Our commitment to manufacturing energy conserving windows and patio doors
For almost 50 years, Thermal Industries roots have been designing and manufacturing energy conserving window and patio door products. Our philosophy is simple: provide our customers with energy-efficient, maintenance-free products that help to lower their energy bills.
From our environmentally sensitive manufacturing processes to our recycled content, our goal is to produce high-performance windows that meet or exceed current energy-efficiency standards. The result? You get exactly what you need in a window—and so does the environment.
Green window manufacturing processes
Our vinyl manufacturing processes blend environmental sensitivity with high-quality finished products. We recycle our vinyl, glass and aluminum scrap, often selling it to companies outside our industry, such as PVC pipe manufacturers and post-industrial recyclers.
Utilizing vinyl provides our customers products with sustainable life spans, keeping them out of landfills. Our lead-free PVC vinyl is not petroleum-based; its production requires no burning and generates no harmful gases. When it comes to environmentally sensitive manufacturing, our vinyl production methods are among the most progressive in the industry.
Also included in the company’s efforts to make it more environmentally responsible are upgrades to the equipment used to produce glass in our door and window products. Just one example is our new glass oven that uses infrared heating elements that reduce energy consumption by 75 percent, resulting in added savings for the company and the consumer.
Education on 'Green' window products and manufacturing
In addition to taking steps to make the company’s production processes and facilities more environmentally friendly, Thermal Industries also educates company employees about its efforts. As a result, employees are more informed of the company’s green practices and take pride in knowing they’re contributing to the process. Energy-responsible products and employees' green awareness are everyday practices at Thermal Industries.
Save energy, save money, save the environment with high-performance windows and doors
With Thermal Industries' high-performance window technology, you can have a proven solution to resist the sun’s heat in the summer—and welcome it in the winter. Energy-efficient Thermal Industries windows are engineered to accommodate almost any budget, providing the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making them well-suited for virtually any climate zone.
What makes our windows and patio doors energy efficient?
Thermal Industries is a participant in the National Fenestration Rating Council’s Certification Program- a uniform national rating system for energy performance of fenestration products. All Thermal Industries Window and Patio Door products are NFRC tested, certified and labeled.
Our LoE2 glass boasts up to eight layers of microscopic coatings that act like a filter. In summer, the LoE2 glass allows ample visible light to pass through while blocking infrared and ultraviolet radiant solar energy. The result? Rooms stay cooler. In winter, the glass helps to keep rooms warmer by reflecting heat back into the home while letting warm, solar rays in.
Our warm-edge, insulating glass sealant systems flex with the glass in hot or cold temperatures to help prevent sealant failure. These insulating spacer systems keep the edges of the glass warmer, dramatically reducing condensation while keeping warm air in and cold air out. Insulating gases, such as argon or krypton, are used in our double and triple pane window and door products.
