Fixed Picture Windows
Fixed or Picture windows are very popular windows and is unimaginable to complete any project without their participation. Their function is limited to allowing light to enter, provide superior climate control, greater security and generous unobstructed views. These windows are available in high and low (slim) profiles and a large variety of shapes and sizes to satisfy the fantasy of the architects and to complement the architecture of your home.
- Maintenance-free vinyl frames constructed from genuine extruded material that will not rot, rust, peel, crack, deform, require paint or retain moisture
- Multi-chambered, multi-cavity, high impact, rigid vinyl extrusion for added insulation and strength
- Smart designed drainage system with sloped sills to prevent water trapping under the insulated glass unit, reducing the possibility of premature seal failure;
- Unique design consisting of 3 rubber weather-stripping providing a solid barrier against air, water and noise
- Engineered for new custom home construction and custom sizes for replacement applications;
- Can be used as a single window or mulled together for window-wall, or joined to any other venting window in a combo unit.
- Warm-edge spacer bar and Low E glass and argon gas filled between two panes of glass for superior energy efficiency, reduced condensation that create an effective thermal barrier to help reduce the heat loss through the window;
- Various types of grills and grill patterns enabling you to choose a style that complements the beautiful architecture of your home;
- These windows called often as Picture Windows are recommended for areas where sunlight and security are more important than ventilation. Advantages: different shapes to the point that can satisfy any architect’s fantasy, multitude of dimensions, high thermal efficiency, little or no maintenance, very durable and secure, low cost. When this window is chosen extreme consideration should be given to health and safety matters. Because the window cannot be opened it does not provide ventilation nor does it provide a possibility of escape in the case of an emergency. This window should therefore be combined with other operable windows. Because of the low cost it would have been a mistake to block-off means of escape and ventilation by choosing this option extensively.
