AS A MATTER OF A FACT – OUR WINDOWS ARE THE BEST!

banner_window
Super Spacer Technology reduces condensation, noise and boosts energy ratings. Every sash and frame corner is fusion welded for strength and a perfect seal, and our multi-chambered vinyl extrusions resist warping, cracking and peeling – and never need to be painted. North Star backs every window with a transferable, limited lifetime warranty.

NORTH STAR COMMITMENT

North Star is committed to providing consumers with great windows, designed for attractiveness and style; engineered for durability and efficiency; and at prices that truly reflect good value. Our integrated manufacturing process utilizes the latest engineering technology and consistently exceeds industry standards.

SUPER SPACER
Super Spacer S Class construction between glass panes resists condensation, reduces outside noise and boosts insulation values by as much as 30%. Super Spacer Warm-edge technology works at the edge of the glass where windows are vulnerable, providing superior thermal performance. Low E Standard in every North Star window, specially treated Low-E glass minimizes heat loss in winter and heat gain during summer.

horizhoriz2HORIZONTAL SLIDING
Horizontal sliders provide effective ventilation and fingertip operation over a wide range of openings. North Star’s three-lite slider with center vent or end vent operators covers extra wide openings, or replaces several windows with the bonus of extra sunlight. Double tilt-in sliders have multi-directional locking shoes so sashes stay in place for room-side cleaning.


vertslidvert2VERTICAL SLIDING
Single and double vertical sliders deliver traditional double-hung beauty with improved security, lower maintenance and higher energy efficiency. Spring-balanced movement and tilt-in sashes offer ease of motion while Low-e glass, triple weatherstripping and Super Spacer technology withstand extreme heat and cold.

Almost any opening can become an instant greenhouse or relaxing nook with a striking bow window. With the same head and seat options as the bay window you can choose which design best suits your home.

Nothing beats the slim, clean lines of a picture window for large, clear sightlines. Standard Low-e glass and Super Spacer technology create one of our most energy efficient and economical window styles. Order with sash for a uniform profile when combining these with operating casements and awnings.

INDUSTRY STANDARDS NORTH STAR’S WINDOWS MEET:

The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) established the CSA-A440 standard as a sort of a final exam – it doesn’t matter how good you say your windows are because now there’s evidence. The CSA-A440 standard measures and rates windows for airtightness, watertightness and wind resistance, and even evaluates a window’s susceptibility to forced entry. All North Star windows have been tested – and the excellent results speak for themselves. Be wary of windows that have not been tested to CSA-A440 standards.

Our windows are also CSA certified, which means that they are not only tested according to the standard, but are certified by CSA. Random CSA audits ensure that the windows we manufacture are identical to those tested according to the CSA standard and match the performance of the test windows.
