Glazing Units: Except for outswing units, IGUs are generally installed / replaced from the interior side.
Standard IGU: Cardinal LoE²-270® All Climate Solar Control double glazed, argon filled; U value 0.25 (R4), SHGC 0.37 for IGU only - more efficient glazing units also available
Sound Transmission Class: STC ratings are project-specific (typical values range from mid 30’s to low 40’s)
Low conductivity stainless steel edge spacer
Dual edge seal (PIB and Silicone)
Finish: Hydro-Tuff waterborne urethane coating (available in many standard colours, and virtually any custom colour).
Joint Construction: Joints are miter cut and fastened together with shear blocks. All fasteners are stainless steel.
Installation: Several installation methods can be utilized. Our preferred method is a clip anchor for sides and top with a back dam angle at the sill: this allows for units to be installed from the interior or exterior. Traditional nail flange attachment is an option with all window and door series.
Options: Grilles; simulated divided lites; trickle vents (to meet Seattle ventilation requirements). Insect screens are optional for all operable units.
