i see on your site that you sell soft-lite. any way to post a picture of the inerior frame like you did with schuco? i went to soft lites site and the pic is'nt big enough. want to see what that design is all about. seems like a hell of a window.

Here is a picture of the Elements.... The two locks double as tilt-in for cleaning mechanisms. It gives it a cleaner look.

looking at the design on the inerior,is it similar to schuco? when you first saw the "elemenst" window,was there a WOW factor with the appearance?
how do your customers respond to Gorells design on the frame?
and thank you,very nice of you to post this kind of stuff for us.

What factor do each of those numbers (.16 .24 .40) refer to?

Is this a double pane?

.16
U-Factor measures the rate of heat transfer and tells you how well the window insulates. The lower the U-Factor, the better the window insulates. U-Factor values generally range from 0.25 to 1.25.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

.24
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) measures the fraction of solar energy admitted and tells you how well the product blocks heat caused by sunlight. The lower the SHGC, the less solar heat the window transmits. SHGC is measured on a scale of 0 to 1; values typically range from 0.25 to 0.80

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

.40
Visible Transmittance (VT) measures the amount of light the window lets through. The higher the VT, the more light you see. VT is measured on a scale of 0 to 1; values generally range from 0.20 to 0.80.

With a u-factor of .16, I am assuming this would have to be a triple pane, correct?

What is the STC rating for that window?

That is a triple pane window and triple pane has no effect on STC. The STC on the window is likely the same that it is in a double pane and potentially less if the double pane is equip with double strength glass.
