There are a few dozen high performing replacement window manufactures in the US that have their products well certified. Over fifty years ago, there were only a few company building very good replacement windows, so a lot has changed in the way that windows are built, fusion welded, and the technology keeps getting better and better. Zen Windows only uses Soft-Lite’s high quality windows and it with these advanced window manufacturing that we add one more level of excellence. The triple-pane window.
Our triple-pane window is called the Lotus Triple-Pane. As with the double pane, the Zen Windows’ Lotus triple-pane windows have the latest Low-E glass coating replete with argon or krypton gas to create an extremely effective insulating layer between the glass panes. This amplifies the insulating power. The Zen Window Lotus line is Energy Star, AMA Gold Label Certified, and use the Ultra S glass package system which includes double strength glass.

While it’s true that Dayton does not have the most volatile weather, the cost difference to go to triple-pane is nominal while gaining the best insulation available for these largest openings in your home. The walls in your home have a very high insulation value, but when it comes to the window openings, the value (called the R value) drops lower.
Many tests are run against the triple-pane windows that we would be installing in your home. Tests that measure exactly how much air passes through the window exposed to a 25 mph wind. Zen Window’s Lotus Triple-Pane Windows are five times better than the industry minimum. (Industry Min is .30 cfm, cubic feet per minute, while Zen Window’s Lotus clocks in at the amazing small amount of .06 cfm.)
All of our Zen Window lines come fusion welded, which provides an exceptionally strong and durable virgin vinyl replacement window.
