The Cascadia Universal Series is a new all-fiberglass system showcasing the latest in energy efficient window and door technology. Deliveries have begun for windows in Summer 2017, and will begin for doors in the 2nd quarter of 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. The final design improves upon 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 International - including Canada - certified thermal performance (PHI)
  • Passive House Institute US certified thermal performance (PHIUS)
  • Commercial grade strength and sizes
  • Inward and outward operation in one system
  • LBC Red-List Free

Configuration Options

Inswing Windows Tilt & turn, inswing casement, hopper
Outswing Windows  Casement, awning
Doors

Inswing (single or double), Outswing (single or double)
