With the Studio Series, AMSCO combines energy efficiency, sturdy design and good looks into a budget-friendly vinyl window for San Francisco. With clean lines, large 3 inch frames, and energy-saving CozE™ glass standard, these windows are ideal for homeowners who are looking for the perfect mix of performance, appearance and value. Choose from a number of options, styles and colors to create the perfect fit.
Energy-Efficient, High-Performance Glass
CozE performance glass comes standard on every Studio Series window. But no single glass solution can work for every location. That’s why wherever your home, whatever the climate, even in a climate like San Francisco’s, AMSCO offers a range of glass options to keep you comfortable while keeping energy costs down.
Naturally Clean Glass
Keeping ordinary glass windows clean in San Francisco is a constant challenge. AMSCO’s new BriteTM glass uses an exterior coating that disperses water evenly over the surface for faster drying which reduces water spots by up to 99 percent. The Brite glass coating then harnesses the power of the sun to break down dirt and grime allowing them to be rinsed away with the next rain. Your windows stay clean and Brite longer.
If you think your choice in vinyl windows is limited to boring white squares that would look boring in San Francisco, think again. With the Artisan Series, AMSCO has engineered style and design into a functional vinyl window. With deep beveled edges, sturdy frames and a variety of styles, it’s the architectural, aesthetically pleasing details you crave, all in low-maintenance vinyl. Combine that with your pick of six traditional and contemporary, durable colors, and you’ll find your choices in a vinyl window are now anything but dull.
The AMSCO Vinyl Advantage
Not all vinyl is created equal. Lesser quality vinyl can discolor and warp with exposure to sun and harsh UV light common in San Francisco’s climate. But AMSCO’s unique, western-climate specific PVC formula is scientifically formulated to withstand even the harshest conditions season after season – all while maintaining its stability and function. And without ever cracking, chipping, flaking or chalking like paint.
• Color-stabilized vinyl to prevent discoloration
• Formulated specifically for mountain and southwest climate to maintain stability
• Protects against damaging effects of UV rays
We subject our vinyl to independent desert condition tests beyond what the industry requires so you can be assured of enjoying your AMSCO windows worry-free for years to come:
• Air Infiltration
• Water Resistance
• Dimensional Stability
• Weight Tolerance
• Tensile Strength
• Corner-weld Strength
• Durable Distinctive Hardware
Beautiful Colors That Last and Last and Last
Now when you dream, you can dream in color. This co-extruded process fuses the color to the vinyl for excellent resistance to scratching and peeling and does not fade or chalk like paint. The superior solar reflective performance prevents heat build-up within the material; historically, a problem with darker color vinyl windows. And with six charming colors to choose from, you’re sure to find a perfect match for your distinctive look.
Distinctive Grid Options
The Artisan Series gives you a multitude ofgrid options to add architectural interest both inside and out. Grids are available in 5/8 inch flat and 1 inch sculptured sealed between the glass for easy cleaning. Or choose a 1-inch beveled simulated divided lite grid for a more traditional look.
