Ply Gem Enviro

Ply Gem Enviro - SustainabilityGreen is more than a color at Ply Gem Windows – it’s the way we do business. We’re leading the way with environmentally friendly windows that are sealed and insulated so well, they help lower utility consumption. But we aren’t stopping there. We want to make sure we also reduce our company’s carbon footprint by operating our business in the most energy efficient manner possible.

 

Our Sustainability Efforts Are Clear

  • Our windows insulate better because
    they feature high performance spacer systems
    and advanced window frame designs.
  • Special Low-E glass coatings help windows
    reflect infrared light, keeping homes comfortable
    in extreme heat and cold.
  • Sustainability BrochureOur products can use multiple Low-E coatings,
    specifically tailored to the needs of different climate zones.
  • Our multiple pane options offer greater energy efficiency,
    increased impact resistance and better sound insulation.
  • Gas fills such as Argon and Krypton provide better
    insulation than regular air.
  • The creative use of materials and pre-finished wood
    parts results in reduced on-site finishing and less on-going
    maintenance.
  • Select Ply Gem products sold in Canada are registered
    for use in the Canadian Built Green program. For
