Award-winning, widely-recognized products

Cascadia’s real driving force behind their success is undoubtedly “green” innovation. No other Canadian green company has earned the same caliber of technical accolades and recognition for innovation in such a short period of time. Within eight years, Cascadia has been acclaimed with multiple national and international innovation awards for its cutting edge technologies. Cascadia has been instrumental in providing state-of-the-art products to some of the most energy efficient and award winning building projects in the world.

Cascadia has developed revolutionary fiberglass window products and exterior insulation products that vastly increase a building’s energy efficiency. Most recently, Cascadia developed the first commercial-grade, all-fiberglass, Passive House performance level window in the world.

Fiberglass Windows and Doors
Cascadia’s windows and doors are premium level products that incorporate industry leading thermal efficiency, durability, and physical performance. These advantages are a blend of desirable material characteristics, innovative engineering and design. Cascadia’s window and door products are ideal for almost every application (particularly in demanding environments) from large institutional buildings-to high-rises-to high-end homes.
 
Cascadia windows and doors have some of the best energy efficiency ratings in the industry. These products have been used in various key projects including the CMHC “Harmony House Project”, which is the first truly Net-Zero home on the west coast of North America.
 
 
Fiberglass Cladding Support Systems
Cascadia invented and developed the “Cascadia Clip”, which is the original thermally efficient cladding support system for exterior insulated wall assemblies. The Cascadia Clip is made of lowconductivity material (fiberglass), which virtually eliminates the thermal bridging and related degradation of effective thermal insulation levels that industry’s current steel cladding supports cause.
 
The latest building codes demand higher thermal performance from buildings than ever before. The ASHRAE 90.1 standard is referenced by building codes as the required performance standard for large building envelopes to meet which has stringent insulation requirements. These requirements are no longer achievable using traditional (or “industry standard”) wall assemblies. The Cascadia Clip System can assist in achieving these new code requirements. 
 
The use of the spacers is cost neutral to conventional continuous steel girt systems and provides an exterior wall that insulates at least twice as well as the industry standard approach which yields energy savings for building owners for the life of the building.
