The GreenesT of AllAccurate Dorwin windows are easy on the environment with more LEED (Leadership in Energy and

Design) focused architects and builders turning to fiberglass windows than any other style. Unlike

some products, Accurate Dorwin fiberglass windows are made tough and last longer than others in

the industry. This means fewer old windows lying around in landfills. Even the manufacturing process

is a step ahead with systems using less energy to create the company’s innovative frame material.

Altogether, Accurate Dorwin windows are among the greenest ways to view the outdoors, an attribute

that comes with the assurance of testing by the National Fenestration Rating Council.

1959 Accurate Dorwin Co. (Dorwin Industries), a leader in the

fenestration industry has been in the business of making

the finest quality and highest energy rated windows and

doors since 1959. Well established in Central Canada,

Accurate Dorwin Co. is dedicated to providing exceptional

customer service to all residential and commercial customers

throughout North America.

1983 In 1983, Dorwin Industries of Winnipeg introduced the first

fiberglass window to the world. The idea evolved from a

simple concept of using a composite material that is thermally

superior to steel, wood, vinyl aluminum, and other materials. It

was a revolutionary idea that proved to be a challenge. Nothing

existed to fabricate the required window profiles. As a result,

Dorwin Industries developed a new manufacturing process

now known as “pultrusion”. Pultrusion involves saturating

parallel strands of glass fibers with resin and pulling it through

a heated die. The result is a pultruded fiberglass profile.

• Fiberglass is paintable, stronger than vinyl, more weather-

resistant than wood, and less thermally conductive than

steel and aluminum.

• It has a low thermal expansion and contraction coefficient

similar to glass making it the ideal frame for most high

performance IG units.

• Fiberglass is a strong frame material ideal to handle heavier

dualpane and tripane IG units.

• Fiberglass frame system has narrower sightlines offering

a higher ratio of glass area (daylight) to frame area than

most conventional frame materials.

Dorwin Industries pioneered and developed a system that

combines the most dimensionally stable window frame

material with foam insulation and high performance IG units.

This system is what Accurate Dorwin Co. now proudly calls,

“The Fiberglass Advantage”.

Profile & History

Page 4: fiberglass windows & doors

The environmental impacts of windows were studied as part of the design process for the Waterloo Region Green Home. There were eight environmental factors that were considered when the decision was made to install windows with pultruded fiberglass frames and a high efficiency glazing system. A comparison to aluminum-clad and vinyl-high performance windows was made.

Materials UsedFiberglass for window frames is made of 65 to 85% glass

fibers and 15 to 35% resin. Silica sand is melted and spun into

the glass fibers. The resin is thermoset polyester, which is a

petroleum-based alkyd containing styrene, glycols and acids.

The insulation in the frames is expanded polystyrene. The

pultruded lineals were produced by Omniglass of Winnipeg

using fiberglass and resin from Owens Corning. The windows

were manufactured and assembled by Accurate Dorwin of

Winnipeg. The high-performance glazing units consisted

of three panes of glass with LOF Energy Advantage Low-E

coatings on surfaces 2 and 5, low-conductivity silicone Super

Spacer from Edgetech and two argon gas fills.

Aluminum-clad wood framed windows require aluminum

sheeting and high quality clear lumber. Some finger-jointed

lumber is used in interior components that are not visible once

the window is installed. Vinyl windows are made from polyvinyl

chloride and often contain steel reinforcement.

Resource DepletionThe raw material reserves for silica sand are very large at

present and are not expected to be exhausted. Quality control

concerns in the production of glass fiber presently preclude the

use of recycled fiber and waste is not recycled into the process

though these options are being investigated.

In-plant waste resins for fiber glass are re-used and re-

blended. The raw material reserves are based on the limits of

petroleum products. The amount of petroleum is relatively

small and contributes to a durable product that has a long

life and energy efficiency not available from other materials.

The polystyrene insulation is a petroleum product and as

mentioned above, has reserves based on the limits of petroleum.

Again, a durable insulation is produced that has advantages in

energy use reduction during the life of the window compared

to other products. Vinyl windows require a large quantity of

polyvinyl chloride resins which use petroleum as feed stock.

Wood windows require clear heartwood for visible components

placing a strain on old growth forests.

Emissions During ManufactureGlass fiber production is said to be a closed process with few

emissions escaping into the environment. Resin manufacture is

also said to be a closed process with very few emissions in the

environment. There is a chemical risk from the resins but it is

less than that of PVC production. Expanded polystyrene is not

produced in a closed process and some of the pentane blowing

agent and other volatile compounds are able to escape.

The production of PVC releases petroleum by product into

the atmosphere. The production of aluminum releases two

fluorine gasses with potent greenhouse warming potential.

Embodied EnergyThe energy intensity (18 MJ/kg) of fiberglass is lower than that

of PVC (26 MJ/kg). Fiberglass frames are slightly heavier than

vinyl but have a lower embodied energy. Wood windows have

a lower embodied energy but aluminum cladding increases

energy requirements significantly.

All of the components for fiberglass windows are

manufactured in North America so that transportation energy

is relatively low as shipping distances are short. Fiberglass

window frames are extremely durable and are expected to

last the life of the house. This means that embodied energy

must only be dealt with once rather than several times, as

would be the case if the windows required replacement (as

would probably occur with other materials).

Energy Used During the Life of the WindowsThe space heating energy consumed as a result of the

windows is much greater than the energy required to

construct the windows.

With fiberglass windows, the space heating energy is actually

an energy gain on average. The Accurate Dorwin windows

used at the Green Home have an energy rating (ER) of +7.2

for the operable versions. This means that averaged over the

four cardinal directions and across the Canadian climate, they

Page 6: fiberglass windows & doors

gain 7.2 watts per square meter of window over the heating

season. Accurate Dorwin Windows are listed for the Ontario

Hydro incentive program that have a positive energy rating

for an operable model.

A standard double-glazed wood window has an energy rating

of -33 W/m2. The highest triple-glazed wood window rating is

-5 W/m2. Vinyl windows have similar ratings as wood.

Ozone DepletionThere are no ozone-depleting chemicals used in the

manufacture of the fiberglass windows. The expanded

polystyrene however, uses pentane (approximately 7% by

volume) as a blowing agent (a greenhouse gas).

Environment Emissions During the Life of the ProductPolyesters and keytones will off-gas for some time after

fiberglass is manufactured. The painted finish on the

surface of the frames is however expected to reduce the

rate of emission. Vinyl windows and to a lesser extent, wood

windows, also have emissions.

DisposalAccurate Dorwin is currently working on a process where

fiberglass is used as a bonding agent in road construction

SummaryTable 1 summarizes how the three window frame materials compare in addressing the eight environmental issues. Energy

use was considered to be the most important environmental factor. From this analysis, it was found that fiberglass windows

have the lowest overall environmental impact. The energy efficiency and long life of fiberglass windows significantly reduces

the need for purchased energy, which means that their impacts on resource depletion and embodied energy are also limited.

The high energy use and to a lesser extent the emissions during production of aluminum-clad, wood and vinyl windows were

the principal factors working against these products.

The Fiberglass Advantage

Strength – Pultruded Fiberglass is the strongest of all window materials. Fiberglass is eight times stronger than PVC, over three times stronger than wood composites and 20% stronger than aluminium.

Stability – Pultruded fiberglass frames exhibit minimal expansion and contraction in extreme temperature changes when compared to other window frame materials. Fiberglass and glass have similar rates of expansion and contraction which results in superior weather seal performance over a wide range of seasonal temperatures changes, smooth window operation and consistent alignment of the sash and frame. As a comparison PVC expands and contracts at a rate eight times of glass.

Energy Efficiency – Pultruded Fiberglass window frames have a much lower thermal conductivity than other materials such as aluminium. This combined with insulated frames and sashes results in some of the most energy efficient windows in the world.

Durability – Pultruded fiberglass window frames will not bend, warp, crack, dent, rust or corrode. Fiberglass will not corrode in coastal applications as it is impervious to saltwater.

Environmentally Friendly – Pultruded Fiberglass window frames combined with high efficiency insulating glass can help reduce the world’s energy consumption. Fiberglass is made from silica sand an abundant natural resource. There is less embodied energy in fiberglass as compared to PVC which requires gas and petrol-chemicals. Aluminium requires large amounts of electricity and natural gas to produce and wood consumes large amounts of slow growing trees.
