It’s important when looking at any renovation in your home that you use only the highest quality products. Simonton has been an industry leader in the window business for over 70 years.
Simonton Platinum Windows Reviews The Prism Platinum Simonton window is the top-of-the-line Prism Series window as well as being practically indistinguishable from the Reflections 5500 window. Typically, the Prism Series is sold on the East Coast and the Reflections on the West, but this is not always the case. The Prism Platinum has a nice look and straight sightlines, which give it a very sleek and streamlined look.
The window comes standard with the following: interlocking meeting rail, 7/8″ insulating glass unit, stepped sill, tilt-in sash, and integrated lift sash rail. In addition, it uses argon fills, ProSolar Low-e glass, an intercept spacer, and a fiberglass mesh screen. Exterior frame options include cream, chocolate, driftwood, pine, bronze, brick, and tan. In terms of hardware, there are three options: oil-rubbed bronze, brushed nickel, and polished brass. The Prism Platinum series, just like the Reflections 5500 series, is a solid vinyl window that is one of the best from this very well known manufacturer.
Simonton Reflections 5500 Series Colors
Standard Colors Like many other premium window makers, the Simonton Reflections 5500 Series window is available in standard white and tan colors. Unlike many, however, these windows are also available in the third standard “driftwood” color. This color could be called clay by other window manufactures since they are so close in color. Exterior colors may be a little more adventurous, although we don’t suggest doing the custom exterior colors. At Woodlands Windows we tell all of our customers when it comes to vinyl, you do not want dark colors. You should not paint your vinyl windows either. Simonton offers a laminate for their windows exteriors and don’t seem to be afraid of dark colors. If you decide to risk dark colors such as chocolate and bronze, Simonton offers one of the most respected guarantees on the market.

Simonton Windows has some of the best Insulated Glass and insulated glass Unit Spacer Systems. Three unique spacer systems are utilized in the Platinum Line glass packages. The Intercept® spacer system offers a U-channel design that keeps glass warmer and flexes and contracts for reduced seal failure. The Supercept™ spacer utilizes the U-channel design but is made of a stainless steel alloy that offers increased durability and thermal efficiency. The non-metallic foam Super Spacer® is non-conductive and increases energy efficiency by providing an airtight seal.
