  • Need To Know About Some Of The Best Window Frame Material For Green Building Projects

    #1
    Here's a fix... I really wish to know the favorite choice for the best windows for green projects? I've known Fiberglass Windows are specified for a lot of residential projects but somehow, commercial projects rarely prefer them. Should the commercial application not care about longevity and performance from a window system as well?

    The sole reason why fiberglass windows are not used in commercial projects just because of the fact that they cannot pass fire code and only get a Class C Fire Rating. All commercial projects need at least a Class B Fire Rating for smoke density and flame spread.
    As far as "greener projects" are concerned, it's all a spin! Both fiberglass and PVC window frames tend to create polluting by-products when manufactured.

      Jose, Fiberglass windows are used in commercial applications. Could you please point me out the fire class rating of fiberglass windows for exterior applications?
