Material – Pella Impervia Awning Window
Pella Impervia windows are made from Pella's patented five-layer, engineered Duracast® fiberglass composite.
- A fiberglass composite sharing the same properties of strength, durability and temperature resistance as materials used in the aerospace industry.
- Allows Pella Impervia products to withstand extreme conditions better than windows made from other materials.
- Highly stable material won't expand, warp or sag in summer heat, or shrink and turn brittle in harsh winter conditions.
Nine times stronger than vinyl and twice as strong as aluminum.*
|Very Good||Very Good||Fair|
Withstands heat up to 200° F and cold down to -40° F.
Low expansion and contraction rate assures consistent, weathertight seal between sash and frame.
Withstands impacts without deformation.
In testing performed in accordance with ASTM testing standards, Pella's Duracast fiberglass composite has displayed superior performance in strength, ability to withstand extreme heat and cold, and resistance to dents and scratches.
- Unlike aluminum, which is a natural conductor, Duracast fiberglass composite offers excellent insulating properties and exceptional energy efficiency.
- The U-Factor of the Duracast fiberglass composite frame is 2.4 times better than thermally broken aluminum.
- When compared to thermally broken aluminum, Duracast fiberglass composite offers greater resistance to condensation and superior thermal comfort to those seated near windows.
- Unlike vinyl or aluminum, Duracast fiberglass composite offers low expansion and contraction rates that help ensure a consistent bond between sash and glass and a weathertight fit between sash and frame.
- Duracast fiberglass composite withstands extreme heat (up to 200° F) without warping, sagging or softening – even in dark colors.
- Duracast fiberglass composite withstands extreme cold (as low as -40° F), unlike vinyl, which can become brittle in extreme cold.
- Duracast fiberglass composite withstands major impacts without deformation, especially in cold weather.

SureLock® Unison Lock System
- This patented locking system reaches out to pull the sash against the weatherstripping to form a tight seal. A concealed linkage secures multiple locks with a single easy-to-reach handle. For operable awnings over 2' 5-1/2" in height, the Unison Lock System is at the jambs.
- Standard awning: one lock installed on units less than 29" wide, two unison operating locks installed on units over 29" wide.
- Large awning: one installed on units with frame heights 41" and less, two unison operating locks installed on units over 41" frame height.
Stainless-steel operator linkage, hinge slide and hinge arms resist rust and corrosion and ensure years of dependable performance.
