Advantages of Fibrex
Renewal by Andersen’s® revolutionary Fibrex® material has a number of advantages that make it a better choice for replacement windows than either wood or vinyl. This revolutionary frame and material offers the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl, never requires painting and will not crack, pit, corrode, or rot.*
Fibrex is a composite of wood grain and a thermoplastic polymer. It contains 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight, much of which is reclaimed from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities. This process of reclamation makes Fibrex extremely sustainable and has helped Renewal by Andersen windows to achieve the highest SCS certified recycled content of any window replacement company.
Here are a few more brief advantages of Fibrex:
- Fibrex does not need to be treated with wood preservatives or painted, which reduces VOC emissions, which can be harmful to the environment.
- Fibrex material blocks thermal transfer nearly 700 times better than aluminum to help reduce heating and cooling bills.
- A unique fabrication process blends the color with the Fibrex material during production for long-lasting beauty.
The third item in the list above is a crucial advantage Fibrex has over wood or vinyl. The vibrant color of Fibrex will not fade over time. Your Fibrex windows will look factory fresh for years to come with little monthly maintenance required. This is a strong, durable, energy efficient, beautiful material that is designed to help homeowners create a more comfortable living environment in their homes.
