Our composite material experiences considerably less expansion/contraction than rigid vinyl. Compozit shrinks between .05% to 1.1% compared to the 2% allowable for composite material, beating the AAMA's benchmark by a healthy margin, while Rigid Vinyl's allowable shrinkage is between 2.4% to 3%, much higher than our Compozit material.
Performer III Compozit Windows features the very best in thermal efficiency technology. The windows are three times more efficient than most companies in maximizing thermal performance, and keeping your home comfortable.
Heat Reflector™ Glass blocks nearly 80% of the sun's heat from entering your home, while letting the light shine through, keeping your home bright while blocking out harmful UV rays. This is accomplished with the 18 microscopic layers located on the inside of the outer pane of glass, and this includes three special layers of silver, while most competitor products use only two.
Each Heat Reflector™ Double Pane System incorporates Argon gas in between double-strength glass to complete the glass pack to help block the transfer of heat better than air while increasing energy-efficiency. Argon also adds protection from the sun's damaging rays, and helps to significantly diminish sound pollution.
The insulation value—also known as the R-factor—per linear inch of a Compozit window frame is 214% better than vinyl windows and significantly better than other frame types. The secret that makes our windows better is our revolutionary EPC insulation, a high-density space-age Compozit material that is intended to keep your home comfortable.
The structural foam is created through a combination of resins, chemical additives, and modifiers. The mix is processed with nitrogen and other blowing agents at an extremely high temperature resting between 400 and 600°F. When the final shape is ready, it is actually made up of millions of tine shapes and bubbles inside that are shaped somewhat like a honeycomb. Though they are compressed, the material actually has an incredibly dense strength and durability not found in vinyl or wood products.
The Performer III Compozit Series pocket window offers the best solution for replacement windows with its sleek and slender 3 ¼ in. frame width. It causes minimal disruption to interior trim or existing casing because it's designed for installation into the pocket of a pre-existing opening.

All Performer III interior hardware comes in three color options—white, beige, or brown—and our hardware package includes the locks, handles, tilt release latches, and vent locks.
Our windows come standard with our amazing Teflon-coated fiberglass TruClear Window screening. This fiberglass screening is puncture resistant and can survive years of rigorous use.

Additionally, you can enjoy the view outside your home without having to deal with the annoying screen being in the way with our transparent TruClear Window screens.
The Performer III Compozit window has a unique tilt mechanism to ensure an airtight design not found in other windows, while allowing both top and bottom sashes to easily tilt in for cleaning. It 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 is also four times stronger than the leading competitors in the industry, helping it last longer and protect from more intense debris and weather. Our Heat Reflector™ Glass package also provides the very best energy rating and savings available.
