Ply Gem’s Premium Series 1000 double hung windows feature both top and bottom operable sashes, with an easy lift balance system to ensure easy, smooth functionality. The heavy duty multi-chamber PVC construction comes standard with insulation, for added energy efficiency. Paired with the insulated glass units, standard Low-E and argon gas fill, you will reduce your energy costs.
The dual wall flush fin adds strength and durability, and the maintenance-free PVC construction will never require painting. The PVC frame construction comes in four vinyl interior options (beige, earthtone, sandstone and white) and four vinyl exterior color options (beige, Colonial Cherry (woodgrain), Natural Oak (woodgrain) and white). Both operable sashes are solid for easy operation, with tilt lashes to keep sashes secured, and high-security cam-action sash locks (25” windows include two sash locks). Weather stripping on both the sill and interlocks provide airtight performance, added security and long-term performance. You can limit the amount the sash opens with the ventilation limit latch.
There are a variety of glass options available to fit your needs:
*Low-E glass features a very thin, secondary thin metallic dual layer coating, which allows light and the sun’s heat to pass through the insulated glass, while it reflects radiant heat waves. This will help keep your home cooler during the summer months by blocking radiant heat, while trapping radiant heat in cooler climates during the winter.
**Argon gas fill is a safe, colorless and odorless gas that is denser than air. When combined with Low-E, insulation is improved, as heat and cold do not pass through the argon gas as easily as through air.
Choose from 5/8” flat grids or 5/8” sculptured grids in a variety of patterns to fit your aesthetic preferences.
