NorthWind Dual-Pane Double Hung Window
|U-Value||Solar Heat Gain (SHGC)||Visual Transmittance (VT)||Condensation Resistance (CR|
Through continued technological advances in window design, we have engineered our windows to meet or exceed NFRC’s stringent test standards without expensive upgrades. Our windows utilize the most advanced thermal insulated glass spacer and take advantage of the insulating properties of a multi-chambered sash and frame design. We utilize scientifically engineered PVC composite reinforcements for strength and durability.
Understanding NFRC Labels
R-5 Rated Performance
For windows with an R-5 rating, choose our Soft Coat Dual Low E 1” insulated triple pane glass with argon gas fill and CCore® reinforcement for strength. Windows with an R-value (resistance) of 5 are among the most energy efficient windows on the market. In comparison, most ENERGY STAR rated windows generally obtain an R-value of 3. Increasing the R-value from 3 to 5, results in an average heat loss reduction of 30 percent to 40 percent.

Duralite® Warm-Edge Spacer
All of our vinyl windows are manufactured with Duralite® is a patented warm-edge spacer. Most window manufacturers use metal spacers to separate the panes in a double-glazed window. Spacers that contain metal conduct heat and cold through the spacer. National Vinyl uses Duralite, an insulating glass edge seal system constructed using a unique Composite Laminating Technology. Duralite creates a create a high-performance durable single seal spacer system.
