AUSTRALIAN WINDOW ASSOCIATION

The Australian Window Association is made up of over 450 window manufacturers and industry suppliers throughout Australia. Members of the association have products tested to Australian Standard AS2047. You can be confident that products are made to withstand Australian conditions when purchasing from an AWA member. Don't risk costly replacement of non compliant products that are not suited to Australian conditions.

The AWA also implements the Window Energy Rating Scheme (WERS) in large part due to teh fact that up to 40% of a home's energy used for cooling or heating is lost or gained through its windows. WERS rates the energy performance of window products, improving their thermal performance while reducing energy costs and Australia's greenhouse gas emissions.  The WERS website has over 60,000 custom rated window products to enable the right selection for your building in any climate zone.  www.wers.net
