The Vanguard Story
Manufacturing innovative high performing windows,
has always been the mission of Vanguard Windows
and the Vanguard line of products is the newest
outcome of this mission.
Homeowners have told us many things: They want windows which
are extremely energy efficient to save money heating and cooling their
homes. They want windows which look great so the value of their home is
enhanced. They want windows which are strong and durable enough
to last a lifetime. And they want windows which require virtually
no maintenance and upkeep.
Sound like a tall order for windows? Not for Vanguard Windows.
We've designed a narrow line patented window that emulates the look of traditional windows. But to make this narrow line window strong, energy efficient, and maintenance free, we married PVC with Fiberglass and created a material called FiberCore - an all-new way of making a window. The internal core of the extrusion is made of a pultruded core of fiberglass, because it's stronger than PVC, metal, or wood. And it's extremely thermally efficient.
If fiberglass is so good, why not make the entire window out of it?
Simple. Fiberglass is not a maintenance-free material; it needs to be stained or painted. To make a window out of fiberglass would mean we would have to mechanically fasten or screw the corners together, instead of fusion welding them together so they won't leak over time.
FiberCore combines the best of both worlds, like having your cake and eating it, too.
And it's only available on Vanguard Innovative Window Systems.
