Tripane with Argon glass option offers superior insulation and performance
FARGO, N.D. – Aug. 8, 2012 – Integrity Windows and Doors brings its energy efficiency commitment to the next level with the introduction of a tripane glazing option for Wood-Ultrex casements and awnings.
These windows combine Integrity’s exclusive Ultrex material with three panes of glass and argon gas to create the ultimate in performance, beauty and strength. With argon gas added, Integrity’s tripane glass has U-factors of .18 to .20, which means that it has superior insulating properties, keeping heat inside the home to help lower heating bills.
Wood-Ultrex casements and awnings with tripane glass live up to Integrity’s Built to Perform® promise with Design Pressure (DP) ratings of 50. These windows’ tough reputation is cemented by the WDMA’s DP rating, which measures how a window reacts to pressure or external force when closed and locked. The higher the rating, the more the window can withstand things like air and water infiltration, structural pressure and operational force.
Julie Frana, Senior Product Marketing Manager, says, “At Integrity, it’s important for us to be at the top of the industry when it comes to energy efficiency. That’s why our tripane glass with argon is going to be a hit with builders and homeowners alike. It’s a top-notch product option that offers even better energy efficiency and the same great fit and finish as our dual pane Wood-Ultrex casements and awnings.”
The tripane glass option is available on nearly all current casement and awning sizes, including new Special Sizes which are available in 1/64” increments. Wood-Ultrex casements and awnings using tripane glass have all of Integrity’s current design and hardware options, including divided lite options like Simulated Divided Lites (with or without spacer bars), Grilles Between the Glass and the new Simulated Divided Checkrail. And like all Integrity products, Wood-Ultrex casements and awnings with the tripane glass option are delivered to the dealer in an industry-leading 10 days.
