Heat Reflector™ Glass Package
Performer III Compozit Windows feature the very best in thermal efficiency technology, three times more than most companies, to maximize thermal performance, and keep your home comfortable.
Heat Reflector™ Glass blocks about 80% of the sun’s heat from entering your home while letting the light shine through. We are able to accomplish this with 18 microscopic layers on the inside of the outer pane of glass, and this includes three special layers of silver, while most others use two. Keeping your home bright, while blocking harmful UV rays.
Each Heat Reflector™ Double Pane System also incorporates Argon gas in between double-strength glass to complete the glass pack. Argon, a safe naturally occurring gas, helps to block the transfer of heat better than air while increasing energy-efﬁciency, adding protection from the sun’s damaging rays, and helping to deaden sound.
Expanded Compozit Polymers
The R-factor (insulation value) per linear inch of a Compozit window frame is 214% better than vinyl windows and significantly better than other frame types. The secret is our revolutionary EPC insulation – a high-density space-age Compozit material, that is intended to keep your home comfortable.
This structural foam is a combination of resins, chemical additives, and modifiers. This mix is processed with nitrogen and other physical and chemical blowing agents at a temperature between 400° – 600 °F. When the final shape is extruded, it actually has millions of tiny shapes and bubbles inside. These closed cells are shaped like honeycombs. Compressed as they are, the material has an awesome strength and durability that nether vinyl nor wood possess.
The Ideal Replacement Window
The Performer III Compozit Series pocket window is the perfect solution for replacement windows with its 3 1/4 inch frame width. Designed for installation into the pocket of an existing opening, it causes minimal disruption to interior trim or existing casing. The pocket-style frame allows homeowners to upgrade the performance of their old windows without sacrificing the aesthetics and architecture of their original windows and trim work.
All Performer III interior hardware comes in three color options. Choose either white, beige or brown to compliment your windows color and design. This hardware package includes the locks, handles, tilt release latches, and vent locks.
Designed to handle rigourous use, our windows come standard with our puncture resistant teflon-coated fiberglass screening. The TRUCLEAR Window Screen is standard on all Performer III Series windows. The latest technology in screens, TruClear Window Screens are nearly invisible with better visibility and improved airflow over standard fiberglass screening. With TruClear screens, enjoy the view without noticing the screen.
Types of Performer III Windows
Double Hung Windows
The Performer III Compozit window has been engineered to provide great looks, incredible energy saving design features and ease of operation and cleaning. The unique tilt mechanism ensures an airtight design not found in other windows, while allowing both top and bottom sashes to easily tilt in for cleaning. The Performer III Series also features equal sight lines in both top and bottom sashes, providing a cleaner, more open look. You can choose the standard half screen in this series, with a full screen option also available.
The frame design being four times stronger than standard rigid wall vinyl holds screws better than vinyl and pine – vinyl windows need metal stiffeners to hold hardware and keep the frame from warping – metal is a conductor of heat and cold, making other frames less energy efficient compared to the Compozit design.
Using our Heat Reflector™ Glass package provides the very best energy rating and savings available.
Inswing Awning Windows
When replacing the windows in your home, it’s very important to have choices. The unique Performer III Compozit Inswing Awning Window is a specially designed awning window making it easier to reach when opening. It’s built to allow for adequate ventilation and every window designed with the same energysaving specifications as all our Performer III Compozit Window Systems. Outswing awning windows are also available.
Bay & Bow Windows
These windows give your home a custom designer look and feel, plus add extra space and dimension to any room without the expense of traditional room additions. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without paying to heat and cool it! What a great way to create a focal point in a room.
Swing & Clean Slider Windows
You will effortlessly glide each sash on a unique T track that eliminates wheels and unsightly brass marks, innovative engineering to eliminate the problems associated with older slider systems. Using the special sash levers allows for easy pivoting and makes cleaning something that can be done from inside of the home. With the full window screen, both window sashes pivot inside for easy cleaning.
Give yourself the best of both worlds… fresh air and improved security with multipoint operational hardware. Casements are available with either a 90° hinge for maximum ventilation that also meets building code egress requirements or the standard hinge that makes cleaning inside and out a breeze.
