Decoding An Andersen Window Sticker


I have an Anderson Flexiframe window (four to be exact) and would like to determine if they are Low-E windows.

I would look at the glass if I wanted to know if had Low E coating on it. The frame could be Andersen Flexiframe components and possibly some other glass. If it is an all Andersen product there should be an A/W Logo in one of the corners of the glass. Flexirames sometimes were just sold as extrusion lengths and setup shops would custom make whatever you wanted, and tell people, Yup, it's an Andersen, while only partially being true.

I found the triangular AW logo in the corner and I think it read 'clear glass' on the bottom of the logo. Seems they're not Low-E? There is a marking on the glass in a different location that it's tempered.

Andersen's site shows a label that is located on this window frame, but my label is incomplete-missing the information that lists the glass options.

How about calling Andersen customer service and give them the PO number listed on that label.

In the lower right corner is the AW logo. It'll either say Low-E or Dual Pane Clear.

You can call Andersen @ 1-888-888-7020 and give them the FX # from the label, which is 3818X1. That is the serial number that will tell them everything about that piece of glass.

Re: Decoding An Andersen Window Sticker


What you posted is an IG (glass) sticker and not a window sticker.

The information from the sticker is that there is no LowE coating on the glass.
