Energy Efficiency & Savings
Energy Star Performance
As Energy Star Partners, all our window styles meet Energy Star. To reach Energy Star Ratings, the thermal efficiency is built right into the window: no foam, no krypton gas or triple glazing is necessary. Choose our Soft Coat Low E 3/4” insulated dual pane glass with argon gas fill. Ccore®, for structural reinforcement and strength in addition to being thermally efficient. Rating results may vary by window style:
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.

The TrustGard is a professionally crafted double hung combining the beauty of a classical design window with the performance to meet or exceed today’s tough energy standards. Built from only the ﬁnest materials the TrustGard double hung with an all welded fully weather stripped sash and 3/4” insulated glass this window will exceed the expectations of the most discriminating homeowner. All TrustGard double hung windows tilt in for easy and safe interior cleaning
This window is perfect for use in foundations to allow some light and ventilation into a basement. Hoppers are one of the more cost eﬀective windows used for this purpose. Basement Hoppers hinge from the bottom and tilt into the home for ventilation.
Awnings are the cousin to casements as they resemble one but rather than having the hinge on the side, the hinge is on the top. Like the casement they are operated by use of a crank mechanism which projects the sash out. Awnings are a great way to allow for ventilation while at the same time providing protection from light rain should you forget to close the window.
The TrustGard casement can be made from one (1) to ﬁve (5) wide to meet your project requirements. Multi-wide casements are standard with side vents but can be customized as needed to have all, some or no operators. Designed for easy use, one latch unlocks the entire sash. After unlocking the multi-point locking system your TrustGard casement will operate smoothly regardless of whether you are cranking them out for ventilation or in for a tight seal.
Our TrustGard picture window is precisely built to your needs and speciﬁcations. Whether between a set of double hung’s or over a garage door your picture window is built with strength and performance in mind. Stand alone or a part of a set the TrustGard picture windows will enhance the décor of any new construction project.
2 - 3 Lite Slider
Sliding windows are a superb way to allow the most light and ventilation into a home. Sliders go well in contemporary home designs and are a favorite for enclosed porches as well as walk out basements. When the sash is open sliders provide top to bottom air ﬂow which is great for cross ventilation. The three lite conﬁguration can be manufactured in 1/3 equal lite or 1/4-1/2-1/4 for greater ﬂexibility to meet your projects need.
Mulling windows is a function of joining multiple windows together. They can be mulled horizontally or vertically dependent upon the opening the window unit needs to ﬁll. Styles where you see multiple windows put together can be; 2 or more windows are joined side by side such as two double hung mulled on either side of a picture window. This look is common on the fronts of many houses. Another is when you stack a window on top of another. This could be a double hung or casement with a transom above or a circle top above. This look is very common in homes featuring either vaulted or 9’+ ceiling height.
T-Mullion - Our standard factory mulling system
The T-Mull is our standard mullion system when factory mulling is requested. This system ties multiple windows together with one master frame. This is by far the strongest mullion system for residential windows mulled side by side. Available in 2 or 3 wide up to a maximum width of 116”. it can be; all double hung, double hung/picture window/ double hung, all casement, or all awning. This system is also referred to as uniframe construction.
1/2” Structural Mullion with steel reinforcement.
The two part mullion can also be sleeved with structural steel. Either mullion when needed gives you that extra support necessary to meet the most stringent requirements or overall unit is over 116”.
1/2” Mullion - With or without wood reinforcement
This is used when factory mulling new construction picture windows to double hung and can feature a wood reinforcement for structural rigidity when the size requires.
1/2” Structural Mullion without steel reinforcement.
This is used when the window size dictates a mullion that requires extra support. This can come in the form of the 2 part mullion with no reinforcement
