Alpha Vinyl Slider Window


 Text/HTML

Design Possibilities

 

Alpha’s continuous frame provides a solid chassis to hold your sliding sash or mullions that you can arrange as you’d like to achieve your desired window function and design needs.

Sliders

Our horizontal slider windows offer design versatility as a traditional single slider, contemporary offset style or with sliding sash flankers with a fixed middle pane. A fixed transom above can also be incorporated into your window configuration.

Single Hung

Choose a classic vertical function for a time-honoured appearance, or offset the meet rail to achieve a more contemporary look. A horizontal mullion can be used to achieve a traditional transom or used to replicate a stacked window mid-century modern look.

 

Fixed

Fixed windows allow for maximum light and view. Single or multiple lite configurations can be prepared by running vertical or horizontal mullions to suit your design requirements.

 Overview

The Alpha Series combines all of the sliding window features you want into one convenient series – making the customization processas easy as sliding them open.”

Alpha’s design allows us to offer real tripane insulated glass. This means you get optimal ½” airspaces that deliver optimum performance. 

With multiple glass surfaces and airspaces you can dial in your comfort requirements by choosing either our Solaban or Sungate low-e and argon gas to deliver the most energy efficient sliding window available.

Monoframe Solutions


Whether you’re looking for a new build solution or a replacement solution, Alpha has an option for you. Our monoframe offering features a one-piece monolithic frame design allowing for continuous fusion welded corners. This makes your window more ridged and air and water tight.


Replacement Solution

2” Brickmould Monoframe

If you’re replacing older wood windows, choose this option to replicate the look. The 2” brickmould has a snap-on strip that is removed for installation before snapping back in place. 
 

New Build Solution 

J-Trim Monoframe

The 6 ½” jamb makes this window perfect for new builds using traditional 2 x 6 framing. We’ve also incorporated an exterior channel that works as a built-in j-trim for siding, reducing your costs and providing a more pleasing appearance.

Note: Ask your sales consultant for "ratings with grilles".

Low E glass with argon fill is a minimum requirement to meet Energy Star criteria. All tests are simulated with one (x1) or two (x 2) Low E applications at the specified glassposition, without internal decorative grilles. Results are subject to change.

Energy Star & NAFS / CSA Labels On All Durabuilt Windows

Durabuilt windows come with a temporary label that clearly summarizes your window’s NAFS / CSA and Energy Star information. This includes the zone for which the product qualifies – 1, 2, 3 – along with the relevant performance data including the U-Factor, Solar Heat Gain Coefficient and Energy Rating.

Keep these labels for each window purchased as they can be used to qualify for government grants and incentives, as well as our warranty program.
