- SINGLE HUNG ALUMINUM WINDOWS
The NT & DYC 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 & DYC 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.
offer glass options utilizing high performance tinted and/or low
emissivity (Low-E) glass, and argon gas filling.
All of our NT & DYC 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.
All our Aluminum
replacement windows feature a thermally improved main frame 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.
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
SERIES 8400 - 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
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 reduction of heat and cold
transfer through the edge of the glass, resulting in energy savings and
increased comfort levels.
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, or Almond colors.
Optional features include high performance glass packages, argon gas fill, and full solar screening to help minimize heat gain.
