PVC windows


About the double hung SolarStar window

The SolarStar double-hung window combines elegance and strength. Designed by our experienced team, the frame and sashes are fusion-welded to ensure a complete seal. This window is characterized by a fusion-welded flat sill with a slope of 10 degrees and a weight balance system ensuring constant smoothness and ease of operation of the sash. Regardless of the location of the window, maintenance and cleaning are easier thanks to both sashes that can be tilted inward. Our unique extruded PVC has multiple air chambers providing excellent insulation and greater resistance to condensation.

The SolarStar system includes three mohair-pile weather-strips on the sashes (horizontal and vertical installation) and a weather-stripping with a freeze-proof air cushion weather-strip at the bottom of the lower sash. The colonial-style glazing beads are sealed inside and equipped with a flexible co-extrusion with excellent protection against air and water infiltration. They also allow easy replacement of sealed glazed units from inside your home.

The SolarStar series frame and sashes are manufactured of highly resistant PVC according to North American Standards.
