What Are High Altitude Windows?


Where your windows were built makes a huge difference.

High-altitude windows are manufactured in places like Colorado, specifically for use in homes and businesses located at higher elevations.  Windows produced at sea level are often sold to homeowners and businesses in places like Denver; but in many cases, unsuspecting customers are surprised to find their windows are warped or even broken before they arrive onsite.  That’s because most replacement windows are comprised of two or three panes of glass, with separators and filler gases between the panes to enhance the window’s insulating capacity.  When these products are shipped from sea level to higher elevations, those gases expand and contract (not unlike a water bottle on an airplane), frequently causing damage to the window frame or glass panes.  High-altitude windows are also manufactured to handle the specific climate and weather challenges common in places like Colorado, as well as the intense bombardment of UV rays typical in locations which could be a mile or more closer to the sun.
