#1 Post by Grayson73 »

Does anyone know whether the Ideal Platinum 3000 or the Ideal Majestic is their best window?

Better in what ways?
Are you DIY?
If not maybe ask your installer.
Where is the project located and waht are the specs?

Installer is saying they are the same price, so I'm trying to decide which is better.

They say the Majestic is:
U-Factor SHGC VT AL CR
0.27 0.28 0.51 0.02 54

Platinum 3000:
U-Factor SHGC VT AL CR
0.22 0.20 0.44 0.02

I guess I should call the manufacturer to ask.

i like the Majestic a tad better than the platinum as i think its a little nicer looking. my installers like the majestic alot, they feel its very solid and installs nicely. i also like the sill wall better on Majestic although the platinum is still a good offering.

I was told by an Ideal employee that "Both of our Majestic and Platinum Windows series windows are sister products, and both test exactly the same These are both Chelsea Extrusions, and have a .02 air infiltration number." "All specs are the same."

Just because you claim someone said they are “ sister products” doesnt mean one isnt a little nicer than the other.
The majestic is a little nicer and i like the sill wall design better.
