Double Glazed System (7/8” Overall)
Features a flexible dual durometer seal that hugs the sash glass from both sides, this system also includes a glazing tape applied to the interior side resulting in an unprecedented barrier against air and water penetration.
Triple Glazed (1 3/8” Overall)
Features two ½” airspaces that will dramatically improve the performance of your windows by reducing heat loss and conserving energy, for an even better performance upgrade to Double Low E & Argon.
Argon and Krypton Gas filling

Commercial Glazing Technique
Exterior glass stops, combined with the Double Bond Glazing, are more effective in
maintaining a well-sealed window.
It is a flexible, U-shaped, silicone foam tape product used to wrap around and cushion our center decorative panel. Featuring a vapor barrier backing, the product used in combination with Hot Melt butyl, provides a superior Warm – Edge seal.
Stainless Steel Spacer
This is a warm edge spacer. 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.
