Market Leadership

Exceptional Extruding & Finishing

  • Each extrusion is treated with a proprietary process that reduces cooling lines (most visible in clear anodizing).
  • Standard aluminum anodize is Class I compared to the half thick Class II.
  • Standard aluminum paint is Kynar 70% compared to a 50% content or polyester and/or acrylic bases.
  • Aluminum extrusions are produced within 30 miles of our factory.
  • Standard fiberglass paint is mixed to closely match the stock anodized finishes (Clear & Dark Bronze.)

The Most Professional Dealers

  • Demanding, yet rewarding dealer program that attracts the elite window specialists in each market.

Energy Compliance Answers

  • Proprietary Snapshot software provides detailed NFRC energy reports on every quote.
  • Team of engineers trained and certified to perform a thermal envelope analysis specific to the exact windows and doors on each quote. This reveals the true thermal performance characteristics of the window and door package.
  • New designs and re-designs incorporate "strut" technology (Series 3070-T, Series 3300-T, Series 3600-T, Series 3900-T & Series 3200-T)
    • Struts allow more attractive and sleeker shapes than poured in place thermal material.
    • Struts allow for stronger extrusions without compromising thin lines. For example, the Series 3070-T High Performance Interlocker.
  • The Series 3850-F fiberglass window emulates the design of the Series 3800-T aluminum system but provides improved U-factor results.
