testing of typical window asseblies
« on: March 25, 2012, 01:39:47 AM »

I would like to know where to get lab testing data comparing typical windows; for example, comparing wood to vinyl with same size windows and thicknesses.  Then adding a secondary singe pane window and comparing the graphs, and using different thicknesses of glass, plasic, or laminate and such.  Now, I'm guessing the situation would be the same as for a wall, with the double windows resulting in a higher stc but with sharp coincidence dips; I just would like to actually SEE the data rather than speculating about it.

There is some data readily available, but generally they don't compare wood vs. vinyl vs. composite, etc..
