It is important that window manufacturers develop products with attention to detail. The small things—condensation, cleaning, sneaky drafts, edges of the window—are all critical components that affect a window’s efficiency, attractiveness and ease of operation. Alside, with over 50 years of experience pleasing customers, offers just this level of attention to detail.
Alside realizes that glass is one of the most critical components of a window’s construction. Thus, they offer options for customizing and enhancing a window’s appearance by means of glass options. These options also improve a window’s efficiency, offer additional protection and conserve energy.
Tired of cleaning windows? Why not buy windows that actually clean themselves? Though it sounds fanciful, Alside’s SunClean™ technology actually uses the sun’s rays to preserve clean-free, spot-free and streak-free windows all the time. The technology uses a special coating that helps water spread when it comes into contact with the window. This prevents water from beading up on windows as it normally does. When water spreads across the surface if the window, it keeps the dirt from concentrating into spots. The second component of the SunClean technology uses UV rays from the sun to break down dirt and decompose organic matter, which then fall away from the window.
Energy Efficient Glass Packages
Windows, as the thinnest part of your home’s walls, are at the highest risk for temperature and weather infiltration. Choosing windows with built-in features for energy efficiency is a choice that pays for itself. All of Alside’s energy efficient options are Energy Star qualified.
Low-E Glass, which stands for low-emissivity, is an energy-efficient glass style that uses Solarban 60 and additional technology to ensure a safe and efficient manner of protecting your home from the cold or the heat of the outdoors. Low-E glass actually serves to block the heat of sun’s rays on the outside and protect the warmth of your furnace’s heat from escaping on the inside.
