What Makes The Del Mar Different
In a word, features. We don’t just mean added colors, we’re talking about features that most other window companies don’t even offer or, if they do, they’re upgrades that you’re going to pay a premium for. Like what, you ask?
- Foam-filled frame
- Fiberglass reinforced meeting rail
- Extruded aluminum screen frame
- Sound-reducing offset glass
- Flood-filled argon glass units
The foam serves to reduce the transmission of both sound and heat so you end up with a quieter, more energy-efficient, window.
Flood-Filled Glass Units
Very often glass units are filled with argon gas to improve their thermal efficiency. Most window makers accomplish this by assembling the glass unit, poking a hole in the spacer, and inserting a needle that pumps argon gas into the unit. Once filled the needle is removed and the hole is sealed. Anlin has their glass units built by Cardinal Glass where they use flood-fill technology. With flood-fill, the units are assembled inside a chamber that is completely filled with argon gas. This way you get a glass unit that is at least 90% argon-filled without having penetrations in the seal which could be points of failure down the road.
Reinforcing the meeting rail is standard in Anlin windows. The reinforcement provides more structural integrity and security by providing something to screw into besides the vinyl frame. The Del Mar line takes it a step further by using fiberglass which is lighter and less conductive than the typical metal used.
Extruded Aluminum Screen Frame
This is a screen like you’ve never seen before. While most windows use flimsy screens that are fine up until we need to remove them for cleaning, then they kink, bend, and fall apart. The Anlin screen frame uses extrusions more robust than some window frames. They are built to last.
Sound is transmitted through windows by the vibration sound waves. By using pieces of glass that differ in thickness, in this case, 1/8″ and 3/18th”, the panes vibrate at different frequencies so some of the soundwaves get deadened in the process.
Cardinal NEAT+ Glass
For a full breakdown of how NEAT+ Glass works have a look at this. In short, it makes the glass 40% less attractive to dust so it gets less dirty and stays cleaner longer than standard glass.
