Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas works with other groups to make the world a better place for generations to come. We ensure that our products create as little ecological impact as possible by meeting the standards set by various socially responsible organizations such as the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). In fact, our windows meet the USGBC’s LEED program certification in three areas: materials, energy efficiency, and resource conservation and indoor environmental quality.
We take environmental care to a different level by innovating materials for Hutchinson windows that increase the energy efficiency of your home. We created Fibrex ®, a composite made of thermoplastic material and wood grain. Our Fibrex sashes and frames contain 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight–much of which is from our own wood window manufacturing facilities. We also fabricated exclusive Low-E4® glass packages that complement Fibrex frames.
Our glass packages, when combined with Fibrex, create the most energy-efficient windows in the market. You can choose from our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass, which is 45% more energy efficient in summer and 56% more energy efficient in winter. Our High Performance™ Low-E4® SmartSun™ glass, on the other hand, is the most energy-efficient glass we offer. It is 70% more energy efficient in summer and 45% more energy efficient in winter when compared to traditional dual panel glass.
Resource Conservation and Indoor Environmental Quality
The creation process behind our windows has helped reduce the impact that Renewal by Andersen factories have on nature. It has also helped our windows achieve the highest SCS certified recycled content of any window replacement company. Fibrex has also helped our parent company, the Andersen Corporation, to become the first window manufacturer to be Green Seal Certified. Moreover, our units can last for many years, so you won’t find them filling up landfills anytime soon.
At Renewal by Andersen of Kansas, we know the importance of quality indoor air to the well-being of you and your family. This is why our Manhattan windows integrate airtight and weatherproofing features to stabilize the room temperature and to ensure that your indoor environment is free from drafts and pollution.
