Premium Performance Windows


July 11, 2016
This article first appeared in the July 2016 issue of Pro Builder.

Certified by the Passive House Institute for use in extremely cold climates, Zola Arctic, a new offering from Zola Windows, is a premium performance window that can be used in buildings across a broad spectrum of temperatures and climates. A timber-aluminum frame, PU-foam insulation, thermal glazing, and a superspace triple seal with butyl as a secondary seal combine to create a window with an R-value of 15 (a typical Energy Star window has an R-value of between 2.5 and 3.7). Zola Arctic has a visible light transmittance of 64 percent that allows for maximum daylight, uses German concealed hinges—available in marine grade stainless steel for coastal conditions—and has a powder-coated aluminum exterior for durability and longevity. The Fixed Windows can fit openings as large as 8 feet wide and 10 feet high, while the Tilt & Turn Windows can fit expanses as large as 5 feet wide and 9 feet high.
