AMI Impact Windows and High Performance Windows from Seven Sun Windows let you enjoy the beauty and casual luxury of the many coastal regions without compromising safety. Precision-engineered to withstand extreme wind conditions, our windows are rigorously tested and approved to meet or exceed the stringent building codes required for many coastal areas. The high- performance properties of our windows also mean that you can expect long-lasting beauty and easy upkeep. Quality-crafted with premium grade extrusions, the reinforced heavy-duty sash and mainframe combine classic good looks with outstanding protection and year-round comfort.

Model i201 Impact & High Performance Windows

  1. Durable vinyl frames and sashes are made tough with pure vinyl (PVC resin). Their color is formulated throughout so the beautiful finish lasts.
  2. A network of strategic insulating air chambers helps reduce conduction and cut high energy costs.
  3. Fully extruded lift rail for ease of operation for top and bottom sash.
  4. The 13/16” glass unit of the i201 Impact window features a 3mm layer of annealed glass, a warm-edge spacer system and two more layers of 3mm annealed glass fortified by a layer of 0.090 laminate.
  5. Galvanized steel reinforcement for added strength to the exterior of the meeting rail.
  6. Interlock at the meeting rail creates a tight seal for security and peace of mind.
  7. Fin seal weatherstripping and foam filled bulb seal helps prevent infiltration at the interlock.
  8. Heavy-duty galvanized steel reinforcement on the interior enhance overall window strength.
  9. Slim-line sash design for increased glass area.
  10. Galvanized steel reinforcement for added strength at the sill.
  11. “Dead bolt” locking system at the sill helps sash to absorb impact without bending or collapsing.
  12. Compression bulb seal at the sill for added protection from air and water infiltration.
  13. Sloped Sill forces water to drain to the exterior.
  14. Heavy-duty reinforced sash tilt latch helps secure the sash when closed.

Performance Put to the Test

Certification Criteria

For your own safety and protection, building codes in coastal areas are now stricter and more demanding in terms of materials and product performance. To meet or exceed theses codes, the i201 Impact Windows and High Performance Windows are build to exacting specifications and put the test.

Air and Water Resistance

Destructive winds are no match for Impact Windows and High Performance Windows. Using independent American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) - accredited laboratories, our windows are exposed to extreme wind and vigorous water resistance testing. All windows are tested to ASTM E547 for water resistance and ASTM E283 for air infiltration, and must meet or exceed performance standards for resistance to air and water penetration.

Large Missile Impact Testing

Will the window survive an extremely hard hit from a large object - such as a heavy 2 x 4? That’s the proving ground in this test involving a series of impacts against the window or door from a “large missile” - a 9 lb. wood 2 x 4 - calibrated at 50ft. per second upon release, directed against the glass. After the window passes this test, it is then subjected to positive and negative pressure for 9,000 rapid cycles up to 100% of the design pressure. Every element of this test must be passed to conform to the ASTM E1886 and E1996 testing criteria. The i201 Impact Windows are also tested for air and water infiltration, as well as forced entry to meet the testing criteria of AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-5.

Heat Resistance and Dimensional Stability

Made to exact tolerances and using only the best raw materials, our vinyl extrusions are built to withstand the extreme heat and humidity. Specifically in the AAMA Heat Resistance Test (AAMA 303.5), our vinyl profiles must endure heat exposure of 300 degrees Fahrenheit without blistering or cracking. In addition, our vinyl extrusions undergo the AAMA Dimensional Stability Test, which measures a vinyl profile’s tested to these standards and other industry criteria, AMI’s i201 Impact Windows and High Performance Windows consistently surpass benchmarks for quality and endurance.

Color & Grid Options

Colors That Add Distinction

High Performance and Impact Windows are available in decorative options to fit any look, any need, and any design. Start by selecting beautiful white or beige or a light oak, dark or cherry woodgrain interior to finish and complement your window exactly the way you want.

Interior Grids

Classic grids are available in complementary white or beige, in Colonial, Diamond, Prairie and Double Prairie patterns. Contoured Colonial grids feature an authentic modeled “cut wood” look and are available in complementary colors and in matching woodgrains. We also offer narrow Colonial grids with a bright-brass finish. All grids are enclosed within the insulated glass unit for easy cleaning.
