Because fiberglass frames don’t typically require thermal breaks or reinforcing steel, the frame section is deep enough to accommodate premium hardware. Our product line includes sophisticated operable mechanisms such as European style Tilt-n-Turn, as well as traditional awning, casement and sliding styles. Many of our series also feature multi-point lock bars, eliminating the need for high cam handles to make windows more accessible and easier to operate, with less handle rotations.
We proudly use Roto hardware almost exclusively, and also offer premium handles made by Hoppe and others. Almost all of the hardware we use is stainless steel, and our windows and doors are assembled by hand and submitted to rigorous quality control inspections, so we can ensure that our products will operate smoothly for decades to come.
Our hardware isn't just about beautiful handles and reliable function; hinge systems enable windows to provide a path of escape in the case of a fire. Building codes require egress compliant window openings in non-sprinklered, low-rise, wood-frame residential buildings. Minimum egress sizes vary from one Cascadia series to another, and are described in more detail below.
