Triple-pane windows deliver high-performance results for commercial buildings
High-performance windows are entering the main stream market as builders look for help to meet tougher energy codes.
Energy efficient windows should be part of every new construction or retrofit project, because in the majority of cases, they remain the weakest link of the building envelope, said Aurimas Sabulis, managing director of Intus Windows.
At the 2015 Greenbuild Expo, Sabulis reviewed some of the performance features of Intus Window's triple pane, argon-filled, thermal break construction.
Commercial builders are coming to value the benefits of high-performance windows in addition to energy savings, Sabulis said.
Intus products are distributed in more than 40 states. For the past 21 years, the company has manufactured and installed more than 800,000 windows and doors worldwide, with main export markets in Scandinavia and Europe.
The company offers three triple-pane product lines: wood, aluminum and UPVC. Each line comes in variety of styles, performance parameters, and configurations.
A typical dual-pane window has an R-Value of R2 to R3, Sabulis said. Triple-pane Intus Windows products have an average R-Value of R7 to R8. Improved thermal efficiency with extreme air tightness increases overall efficiency and helps to reduce energy bills. Most importantly, he said, these energy saving windows are truly affordable.
