Ply Gem Signature Series Aluminum Windows

PRODUCT INFORMATION

With its light colour and fine grain, our wood casement can enhance any room in the house. But it's just as handsome on the outside. The sturdy wood frame is clad in extruded aluminum and coated with a durable painted finish. Awning windows can give a room a studio effect. Hinged at the top, they open outward from the bottom and can be left open without letting moisture in. They're ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, dormers or wherever space is tight. For a contemporary look, combine them with picture windows.

Performance
 
R-Value (centre of glass)
The amount of heat retained by a window; the higher the number, the better the glass
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient
The amount of solar radiation entering a house and registering as heat gain; the lower the number, the less heat gained
   
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
