DWM’s Green Awards—View a Nominee in the R-5/Supplier Category

Door and Window Manufacturer magazine will feature its grand award winner in its third annual green awards in the upcoming November-December issue. The winner was chosen from the dealer category, but we are also featuring nominees in some of the other groups as well. This week we are featuring a nominee—Royal Building Products, that falls into a few categories—supplier and R-5 Windows–for its Eco-Window product family.

The essential characteristics of an environmentally friendly fenestration product, according to Royal, are:

–          Durability over the years of the window system.

–          High-energy performance in cooling, heating and mixed climate.

–          High condensation resistance.

–          High structural performances and water resistance.

–          A level of resistance for air infiltration and air exfiltration lower than 0,100cfm/ft2. That level of resistance needs also to be achieved at -30C (-22F) as it is at ambient temperature.

–          Recyclability of materials used.

–          Aesthetics by its design, colors and finishes.

According to Royal’s nomination, the company kept these factors in mind when developing the ECO-WINDOW product family.

From its all vinyl window system to the hybrid window system, the ECO-WINDOW product family is available for both residential and commercial construction. The line includes the all vinyl single- and double vertical and horizontal sliders, plus the vinyl casement, awning and fixed windows. All of these series can achieve a R5 value, according to the company.

Additionally, the Fusion Hybrid Casement window system meets Miami Dade and Broward County standards and can also achieve an R5 value.
