Choosing Vinyl

When it comes to windows and doors, vinyl is an all-around excellent choice. Unlike wood, vinyl windows and doors will never rot or require endless repainting. And unlike aluminum, vinyl windows and doors will never pit or flake. Simonton vinyl windows and doors are made from the highest quality vinyl and require almost no maintenance. In fact, an occasional washing will keep them looking like new for years. Plus, they offer increased comfort and lower utility bills, provide headache-free operation and add value to your home. You can’t get much better than that.

  • Increased Comfort  Simonton’s vinyl windows and doors offer excellent thermal performance for year-round comfort and to help lower utility bills.
  • Easy Operation  Our windows and doors open and close easily for maximum performance with minimum effort.
  • Weatherability  The premium vinyl used in Simonton windows and doors can stand up to extreme weather conditions year after year.
  • Energy Efficiency  Vinyl is an effective insulator. Our vinyl profiles are specially designed to work with advanced glass packages for optimum energy efficiency.
  • Low Maintenance  The color of the vinyl is integrated throughout, so frames and sash will never require painting, and they resist pollution, salt spray and dirt.
  • Value  Not only do Simonton windows and doors help to lower home utility bills, they also add value to your home.

Testing shows that vinyl window and doors are comparable to wood products in thermal efficiency.

Simonton Windows® offers a variety of optional glass packages that combine the most effective features and advanced designs to achieve truly impressive year-round thermal performance and energy savings. Choose the right glass package for your home and begin to reap the benefits of an ultra energy-efficient window and door.

Insulating Glass Unit

Dual-pane windows consist of two pieces of glass with air or gas between the two panes to create a sealed insulating glass unit. Dual-pane insulating glass units can come in 3/4", 7/8" or 1" widths.

Triple-pane glass features a single-strength pane of glass surrounded by two double-strength panes 
which creates a 1" insulating glass unit.

Impact-resistant laminated glass consists of a durable interlayer sandwiched between two layers of glass that offers increased safety, sound control, UV protection and energy effciency.

Low E Coated Glass
Low E coatings reflect infrared light keeping heat inside in the winter and outside in the summer.  It can also reduce fading of carpet, artwork and photos by helping block damaging ultraviolet rays.

Utilizing a transparent metallic oxide coating, ProSolar® soft coat Low E glass helps maintain a consistent inside temperature for year-round comfort.  

LoĒ³-366® is an advanced, spectrally selective glass that offers the ultimate in solar heat control, fading protection, visibility and energy 
savings. The 12-layer patented formula features three layers of silver to provide maximum insulation.

 

Gas Fill
Odorless, colorless non-toxic gases can be placed in the insulating glass unit and provide greater insulation than regular air.

This non-toxic gas is six times denser than air. When used to replace air between glass panes in insulating glass units, it helps reduce temperature transfer.

Even denser than Argon gas, Krypton gas maximizes energy efficiency and reduces temperature transfer even further.

 

Spacer Systems
A spacer system keeps a window and door’s glass panes the correct distant apart and is designed to reduce heat transfer at the edge of the insulating glass unit.

The Intercept® spacer system offers a U-channel design that keeps glass warmer and flexes and contracts for reduced seal failure.

The Supercept™ spacer utilizes the U-channel design, but is made of a stainless steel alloy that offers increased durability and thermal efficiency.

The non-metallic foam Super Spacer® is non-conductive and increases energy efficiency by helping provide a tight seal.
