Ease of operation: A single handle unlocks the multiple locking points, another crank lets the sash glide open. The hinge design allows you to conveniently reach the exterior of the glass for washing when the window is open.
Security: Multiple locking points surrounding the sash mean that the window is secure, tamper resistant and withstands strong wind pressures. Fusion welded for strength: sash and frame corners are miter-cut and welded, eliminating caulking and joints that may loosen and leak.
Triple seal design: The sash is designed to seal against the frame with three continuous seals and a dual cavity, pressure-equalized configuration.
Multi chambered walls: Double-wall construction increases strength, permits thorough water drainage and increases energy efficiency.
Architectural rating: Able to withstand heavy use, this window achieves a grade 70 rating (a rating often associated with resisting winds in excess of 130 mph) even when made in the large 3′ x 5′ “architectural” size. The rating signifies that the windows passed a battery of 2,500 cycles of opening, closing and locking, “misuse” torsion and loading, and subsequent retesting to prove continued air and water infiltration resistance.
Interior glazing: This glazing style presents a seamless sash to the outside elements and the effects of potential tampering. Well-proportioned sight lines:
Glass options: Options include high-performance and decorative glass.
Longevity of vinyl: Resists corrosion from pollutants, never needs painting and can be cleaned with soap and water.
