The PrimeLok new construction maintenance-free vinyl window system offers the ultimate line of windows to builders and homeowners alike. The patented integral J-channel and welded nail fin are designed for ease of application and sealing out air and water penetration. The beauty of the new soft curved sash design and unique cove mold look offer a more traditional wood window interior and exterior appearance without the maintenance. PrimeLok windows are strong and tough due to the multi-chamber heavy wall construction; fusion welded frame/sashes and precisely engineered interlocking vinyl window extrusions.
Maximum energy and sound transmission efficiency are achieved by ¾” “Warm Edge” insulated glass, the ultimate in window design and the use of premium hardware and weather stripping. Finally, add the natural beauty of the maintenance free finish of Sunshield vinyl, which retains its sheen year after year.

When selecting windows for your home you want to look for products that give you the quality and performance your home deserves. A good place to start is to look for windows that have Intercept insulated glass.
Intercept is a patented “Warm Edge Technology” spacer system that features a unique one-piece, U-channel design that creates an effective thermal barrier. It, therefore, reduces conductive heat loss through the window. Intercept’s sealed; one-piece design makes it stronger and better at retaining insulating gas than conventional spacer designs. The Intercept spacer is so energy efficient that it keeps the edges of the window glass warmer, making your home more comfortable in the winter. www.ppgglass.com
