Goldenvinyl 5000® Awning

OverviewGoldenclad®Goldenwood®Goldenvinyl 5000 SeriesGoldenvinyl 3000 Series

Welcome to the Goldenvinyl® 5000 Series Awning Section. An awning window works similar to a casement window; the difference being that te window's sash extends from the bottom outward instead of from the side.  The top hinging feature is way to provide ventilation during unpredictable weather.
For more information about options and accessories, sizing, performance data and professional information for the Goldenvinyl® Awning, see the tab chart below.

Warm Edge Technology

Golden windows use only Warm Edge Technology (W.E.T) spacers in their windows.
Warm Edge Technology is a generic term for any spacer bar or system that has better thermal performance than a highly conductive aluminum spacer bar. The two W.E.T spacers that Golden Windows uses are the tin Intercept spacer and the Edgetech Superspacer. 
The intercept spacer is a tin bar that is coated with butyl and holds panes of glass apart in a window. The butyl is used to keep the bar from touching the glass so its conductive properties are reduced. The butyl is also a vital component in keeping the Argon gas that is in the windows in the window.
The Superspacer helps to deliver windows of the highest standards. Superspacer is a non-metal structural foam spacer system that holds panes of glass apart in a window.
Superspacer has excellent resistance to nitrogen and argon gas absorption and it has high UV resistance. It has 100% memory meaning it will return to its original shape allowing for expansion and contraction, which is a major cause of stress fractures in conventional sealed units.
