Picture or fixed vinyl windows are the most basic windows we manufacture. Usually, these windows are rectangular shaped and made for the simple function of letting light in. We can craft your windows to your exact specifications. Take your customization a step further by adding our glass and grid options for a highly personalized look.
Our standard high-performance Low-E insulating glass lowers energy costs, helps homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, reducing the fading of interior furnishings and condensation. It also delivers greater visible light transmittance than tinted glass.
Add architectural interest to your windows with our divided lite options. These options include simulated divided lites (SDL) for an authentic look. They feature grilles that are permanently attached to both the interior and exterior glass and optional shadow bars that are placed between the two panes of insulating glass to provide design detail.
Grilles are available in 7/8″ widths in several grille patterns. These grilles are available in the color that matches the exterior color of the window you choose.
Laminated glass is a type of safety glass that holds together when shattered. In the event of breaking, it is held in place by an interlayer, typically of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), between its two or more layers of glass. The interlayer keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken, and its high strength prevents the glass from breaking up into large sharp pieces. This produces a characteristic “spider web” cracking pattern when the impact is not enough to completely pierce the glass. Laminated glass is normally used when there is a possibility of human impact or where the glass could fall.
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that has increased strength and will usually shatter in small, rounded grains instead of jagged shards when broken. It is used when strength, thermal resistance and safety are important considerations. In residential applications it’s mainly found in bathrooms, patio doors and fixed lites adjacent to doors.
Obscure glass is used primarily to obscure views while still allowing in light. These glass options are typically used in bathrooms and other rooms where privacy and light are desired.
|Delta Obscure Glass (Cardinal – Delta frost) is a moderately obscure glass with raised lines that mimic the look of cracked ice on a frozen surface.|
|Arctic Obscure Glass (Cardinal – Arctic #42 Clear) is an obscure glass with moderate privacy and a non directional pattern of raised opaque ice like and stone like distortions.|
|Niagara Obscure Glass (Cardinal – Rain) is a directional pattern that gives the appearance of a waterfall.|
|Pinhead Obscure Glass (Cardinal Pinhead P516) is the most common and economical option.|
|Narrow Reed (Cardinal Narrow Reed) glass offers an obscured view with modern architectural appeal. This style is great for kitchens, laundry rooms, offices and any room where a stylish touch and light are wanted, but not full visibility.|
