Do Bradnam's install windows and doors?
Please refer to your nearest branch regarding this service.
Do I need to change my slab set up for your products?
No, you should always follow BCA building practices, which our products comply with seamlessly.
Can your products be recessed into the floor?
Yes. You will need to organise this with your builder. Ensure that BCA building practices are followed by your builder.
What are your other handle colour options?
We have an extensive range of hardware options available for our windows and doors. They can be seen on the products section of this website.
Alternatively, you can visit a Bradnam's showroom to view an actual hardware product.
My sliding doors and windows are not sliding properly. How do I fix this problem?
You need to replace the rollers due to wear and tear. To extend the life of rollers vacuum the sill of windows and doors regularly to prevent dust and dirt build up which causes rollers not to work properly.
What is the best size for windows and doors?
This depends on your personal requirements; you'll need to consider issues such as architecture, lifestyle, lighting and ventilation.
Do your products accommodate double glazing?
Yes. However, in most cases, you do not need double glazing. Our Sound Smart and Solar Comfort systems can help you with your acoustic and energy efficient needs.
Isn't energy efficiency about glass - why do Bradnam's sell a window and door system?
It is true that glass has an impact on the energy efficiency of windows and doors. However, other components such as frame and seals also influence the energy efficiency of windows and doors.
It is actually the critical selection of frame, seals and glass, and how well they are designed together, that determines the overall energy efficiency of windows and doors.
How do I determine the climate zone of my house?
The Australian Building Codes Board has a map of Australia, which shows each climate zone. The map is accessible from http://www.abcb.gov.au/
Does having 5 star windows and doors mean that I achieve a 5 star house?
No. Everything in the 'building envelope' must contribute. The most important factor is adequate insulation - but windows and doors are also important.
The star system used for window and door performance is to show relative performance, the same way fridged do. A 5 star house need to achieve a specific rating based on its location, and that rating is for the performance of the whole building - with each separate part doing its job.
Can Bradnam's do my energy ratings for me?
No. An ABSA accredited assessor must be used to model a building's thermal performance.
Are your products suitable for cyclonic regions?
Yes, our products are suitable for cyclonic regions. Speak to a Bradnam's representative for more information on our cyclone rated product range.
