For Vintage Windows, Winterize Windows with the SLIP™ (Slim Line Insulating Pane), an innovative and cost-effective way to retain your original Old Windows, while making them more efficient and saving you money. SLIPs are designed to update single-pane wood windows to modern standards. We have made it possible to add an additional pane directly to each sash overlaying your current glass setup. This simple solution can rejuvenate Single hung, double hung, casements, picture windows and more. When SLIPs are added to operating windows the sash are kerfed and weatherstripped. Doublehungs are installed with a hidden balance system which results in a smooth operating window that you don’t have to fight with.This modernization is a long term solution that does not seasonally need to be reinstalled.
A SLIP™ will dramatically boost insulation power in your windows and will bring great savings to your month to month energy bills. In terms of insulation power, SLIPs have been tested and are comparable with insulated glass conversions. However, unlike glass conversions, SLIPs will not succumb to seal failure and require periodic glass replacement.
SLIPs are highly effective, well designed and well-priced, giving you superior value when compared to alternatives. Modern storm windows can be big bulky and a hassle. SLIPs have a sleek look and feel with a low profile that blend into the sash; you’ll hardly know they are there. Another key aspect is that SLIPs will ensure your window sash remains fully operable, without the need to open two sets of windows as you sometimes get with storm windows. You’ll retain FULL functionality without having to alter your vintage glass.
Some of the benefits of the SLIP:
Increased energy efficiency
Less expensive than a window/IGU replacement
Maintains original window glass
Windows can stay historically accurate and functional
Solid, well-designed construction and material
interior or exterior install
Options of Clear, Tinted, or Low-e
Tested and proven product
Extremely low future maintenance cost
When attaching the product directly to the sash it gives the window insulating properties without replacing or altering the original glass. Not only do we believe that SLIPs are a better alternative to the traditional storm window or inserts, we think in many cases they are a favored alternative to insulated glass conversions. This is because homeowners can keep their original vintage and wavy glass, drastically increase insulation, AND have lower future costs of upkeep…
….The future maintenance costs of SLIPs are little to none. Since SLIPs have air vents and are not true insulated glass units, they will not fail and require replacing like true Insulated glass units are known to do.
