For years vinyl
windows and doors have been the preferred choice of homeowners all
over North America. Our rigid vinyl windows and doors are designed
and built for years of thermal efficiency, animated to the master
frame. In between, there's insulating double-pane glass to keep
you cool in summer, warm in winter. Outside are durable, attractively
styled, fusion-welded master frames and sashes, multi-chambered
to trap air for energy savings. Made of rigid PVC vinyl, they will
never chip, peel, blister or need painting.
To ensure lasting
quality, all 2000 Series Windows are built with thermally fused,
welded frames that assure maximum strength and prevent the infiltration
of air, water and noise. The rigid vinyl construction combined with
the natural insulating properties of vinyl reduces heat and cold
transfer providing energy efficiency.
Here are some
structural features of the Sunset Vinyl Window Series:
are fusion welded with superior rigidity from our double outer
wall. Multi-chambered extrusions provide increased strength. Metal
reinforced handle section provides long-term strength.
weather-stripping and our own compress seal design are the highest
quality available. Our easy to operate Nite latch is standard.
This feature allows for either top or bottom ventilation.
sashes look best. Four-wall construction provides maximum strength
and protects the sealed unit from thermal cycling. See our ten-year
limited warranty. The co-extruded glazing holds the glass firmly
but gently. Our meeting rail has an additional extruded seal,
which "Hugs" the interlock securely. The heavy-duty
cam-lock pulls the sashes tighter as it provides security.

HP Glass Guard
gives you exceptional visibility, sparkling appearance and ease
of cleaning. HP Glass Guard is always much easier to clean, on average
stays cleaner twice as long and resists staining and discoloration.
The surface of unprotected glass can easily be damaged. HP Glass
Guard maintains beauty and performance by shedding water and contaminants
more rapidly than ordinary glass. HP Glass Guard is a higher quality
of glass. Your choice is clear!
patented drainage system, which automatically opens to let water
escape, then has a positive close to prevent outside air from introducing
into your home. It is the little things that make the difference.
Water draining off the window into the sill track flows through
the sill and is released outside through the drainage weepers. Wind
pressure and insects are blocked from entering the house by the
positive closing action of the drainage weeper door.
The Series 2000
Window is designed to provide high resistance to heat loss or gain
throughout the year. The fusion welded multi-chambered extrusions
and double-glazing trap "still air" adding to the window's
insulation features. The patented TERKAR formula is a space-aged
insulating material, which does not conduct heat and cold as metal
does. In fact, tests have proven that they insulate 1400 times better
than aluminum. Vinyl has insulating qualities comparable to wood
yet none of its disadvantages such as rotting, cracking and the
constant need for painting and expensive maintenance. The positive
interlocking meeting rail with double Q-LON compression seal stops
air and water penetration for many years to come.
There is virtually
no maintenance. The sash and frames, with the color totally integrated
into the PVC, cannot rust, rot, chip, flake, peel, corrode or otherwise
deteriorate. They never have to be treated or painted. The 2000
Series Windows feature tilt-in sashes that make operation safe and
easy from inside your home.
features attractive beveled faced frames. Neat miter cut corners
on both frame and sash eliminates open seams found on many vinyl
and metal windows, which are prone to leakage. The lower sash is
the narrowest sash in the industry, providing maximum light. The
screens are flush mounted to the frames for a clean appearance.
The handles are an integral part of the sash, not a screw-on accessory.
The Series 2000 offers you the best combination of better insulation,
durability, and attractive appearance for an affordable price.
best feature of all is the classic 2000 look. Like the other windows
from Sunset, the Series 2000 has the beveled frame. The clean, thin
lines of the frame and sash members eliminate the "beefy"
look so common in other vinyl casement windows. Available in casement,
slider, and double hung styles.
