Park Avenue Window Collection Honored Nominee for 'Green Award' by Door and Window Manufacturer Magazine
The Park Avenue® Window Collection was named an Honored Nominee in the Window Manufacturer category of Door and Window Manufacturer (DWM) Magazine’s 2010 Green Product Awards. Nominees were selected based on nominations from industry companies, as well as selections from DWM editors who reviewed hundreds of products. When choosing the nominees, judges were asked to evaluate the company’s commitment to overall environmental sustainability, use of third-party verifications, the accuracy of the company’s promotional materials and other factors.
The Park Avenue® Window Collection offers homeowners a Greener ChoiceTM when looking for replacement windows for their home. Park Avenue® Windows feature solid uPVC vinyl construction and fusion-welded, multi-chambered construction to prevent air leakage, water infiltration and energy loss. The window collection’s E3-MAX® Glass is a triple pane glass system combining two lites of Soft-Coat LoE2 glass, and a center lite of annealed float glass. The twin chambers of glass are enhanced with Krypton Gas for superior insulation and enclosed with today’s most advanced Ultimate Warm-Edge Spacer Technology. E3-Max® Glass has received the GreenSpec®-Listed designation by BuildingGreen, Inc., an independent company committed to providing accurate, unbiased, and timely information designed to help building-industry professionals and policy makers improve the environmental performance, and reduce the adverse impacts, of buildings. All of these components combine to make the Park Avenue® Window U-Value rank among the lowest in the industry.
Rick Mendola, Regional Dealer Development Manager for the Park Avenue® Window Collection states, “We are extremely proud to have our window collection recognized by industry colleagues and energy efficient product experts.”
