Fill and Retention Rate – Not All Windows Are Created Equal

Most people shopping for new windows are aware that high quality replacement windows on the market today come with an inert gas filling to help with the window’s insulating properties. What most people aren’t aware of, is that the construction of your window can affect the performance of the gas filling over time. UniShield windows featuring SuperSpacer technology from Universal Windows Direct do not suffer from these inherent defects.

Industry Average Insulated Glass Package

Windows constructed utilizing metal spacers do not hold a seal as well as SuperSpacer technology. This allows the gas filling inside of the window to leak out over time. In addition, metal spacers can only utilize traditional fill methods, which does not allow for fill rates comparable to UniShield glass packages. These two flaws combined cause a competitor’s windows to under-perform from day one and continue to decrease every year thereafter.

  • ✖ Roughly 60% initial fill rate
  • ✖ One layer of hard Low-E coating
  • ✖ Material failure leads to internal condensation
  • ✖ Reduced thermal performace leads to higher utility bills
  • ✖ Over 15-20% loss per 5-year period
