THE INDUSTRY’S FIRST
“SUPER GLASS”

The Empire State Building

A MONUMENT TO SAVINGS: THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING
This American iconic building in New York City had an energy usage problem. In 1991 they attempted to remedy the situation by replacing the original 1931 windows with  new double pane units. The result was an improvement of a R1 rated window to R2. Dissatisfied with the first attempt, they turned to Heat Mirror Technology. The results were  beyond impressive. Upon replacement of the 6,514 double  pane windows, Heat Mirror Technology reduced emissions  of the skyscraper by 38% with the R8 rated system. The calculated annual energy savings is $339,000 with a return on investment of just under four years.

Princess Elisabeth Research Station

EXTREMECONDITIONS, EXTREME PERFORMANCE: PRINCESS ELISABETH RESEARCH STATION
When building in Antarctica you leave nothing to chance. With the most extreme meteorological conditions known to man, air temperatures of -58°F to 23°F, and  maximum wind speeds of 155 mph, the International Polar Foundation faced monumental challenges in choosing appropriate materials for construction. Naturally when it came to the windows for the facility, Heat Mirror Technology was the only option to meet the demands. Upon completion in 2009, the Princess Elisabeth became the world’s first zero emission research station to run entirely on renewable energies.

David and Lucile Packard Foundation Headquarters

LEED PLATINUM, NET ZERO BUILDING: DAVID AND LUCILE PACKARD FOUNDATION HEADQUARTERS
As the Packard Foundation laid out plans for their new headquarters in Los Altos, California, they wished to  construct a building that embodied the work of their foundation. They desired that the design minimize the  use of natural resources for heating and cooling while not sacrificing the comfort of their employee’s workspace. Their independent study found that the use of Heat Mirror Technology allowed the final design at 343 Second Street to have more windows than typical office spaces  but performed so well that the building could forego the normal need for supplementary perimeter heating. Upon completion, the Packard Foundation Headquarters is the  largest Net Zero energy certified building in the world.

The Museum of Flight

PRESERVING HISTORY: THE MUSEUM OF FLIGHT
America has a rich history of pushing the limits of science and technology. Our pursuit of flying encompasses this unwavering spirit and The Museum of Flight in Seattle, WA is tasked with preserving 175 different aircraft that document its evolution. When designing a building that  will protect the likes of the B-17, B-29, B 52, M-21, the inaugural Air Force One, the Concorde, F-14 and F/A-18,  you need an expansive space that protects items from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays. Architects of the largest air and space museum in the world chose Heat Mirror Technology for its unbeatable resilience to UV,  providing 99.7% protection from the damaging light.

Sobek Glass House

PUSHING THE LIMITS OF DESIGN: SOBEK GLASS HOUSE
In 2000, Architect Werner Sobek completed a fourstory housing structure in Stuttgart, Germany. While the structure was built of completely recyclable materials  producing zero emissions and is self-sufficient in terms of heating energy requirements, the most astonishing fact is that all the exterior walls were made of glass. Sobek’s design tested the long touted claim of Heat Mirror  Technology that windows could insulate as well as walls. While this house may not offer the privacy you want, it boasts energy efficiency that any homeowner would enjoy

THE PINNACLE OF PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN

DESIGN

Each step of the design process was questioned in order to achieve the ideal replacement
window and door. A finished product that the industry would be measured by for its
balance of appearance, security and performance.



SUNSHIELD PVC
Rather than settle with using a “pure” vinyl extrusion in our frames and sashes, for strength and longevity of your investment, we take it a step further. Our formula is enhanced with Titanium Dioxide to shelter your home from damaging Ultraviolet rays that would otherwise destroy an exterior building material.

BREATHE EASY
Our extrusions ensure the health and wellbeing of your home. SunShield PVC was engineered to be phthalate free, meaning your KHPP Windows and Doors will never emit toxic off-gasses.

ECOCLEAN FOAM
EcoClean Foam is the first polyurethane window foam that has achieved certification as a BioPreferred® product from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for its renewable content. This injection foam filling process provides your home with better thermal performance, greater energy efficiency and reduced condensation.

FUSION LINKED WELDS
A lifetime-backed product needs the assurance of an unbreakable design. Each corner undergoes four-point computerized welding to seal the unit. This heated process bonds the joints permanently together; a manufacturing capability unavailable from any wood, composite, aluminum or fiberglass product.


YOUR HOME IS YOUR CASTLE — DEFEND IT LIKE ONE

SECURITY AND SAFETY



  1. FRONTLINE STS INTERLOCK: Successfully integrating moving to non-moving components of a window determines if it will stand the test of time. Our unique Frontline STS Interlock securely connects the bottom sash to the frame to ensure wind, moisture and intruders stay where they belong: outside

  2. SENTRY CAMLOCK: Recessed into the design, the Sentry Camlock provides sleek aesthetics without compromising security. A smooth and secure 180° activating camlock clasps the sashes together to break the spirit of any would be invader.

  3. INTEGRATED LIFT RAIL: The Meridian’s integrated lift rail serves two purposes: the ergonomic design eases operation of the window unit while overlapping the frame when closed. The added design creates another channel to prevent air infiltration.

  4. ANTI-MICROBIAL TRIPLE WEATHER-STRIPPING: Block your home from dust and allergens with the added protection of weather stripping that prevent the growth of mold and mildew.

    FORTRESS MR INTERLOCK: The center point of a window can be its most vulnerable element. Inadequate designs allow for air movement or worse, burglars, to easily penetrate the heart of the window. The Fortress MR Interlock joins the moving sashes together with deep interconnecting pockets that block the wind and prevent exterior access to the locking mechanism.

    DP 55 RATING: Your home’s strength is determined by the quality of the materials you build it from. Thankfully, replacement windows have a measurement to determine that level of strength. Design Pressure (DP) is the amount of forced air or water a window can withstand before failing; the greater the capacity, the stronger the unit.

CREATE A BARRIER BETWEEN YOUR
HOME AND THE ELEMENTS


In 1865, Thomas Stetson patented the insulated glass unit. Today, we commonly refer to it as double pane windows. Stetson was praised for the insulating capabilities they produced compared to a single pane of glass. Advancing on that same idea, Stetson’snext patent was for triple pane insulated glass units that further improved insulation. Surprisingly, more than 150 years later, all other window manufacturers believe innovation stopped there.

At KHPP Windows and Doors we have lofty goals for the energy efficiency of your home. In the scorching days of summer, we want the interior of your windows to be cooler than the walls supporting them. Conversely, in the middle of winter, we want your interior glass to be as warm as your walls. What others cannot offer, we call Heat Mirror Technology.

As housing designs have changed to incorporate the use of more windows, our desire to use less energy to heat and cool the home has increased as well. In 1974, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) began development of a new glass system that would reduce energy consumption and associated carbon emissions as part of a research program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. Ultimately, the group of engineers utilized a suspension system that eliminated the need for heavy, outdated triple pane glass systems or overly dark window tints. The invention became known as Heat Mirror Technology and quickly became the standard of high-performance glass systems around the world.

HEAT MIRROR TECHNOLOGY
SUSPENDS A LIGHTWEIGHT
POLYETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE
(PET) FILM INSIDE THE AIRSPACE
OF A DUAL PANE INSULATING GLASS
UNIT TO CREATE MULTIPLE SUPER
INSULATING CAVITIES.

This film uses nanoscale coatings of metal to reflect heat back to its source. By creating these independent cavities, Heat Mirror Technology improves the insulating performance of dual pane glass by up to 500 percent. Better yet, since the energy required to produce Heat Mirror film is 16 times less than that of glass, a Heat Mirror Insulating Glass unit has a 30 percent lower environmental footprint than a comparably sized triple-pane glass unit.
