Atrium 8500 Windows Reviews
The Atrium 8500 window is one of the mid range vinyl option from Atrium. The 8500 Series uses the same frame as their low end and now discontinued 5600 Series, but has several nice upgrades, including a sloped sill, beveled mainframe, air latch and vents. The 8501 gets pretty decent performance numbers and is all in all a decent window, although much less well known window compared to the Atrium 8900 series and the Atrium 8300 window.
Standard features include a 7/8" insulated glass, a beveled exterior frame, a constant force balancing system, dual weather-stripping and an integrated lift rail. As well, the window has an aluminum reinforced sash, sloped sill, deluxe cam lock, interlocking sashes, and a half screen. The window can be ordered in white or almond on either the inside or outside.
