Exterior Capstock Colours
At Big City we understand how important it is for homeowners to be able to choose exterior patio door colours for their home other than white. We also realize that durability is essential. We were one of the very few companies in North America who invested in the extruded Capstock colour technology from Europe as early as 1998. Our Capstock colour bonding system co-extrudes a solid PVC colour onto our extrusions that bonds directly with the uPVC vinyl frame. We saw this as being a critical element in finish durability in our North America climates. The Capstock process ensures: Durability, Colour Retention, Stain and Scratch Resistance, Gloss Control and Impact Retention. Our Capstock colours are available in four choices of colour: Brown, Ivory, Sandalwood and Sandstone.
Standard Paint Colour Options
We offer 18 water-based, environmentally friendly exterior paint colour choices that are both weather and fade-resistant.
Stainable Woodgrain Laminate (ready to stain)
This laminate is a stainable oak grain laminate which can be stained a variety of colours or can be custom stained to match a desired finish.
Hardware/ Multipoint Automatic Lock (Lever Set Handles)
These lever set handles provides the same security as our Automatic Multipoint Locking System shown in the Grip Set system below.
The Lever Set handles which are designed for use on Front doors, French doors or Patio Swing doors are available in various series and in Antique Brass, Polished Brass, Dark Bronze and Satin Nickel finishes.
Big City's unique approach to customizing the comfort and performance in your home is evident with the extensive selection of glass options allowing you to satisfy every consideration. Our glazing options provide you with maximum energy efficiency in all four seasons. Tempered glass and double laminated (used for custom sizes) are standard on the Ultra Patio Door Sliding Collection.
Big City has upgraded our glass with the latest technology, so when the weather turns frigid, LoĒ-180™ glass is the perfect cold remedy. It provides excellent insulating capability, blocking heat loss to the outside and reflecting heat back into the room plus it allows the winter sun's heat to pass into the home. The dramatic improvement in comfort from windows with warm glass surfaces also means the relative humidity of the indoor air can be controlled and maintained properly. The better insulated the window glass, the warmer your room will be.
Neat® Naturally Clean Glass
Big City introduces Neat® naturally clean glass. It harnesses the sun's UV rays to loosen dirt so water can rinse it away, leaving windows virtually spotless. Your windows will stay cleaner longer and will clean easier.
Homeowners and builders will enjoy the effects that a little sun, rain and Neat glass brings to windows. Not only that, because Neat is applied to Big City's LoĒ® 180 coated glazings, homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
