Owens Corning have released their Innovision fiberglass windows. Developed to meet the demands of extreme environments, the company claims that Innovision windows are the first to feature fully bonded frame and sash manufactured without mechanical fasteners.

A high impact structural mull adhesive is injected into the frame and sash corners of Innovision windows to create a permanent, air- and water-tight joint for long term stability and reliable performance.

According to Owen’s Corning, the result is a window that is suitable for extreme weather conditions in both residential and commercial use, has strong and secure corner joinery anddelivers design pressure ratings of up to 142.5.

""Fiberglass represents growth in the window industry and with Innovision windows, Owens Corning is combining the power of the leader in fiberglass building science with unparalleled performance,"" said Todd Hall, business manager, Owens Corning Construction Services. ""Innovision windows offer the energy efficiency, durability and aesthetics homeowners demand and commercial contractors require for energy efficient building renovation.
