    A Blend of Modern Efficiencies

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

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

    produces full-contact weldingpoints and doesnot requirebelow-the-faceflash clean up.

    Intercept Spacer SystemThe Intercept Spacer System features aunique, one-piece U-channel design thatcreates an effective thermal barrier to helpreduce conducted heat loss through thewindow. Its sealed, one-piece design makesIntercept spacers stronger and better atretaining insulating gas than many conventional designs. Intercept spacersare so energy-efficient that they keep theedges of the window glass warmer, so yourhome feels more comfortable in the winter.

    WeatherEdgeFull-Capture SillOur double-hung windows feature aWeatherEdge full-capture sill. This classic sill design lends a subtle touch of traditional charm while channelingwater to the exterior keeping yourwindows free from accumulation ofwater and debris.

This system ensures smooth and easy sash openingand closing, and has been rigorously tested for decades of operation. So rigorous in fact, that this balance systemhas been tested to nearly 6,000 cycles(one cycle is the equivalent of openingand closing the sash), far exceeding theindustry standard of 4,000 cycles.

    TritonLocking SystemAll UltraMaxx 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.
