Ply Gem Classic Series Vinyl Windows

PRODUCT INFORMATION

Our Classic Series vinyl windows recreate a traditional wood window profile design without the traditional maintenance. Dual glazed insulated glass units ensure cutting-edge performance for these classically styled windows. 
 
Sliding windows offer a more contemporary look than Single Hung windows. But with its wider frame and equal sight lines, our Classic Slider is equally suited for horizontal styles such as Ranch and Prairie.
 
Classic Series Single Hung Slider Windows
 
With identical sashes, these Single Hung windows offer a balanced view. A slightly wider frame creates a higher profile. Grilles can be added in a variety of patterns to match any architectural style.

Ultraviolet Transmission
The total ultraviolet rays entering through a window, generally responsible for fading; the lower the number, the better the glass
Visible Light Transmission
How much visible light enters through the glass; 100% = all the light gets through, 0% = no light gets through
