Fibrex® is a composite material patented by our parent company, Andersen® Corporation, that consists of 40% recycled pine wood fibers and 60% vinyl. Fibrex has many benefits that other window materials don’t offer. For example, wood has a low thermal expansion rate, so our Fibrex replacement windows are less likely to expand when exposed to heat versus other materials like 100% vinyl.
The recycled pine wood is a byproduct of our wood window production which makes our Fibrex material affordable and sustainable. So sustainable, in fact, that Fibrex was awarded the Green Seal™ of Approval, the only window product to be certified.
What Is Green Seal?
Green Seal is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping consumers find environmentally sustainable products, including windows. It does this by certifying manufacturers that offer environmentally responsible products and services. Green Seal’s Environmental Leadership Standards are considered credible, transparent, and consistent with the guidelines of global sustainability and environmental organizations.
Why Did Green Seal Certify Fibrex?
Fibrex is manufactured in an environmentally responsible manner and installed with environmental sustainability in mind. Additionally, no quality is sacrificed during the manufacturing process and installation.
We frequently install many types of windows, especially double hung windows, and all of them framed with Fibrex. Our customers know we are installing windows with strength and thermal insulating quality that allows them to outlast any other window material available.
What Are the Benefits of This Certification?
Homeowners don’t frequently replace their windows, but when they do, they expect the work to last year after year. Thanks to the composite properties of Fibrex, our replacement windows are stronger and, as mentioned above, they expand less than vinyl windows. As an added bonus, we simply produce less waste than other window companies because much of our wood and vinyl is recycled to create our Fibrex windows.
Not only do our customers in Denver and Colorado Springs get the best windows, but the planet is better off too. Call us now to see the Fibrex difference at (303) 823-4312 or (719) 419-5496.
