Energy Compliance Answers
Proprietary Snapshot software provides detailed NFRC energy reports on every quote.
Team of engineers trained and certified to perform a thermal envelope analysis specific to the exact windows and doors on each quote. This reveals the true thermal performance characteristics of the window and door package.
New designs and re-designs incorporate “strut” technology (Series 4070-T, 450-T, 4800-T, 3070-T, 3600-T, 3900-T, 3200-T, and 4400-T)
Struts allow more attractive and sleeker shapes than poured in place thermal material.
