Visions 2500 multi-chambered frame has fusion-welded corners and is engineered to add strength and insulating performance to the units. Available finishing accessories for Visions 2500 windows snap easily into a convenient, built-in exterior accessory channel and provide the durability for which Visions products are known. Finishing accessories include a mull cover connector, drip cap, j-channel, vinyl brick mould and stucco adapter.
All Visions 2500 products are made from select PVC with high-impact modifiers and UV stabilizers for colorfastness through years of sun exposure. Extruded vinyl in White, Cameo, Tan, and in some markets Desert Tan and Heritage Brown resists chipping and cracking. Hardware is color-coordinated to the windows.
The single hung units feature an improved balance system replacing the traditional block-and-tackle balance system with an inverted coil balance system. This advanced system helps the units achieve a Class 3 AAMA rating, an indication of superior thermal performance, and allows for easier operation because the balance system handles more of the sash weight than previous systems.
The Visions 2500 Series is highly energy efficient, netting a 0.28 U-Value on single hung units with Low-E glass with argon gas-filled airspaces and 0.23 U-Value for units with Zo-e-shield Extreme glass and argon gas in the airspace. Standard glazing on the Visions 2500 line is 3/4-inch insulated glass with a Real Warm Edge Spacer system, which is standard on all glass options.
Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) grilles, and flat and profiled Grilles-Between-the-Glass (GBG) can be added to Visions 2500 products for added dimensions and character.
Visions 2500 sliding patio doors feature a traditional look in the same premium quality as the window units. Steel stiffeners in the panels provide additional strength, durability and security to the door. End-adjustable tandem ball-bearing rollers, or stainless steel rollers for coastal applications, glide effortlessly in the track. All patio doors come with a standard fiberglass mesh screen.
