High-Performance Glass & Foam
Maximizes Your Energy Savings

The #1 reason homeowners replace their windows is to improve energy efficiency. Windows are roughly 80% glass, so it’s critical to select the optimal glass system for your specific home and climate.

The Mezzo’s ClimaTech® ThermD glass package offers the optimum energy solution for Central VA. Featuring insulating low-E glass, argon gas between the panes, and a Stainless Steel Intercept Warm-Edge Spacer System, ClimaTech ThermD glass maximizes your energy savings year-round.

The Mezzo also comes with cutting-edge cavity foam insulation for greater thermal protection. The foam contains high-purity graphite granules that increase insulating performance over standard window foam.

The Mezzo’s foam is carbonized to better reflect radiant heat, lower thermal conductivity, and enhance insulation capacity. Select chambers of the window are thermally reinforced with the precision-contoured foam liners to increase energy efficiency and achieve a greater U-Factor.

The cavity foam insulation is available with single hung, double hung, sliding, and picture windows. When you choose these windows, the combination of ClimaTech ThermD glass and foam
insulation will achieve peak efficiency (and lower energy bills!) for your home.
