About SOLARSTAR AWNING WINDOW

This SolarStar series introduced in 2011 is the latest evolution of the awning window system for which Solaris has become renown. A unique Solaris design, these windows are available in a 4 5/8″ or 6 5/8″ frame with the advantage of a recessed sash located within the insulated part of the wall. This unique feature, combined with a multiple air chamber design, considerably reduces heat loss and condensation.

Even on rainy days, you can enjoy a excellent ventilation through its opening from bottom to top and conserve the same excellent performance as a casement window.

The frame and sash have fusion-welded corner joints to prevent air and/or water infiltration, as well as a combination of three replacable weather-strips on the sash. Glazing beads for the sealed glazed units are situated on the inside for added security. These can be easily removed to replace a glazed unit.

The frame and sash on the SolarStar series are constructed of high impact resistant PVC that complies with all North American standards.
