Universal Series
The Cascadia Universal Series is a new all-fiberglass system showcasing the latest in energy efficient window and door technology. Deliveries began for windows in mid-2017, and doors mid-2018. Patented, and patents pending.

Description

The vision for the Universal Series product line started in 2016.  It evolved as a complete window and door product line to embody uncompromising 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)
  • NAFS AW Performance Class designation (casements, awnings & fixed windows)
  • 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)

Sliding (Tilt & Slide): single or double sashes, configured as OX, OXO, OXXO
