The closed back fiberglass frame was designed for triple pane fiberglass windows and allows for larger units to be more durable and allow for smoother operation. The frame takes most of the stress off the hardware and therefore the importance of having a strong fiberglass frame is crucial.We use fiberglass components Vs PVC.
Others will supply PVC components for the glass stop, connectors and rails calling them non structural components.Specially Designed Brickmould Vs Standard Stock
Our brickmould is designed to fit in the universal grove on our fiberglass windows and doors therefore eliminating the need for caulking between the two products. Others will use a brickmould that does not fit into a grove so that they can use it on all of their window lines. Caulking will eventually crack and allow water to penetrate between the frame and brickmould causing damage to the interior. Exposed caulking also discolors and become unsightly against the bright fiberglass window and door.Patented Nylon Corner Keys Vs Stapled or Plastic
Our nylon corners keys are uniquely designed to hold the corners tight with stainless steel screws. Marine grade silicone is applied to the inside corners and then screwed tight and the excess silicone removed.Evotec Paint Vs Regular Standard
We use an Evotec paint that has a higher UV protection over Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore. The paint is a higher grade Arcythane Aqua 528 intermix with maximum hardness and durability.
Fibertec fabricates our own sealed units and therefore has the advantage of controlling material flow and quality assurance. We use a premium super spacer between the panes of glass. Fibertec's sealant backing to our units have been proven to provide higher argon retention capabilities and stronger adhesion to glass over the regular conventional sealant used by other companies.
Fibertec uses Truth encore foldaway hardware and truth maxim hinge with a load capacity of 120lbs for our fiberglass windows and doors. Our hinge pivots directly on the fiberglass frame where others extend out from the frame and stress the hinge and restrict operation.
Fibertec has three weather strips with the primary and secondary gasket made from santroprene rubber rather than PVC. Santroprene provides longevity and durability with zero shrinkage over time. It also allows the gasket to reshape to its original form rather than flattening off. The third gasket is a brushed fin which stops air and wind but allows water that may have entered the unit when opened to escape. The gaskets we use are continuous as our frames are drained through the bottom of the sash.
