Inspired by the push and pull forces of nature – and the idea that two is better than one – Deceuninck North America’s New Genius™ Window System features a simple design while providing exceptional comfort and an unprecedented R-Value capability of R-14 and above.
R-value is a measure of a product’s resistance to heat transfer or insulation performance. It’s actually the inverse of a U-factor, which measures resistance to air flow. (Since most people believe higher numbers are better, R-values have been historically published more often).
In climates like ours with the potential for very cold winters and very hot summers, insulation helps protect us from the extreme differences between outdoor and indoor temperatures – and we save money and resources when our heating and air-conditioning systems don’t need to work harder to compensate.
Higher R-values mean more insulating power. ENERGY Star windows are currently R-3.
The world’s first interlinked dual-sash window that enables thermal performance values exceeding R-14 without the use of exotic films or gasses, Deceuninck’s Genius patent-pending system is designed with two separate, interlinked insulated glass sashes and features a thermal-activated ventilation system that automatically vents solar-heated air into the interior in the winter and outside in the summer.
Genius also integrates a screen and mini-blind system in the weather-protected space between the two sash panels.
“With its unique design and its enviable thermal capabilities, Genius is changing the conversation when it comes to high-performance, energy-efficient windows,” President and CEO of Deceuninck North America Filip Geeraert said.
Available in various configurations including casement, awning-hopper and picture window, Genius offers single-hand operation for each sash, extreme structural load resistance and exceptional sound transmission reduction along with excellent resistance to water and air filtration.
