One of the team's project highlights is a townhouse refurbishment in one of Australia's highest settlements, Jindabyne.
Situated at 918 metres above sea level, Jindabyne is connected to neighbouring Kosciuszko Road, Alpine Way West, Wodonga, Barry Way and Gippsland. Town residents are no strangers to chilly weather and snow falls, making Jindabyne a popular service town for Australia's ski resorts.
In preparation for the upcoming ski season, Wilkins Windows was commissioned to complete a townhouse refurbishment project. The project involved the installation of uPVC double glazed windows and doors, which are ideal for the extreme temperatures of the Snowy Mountains.

Double glazing combines multiple insulated glass panels into a single window or door system. The insulated glass panes are separated by an air gap, providing an additional layer of insulation. Wilkins Windows uPVC double glazed windows and doors are made of high-performing Low-E glass panels that deliver maximum thermal insulation. The state-of-the-art glass technology employs thin layers of metallic coatings that reflect the infrared radiant energy and ultraviolet rays from the sun, while conversely reflecting heat back into the room. The optically transparent Low-E glass enables the light to pass through the glass to brighten up the indoor ambience.
Aside from outstanding thermal performance, uPVC double glazed windows and doors also bring remarkable benefits for home and property owners.
