Council's Highest Insulated Glass Certification Given To Comfort-Gard(R) Plus for Sunroom Glass By Patio Enclosures, Incorporated

Receiving the Insulating Glass Certification Council's highest certification for its Comfort-Gard Plus(R) glass technology, Patio Enclosures, Inc. has become the only sunroom manufacturer to attain this distinction for the commercial and consumer sunroom markets.

Comfort-Gard Plus glass has been subjected to the Harmonized Insulating Glass Standard (HIGS), a test standard that contains three parts: high humidity testing; accelerated weathering testing; and volatile fog testing. The certification means that the glass meets the industry's highest condensation resistance and durability standards. This is especially significant to home and commercial building owners since insulated sunroom space is comprised mostly of glass.

All Patio Enclosures, Inc. insulated glass has passed the highest testing of seal life and gas retention. Seal failure is the primary reason insulated windows suffer degraded thermal performance. Comfort-Gard Plus Glass utilizes Argon, a colorless, inert gas that, when sealed between panes of glass, provides excellent thermal insulation, helping to reduce interior energy consumption. To lower energy usage further, Comfort-Gard Plus windows also employ Edgetech patented Super Spacer(R) technology, a structural, non- metallic foam spacer 950 times less conductive than aluminum spacers. In addition, Super Spacer's acrylic-based adhesive, multi-layer vapor barrier and reverse dual-seal technology using hot melt butyl deliver superior structural integrity, enabling insulating glass units to stand up to high wind loads, extreme temperature changes, and UV exposure.
