RevoCell® Custom Shaped Window Features
Fixed windows can be custom-shaped in virtually any form, from arches to sharp corners; if it can be designed, we’ll build it! Architectural windows are great for transoms, sidelites, or together with venting units in bay, bow, or other configurations. With our microcellular PVC frame, they offer a coordinated sightline with our casement and awning windows. With a weather-tight but bright construction and great insulation, our fixed windows are rated Energy Star Most Efficient.
Microcellular PVC construction
Our RevoCell® window frames, brickmoulds, and sashes are insulated with billions of closed microscopic cells for superior energy efficiency. They are fusion-welded as a single unit, impervious to the elements. The microcellular PVC structure has better screw holding power for hardware, and distributes stress better than hollow window frames, for extra durability.
Our RevoCell® custom shaped windows feature a minimalist, slim profile that goes equally well with traditional and contemporary home designs.
4½” fusion-welded frame
Our custom shaped windows come standard on a 4-1/2” deep frame, which is stronger and more durable than the standard 3-1/4” sold elsewhere. The deeper frames give extra dimensional stability and strength. It also allows for a lower sash profiles to maximize the glas surface.
Our RevoCell® multi-lite custom shaped windows feature structurally strong, seamless one-piece frames with integrated cross-mullions, as opposed to the more common modular construction where each lite is a separate window. Our single frame will transfer loads better through the wall, will deflect stronger winds, and have fewer points at risk of water ingress or air leaks. It will also allow for a larger glass surface for more natural light.
Dual and triple-pane insulated glass units
Two or more layers of glass are joined together to create sealed hollow chambers that act as a thermal buffer. This drastically reduces direct heat transfer through the glass, as well as helps prevent condensation and ice build-up. It also helps soundproof the interior, especially in conjunction with a high-quality cellular spacer.
Low-emissivity coated glass
An invisibly thin coating is applied onto one or more of the glass surfaces, reflecting most of the heat in the form of infrared radiation back inside the home during winter and outside during summer, while letting most visible light pass through.
Argon gas filling
The air between the glass panes inside a thermal glass unit is replaced with argon. This inert, odourless gas is heavier than air, reducing convection between the panes. Its lower specific heat capacity reduces direct heat transfer. The argon fill hence reduces heat loss, and offsets water vapour to prevent condensation between the panes.
Ener-Edge® warm-edge spacer
Our insulated glass units use a cellular silicone warm-edge spacer with the lowest thermal conductivity on the market, minimizing heat transfer between the interior and the exterior. It also allows for the natural expansion and compression of glass due to environmental temperature changes without failing the seal between them.
Our RevoCell® window sashes use three continuous seals at the interface with the window frame and mullions. This stops drafts and the associated heat leaks through the window. The thermal glass unit is also sealed to the sash from both the inside and the outside.
PVC-cladded interior wood extension
Our custom shaped windows use an interior wood extension that can be manufactured in any depth. This extension is cladded with maintenance-free PVC, providing a finish that does not need sealing or painting. It also allows for the installation of blinds or other window treatments, and adds to the window strength and durability.
We use the highest-grade PVC powder and fabrication techniques which result in a high-gloss PVC finish. As a result, our custom shaped windows are easier to clean, more durable, and won’t fade or yellow over time.
Integrated brickmould (option)
A brickmould that is part of the window frame creates a superior window assembly. The microcellular PVC construction adds insulation and window strength. It also means less chance of water and air leakage.
Durable standard colours
Our RevoCell® windows come in several standard colours that are engineered during the profile extrusion. Lighter tones are made with cap stock, meaning a layer of tinted PVC covering all exterior-facing surfaces. The darker tones are architectural-grade laminates that are UV reflective and extremely colourfast. Our standard colours are extremely UV and weather-resistant, and won’t peel, flake, or scratch like paint finishes.
