Fiberglass is a natural choice when you’re seeking energy-efficient, green, sustainable solutions. Typically, fiberglass requires no added materials to reinforce it, reducing the bulk and weight of windows and doors, helping cut transportation costs in the process. The main ingredient in fiberglass is glass. Since glass is made from sand ─ an abundant, natural, non-depleting resource ─ fiberglass is a highly-sustainable solution.
A well-engineered fiberglass window demonstrates vastly superior strength characteristics when compared to other windows, like PVC. Fiberglass provides eight times greater sheer strength when compared to PVC.
