At Deceuninck, we are excited to launch a brand new window system to fabricators that meets and in some configurations exceeds ENERGY STAR 6.0 for all climate zones,” said Filip Geeraert, president and CEO of Deceuninck North America. “Our customers have come to expect innovation, but our approach to the new ENERGY STAR requirement has been truly unique. By launching eos, we are wellpositioned to offer what the market demands. And we have delivered what we promised, which are ways to build a better window.”
Key performance features of the eos window system include meeting ENERGY STAR requirements with a .27 U-factor with double pane glass configuration and the Most Efficient Window program with a .20 U-factor with triple pane glass and without argon, and ≤ .04 air infiltration (exceeding the version 6.0 requirement of ≤ .30). The design features a unique telescoping welded sill, triple weather seals, and patented features that enable a design pressure rating for DP50 that can be configured for higher performance. Triple glazing is also an option with an insulated glazing (IG) package that can accommodate from ¾ to 1¼ inches.
Eos offers a variety of color and finish options including a core standard offering of stocked laminate colors. Standard solid colors include white, sandstone and clay. Standard laminate colors include light oak, dark oak, calvados cherry and bronze. Other available colors include chocolate brown, hunter green, silver metallic, midnight, clay, cherry, Winchester light oak, maple, real oak and real pine.
Eos is designed to accept a new line of accessories, offering exceptional customization in a value package. All extrusions are manufactured using Deceuninck’s exclusive SunShield® materials developed and formulated to withstand the harsh effects of weather and ultraviolet light. Laminated products utilize Solex™ technology, offering curb appeal and unrivaled quality, color retention and weather resistance. Eos is also designed for INNERGY® Rigid Thermal Reinforcements, an advanced fiberglass insert that helps provide greater support and insulation versus traditional aluminium reinforcements.
