Let's talk, QUADRUPLE-PANES! The Zenith Series ZR-9 / 925 quad-pane glazing has foam-filled fiberglass frames maximizing the insulating power to create comfortable, super-efficient homes in all climates, in both the hottest deserts and coldest Arctic locations. Picture this, the ZR-9 picture window is nearly three times more efficient than Energy Star standards.
.
.
Perks to the Series ZR-9:
- Aids in meeting Passive House standards
- NFRC whole-window ratings up to R-9.1 (U-0.11)
- Center-of-glass R-values up to R-14.3 (U-0.07)
- Can decrease the size of the needed HVAC system
- Reach out and let's talk SUPER efficiency!

U-factor / U-value: The ratings generally fall between 0.20 and 1.20, with the higher rating being, say, a single-glazed window with aluminum frames, while a triple-glazed window might get a rating of 0.20 and even lower depending on the gas that used within the glass unit. These days, you can get quad pane glass which can run even lower – into 0.10 +/- U-values.
.
.
The windows that we supply range between 0.20 and 0.10 - classifying them as high-performance.

Have you tried the SIGA Majvest 500 SA (self-adhered) on any of your projects recently? It's a vapor-permeable, 3-ply membrane, with the reverse face fully coated by a pressure-sensitive glue for direct bonding to substrates. The adhesive side of the sheet is protected by a white, siliconized, split-release liner which is removed during installation. Primer-free adhesion to most common building materials, including concrete, plywood, gypsum, and metal.
.
.
Advantages
- Wide 60” roll size, for efficient area coverage in above-grade wall applications
- High adhesive strength at high and low temperatures sticks in all seasons, long-term building value
- Tear-resistant release liner with a time saving 50/50 split for easy removal

Take a look at these smart, high-performance products working together. This client is creating a tight building envelope with their selection of Rockwool for the continuous rigid insulation and Alpen Zenith 625 windows with 3.25 inch frame extenders. .
.
Have you thought about adding frame extenders to your next project? Did you know that Alpen's frame extensions are delivered attached to the window for quick and easy installation plus they create a slightly sloping surface as a drainage plane?
