New Innovision(TM) Windows Offer Unparalleled Structural Integrity, Strength and Resistance to Extreme Environmental Conditions

TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 6 / -- Owens Corning (NYSE:OC), today introduced Innovision(TM) fiberglass windows. Developed to meet the demands of extreme environments, Innovision windows feature the first fully bonded frame and sash in the industry manufactured without mechanical fasteners.

A high impact structural mull adhesive is injected into the frame and sash corners of Innovision windows to create a permanent, air- and water-tight joint for long term stability and reliable performance. The result is a window that:

-- is designed for use in residential or commercial applications.
-- has strong and secure corner joinery for unparalleled structural integrity.
-- delivers design pressure ratings of up to 142.5.
-- is well suited for extreme environmental conditions.

"Fiberglass represents growth in the window industry and with Innovision windows, Owens Corning is combining the power of the leader in fiberglass building science with unparalleled performance," said Todd Hall, business manager, Owens Corning Construction Services. "Innovision windows offer the energy efficiency, durability and aesthetics homeowners demand and commercial contractors require for energy efficient building renovation.

Innovision Window Advantages
Innovision windows come standard with a high performance low-E, argon filled, double-pane insulated glass system complemented by three optional glass packages designed for early morning sun, all-day sun or intense heat exposure, and include multiple low-E coatings, inert gas and solar-reflective Heat Mirror(TM) film from Southwall Technologies. Innovision window dealers are trained on directional solar tuning to help buyers select the right window and the right glass for their specific exposures for maximum comfort and energy efficiency all day, every day.

Innovision windows are offered in a complete range of styles and a variety of popular solid or split frame colors and five interior woodgrain options to coordinate with a multitude of different design requirements.

When used in residential replacement applications, Innovision windows are eligible for a federal income tax credit of 30 percent of the cost of the windows and doors, up to $5,000, for a possible $1,500 credit through 2010.

Innovision windows are backed by a lifetime limited, non-prorated and transferable warranty.
