Accurate Dorwin Co. has been in the business of making the finest quality and most energy efficient windows since 1952. Well established in Central Canada, Accurate Dorwin introduced the first fiberglass window to the world in 1983. Evolving from the simple concept of using a composite material that is thermally superior to steel, wood, vinyl and aluminum, fiberglass windows are often thought to be the most attractive window material of the future.
In 1983, Dorwin Industries developed a new manufacturing process known as "pultrusion." Pultrusion involves saturating parallel strands of glass fibers with resin and pulling it through a heated die. The result is a window frame lineal that is paintable, stronger than vinyl, more rot resistant than wood, and less thermally conductive than steel or aluminum. Today, numerous other window manufacturers build a window based on the technology Accurate Dorwin developed.
Fiberglass frames are comprised of 65% - 85% glass fibers. This means the frame and insulated glass unit expand and contract in unison, minimizing air leakage and glazing seal failures. Almost eight times stronger than PVC, fiberglass windows have incredible strength resulting in less frame and more glass. Accurate Dorwin windows will not bend, bow, rot, or twist when exposed to extreme heat or cold. They are impervious to moisture and salt, nor will they pit or corrode, making them perfect for coastal applications.
Accurate Dorwin window frames are foam filled with polystyrene, and when combined with high performing triple pane glazing, offer some of the best energy efficiency on the market today. Green building professionals, LEED designers and conservationists look to a number of factors to determine what makes a green friendly window, and fiberglass is fast becoming the window material of choice.
