The Biggest and Best in the Business. Period.

Conservision glass is designed and manufactured by the world’s largest and most experienced glass insulator. Our glass is assembled using two separate seals, one on the spacer and one on the back side of the spacer. Because of the research and design of the Conservision glass we can prove that the chance of ever having a seal failure is one quarter of one percent after 20 years. As a matter of fact, in a laboratory comparison of seal failures, Conservision glass will outperform the next largest selling insulated glass by over 400%.

The Wonder of Technology

HGI’s Conservision 800 is a technological wonder. Multiple layers of silver, metal oxide, protective layers and argon gas combine to insure that heat stays inside in the winter and outside in the summer. Dual-pane Conservision 800 outperforms most triple-pane units and provides greater clarity and longevity.

Conservision 800 is the most advanced dual pane glass technology available anywhere today. Conservision 800 combines the high efficiency heat saving and heat reflecting properties of the best triple silver low E glass with a second low E glass pane on the inside of the home. The inside Low E aids in reflecting the heat from your home’s furnace back into the house. Because it is on a touchable surface, it is encased in a thin layer of low iron glass which actually makes it clearer than clear glass.

Does HGI Glass Really Matter?

Glass is glass, right? Well actually, not at all. Window glass is all about efficiency - keep the outside out and the inside in. The best way to achieve this is by combining multiple technologies. Glass coatings, a thin layer of UV reflective material, are the first defense. The second is the spacer which separates the layers of glass. HGI utilizes non-conductive, state-of-the-art spacer technology with the lowest failure rate in the industry, backed by our lifetime warranty. Multiple layers of glass are the third. But more layers have proven to be less efficient than just two with coatings on each side of each pane(2 is greater than 3). HGI’s Conservision choices have been specially formulated to reject the sun’s heat, letting in more light in and keeping more heat out in the summer, while retaining heat during winter. Your home stays cool and comfortable through every season. Condensation is virtually eliminated, providing a healthier atmosphere inside. What’s more, Conservision provides exceptional fading protection, blocking the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays (a leading cause of fading), keeping your furniture, carpets, curtains and wall coverings beautiful for years to come.

Windows that almost clean themselves

Layout 1

Super smooth Clean/Guard coating will provide you with cleaner, low-maintenance glass. Clean/Guard harnesses the sun’s UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. Your windows will stay cleaner longer and will clean easier. Enjoy the effects that a little sun, rain and Clean/Guard glass brings to your windows, including a home that stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Clean/Guard must be ordered in conjunction with ConserVision glass with energy saving Low-e coating. Clearly, Clean/Guard glass is the choice for your windows.

Cover-Guard

How we preserve perfect glass from factory to installation:

Cover/Guard is the clear solution to window protection. This patented film defends your glass. Factory-applied to both the outer and inner surfaces in overlapping layers, it ensures that the entire glass surface is protected. When the construction is complete, the film is removed and only perfectly clear and beautiful windows remain. Cover/Guard is an option on all Home Guard windows and will be applied automatically on all Clean/Guard units.

Internal Blinds

Internal blinds add style to your window while providing the opportunity to control lighting and privacy. So easy to use, yet completely maintenance-free – you will never clean or dust your blinds again. Each blind is sealed between two panes of glass making this the perfect choice for homes with children or pets. Internal mini-blinds are available in white and almond, in manual tilt/raise & lower configurations for most window types. Casement and awning windows can be ordered with blinds, however the screen must be removed to operate the blind. See your Home Guard representative for more information on this great option.

EdgeGuard-red-blue

Because of our advanced design and fabrication, HGI provides a lifetime guarantee on our Edge/Guard spacer units for home owner residential installations. Edge/Guard is cutting edge technology, incorporating a stainless steel spacer with airtight bent corners and a dual-seal construction of compressed polyisobutylene (PIB) and silicone. Since Edge/Guard is a warm-edge IG, the possibility of indoor condensation is greatly reduced. Edge/Guard boasts the lowest failure rate in the industry - 10 times better than the industry average. Edge/Guard also edges out the competition with outstanding thermal performance and solar control.

  1. Primary Seal: Polyisobutylene (PIB) minimizes moisture permeation, is UV resistant and provides an outstanding argon barrier.
  2. Secondary Seal: Specially formulated silicone for IG units provides long-term adhesion, is unaffected by UV exposure and provides excellent durability when exposed to moisture. Silicone also provides structural integrity.
  3. Spacer: Stainless steel spacer features a roll form design to provide maximum area for primary and secondary sealant coverage. It provides increased resistance to condensation and less stress on IG seal system. No polymer content eliminates the risk of chemical fogging.
  4. Desiccants: Beaded molecular sieve provides initial frost points below -65°F. Desiccant assures optimum moisture adsorption while minimizing the effects of temperature-related pressure changes.

50 Year Seal Failure Comparison

Seal Failure Comparison copy
endur3D_parts

A lot of manufacturers talk about performance, but what about durability? Performance over the long haul? That’s where Edge/Guard excels, delivering the industry’s lowest failure rate, plus outstanding thermal performance and solar control.

Tests conducted in an independent test lab where heat and cold conditions replicate a 50 year, the Conservision + Edge combination has logged a failure rate of 0.5%, or onehalf of a single window failures out of each 100 windows installed. Conventional singleseal butyl configurations have a failure rate of 55%, that is 55 glass unit failures out of every100 installed - more than one out of every two windows!

Through the hottest summers and coldest winters, Edge/Guard is engineered for maximum seal durability. With its proven durability Edge/Guard will save heating and cooling energy for years to come. Exceptional longevity and performance … this is what the future of insulating glass looks like.

Does HGI Vinyl Really Matter?

hs-cornercut-665

In the window world, it’s not just about vinyl. Our vinyl is virgin, which mean it wasn’t recycled from old products (which can cause yellowing, warping and other things you certainly do not want in your windows). HomeStar windows are made from Sunshield vinyl, the finest, most durable vinyl available. Since our frames and sashes are made from thick wall vinyl, we are able to weld the corners to completely eliminate air or water infiltration. Our vinyl is heavy enough for us to shadow groove the sash corners to avoid the unsightly welds seen on other windows. Multiple chambers create a window that is very strong and extremely efficient. Remember how your mother told you to dress in layers? That’s the same concept with windows open spaces married with filled spaces in many layers. In addition, HGI’S Homestar windows are durable and boast superior wind load ratings compared to wood and metal (and most other manufacturer’s vinyl) windows.
