Solar Innovations® Architectural Glazing System’s durable, energy-efficient vinyl-composite window systems require minimal maintenance, and repainting is not required. Solar Innovations® versatile vinyl- composite provides end users increased flexibility. Vinyl-composite framing demand is growing from the need for superior window systems in the commercial industry. The uPVC make-up utilized by Solar provides environmental sustainability, durability, unparalleled performance. The framing is moisture resistant will not rust, warp, or rot over time. The vinyl-composite product line also allows for both doors and windows to have matching sightlines.
The vinyl-composite window systems allow for awning, in-swing casement, out-swing casement, tilt slide, and tilt turn operations. When closed, these windows provide outstanding thermal and acoustical performance. Large chambers accommodate for reinforcement inserts for large openings in commercial applications. Multiple locking points are available. Testing performance is available. Complementary swing doors are also available.
Hung Tilt-Turn Windows
One window recently found in the news is the simulated hung window with tilt turn operation. Not long ago, Solar noticed a growing need in the simulated single hung and double hung window market. Historical applications have specific sightlines to maintain due to building codes, as well as changing codes, acoustical requirements, and thermal performance needs. These simulated hung tilt turn windows not only keep the traditional consistency of the building, but provide the superior performance demanded by today’s market.
Vinyl tilt turn windows are common in Europe and are quickly becoming a popular option in the United States. A uPVC vinyl tilt turn window has a dual action; the window tilts inwards like a hopper window, and with the turn of the handle, it opens inwards like a casement window. When the uPVC vinyl tilt turn window is in the hopper position, fresh air can enter the room without requiring the entire window to be left opened. The hopper position also provides additional safety to children and pets, because there is still protection in front of the opening. Specialty vinyl tilt turn configurations are available, and the system can easily be combined with fixed windows. If desired, transoms can be added above a uPVC vinyl tilt turn window.
Solar Innovations® now offers vinyl tilt turn windows with uPVC vinyl framing. These windows will not rot, rust or warp because they are made from uPVC vinyl. Thermal conductivity is also eliminated with a uPVC vinyl frame, meaning the window does not transfer hot and cold temperatures through the framing, creating an energy efficient window.
