Picture Window Features

process
Integrated brick-mould

An integrated brick-mould guarantees a perfect fit every time. It fills the gap between the window and the exterior surface (stone, siding, etc.). Aesthetically, it gives your home a richer look.

process
Low Root Pan Head Screws

This ensures the pressure is evenly distributed in the window and allows for expansion and contraction of the window as seasons change.

process
Multi-chambered, fusion-welded frame and sash

The multi-chambered structure not only prevents heat loss, but also improves the efficiency and structural integrity of the frame to maintain durability for decades.

process
Robust Structural Design

Thicker walls allow for extra chambers to enhance the rigidity needed for larger picture window units. The spacer between glazing panes also provides better insulation values and reduced heat loss.

process
Triple Seal

The three layers of Finned Weatherseal prevent air and water transmission, and reduces noise from the outside.

process
Push Down Screen

The push down screen has the perfect balance of functionality and elegance. It does not come with pins and can be easily removed at convenience. Ideal for privacy, shade and bug protection.

Energy Efficiency & Glass

Triple and Double glass

Using two glass panes (double glazed), the air gap in between the panes significantly reduces heat and sound loss and therefore conserves energy. This ensures warmer temperatures stay inside the room during winter, as it prevents heat from leaving the inside of your nicely-warmed rooms.

TempSmart™ Spacer System

It is a U-shaped silicone foam tape seal in between window glass panes that improves glass surface temperature and has a good sound absorption. It has a significant role in the overall performance of a window as it determines the amount of heat or cold that can pass through the glass panes. Used with Hot Melt butyl, it provides a great Warm-edge seal – that features a vapor backing system.

Laminated glass

This exceptional glass consists of two glass sheets that are permanently bonded to a tough, durable plastic interlayer. Laminated glass has a distinct property that it does not shatter like ordinary glass and the interlayer can absorb repeated blows from tools and weapons including bricks, hammers and crowbars. Glass cutters are also rendered useless for burglary, as the glass requires to be cut from both sides. Laminated glass offers a vital contribution toward protecting your family and valuables.

Energy Upgrades

process
Solar gain Low E glass

The best glass for most applications in a northern climate. It has a very high retention rate of the heat in your home in winter and prevents heat gain in summer. Since as much as 95% of your energy expense for heating and cooling combined goes for heating, this glass is more cost effective than other glass without a high SHGC.

process
Solar sheild Low E glass

Is chosen for uses where cooling costs outweigh heating costs in your energy usage, or where summer discomfort from heat build-up should be an important concern. This is the best glass for most applications in a southern climate. It has a very high reflection rate of the radiant outside heat to prevent heat gain in summer and in winter it still retains radiant heat once you turn on your furnace!

process
See and hear the difference with Diamond Premium Glass

VWD’s Diamond Premium Glass is 33% to 100% thicker than industry standards—that’s why it’s called Diamond Premium Glass! What this means is that outside noises stay outside where they belong, truly making your home a sanctuary. A window with Diamond Premium Glass will withstand much greater impact and will be a better insulator.

process
Foam-Insulating Windows Close the Gap on Energy Costs

Best of all, Foam-insulating windows provide an additional benefit to the already impressive advantages of warm edge and gas filling upgrades. The frame makes up about 15% of a window. Foam can provide up to a 10% reduction in heat loss through the window frame.

process
Argon Gas

Filled units reduce your window's conduction and convention of heat. Argon works well with Low E glass to maximize your new window's energy efficiency and performance.

process
Krypton Gas

Filling works where Argon can't! It is ideal for smaller air spaces created in triple glazing and can be combined with Argon in intermediate size spaces.

process
E-Clean Glass

Combines the benefits of Solar Shield LOW E with unique outer glass coating that gradually breaks down dirt while causing rain to sheet.

process
Triple Glazing With Zero Calories

With the insulation value of Triple Glass exceeding R8, this benefit is in demand by homeowners looking to save money on their heating bill with the added bonus of being kind to the environment.
