts, with an innovative single-component system.
The superior seal integrity of ATS improves The AGP System’s argon gas retention and reduces the risk of moisture vapour leaking into the unit which is why we back our double-glazed products with a 12-year warranty.
Our double-glazed units use ATS - a smooth, matt black spacer which is robotically extruded for a uniform appearance. The AGP System has a single join, unlike other spacers which can have multiple joins. The matt black finish also reduces the reflectance of the frame colour.
