Structural Performance

All Vector products meet or exceed the published results shown below for structural strength, water resistance and air infiltration. Furthermore, all Vector windows and doors are tested and certified for thermal performance by National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC). Quality and performance are assured through testing and plant inspections by this agency.

All data provided is in accordance with all American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) guidelines set forth in NFRC-100 and AAMA ⁄ NWWDA 101 I.S. 2-97, “Voluntary Specifications for Aluminum, Vinyl and Wood Windows & Glass Doors.”

Due to continued ongoing product testing, the information provided can be changed by Vector at any time without notification. These data supersede any previous data published by Vector.
