AWS - HOW TO SPECIFY WINDOWS AND DOORS WITH CONFIDENCE
Getting the window and door specification right, is critical for your project. You need to consider wind loads, water ratings, acoustics, site conditions, thermal comfort, energy values and bush fire attack level. As well as accessibility, safety, usage, budget and aesthetics.
The requirements in an aged care facility, hospital or school are very different to a commercial office precinct or residential home.
Prior to development, we conducted research with architects, designers, and specifiers to better understand what you needed from a self-service platform. The overwhelming response was that it needs to be:
easy to use
quick to find information
offer more filtering options
provide the ability to compare products and
more images and projects to share with clients
We’ve taken this feedback on board to enhance functionality and give it a fresh new look and feel.

My Projects allows you to select and save individual products and any relevant resources to a particular project. This saves you time coming back to search for them. You can also compare products within the MyProject section, to assist decision making. Once you’re happy, you can quickly package and download files in one zip file and prepare custom brochures for your project file or clients. It’s also a great place to store references to your favourite AWS systems for quick access.
Product Selector includes additional filtering options for height and width, as well as options for product type, brand, solution, and energy rating.
Downloads are now categorised and sorted by file type and includes a filter option, making it quicker and easier to find what you need. Find CAD and Revit files, test reports, product information sheets, specification manuals and much more.
Search functionality has been given an overhaul, providing the ability to filter by file type.
Images and projects are now included on product pages so you can easily show your clients what a product will look like in-situ.
Colour swatches can now be easily compared and ordered.
