Quality Wooden Windows Defined
Quality, for Pella Windows, is defined by innovative, purposeful design that delivers unmatched performance. Beyond developing high-tech manufacturing techniques, Pella has also developed exclusive installation methods that help to ensure its windows fit well and last.
Behind every new window is Pella’s Design Assurance Laboratory. Each window is certified to every industry standard, but in the Design Assurance Lab, test after test confirms that Pella wooden windows exceed the most rigorous standards. Testing includes:
- Exposure to extreme temperatures – using infrared cameras to detect any energy loss
- Accelerated weathering
- Acid/salt corrosion
- Specially designed light chambers to simulate the harshest impact of direct sunlight – ultraviolet, visible light and infrared
- Advanced testing of wood preservatives to ensure resistance to moisture, decay and stains from mold and mildew
