Universal Series
The Cascadia Universal Series is a new all-fiberglass system showcasing the latest in energy efficient window and door technology. Deliveries have already started for windows this summer, and will begin for doors in early 2018. Patented, and patents pending.

Description

The Universal Series was designed in 2016 to uncompromising design intents for thermal performance, structural capacity, aesthetics, hardware flexibility, site tolerance, cost, and ease of manufacturing. We have finalized our design and improved on our classic windows in every one of these areas. In addition to covering all the functions of our window lines in one, the Universal Series has the following benefits:
 
  • Passive House Institue US certified thermal performance.
  • Passive House International Certification completing in late 2017 / early 2018.
  • Commercial grade strength and sizes
  • Inward and outward operation in one system
  • LBC Red-List Free
