FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Patented Glazing Keeps Rooms
Warmer in Winter, Cooler in Summer
Reduces Cleaning and Maintenance Chores
HOLBROOK, NY -- Four Seasons Sunrooms has revolutionized the sunroom industry once again
with the introduction of an exclusive and proprietary glazing product available only through
Four Seasons Sunrooms dealers, franchises and retail stores. CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ is an high
performance insulated glass product that assures Four Seasons will continue its dominance of
the leading edge of sunroom and glazing technology that has kept it the name in year-round
glass building additions for three decades. Now it adds Self-Cleaning Technology to its
already industry-leading energy conservation and durability features.
Glass that Virtually Cleans Itself
And now, Four Seasons has added additional consumer benefits to its glass with the addition
of Self-Cleaning Technology. Four Seasons CONSERVAGLASS SELECT with Self-Cleaning Technology
harnesses the power of the sun's UV rays to to loosen dirt so water can rinse it clear away,
leaving windows virtually spotless. Windows stay cleaner longer and clean easier. It's the
newest reason under the sun why Four Seasons CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ is superior to every
other sunroom glazing.
It's not magic, but close to it. A variety of different technologies go into making
CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ with Stay-Clean Technology, but the key technology, and the one that
helps windows stay cleaner longer, is the super thin coatings we apply to the outside of
the glass. These invisible, durable and permanent coatings of Titanium Dioxide and Silicon
Dioxide permanently enable CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ to stay cleaner longer.
KleenCoat II™: Clean Glass Starts with Ultra-Smooth Glass
Four Seasons CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ has two exterior coatings: KleenCoat II™ and Stay-Clean
Technology. KleenCoat II™ uses Silicon Dioxide to make CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ exceptionally
smooth. In fact, it's much smoother than ordinary glass, so water disperses evenly,
"sheets off" and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting on the glass.
Stay-Clean Technology: Titanium Dioxide and Rain Finish the Job
CONSERVAGLASS SELECT'TM Stay-Clean Technology utilizes Titanium Dioxide to react chemically
with the sun's UV rays, causing any organic materials on the glass to be decomposed.
It works even on cloudy days, as 80 percent of UV radiation gets through cloud cover.
Then, when it rains, the decomposed dirt is rinsed away, leaving the glass almost
spotless. The result is that Four Seasons Sunrooms owners spend less time
washing windows and more time enjoying the view.
Warmer in Winter, Cooler in Summer
Most people considering a large expanse of glass on their home only consider how it will
affect their comfort during the colder months, never considering the more important issue
of excessive heat during the warmer months. CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ effectively controls
winter heat loss and summer heat gain in a single glazing product.
"The most important consideration for the consumer considering a sunroom purchase is the
glass," James Ruppel, Four Seasons Sunrooms marketing director said. "After all, a sunroom
is, by definition, a room made of glass. Summer heat gain becomes just as important for
sunroom owners as winter heat loss. Consider, for example, how much heat builds up in your
car on a sunny day: The effect a large amount of glass can have on a home can spell
trouble -- unless that glass effectively controls the temperature during all four
seasons like Four Seasons' CONSERVAGLASS SELECT."
Four Seasons' exclusive CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ is made especially for the extreme demands of
a room of glass. It reduces the relative heat gain, glare and UV damage that competitors'
products can't effectively combat with regular low-e glazings. By using a combination
of microscopically thin coatings of exotic metals and compounds to let the beneficial
natural light of the sun into the room, while keeping out oppressive heat and damaging
UV light, CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ effectively reduces summer heat gain and reflects winter heat
back into the addition, enabling occupant comfort year-round.
Energy Efficient CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ = EnergyStar Qualification
The unique properties of Four Seasons' CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ has even enabled the company
to receive Energy Star qualification from the United States department of Energy on most
of its products' windows and doors. CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ has center of glass R-values as
high as R-4 – twice the insulating power of standard insulated glass. And while "ordinary"
high performance low-e glazings transmit 97 BTU/HR/SQ.FT. of Relative Heat Gain, Four
Seasons Sunrooms CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ transmits only 39 BTU/HR/SQ.FT. through its overhead
glazing. Imagine what that means to cooling costs in the summer!
The revolutionary coatings on the glass also reduce the glare and upholstery fading
associated with common insulated glass, while still maintaining its transparency. Sitting
in a Four Seasons Sunroom in the summer can be likened to sitting in the cool shade of a
leafy oak tree – without the mosquitoes and the ants!
Transferable Lifetime Warranty Maintains Value
Four Seasons Sunrooms CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ is not only amazing in its performance, but is
warranted to continue to perform well and not fail for a lifetime. CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ is

All Four Seasons' CONSERVAGLASS SELECT™ now comes standard with a temporary protective plastic

room is finished. This glass masking ensures that the room is clean and beautiful at the
end of the installation, without fingerprints or marks of any kind from shipping and
handling through installation on the jobsite.
