We’ve all heard the saying, “the devil is in the details,” a colloquialism expressing the importance of attention to and understanding of the details – however seemingly insignificant at first glance. This sentiment definitely rings true for window details. In the world of windows, the options may seem endless and trivial. Take heart though, as not every window is created equal.
Before diving into the function and aesthetic details of Glo fenestration products, let’s discuss architectural window details. Since our windows are European it comes with the assumption of using the metric system as our standard for measurement, which typical of most European window companies. However, we have converted all of our detail sets from metric to imperial for ease of use for architects and builders when planning for window replacement or window installation for a new-build. Your design and building teams will thank us, we promise.
Aesthetically, the quality of our product is both seen and felt thanks to our rigid attention to detail. All our handles are stainless steel or powder-coated aluminum. No cheap plastic crank handles here – we utilize robust materials that stand the test of time. With that, the intentional design of Glo windows and doors meld well with any interior as the handles can easily become a highlighted feature as a stainless-steel handle or a supporting design component, powder-coated to match your window frame. The powder-coated finish is a high-quality and customizable feature that can be seen on not only the window handles but the frames as well. The interior and exterior of your window finish are able to withstand weather, corrosion, and chemicals, ensuring a pristine look for decades. The durability of the powder-coated Glo window frame outperforms other standard paint or liquid processes with ease.
Our windows are not only attractive but boast some of the highest thermal performance standards in the industry. Multiple air-seals, Low-E coating, argon filled glazing, low iron glass in a thermally-broken frame creates an unparalleled window. Created with a double pane or triple pane glazing unit, these windows out-perform most North American fenestration products with u-values from 0.28 to 0.14 ensuring year-round comfort despite variant temperatures. Glo windows provide beauty, durability, and performance for any project.
