How To Buy

Design Series

Features & Benefits

  • The elegance of metal clad combined with the durability and low maintenance of vinyl. Available in white vinyl or with one of our Fusion Colour Wrap laminated interiors to match your colour scheme.
  • Fully extruded aluminum cladding available in a variety of colours. Enhanced Colour Protection (ECP) – which utilizes acroflur paint, a Kynar® based coating – is added to darker colours to resist fading and chalking.
  • Steel reinforcement is added within vinyl components to provide necessary structural rigidity.
  • Continuous head and sill design ensures a watertight frame, a continuous nailing fin, and stronger configurations compared to mulled systems.
  • Designed for thermal performance equivalent to, or in excess of, traditional vinyl windows.Extruded gaskets separate metal from glass to block thermal transfer. Air boundaries between aluminum and vinyl create optimal thermal performance.
  • Double glazing or triple glazing available with a variety of glass options to maximize energy efficiency.
  • Sleek Truth Encore® folding hardware available. Choose from multiple grille types in an array of colours and patterns. Make your windows more prominent with optional 2-inch exterior brickmould.

ECO GAIN 180 High Solar Gain Glass

When the weather turns frigid, Eco Gain 180 is the perfect cold remedy! Eco Gain 180 provides excellent insulating capability by blocking heat loss to the outside and reflecting heat back into the room. It is the ideal glass for passive solar applications as it allows the winter sun’s heat to pass into the home and provide “free heat.” It also blocks 76% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

ECO SHIELD 270 Solar Control Glass

When it comes to solar control, the sun does not stand a chance against Eco Shield 270. It is the perfect glass for fighting the heat. Eco Shield 270 reduces solar heat gain by 50% or more compared to ordinary glass in the summer and keeps homes cozy by blocking heat loss in the winter. It blocks 86% of the sun’s UV rays yet lets light stream in due to its exceptional clarity without a heavy bronze or smoke colored tint to spoil the image.

ECO MAX SHIELD 366 Ultimate Performance Glass

Eco Max Shield 366 has been specially formulated to reject the summer sun’s heat without affecting the view. It lets more light in and keeps more heat out so homes stay cool and comfortable – with no room-darkening tints and virtually no exterior reflectance. The ultimate in solar control and clarity! Eco Max Shield 366 provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect glass no matter where you live. It sports an unprecedented three layers of silver which reduce solar gain, reflect furnace heat back into the room and let light stream in.
