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

The Cabernet R-5 Green Shield window from B.F. Rich were installed at Alliance Hall.

Door and Window Manufacturer magazine will feature its grand award winner in its third annual green awards in its 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—B.F. Rich Windows and Doors, based in Newark, Dele., in our R-5 Windows category for its Cabernet R-5 Green Shield window.

When asked how the product delivers superior energy-efficiency results, the entry form stated, “The lower cost of this dual-glazed window as compared to a triple-glazed window makes it more affordable to consumers and results in a faster return on investment.”

The insulating glass unit uses SunClean™ self-cleaning glass on surface one, Solarban® 70 low-E on surface two and Comfort E-PS™ low-E on surface four. It is argon filled and utilizes the Duralite™ warm-edge spacer, polyurethane insulation in the sashes and frame, antimicrobial weather seals, and GreenGuard® certified UltraVue screen cloth, according to the company.

“The price advantage of this dual-glazed window as compared to our triple-glazed R-5 window has resulted in a year-to-date sales increase of 322 percent over 2010 R-5 sales,” according to company information.
