The truth about double glazed stacker doors
While stacker doors, which comprise a number of glazed panels that slide along a track to stack, one behind the other, are a popular door option in Melbourne, the very nature in the way they operate and are structured doesn’t maximise the thermo-efficiency of your home.
Furthermore they are not used as an external door in any other English speaking country for the following reasons:
1. They do not pass the most stringent air permeability tests and therefore leak energy, water and let in more extrusive external noise.
2. They cannot be accredited with the UK police preferred security accreditation, Secure by Design, and are therefore a weak point of entry to your home for want be intruders.
3. When incorporating Double Glazed units or IGU’s they inevitably become a service issue and the door leafs themselves become difficult to operate over a short period of time.

What our customers say
"To say we were totally pleased with our Ecostar windows and doors is an understatement. Instantly, the traffic noise was a thing of the past and the house was so quiet. Wonderful. And, despite energy costs having really increased over the last few years, our bills were around 40% lower than in the past. We sold our home for $1.2 million and, bearing in mind where we live, we would never have got anywhere near this price if we had not invested in Ecostar Double Glazing."
Alan and Jan Hume
"I could not be more delighted with such a positive result. We can hardly hear any traffic now, even at peak hours on the freeway. We are sleeping so much better too. In summer the house is noticeably cooler and we use hardly any air conditioning. We can look forward to winter for the first time since we moved in"
"We had our first five windows and a door replaced with Ecostar double glazing four years ago and loved the results so we saved up to get the rest of our house double glazed and we couldn't be happier. The windows look fantastic, they’re more secure, save us money on energy bills and we’re less bothered by outside noise. Ecostar's service was excellent and their installers did a fantastic job, even taking away the old windows as part of their service."
Peter and Jill Garbett
"From the very first meeting it was clear that Ecostar was very professional. We quickly reached the conclusion that Ecostar products were of very high quality. The windows are looking great and we are very happy. I have just completed the Customer Service Survey and I am pleased to say I gave Ecostar top marks for their sales presentation, their surveyor, the office team and their installers. We will defnitely recommend Ecostar to our family and friends."
"Our house now looks fantastic. People walk through the house and cannot believe how much warmer the house has become. The 90% noise reduction has blown me away."
