Looking for highly durable & secure replacement windows in Toronto? Go with an innovator.
Aesthetics aside, homeowners should feel entirely comfortable and confident that their residential windows will keep their homes safe, secure and sealed off from the elements when they need it. At Magic, we have developed unique, innovative window designs that seamlessly combine strength, durability, efficiency and excellent security features. Read on to learn more about the features and benefits that make ours some of the most secure replacement windows in Toronto.
1. Our highly-efficient frames are reinforced with aluminum and galvanized steel for superior strength
Many window replacement companies in the GTA tout the benefits of their vinyl PVC frames, citing their cost-effectiveness and insulating properties. And while these are both undeniable attributes of vinyl frames, these alone do not make up for the glaring structural flaws. Vinyl PVC is simply plastic — nothing more, nothing less. These frames are a combination of different plasticizers, pigments and chemicals with hollow chambers that allegedly make for a lighter, more flexible product. What does this really mean? It means that hollow vinyl PVC frames lack strength, rigidity and durability. They are disposable products that are highly susceptible to physical damage. Plus, these factors lead to significant expansion and contraction in fluctuating weather conditions.
How we solved the problem
There is no denying that vinyl PVC, while structurally flawed, is an efficient material. It has a very low thermal conductivity, meaning that heat does not flow through the material effectively. Plus, vinyl allows window manufacturers to weld the frame’s corners to create a perfect seal. Consequently, there is no question that vinyl PVC insulates well and is very effective at repelling water and eliminating unwanted air transfer. The key with vinyl, then, is to use it in the right context. Magic began as a manufacturer of aluminum windows. Therefore, we’ve always had an appreciation for strength and durability in window design. Aluminum does come with one detractor, however: thermal conductivity leading to poor insulation. In combining aluminum and vinyl PVC — along with the added strength of galvanized steel — we sought to make a frame that’s stronger and more efficient than anything else on the market. We called it the Hybrid Fusion Frame.
How Our Hybrid Fusion Frame® technology leads to the most durable & secure replacement windows in Toronto:
- First, it has a rock-solid frame constructed from anodized aluminum and galvanized steel
- An outer surface of specially-formulated and patented U-PVC (unplasticized polyvinyl chloride)
- The long-lasting strength and support of galvanized steel and aluminum
- A durable and efficient vinyl frame that won’t expand and contract
- Finally, it’s a cost-effective, high-performance window frame material that we guarantee will last 40 years or more
2. We use a highly-rated locking system for ample security and peace of mind
Style, efficiency and durability all matter a great deal. But homeowners should also be 100% confident that their windows come standard with security features to keep them safe. We understand the priority and we have engineered our windows accordingly. In addition to the strength and durability of our frames, our products come with locking systems that homeowners feel comfortable with year after year.
Multi-Point Window Locks
This secure locking system holds the window in place in two or more places simultaneously. These locks grab the sash and push it firmly up against the frame.
Window Cam Locks
A cam locking mechanism consists of both a base and a cam. The cam sweeps or rotates on the base before latching onto the sash, holding it locked in place against the frame. Magic fashions both our cam and multipoint locking systems from stainless steel to ensure security and peace of mind. Consequently, products like our Window Wall have a grade-40 security rating — the highest attainable security rating for a product in its class.
3. Insulated, energy-efficient glass formulation keeps homes sealed against fluctuating Toronto and GTA weather
This may be a different type of security, but it’s nevertheless important. By formulating all our glass in-house, we ensure that every homeowner we work with is entirely satisfied with the performance of their windows. The customization of our glass allows us to maximize your windows’ performance in accordance with your specific preferences, climate, and home’s construction. That way, you get maximum energy efficiency, insulation and longevity out of your thermal units. Two of the most important factors in creating this efficiency and insulation are warm edge spacers and gas fills:
In order to improve a window’s U-Factor, the spaces between the panes of glass are filled with noble gases like krypton and argon. These heavier, noble gases are preferable to filling the unit with air because they can better impede the transfer of heat through a window.
Warm edge spacers are seals that insulate the edges of the window unit and keep the glass panes firmly apart from each other. This airtight seal protects against Air Leakage, condensation forming inside the panes and heat loss to help a window unit stay energy-efficient over the long term. These spacers add structural stability and mitigate the stress that comes with thermal expansion and contraction in different weather conditions. Certain spacer materials, such as Duralite®, are made of low-conductive, non-metal materials coated in a desiccant that absorbs moisture.
