Essence Series

Beautiful, natural, wood interior and a strong fiberglass exterior.

Essence windows are not merely a ‘fiberglass-clad’ wood product, but a true wood window enveloped by a tough, durable fiberglass frame.

Milgard's secure connecting system firmly joins the wood interior frame to its fiberglass exterior frame for an aesthetically superior appearance with no unsightly nail holes or staples.

 

Essence Series fiberglass exteriors are resistant to water, cold, heat, insects, salt air and ultraviolet rays for long-lasting performance and low-maintenance. The powder-coated fiberglass exterior finish won’t crack, peel, bend, warp or stick due to expansion and contraction.

 

Every Essence Series window and patio door is designed and assembled in the U.S. and custom made to exact size and specifications.

Awning Windows

With just the turn of a handle, awning windows are easy to use and versatile, pairing well with picture windows.

Awning windows are hinged on top and open outward, enabling ventilation without letting in rain or falling leaves. Screens are on the inside of the window, where they're more protected from the elements. Awning windows are often used for basements because they can be placed high on the wall and easily operate with a turn of the handle. They are a great choice to pair with non-operable windows, such as above or below a picture window, since awning windows are generally smaller in size than double hungs, casements or sliders.

Combinations and Mulling

All Milgard windows and doors are built to your specifications. So while we're showing a few sample combinations, there are literally hundreds of products to combine and ways to combine them. Precision Fit Door and Windows is a Certified Milguard Dealer that can help you explore the possibilities. Because Essence Series has an innovative mulling system, there’s virtually no limit to window combinations.

Durability — the Story behind Fiberglass

Essence Series windows use a newly engineered mulling system that more securely connects multiple units, creating a tight seal and protecting against air and water infiltration. The systems also allows for windows in combinations.

What is fiberglass? It’s a composite structural material consisting of fiber reinforcements, typically glass, bound together in a resin matrix. Used in many applications from household fixtures (tub surrounds) to car bodies and aircraft fuselages. By using fiberglass as a structural core and exterior, Essence Series windows are strong, durable and easy to maintain in any climate.

 

Milgard’s own fiberglass pultrusion process enables us to make the complex profiles required for the exterior look of painted wood windows.

 

Because fiberglass is known for its strength, durability and performance, Essence exteriors:

 

  • Are scratch, dent and impact-resistant
  • Unaffected by time or temperature
  • Impervious to water, cold, & heat
  • Withstand the corrosive effectives of salt air and pollutants

 

Our proprietary powder-coat process uses a similar electrostatic technique as the auto industry to produce baked-on, sag-free, extremely durable exterior finishes that:

 

  • Resist scratches and gouges
  • Provide better color stability that withstands the construction process and weathers well
  • Takes paint easily with excellent adhesion

Essence Frame Accessories are available in these styles.

 Sustainability

 

 

Essence Series windows and doors can play an important role in obtaining the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System™ (LEED) certification. By optimizing energy performance, increasing ventilation and using low-emitting materials, paints, coatings and recycled content, Essence Series can contribute to your LEED rating.

 

  •     Lowest embodied energy while providing the longest life expectancy.
  •     Requires limited use of resources.
  •     Low pollution levels emitted during the manufacturing process.
  •     Made from silica sand, an abundant natural resource readily available almost everywhere.
  •     Embodied energy to extract glass from sand and convert raw materials into finished fiberglass is relatively low.
  •     Aluminum requires heating up to 1700°F while vinyl requires up to 425°F, and fiberglass, 200°F or less.
  •     Sustainable painting process uses no solvents, sprays or drips, produces little or no VOCs, recycles overspray, and yields very little waste (disposable as solid waste).
