Quality of our Glazing
Triple and quadruple glazing minimizes heat loss with R-value of 8-12
We customize solar energy and light transmittance for to increase energy efficiency and maintain comfortable temperature throughout the entire house
We provide wide glazing units that range from 1 ¾ in to 2 1/8 in (44-52mm). It empowers us to create soundproof glazing, adapted for different types of outside noise our customers are experiencing

Quality of Soundproof Insulation

By optimizing glazing we are able to use its unique qualities and achieve the high level of soundproofing.

We take each customer’s environment into account when calculating what type of glazing would be perfect to combat different types and levels of noise. There are four main categories of noise that our customers experience:

  • Highway traffic
  • Suburb
  • Airport proximity
  • Railway or heavy equipment proximity

Most of the windows have an STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating of 18-30 which means that they reduce noise by 18-30 decibels. Our regular glass units have an STC rating of 33 and soundproof models have an STC of 38-43 which means that our soundproof windows reduce outside noise by additional 13 decibels in comparison to most windows in the market. To illustrate what difference 13 decibels make please see the table below. It shows how people perceive difference in the volume level and its affect on a person.

Noticeably: that is the difference between our standard tilt and turn windows and our competitors tilt and turn windows.

Evidently: can be achieved by implementing Soundproof Upgrade Level 1

Significantly: can be achieved by implementing Soundproof Upgrade Level 2

For houses that are located close to airports we provide an option that would decrease the volume by up to 20 dB.

Thermal Insulation

Sometimes rooms in the same house have different temperatures which is caused by the direction the windows are facing and the amount of sun heat they are receiving. This difference often confuses the climate control system that can start working in the heating mode or, on contrary, turn on air conditioning based on the indicators in one of the rooms. It results in imbalanced temperatures inside the house which brings discomfort to the home dwellers. One of the best ways to prevent this imbalance from happening is to choose different type of glazing for windows in different rooms.

  • Our triple glazed units have a R-value of 8.3 – 8.7 (U-value is 0.12) with Argon filling and up to 10 (U-value 0.1) with Krypton filling
  • Our quadruple glazing units have with Krypton filling have a R-value up to 12 (U-value 0.08)

Managing Solar Heat

We all know that rooms facing different cardinal direction can have different temperatures. Rooms facing north are usually colder than rooms facing south which can be inconvenient during hot and cold seasons.

So windows in the northern parts of the house need to have high visible transmittance to let sunlight inside and high solar heat gain to keep rooms at a comfortable temperature.

Windows facing south need a balance between visible transmittance and solar heat gain to ensure that rooms are light and not overheated in the summer.

We have a variety of glass combinations that suit our customers living in different locations in North America.

Info

Since our windows are manufactured in Europe the lead time is ranges from 6 to 8 weeks. Order slightly earlier and you will be satisfied by savings, quality and durability.
Our top priority is the quality of our products so we use thicker glass and steel reinforced frame for long term durability which makes our windows 20-30% heaver then regular windows.
