Many people ask whether the upgrade to foam filled windows is worth it. Well, it is. The windows provide extensive benefits although they come at a higher costs compared to the other windows. With a hollow left frame, a right one filled with foam and units having a glazing insulation, the windows provide a higher thermal efficiency over the hollow frames as well as sound efficiency. Besides all this, the glass comes with a high level efficiency courtesy of this insulation and foam filling not forgetting the beautiful corners that are welded to precision.
These two windows are the same except for what is inside the vinyl frames. The frame on the left is hollow, while the frame on the right is filled with insulating foam. The units have the same insulated glazing unit, a superwindow with R-9 center of glass. The hollow window frame allows air to circulate inside the frame; this convective effect is observed by noticing the frame temperatures are cooler at the bottom than at the top. The foam-filled window doesn’t show this effect. These windows are being cooled on the back side with wind at -15°C (5°F)
Increasing Thermal Efficiency
Foam insulated window frames, give a higher thermal efficiency over hallow frames, when cured within the foam millions of small air pockets are created, significantly improving, thermal, and sound efficiency.
For years people use polyurethane foam for numerous thermal applications, today polyurethane foam can be found in Steel and fiberglass doors, walls, attic insulation, pretty much anywhere an airspace needs insulation. Panes Window Manufacturing uses only USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) certified organic foam, safe, odorless, and highest performance available on the market today.
1. Organic Foam
USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) Certified polyurethane foam, ensures safe and toxins free insulation, while improving the overall thermal performance of the window.
2. Warm-Edge Spacer
Our glass has the latest Warm edge Spacer technology on the market today, using non-conductive, energy efficient materials, and dual sealant, ensuring highest thermal performance, and unparalleled longevity.
3. Highest Glass Efficiency
When combined with Triple Pane Low-E, Argon glass pack, the window meets and accedes the highest thermal efficiency set by Energy Star.
4. Precision Welded Corners
We fusion weld our UPVC window frame and sash 1/4″ on each side, at 240° Celsius, creating a strong and durable bond, making our window last longer.
