Affinity Series Range

Affinity offers three series with Elite being the top of the range. Then there is the Advantage and the Element. Each of these are designed on the same frame design with sash extrusion. As you can expect with each one as the price lowers so does all the additional features and options. I have years of experience installing both the Advantage and Elite series and find they are both offer superior value. They offer a .080 extrusion, weather stripping, super spaced glazing and top quality hardware all with foam filled frames.

When leaving my home county I find many homeowners more willing to invest more money in their windows using Okna, Sunrise or certainly Soft-Lite. The ideal products don't offer the triple weatherproofing. Castle is another good name and have been around since 1964."

I would recommend the Okna 800 with their magnetic seals and their sash interlock and reinforcement. Don't get me wrong though Affinity is a good window if you don't want to pay the price for the Okna windows.

Affinity & Okna

Not many people will state that the Affinity is a better choice than Okna, though I really do like the Affinity. Okna 500's have good numbers compared to Affinity windows. With an AI of .02 for the Okna 500, Affinity cannot compare, never mind that the Okna can manage high wind speeds. When it comes to U-Factors the Affinity has a .27, while the Okna has a .25. The Affinity double panes have better U-Factor numbers all the way down to .22 if you use their low-E glass package with hard coat. The problem with this is that hard coat tends to cause unwelcome glares and scratches really easily. The Affinity model offers plastic screens with squared corners while the Okna uses a forty five degree which makes them look stylish.
