Alexandria's Window Frames are made of a 100% uPVC Powdered Vinyl Compound. When filler materials are added to the vinyl during production, the frame's integrity is weakened. We only use pure uPVC in order to offer our lifetime warranty on the frame. Once a vinyl extrusion is made, it must be attached to other extrusions to form the frame. The two ways of manufacturing vinyl window frames is mechanical fastening or fusion welding. Mechanical fastening is when the vinyl extrusions are fastened with screws. Mechanically fastened windows are cheaper to produce, and do not last as long as fusion welded frames. At Alexandria, we only offer fusion welded frames. Fusion welding is a process in which the vinyl extrusions are heat welded together, forming a permanent air and water tight seal. Wood and Fiberglass are not able to be fusion welded. When looking for longevity, fusion welded vinyl frames are the frames that last the longest.
We take our fusion welding to the next level with out shadow grooved corners. Of the manufacturers that fusion weld their window frames, many are unable to clean the weld due to the thin nature of their extrusions. With out welds, we shadow groove the corners to leave a clean and even seam every time. We are able to shadow groove the corners because our vinyl extrusions are thicker than other manufactuers.
Alexandria’s Glass is manufactured by Cardinal Glass Industries, one of the largest glass manufacturers in the United States. With two research and development facilities, Cardinal Glass Industries offer only the best industry leading glass technology. With a Dual Lo-E 270 glazing coming standard on all windows offered by Alexandria, we have received a rating of Most Energy Efficient by Energy Star for 2019.
Alexandria’s Glass Thickness plays an important role in your windows longevity and durability. Industry standard glass thickness is 3 millimeters. At Alexandria, we never use glass that is thinner than 4 millimeters, even on our triple pane windows! While other companies offer triple pane windows, very few use 4 millimeter thick glass on all three panes. Often, using a thinner piece of glass in the center is standard. Our dual pane windows have the same overall glass thickness as the industry standard triple pane window!
Alexandria’s Energy Efficiency ratings far surpass the industry standards! All windows are rated on a scale called U-Factor that is used to measure the thermal efficiency of the window unit. The lower the U-Factor, the better the energy efficiency of the window. Energy Star minimum requirements in Michigan are a 0.27 U-Factor or below. With our triple pane windows being rated the Most Energy Efficient Windows by Energy Star for 2019, our U-Factor rating is as low as 0.14!
Alexandria’s Gas Fill is engineered to combat the harshest temperature fluctuations. From our frigid Michigan winters, to our scorching Michigan Summers, your new windows will work to keep you comfortable inside your home all year round. The gas fill between the glass panes is crucial in minimizing the transfer of cold into your home in the winter, and blocking out heat in the summer. Industry standard air fill rates on dual pane windows are 80% argon, and 20% air. At Alexandria, we fill our dual pane windows with 95% argon, and 5% air, to provide the best insulation capabilities. Argon gas is 6 times denser than air, and does a great job blocking out the heat and cold, which are not able to move quickly through dense gas. With our Argon gas fill, we are sure to block out the most heat and cold, saving you money in the long run!
