Super Saver Glass

Cardinal LoĒ³-366® glass is the ultimate performance glass. It just might make all other low-e glass obsolete.

 

LoĒ³-366 delivers the ideal balance of solar control and high visibility. And it provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings. It’s also the one glass you can use to be compliant in every ENERGY STAR zone – in a double-pane window. Couple it with LoĒ-i89®, and you’re compliant in the North. Its low SHGC makes it compliant throughout the rest of the country as well. It’s the perfect glass wherever you live.

When the temperature soars, ordinary window glass just can’t handle the heat. And tinted glass spoils the view. Cardinal LoĒ³-366, however, has been specially formulated to reject the sun’s heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps more heat out. So your home stays cool and comfortable. Our patented LoĒ³-366 coating provides the ultimate in performance of all our LoĒ products.

 

What’s more, LoĒ³-366 provides exceptional fading protection as well. It blocks 95% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays (a leading cause of fading), so it will help your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall coverings stay beautiful for years to come. These windows with exceptional performance are available for residential and commercial projects.

Structure

1 3/8 TRIPLE GLAZE

Welda has once again raised the bar with our re-engineered 1 3/8 Triple Glaze Window, the highest standard in triple glaze windows. The Cardinal sealed unit can achieve an industry record of R-9.4 R-Value. The 1 3/8 Triple Glaze Window is built for any climate keeping your home warm in the harshest of winters and cool in the hottest of summers. the 1 3/8 Triple Glaze Window’s frame is specifically engineered to handle the extra weight load of triple glaze sealed unit by having load bearing areas reinforced with thicker profile walls and fiberglass inserts.

Premium Vinyl Construction

1
Welda’s Super Saver Series is constructed from the highest: quality, unplasticized, lead-free PVC, expertly compounded and extruded directly from a 100% pure powder. Impact tested constantly, these windows set the new standard. They are UV resistant and will not fade, discolour, warp, crack or peel. Welda ensures chat virtually 100% of waste material used in fabrication is recycled for use in non-window products.

2. CARDINAL I.G. (Insulated Glass)

2
The desiccant filled warm edge spacer has patented infrared applied white polyester interface for the greatest thermal efficiency. Dual sealed with PIB and high modulus silicone. The most reliable sealed unit in the world.

Acrylic Glazing Technology

This new standard ASTM approved acrylic system is found only in higher quality windows. With no unattractive rubber strips all over the window, advanced technology securely bonds the Cardinal I.G. sealed unit to the sash. Aside from a far more attractive look inside and out, common glass slippage and sash pull-off problems with regular vinyl windows are a thing of the past. With no rubber strips exposed to the sun’s destructive UV rays, leak proof performance is guaranteed for life. The new and highest standard in glazing technology.

Insulation

ETI…WHAT’S THAT?

Have you ever heard about ETI? If not, you must absolutely read this blog!

Our Engineered Thermal Insulation (ETI) foam system combines the performance of engineered rigid insulating foam bars with empty air space to achieve maximum thermal insulation. In other words, it consists of a specialized foam piece that is inserted in the window frame to achieve better insulation.

PROOF POSITIVE, ETI PERFORMS!

We have tested and compared different casement windows with Argon gas and LoE 180 to see how they perform in terms of energy efficiency because as you know, our Canadian winters are cold! One of our main goals at Vinylbilt is to make sure our windows are optimized for our climate. Some of the windows we tested didn’t have any foam, some had spray foam (usually used by competition) and some had ETI System. You can see the complete results in the following chart but in summary, the ETI System has achieved the best results overall.

SEVERAL BENEFITS

There are many benefits to using this insulation technique. ETI foam improves the window’s Energy Performance Rating by up to 4%, a substantial savings on your heating bill! Also, by reducing heat and cold transfer through the window sash and frame, ETI foam helps to reduce condensation on the glass surface which improves the air quality inside your home. Furthermore, it is an eco-friendly product because ETI foam is recyclable and does not release harmful chemicals into the environment.

WHERE DOES THE ETI FOAM GO?

ETI foam bars are inserted into the larger window cavities and maximum thermal insulation is achieved when it is used in combination with empty air space.

ALWAYS WORKING TO ENHANCE OUR PRODUCTS!

Not only does our ETI system increase the energy efficiency and the quality of our windows here at Vinylbilt, but our Research and Development team has recently made innovations to our ETI technology that further enhance the results our windows achieve. Thanks to specific improvements in the ETI installation process, our ratings are even better than before! Indeed, we can now have double glazed casement and awning windows that perform as well as some triple glazed windows.
