Basement 5600 and 2200

Basements need fresh air, too. Whether you’re looking to bring fresh air into your recreation room, need pass-through space for large objects or have to meet fire escape codes, we have the basement window to meet your needs.

For those looking for greater energy efficiency, our 5600 series is now available in a triple pane option. Upgraded from our dual pane slider, the triple pane offers the same amazing features as the dual – two operating sliders that help meet fire code and ratings and removable sashes to make cleaning a breeze – now with the ENERGY STAR® qualification.

The 5600 series also offers greater airflow control with double sliders that open from either side. Both sashes are easily removed for cleaning and can leave a larger opening if needed.

Our 2200 series is available in a Top Hinge Hung (Hopper) style basement window that opens completely, allowing ultimate airflow control and a wide opening to pass items through. This window also helps meet fire escape egress codes for smaller-sized units.

ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

OPERATING STYLES

When choosing a window, you want something that suits the personality of your home while meeting performance needs for your climate. Select something that suits your home’s style, has the energy efficiency performance you need and can withstand the weather conditions in your city. Remember, the more severe the weather, the better performance you’ll need for your windows. If you’re considering something more distinctive, we can help you create a unique combination of windows to suit your home.

Hopper

The top sash of our hopper windows swings inward, leaving a wide space for ultimate ventilation. Meet fire escape egress codes with the hopper window’s wide-profile opening.

Sliders

Take control of your home’s airflow with a slider window—these windows slide open horizontally, leaving you to decide just how much ventilation you need.

COLOURS & FINISHES

Select a frame colour to match your home’s exterior. Keep it simple with a classic, elegant frame or enhance curb appeal with the addition of grilles or exterior brickmould (available depending on window series).

Options and finishes for window hardware are also available for most of our window series.

GLASS

Good design and correct installation are important factors in ensuring energy efficient windows, but glass performance plays the biggest role. Different glass options have different benefits so, before choosing your glass, be sure to consider the weather conditions of where you live. Colder climates will require more insulation power and specific glass coatings to improve energy efficiency.

Did you know? ENERGY STAR® certified windows can reduce your energy costs by up to 16%.

ENERGY EFFICIENT GLASS OPTIONS

Argon Gas

Argon gas is an inert gas—non-toxic, clear and odourless. Used to fill the space between panes of glass, it minimizes convective currents reduces the chance of glass collecting frost on cold winter days.

Dual Clear Glass

Two panes of glass with no special coating applied. The panes are spaced a ½ inch apart and the air between the panes acts as an insulation barrier, making your windows more energy efficient.

Low-E

Low-E (low emissivity) is a clear coating that reduces heat loss by reflecting furnace heat back into a room, allowing lots of outside solar energy to pass into your home. In winter, it can even reduce the demands on your furnace. Low-E can offer 35%-105% better insulation when combined with dual/triple pane glass.

SunStop

SunStop uses two layers of Low-E coating to block out the sun’s heat, light and UV rays. Perfect for south and west-facing windows, this coating keeps your home cool in the summer and warmer in the winter with superior insulation performance.

GLASS PERFORMANCE

GLASS PERFORMANCE CHART

All performance ratings are imperial for Centre of Glass (C.O.G.) and are based on Vision v4.0 simulations. All C.O.G U-and R- values are based on ASHREA Winter Conditions. Framing, cladding, frame type and other items will affect the overall thermal values of a complete window.
