Additional glass layer

Better quality impact windows or doors have an additional glass layer to improve energy efficiency and noise reduction.

 

Argon gas filling

Best quality impact windows or doors have an Argon gas filling of the space between the impact glass and the additional glass layer for† maximum energy efficiency.

 

Framing

Impact windows are available with Aluminum or Vinyl framing.

Aluminum framing is much more durable than Vinyl framing, but on the other hand side Vinyl framing is more energy efficient than Aluminum framing.

A good indication for a better quality is: As thicker the framing as better the window/door

 

Sealing

The sealing between the glass layers and the frame is the most important for the durability and the energy efficiency of the window.
