Windows are among the highest performance on the market, featuring thermally broken frames and double glazing with low-e coating and an argon gas barrier to improve insulating properties. In addition to their excellent thermal properties, they provide outstanding sound suppression (STC 34), which translates to -10db for very low frequency sound, down to -50db for high frequency noise: with windows closed, traffic and most other outside noise is virtually inaudible inside the unit.
Windows typically provide two or more “awning” style panels to let in fresh air. Panels are protected by built in screens.
All units come with solar-mesh window treatments built-in. During the winter, you can adjust the shades to maximize solar heat gain; in the summer, you can reduce the air conditioning load by reducing the light coming through the windows. The window treatments also provide privacy.
