How Durable is Pella Impervia®?

posted on September 12, 2019 in Dallas

How durable are Pella Impervia® windows? See for yourself.

We can talk about the superior strength and durability of Pella Impervia windows, which are engineered from a five-layer fiberglass composite called Duracast® Material 17.1 But sometimes seeing is believing, so we’ve put together a demonstration to make a believer out of you.

Please step inside the Pella Design Assurance Lab:

The video compares three different window materials: Pella’s fiberglass, Pella’s vinyl, and Fibrex, which is a wood vinyl composite material. Our goal was to visualize what it means to be durable by demonstrating the quality of each material under the stress of a practical scenario.

From the perspective of a contractor, the durability of a product is essential. If the window is damaged during installation, the cost for replacing it is coming out of their pocket. By simulating the installation of a window using each of the three selected materials in a room temperature environment, we were able to see firsthand how well the impact-resistant properties of Pella’s fiberglass and vinyl products hold up compared to Fibrex.

The difference is dramatic.

The windows of your home are only as good as the materials they’re made from, and Pella Impervia represents a material you can trust. Visit our showroom to see our products up close and in person or contact us to set up a free in-home window consultation today.

1In testing performed in accordance with ASTM testing standards, Pella's Duracast has displayed superior performance in strength, ability to withstand extreme heat and cold, and resistance to dents and scratches.
