Unlike other window materials, fiberglass has virtually zero thermal expansion and contraction. In fact, the rate at which fiberglass expands and contracts is almost the same as glass, meaning it makes the perfect window frame material. Low expansion and contraction is vital to maintain a tighter seal against the elements and prevent air leaks. Fiberglass ensures a true fit that lasts for decades.
Especially when compared to wood, fiberglass windows are a much more durable option. The material is resistant to harsh weather, including the beating sun, pounding hail, high humidity, dry conditions, gale-force winds and anything else Mother Nature can whip up. Fiberglass is praised for its durability under pressure and will never rust, rot, crack, warp, split or dent. This means it will never stop acting as an airtight seal against the elements.
Fiberglass itself has low thermal conductivity. This means it acts as a natural insulator, greatly slowing the transfer of heat in and out of your home. Plus, fiberglass is often hollowed out and filled with foam insulation to further increase its insulating capabilities.
Window frames are a very important factor in blocking heat transfer and preventing air leaks, but the glass also plays a big role in determining a window’s energy efficiency. EnduraShield fiberglass windows are outfitted with some of today’s most advanced technologies. These include:
