What Makes Ply Gem Different?
Warm Edge Technology
The Warm Edge glass spacer system diminishes thermal transfer around the edges by using a proprietary U-shaped channel to isolate glass panes and disturb the natural flow of heat to cold. Warm Edge is one continuous piece creating a stronger, more energy-efficient insulated glass unit. I also flexes with glass swelling and contracting to ensure a strong seal for the life of the window.
Argon Gas Fill
A safe and naturally occurring gas that is forty-percent heavier than air. Paired with Low-E glass, argon provides better insulation than other solutions because airflow is restricted by the heavy gas. Argon is non-toxic and presents no human health or environmental concerns. Ply Gem offers gas-filled insulated units in a number of products including windows and patio doors.
Energy Package MAX (EPMAX) combines the HP3MAX glass package with R-Core in the sash and frame. R-Core is a patented process utilizing pre-formed polyurethane insulation. R-Core provides additional insulating qualities to the window unit for improved thermal performance. Interforce II fiberglass reinforcement is placed in the meeting rails of Premium Series double hung and sliding windows.
The vinyl mainframes of Ply Gem R-5 Series windows are filled with patented R-Core insulation, which is the same type used in many refrigerator and freezer doors. It inhibits voids and settling resulting in even distribution of the maximum insulating barrier. R-5 Series windows with the Energy Package upgrade feature R-Core in both the frame and sash for the ultimate in thermal performance.
Our HP3MAX glass package is a triple pane unit that combines three lites of Low-E with an interior glass substrate, two chambers of argon gas fill and Warm Edge spacer. Windows with the HP3MAX glass system are among the most thermally-efficient windows you can buy today.
