    GoldenVinyl® 3100 Series Awning Window

  • The GoldenVinyl® 3100 series offers a maintenance-free exterior and a wide selection of colours. An awning window works similarly to a casement window as it operates by cranking a handle that extends the bottom of the sash outwards. The top-hinging feature is a great way to provide ventilation under unpredictable weather conditions.

    • Standard White exterior colour with 3 upgraded exterior colours to select from
    • 25 Optional and custom colours available
    • 4 diffferent Low E Options, all include Argon gas
    • Multiple grille options including grilles between the glass and simulated divided lights (SDL)
    • Choose from Colonial, Victorian, Muskoka or Custom Grille Patterns
    • Exterior Brickmould and sill nosing are available
    • Features two locks for added security and double weatherstripping for draft-free comfort
    • Projected sash allows the window to be open on rainy days
    • Standard hardware or upgrade to the Encore™ hardware system. 

    GoldenVinyl® 3100 Series Awning Windows are available in a wide range of standard and custom sizes that will meet most new construction and renovation requirements.

    This product is also available in the GoldenClad®, GoldenWood® and GoldenVinyl®  5000 Series product lines.

Glass Options

Low E Options

low E

Clear | Hard Coat Low E (3) - CLLE

This is a durable hard-coated low-emissivity glass that provides passive solar gain resulting in year-round cost savings. Used on the 3rd surface it maximizes energy efficiency in the colder Northern region climates, where heating is dominant and the greatest energy concern.

Soft Coat Low E (2) | Clear – SBCL

The soft-coated low-e glass provides solar heat control in moderate to warm climates. The neutral appearance and high level of natural light transmitted makes this glass ideal solution for homes where heating and cooling requirements vary throughout the year.

Hard Coat Low E (2) | Hard Coat Low E (4) - LELE

The addition of a 4th surface Low E technology on insulating glass units allows you to improve the performance of a unit by approximately 15-20%.  During cold conditions the coating on surface 2 reduces the heat lost from the airspace to the outside and the coating on surface 4 will reflect heat back into the room.

Soft Coat Low E (2) | Hard Coat Low E (4) - SBLE

The addition of a 4th surface Low E technology on insulating glass units allows you to improve the performance of a unit by approximately 15-20%.  During warm conditions the coating on surface 2 reflects solar energy outside and the coating on surface 4 will reflect heat back into the room during cold conditions.

Glass Spacer Options

Warm Edge Technology

Golden Windows uses only Warm Edge Technology (W.E.T) spacers in their windows.  Warm Edge Technology is a generic term for any spacer bar or system that has better thermal performance than a highly conductive aluminum spacer bar. The two W.E.T spacers that Golden Windows uses are the tin Intercept spacer and the Edgetech Superspacer. 

Intercept®

The intercept spacer is a tin bar that is coated with butyl and holds panes of glass apart in a window. The butyl is used to keep the bar from touching the glass so its conductive properties are reduced. The butyl is also a vital component in maximizing argon gas retention in the sealed insul glass unit.

intercept

Superspacer®

The Superspacer helps to deliver windows of the highest standards. Superspacer is a non-metal structural foam spacer system that holds panes of glass apart in a window.  Superspacer has excellent resistance to nitrogen and argon gas absorption and it has high UV resistance. It has 100% memory meaning it will return to its original shape allowing for expansion and contraction, which is a major cause of stress fractures in conventional sealed units.
