Fiberglass 500 Series
when only the best of the best will do
Our Casement, Awning, and Fixed Casement Fiberglass 500 Series windows feature:
- Pultruded fiberglass frame and sash assembled with tightly silicone sealed mitered corners and mechanically secured with nylon, glass reinforced corner keys. Our windows utilize thick walled fiberglass pultrusions with a closed frame instead of an opened frame. The closed frame design creates a much stronger and more rigid window when compared to the industry norm of open framed fiberglass windows.
- Foam filled frame and sash designed to increase the energy efficency by stopping convective currents through the frame and reducing the conduction of heat.
- Triple weather-stripping using top quality Qlon foam seals provide an air and water tight perimeter that does not shrink or expand with temperature fluctuations.
- Slim line design provides more glass area for a bigger, brighter view without sacrificing strength. The casement window frame assembly has an overall frame height of 3". The fixed picture window provides a 100% accurate architectural match to the operable casement window.
- Multiple color options using Sherwin Williams Polane S Plus industrial grade polyurethane enamel coatings.
- Multi-point locking system keeps the casement and awning windows closed tightly against the elements with one simple operation.
- Folding handle allows for various interior window treatments with no interference from the attractive handle.
- Customized glass packages using energy efficient Cardinal double pane and triple pane IGUs. Dual film Heat Mirror IGUs with krypton gas fills.
- NFRC and Energy Star Tested to guarantee the ultimate in energy efficiency.
- Custom Manufactured for your home so you can be assured of a perfect fit.
- 20-Year Waranty covers the entire window and labor. No hidden charges, plus it's transferable. This means new windows for your home and peace of mind for you.
- Stronger: It is 8x stronger than vinyl and 2x stronger than aluminum.
- More Energy Efficient: 500x lower thermal conductivity than aluminum, so it doesn't allow heat or cold from the outside into your home.
- Longer Lasting: Almost zero thermal expansion rate (essentially the same rate as glass) means tighter seals against weather and longer lasting.
- Lower Maintenance: Virtually maintenance-free frames stay true to form due to strength of materials. No need for sanding, painting, or staining.
- Environmentally friendly: Our material uses less embodied energy and resources to manufacture. Made from partially recycled materials.
- More Durable: Won't discolor, warp, rot, corrode, dent, or rust. Can withstand winds up to 203 mph, and does not absorb moisture.
- Slimmer in profile: Because of the strength of the fiberglass, the frames are slimmer allowing more visible glass area in each window.
- Unlimited in Design Possibilities: Offered in virtually unlimited colors and an interior wood veneer.
