2. UV stability refers to discoloring of the block, or in this case the lack of discoloring.

3. ASTM D1435 simulates 3 years if Arizona exposure.

Hy-Lite windows have been engineered, tested and refined to meet performance standards in various regions across the United States. Hy-Lite windows have been tested by independent laboratories for air and water infiltration, energy efficiency, UV protection, solar heat gain, structural performance and many other significant tests. Hy-Lite windows not only meet the performance standards in different regions, they often exceed them.
