The Advantages of Renewal by Andersen’s Exclusive Fibrex Material
Renewal by Andersen’s® exclusive advanced Fibrex® frame material offers a wide range of advantages over more traditional frame materials like wood, aluminum, or vinyl. Renewal by Andersen’s exclusive Fibrex material offers the strength and insulating value of wood with the low maintenance features of vinyl. Fibrex material never requires painting and will not crack, pit, corrode, or rot.*
What is Fibrex?
Fibrex is a composite material produced by mixing wood grains and polymers together. The result of this mixture is a material that is stronger and more durable than any wood and more energy efficient than any vinyl. Fibrex is resistant to warping or chipping from harsh weather as well as both fire and water damage. It will not rot and is not affected by insects like termites. And with all of these structural benefits it still can be crafted into a beautiful, eye catching window frame.
Sustainability & Energy Efficiency
Renewal by Andersen’s exclusive Fibrex material frames and sash contains 40% reclaimed wood fiber by weight, much of which is reclaimed from Andersen Corporation’s wood window manufacturing facilities. This makes it an extremely sustainable material. And the advanced makeup and durability of Fibrex makes it far more energy efficient than wood. Unlike wood, it does not crack or warp, which prevents the escape of costly heating and cooling energy.
