North Star’s high-performance windows and doors are designed to hold in those comfortable inside temperatures your family enjoys, keeping out the cold, wet and summer’s heat. North Star Windows come with a number of standard features, options and accessories which is why Jans Awning Products loves to sell North Star Windows in Burlington, Oakville, and the surrounding areas.
Standard North Star Windows Features
Super Spacer – Super Spacer S Class construction between glass panes resists condensation, reduces noise and boosts insulation values by up to 30%.
Energy Advantage™ Low-E – Energy Advantage Low-E is a high performance, energy-efficient glass made with a coating that is designed for top performance in our northern climate, which is why it can rate highest on the Canadian Energy Rating. Energy Advantage Low-E glass allows the sun’s energy to warm your home in the winter.
Fusion Welded – The corners on all North Star frames and sashes are fusion welded for added strength and a perfect seal.
Slider, Single- and Double-Hung Features
Screen Pulls – Durable pull tabs take the struggle out of removing window screens. These tabs are available in colours that match North Star’s windows.
Recessed Finger Latch – A simple, concealed latching system that is easy to operate, yet offers superior security.
Casement, Awning and Picture Features
Contoured Glazing Stop – Interior contoured glazing stop with miter-cut corners for clean lines that complement any room.
Exterior Bevelled Frames – Attractive exterior frames feature a traditional looking bevelled profile.
EZ-Screen – North Star’s innovative EZ-Screen comes standard in all Casement and Awning windows. Featuring a completely hidden retention system, EZ-Screen has smooth edges that won’t snag on draperies and is incredibly easy to use – just push-down and pull-out!
North Star offers a range of accessory options, including wood or vinyl jamb extensions that make a seamless transition from the window frame to your interior finish. Exterior accessories include brickmold with built in sliding J-channel and nail fins for ease of installation and a weather-tight seal to the outdoors. For a refined architectural look, add our 2” brickmold with cap. A 2” x ½” extrusion is also available that can be used as either a sill extension or a brickmold for a more contemporary look.
North Star Windows Doors Glass Options
Pilkington Activ™ Self-Cleaning Glass is available in every North Star window. Self-cleaning glass uses sunlight as a catalyst to naturally break down organic dirt and dust. North Star's special self-cleaning glass harnesses the power of the rain to spread across the surface, and flush away dirt particles, all in a manner that water spots are never left behind.
Other glass options include:
- Argon and Krypton gas filled for improved insulation.
- Bronze- and gray-tint glass
- Obscure glass
- Tempered glass
- Triple glazing
Hardware and locks used in North Star’s windows are easy to use, secure and come with a lifetime warranty. Optional self-locking hardware provides homeowners even greater security and peace of mind, and optional fold-down handles on our casement and awning windows lie flatter than traditional handles and allow window treatments to close neatly.
