We use Cardinal because they work with us to design and fabricate the most advanced residential glass products in the industry.

That's where Endur IGâ„¢ excels. Endur IG continues the Cardinal tradition of long-term performance. It delivers the industry's lowest seal failure rate and outstanding thermal performance and solar control.
Endur IG is built on the proven technologies that help Cardinal IG units achieve the industry's lowest failure rate - only 0.20% over twenty years - allowing Minnkota Windows to offer a lifetime warranty on insulated glass units. The lifetime warranty INCLUDES LABOR for twenty years!
