NASF performance standard
All of our products are designed to match or surpass the new NAFS-11 Canadian standard, which addresses minimal requirements for resistance to air, water and wind pressure. This norm may vary in function of your house's geographical position and features. You can count on one of our representatives to describe the standard relevant to your situation and thus, recommend the right product.
Here is an example of a NAFS-11 standard for one of our casement windows
LC-PG-70-C Class | Tested dimension: 914 mm x 1829 mm (36 x 72 inches)
|Positive pressure calculation|
|Negative pressure calculation|
|Water penetration resistance pressure test||Canadian infiltration level / air exfiltration|

||-3360 Pa (-70.18 psf)
||720 Pa (15.04 psf)
Results according to the AAMA/WDMA/CSA 101/I.S.2/A440-08 and CSA-A440S1-09 standard.
ENERGY STAR CERTIFICATION
All of our products are Energy Star certified, which confirms that our windows and doors meet or surpass the energy efficiency requirements (ER rating). To achieve this result, we dedicate our attention to every detail, from designing to manufacturing.
For example, with our IsoPro collection, the Intercept® spacer bar that separates the glass panes is a high quality product that improves the energy efficiency of the sealed unit.
Choice of glazing (thermos)
The principle behind energy-efficient glass is quite simple and effective: a fine low emissivity coating (Low-E) is added to the glazing, which contributes to keeping warmth inside the house during cold weather and to block the sunrays when it is hot.
For all regions of Quebec, the choice of energyefficient glass is profitable. Choosing triple glass is the optimal decision.
