If you are looking for safe, efficient windows that are simple to maintain, choose the Cambridge Doors and Windows experts to create and install aluminum windows for your home. These windows are also perfect for individuals who are looking to save on energy costs but that will also protect your home from distinct weather conditions. Below are the specifications of the different types of aluminum windows that we offer.
Single Hung Aluminium Windows
Our thermally improved single-hung window has been designed and laboratory tested to exceed window industry standards. Air infiltration, a major source of energy loss in windows, must not exceed the ASTM:E 283-91 standard, which allows air infiltration of .30 CFM/Ft2. The NT single-hung achieved a test rating of .01, a rating 30 times tighter than required. Our window also passed 7 different tests for resistance to forced entry.
Additionally, we offer glass options utilizing high performance tinted and/or low emissivity Cardinal 366 (Low-E) glass, and argon gas filling.
Many of our Aluminum windows are backed by a limited lifetime warranty on our components. Copies of our warranty are available upon request.
The sash on the single-hung tilts inward for easy cleaning, and the screen removes to the inside for easy access to the top sash. A safety lock on the tilt latch helps prevent children from inadvertently tilting the sash.
Our Aluminum replacement windows feature a thermally improved mainframe and sash. This is a special polyurethane barrier that separates the indoor and outdoor surfaces to dramatically reduce heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer.
Our interlock system locks the sash to the meeting rail for added security and to help prevent air infiltration from high winds.
We utilize an aluminum glazing bead in place of the common plastic glazing beads. This prevents cracking and warping from the sun's UV rays. Also, our glazing bead is on the interior of the window, which prevents the glass from being removed from the outside, an important security feature.
Premium performance weatherstripping with mylar fin barrier, on two surfaces of the sash stiles, combined with two vinyl compression bulb seals under the bottom of the sash and a combination of weatherstripping and interlock at the top of the sash gives double protection against wind, dust, and noise pollution.
Double Hung Aluminum Windows
Like our single-hung series, our thermally-improved double-hung is designed to provide consumers with the best features in energy efficiency, security, low maintenance, and durability to withstand the harshest of summers and the coldest of winters. Manufactured with heavy gauge frame and sash members (over 20% thicker than most builder-grade windows) along with high-density pile weatherstripping and 7/8" insulated glass, this window should be the last window you purchase for your home.
Both sashes tilt in for safe and convenient cleaning from inside your home. Our safety tilt latch can help prevent children from inadvertently tilting the sash in.
The two sashes interlock at the center of the window, providing a tighter seal and added security.
Our insulated glass utilizes the spacer technologies that aid in the reduction of heat and cold transfer through the edge of the glass, resulting in energy savings and increased comfort levels.
Wrap-around glazing around the perimeter of the glass provides a seal between the glass and the sash frame to block out air and water infiltration. This also allows for easier glass replacement in the event of glass breakage.
The aluminum extrusions have an electrostatic baked-on paint finish for a tough, durable finish in White, Bronze, Black, or Almond colors.
Optional features include high-performance glass packages, argon gas fill, and full solar screening to help minimize heat gain.
