Why Milgard Trinsic Vinyl Windows






Why Milgard Trinsic Vinyl Windows? 

Vinyl is a staple material in a wide range of industries, including home remodeling. Vinyl, or PVC, is a plastic. Developed in the early 19th century, it gained popularity across industries because it’s low-cost produce, is resistant to moisture, and is easy to mold and color.

More than that, it’s also a  recyclable material, since it’s made mostly from salt - a renewable substance.

Because of the inherent strength of this particular kind of plastic and the ease of repurposing it, vinyl can have an extremely long lifespan. For the longevity most of us look for in our home elements, vinyl windows are a reliable option that can be customized to blend perfectly with our homes.

Milgard’s Trinsic Series has captured the best vinyl has to offer and made it an even more stand out material.

All vinyl is not created equally. Quality will differ from one manufacturer to the next.

Milgard has developed their own vinyl formula, which carefully considers titanium dioxide content and finishes their frames with a premium two-coat finish.

The result? Their vinyl windows more heat resistant, which guards against aging and warping.  In an environment with plentiful sunlight, exposure to UV rays can compromise the integrity of the vinyl. Milgard’s formula and finishes allow ultraviolet rays to pass through the color formulation and reflect off the vinyl frame keeping the windows looking new for years.

Milgard’s high-quality vinyl technology means they’re able to produce a slimmer frame. No matter which operating style you choose, the Trinsic series features equal sightlines and minimalistic hardware, which provide a streamlined look as well. Clean lines create a sleek, graceful and modern silhouette that maximizes views and brings more natural light into your home, setting the Trinsic series apart.

What About the Glass? - Milgard Trinsic Series

From a performance perspective, glass is one of the most important elements of a window. The right glass can improve energy efficiency and offer increased privacy with texture and tint options.

Consider that each room of your home has different levels of sun exposure depending on the direction your windows face. One side could benefit from sun protection while another area of your home could benefit from increased privacy.

For areas of your home that experience the most sun exposure, the Trinsic series offers two low-emissions glass coatings:

SUNCOAT® Low-E2 Glass 

This is a microscopically thin coating applied to one side of the glass to reflect heat from its source in the summer and reduce harmful UV rays (up to 84%!). SunCoat Low-E2 glass comes standard on all Milgard dual-pane windows.


Reduces solar heat gain more than two-coat, Low-E glass which helps keeps your house cooler in the summer. You’ll also enjoy additional protection from UV-A and UV-B rays for your fabrics and other furnishings.

The below options are available for rooms requiring a bit more privacy:

Better yet, this hardware blends perfectly with the minimalist, modern aesthetic of the Trinsic series. So what makes the Trinsic series stand out in the world of window hardware?
