Spacers

A major component in making your Vinyl Window Designs Window energy efficient and condensation resistant is our choice of high tech warm edge glass spacer systems.

  • TempSmartSpacer System - In order to avoid the confusion created by multiple materials being sold as Superspacer in the marketplace, VWD has introduced the TempSmart™ brand as your guarantee that you are only receiving Edgetech's premium foam silicone material and not Edgetech's organic foam material. Better still, our TempSmart™ system guarantees that your oversize windows are reinforced to maintain structural integrity. This is important because, while foam silicone is very resistant to cold transfer, it lacks the inherent structure of metal spacers!
  • STAINLESS SPACER® - This is a warm edge spacer, invented by PPG. This spacer will reduce condensation, heat loss, and provide clean, graceful lines and aesthetically provide an appealing appearance. Because it is made from low conductive steel, it provides natural structural strength in your window. Additionally, because it is steel, it is the perfect barrier preventing moisture penetration or gas leakage. Best of all, this is our basic spacer at no extra cost to you!

Coloured and Frosted Glass

Alternatives to clear glass in your window can increase the comfort of your home as well as save you money on your heating and cooling bill. Be aware of true but sometimes misleading statements regarding which glass is most appropriate for your use. The truth is in a southern climate, look for glass with the best "U" or "R" value, and in a northern climate look for glass with a balance between a good insulation value and a high SHGC or solar heat gain coefficient.

Coloured and frosted glasses: Bronze, gray, frosted and coloured glasses can offer increased privacy as well as lowered heat gain for interior spaces such as sunrooms that tend to become too hot in summer months. Sycamore Designer Glass offers a unique partial obscurity with a classic leaf-like pattern.

Energy Upgrades

  • Solar Gain LOW E Glass is - The best glass for most applications in a northern climate. It has a very high retention rate of the heat in your home in winter and prevents heat gain in summer. Solar Gain Low E Glass has a higher Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) than other Low E glass designed for southern markets in order to retain the Solar Heat that provides FREE winter heat for the homeowner. Since as much as 95% of your energy expense for heating and cooling combined goes for heating, this glass is more cost effective than other glass without a high SHGC.
  • SOLAR SHIELD LOW E GLASS - Is chosen for uses where cooling costs outweigh heating costs in your energy usage, or where summer discomfort from heat build-up should be an important concern. This is the best glass for most applications in a southern climate. It has a very high reflection rate of the radiant outside heat to prevent heat gain in summer and in winter it still retains radiant heat once you turn on your furnace! Solar Shield has a lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) in order to minimize Solar Heat Gain that results in extra work for your air conditioning unit.
  • Argon Gas filled units reduce your window's conduction and convention of heat. Argon works well with Low E glass to maximize your new window's energy efficiency and performance.
  • Krypton Gas filling works where Argon can't! It is ideal for smaller air spaces created in triple glazing and can be combined with Argon in intermediate size spaces.

Keepsafe Glass

KEEPSAFE™ GLASS - This remarkable glass is actually two sheets of glass permanently bonded to a tough, durable plastic interlayer. KeepSafe™ glass won't shatter like ordinary glass and the resilient interlayer resists repeated blows from common handheld weapons including bricks, hammers, bats, and crowbars. Because the glass must be cut from both sides, glasscutters are virtually useless as a burglary tool. KeepSafe™ glass offers a significant contribution toward protecting your family and irreplaceable valuables.

KeepSafe™ glass is also valuable in reducing sound transmission into your home. The plastic interlayer dampens the transmission of outdoor noise, traffic, overhead aircraft, lawn mowers, power tools, barking dogs and other sources of noise pollution!

The interlayer in KeepSafe™ Glass screens out over 99% of the sun's harmful UV rays © protecting your drapes, carpet, upholstery and wall coverings and preserving your valuable artwork and family photos.

Enviro Colour Coating


New Exterior Coatings for Vinyl Windows combine better performance with environmental responsibility.

Enviro Colour Coatings come with our exclusive "Exterior Colour ten year warranty" which includes undue fade!





Note: Wood Grain as shown is interior only. Enviro Colour Coating is exterior only.





What is so special about this Coating?

Enviro Colour Coating™ offers superior long-term film integrity, colour and gloss retention for vinyl extrusions or other types of vinyl cladding. Enviro Colour Coating™ will give you the confidence of knowing that the finish on your vinyl unit is the best available.

Enviro Colour Coating™ is a proprietary single component and water based coating. It cures to form a protective film that provides a unique combination of toughness, flexibility and durability, resisting the harmful effects of ultraviolet light, pollutants, abrasive agents and acid rain.

Enviro Colour Coating™ contains no harmful chemicals that hurt the environment. It is water based and contains no solvents. Because of its easy to handle qualities, it is a field applicable product.

Why is Enviro Color Coating™ Important?

Vinyl is a thermoplastic resin that is heat sensitive at temperatures greater than 140 F. Above this temperature the vinyl will start to soften and serious warping of an extrusion can occur. This is the primary reason that most vinyl windows are pastel colours since dark colours can result in excessive heat build up in the component.

Selected pigments with heat reflective properties have been used to formulate Enviro Color Coating™. This reduces heat build-up and maintains a low component material temperature that avoids warping. The ability to reduce temperature build-up for dark colours allows manufacturers of vinyl windows to offer a much wider range of colours than could be previously offered.
