  • GGo GreenExceptionally energy-smart and weathertight, Alside Windows not only reduce fuel consumption needed to heat and cool homes, they also boast a long service life and achieve optimal material use and minimalwaste in production. Virtually all in-plant vinyl scrap is recycled intoother useful products, further reducing the environmental impact ofwaste. Vinyl windows also are eco-friendly becausevinyl resin is derived largely from common salt a sustainable and abundant natural resource!1

    DefinityVinyl TechnologyThe heart of the Sheffield platform isDefinity vinyl. This advanced vinylcompound is rugged, durable and virtually maintenance-free. The materialslow thermal conductivity makes it the perfect choice for window manufacturing.

    EliteWeldFusion WeldingEvery corner of the Sheffield Windowfeatures EliteWeld fusion welding, a technologically-advanced method of construction that delivers superiorstrength. The EliteWeld method

    produces full-contact weldingpoints and does not require below-the-faceflash clean up.

    Intercept Spacer SystemThe Intercept Spacer System features aunique, one-piece U-channel design thatcreates an effective thermal barrier tohelp reduce conducted heat loss throughthe window. Its sealed, one-piece designmakes Intercept spacers stronger and better at retaining insulating gas thanmany conventional designs. Interceptspacers are so energy-efficient that they keep the edges of the window glass warmer, so your home feels more comfortable in the winter.

    WeatherShedSloped SillOur double-hung windows feature a WeatherShed sloped sill. This silldesign incorporates the elegant look of a traditional sill and forces water to drain to the exterior. The result is a great-looking window that is able to withstand harsh elements.

    Sheffield Double-Hung, Sliding, and Casement Windows feature a mainframedesign that helps the Sheffield Windowaccommodate various installation methods and architectural styles.

    Constant ForceBalance SystemOur double-hung window units feature a stainless steel ConstantForce balance system. This systemensures smooth and easy sash openingand closing, and has been rigorously tested for decades of operation. So rigorous in fact, that this balance system has been tested to nearly 6,000 cycles (one cycle is the equivalent of opening and closing the sash), far exceeding the industry standard of 4,000 cycles.

    TritonLocking SystemAll Sheffield Double-Hung and SlidingWindows feature the Triton Locking

    System. Locatedat the meeting rails,this heavy-dutycam lock andkeeper fit tightlytogether when

    fully engaged for added security. TheTriton Locking System also forces theinterlock at the meeting rails of bothsashes to close tightly which helps toprevent air infiltration. Double locks arestandard on all windows 25" or wider.

    SteelForceReinforcementThe SteelForce steel reinforcement isinstalled in every Sheffield Double-Hungand Sliding Window. This heavy-dutysteel extrusion is placed within the sashes

    at the meetingrails to ensureextra protectionat this very critical and oftenused location.

    CommandPlusHardwareOur casement and awning windows feature CommandPlus operating hard-ware. This heavy-duty hardware providesmaximum strength for lifelong ease ofoperation, along with a corrosion-prooffinish that is guaranteed for life.

    Another critical NFRC test is for SolarHeat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). This procedure measures how well a productblocks heat caused by sunlight. Again,the lower the number, the less solar heatthe window transmits into the home.The above chart clearly shows how the performance of Sheffield Windows canbe enhanced with the addition of variousClimaTech insulated glass packages.

    ClimaTech. . . your solution for increased window performance.

    Our optional ClimaTech insulated glass package combines multi-layeredlow-emissivity (Low-E) glass, argon gas**and the PPG Intercept Warm-EdgeSpacer System. ClimaTech is up to 40%more energy-efficient than single or clear insulated glass sytems.

    Sheffield Windows with ClimaTechexceed the performance requirements setforth by the U.S. Department of Energyin conjunction with the NationalFenestration Rating Council (NFRC)test criteria.

    One of the most critical NFRC testsmeasures the rate of heat loss through awindow or door (U-Factor). The lowerthe U-Factor, the better the product is atresisting heat flow, which results in aproduct with a greater insulating value.

    Low-E glass filters long-wave radiationfrom the sun. This reduces solar heatgain from the summer sun, helping tokeep your home cooler.

    Low-E glass takes on a new duty inwinter months. It lets warm solar raysinto your home, while preventing indoorheat from escaping.

    Performance Options

    Make your home an energy miser. Its easy!For maximum energy savings, upgradeyour Sheffield Windows with a ClimaTechinsulating glass package, featuring Low-Eglass, argon gas and the PPG InterceptWarm-Edge Spacer System. The superiorthermal performance of this insulatingglass unit can help lower your energy costswhile further reducing the consumptionof fossil fuels. Many ClimaTech insulatingglass packages meet the latest ENERGYSTAR requirements. Consult your window professional for the optimalglass package required for your homeand climate zone.

    What makes the ClimaTech insulated glasspackage so effective? Since 80% of a window is glass, substantial heating and cooling savingscome from improved glass performance.

    Our combination of UV-filteringLow-E glass, argon gas and the Intercept Warm-Edge Spacer Systemdramatically enhances energy efficiency.Together they can cut the damagingeffects of the sun, which can lead tothe fading of carpets, curtains and furniture, by an additional 72% overclear insulated glass units.

    In winter, a warmer glass temperature ismaintained, increasing the R-Valueby up to an additional 104%.

    In summer, up to a 49% reduction in solar heat gain helps reduce air-conditioning usage.

    Alside offers a variety of ENERGY STARqualified products. Consult your window professional for the optimal glass packagerequired for your home and climate zone.
