While searching the internet for replacement or new construction windows, you may have seen the term fusion welded. But what does fusion welded mean?
On a typical aluminum block frame window the corners are joined by screws, making it susceptible to leaks or breakage. Vinyl window construction helps solve this problem. Vinyl is a better insulating material than aluminum, and the corners can be fusion welded. The joints where the vinyl meets are heated and pressed together, making the window frame and sashes stronger and creating an almost impermeable seal.
When deciding between aluminum or vinyl frame windows, this benefit is worth considering — especially if energy efficiency is a main concern.
