Longing for an unobstructed view? The answer is a fixed window, or “picture” window, as it’s commonly referred to. Brighten up a stairwell or make it the framework for an unobstructed view, and rest assured that your window is virtually impervious to drafts. Dramatic and stylish, this weathertight, non-operable window solution can be combined with other window types to create bay, bow, and other mixed combinations.
Insulated glass should be considered for energy efficiency and comfort in the home. With a combination of two or more panes of glass, a hermetically-sealed air space between them, insulated glass keeps cold air at bay.
Inert gases, such as argon or krypton, may “fill” the space between panes to improve thermal performance and energy savings.
