Big City's Recommendations for Glazing
All of our glazing options are in compliance with the Energy Star requirements that apply in Canada. This is important, since you can be assured that your casement fixed windows provide the best in energy efficiency. We enhance that efficiency by applying gas into the glass at the time we seal the unit. Combined with our Super Spacer technology, you can bet that heat and cold transference throughout the year is kept to a minimum. Our glazing also minimizes outside noise and enhances your home's security. Talk with us about tinting options that will provide privacy and improve the look of the home.
What does this mean in terms of saving on energy costs? Older and less efficient doors and windows could increase your annual heating and cooling expenses by as much as 40%. Think of what you could do with those savings each year.

Big City's Grilles & Divided Lites Solutions
Would you like to include grilles in your fixed window design? Grilles do add a touch of elegance and Old World charm that many people love. At Big City, we offer grille options that may be applied to the exterior side of the glass as well as grilles that are placed in between the glass layers. We can include several styles of grilles in any of our fixed windows sizes.
If you like the idea of adding some type of exterior grille to the window design, we recommend taking a look at the exterior Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) option. While providing the look of multiple panes held in place by the grille, it's actually a single glass unit with the grille applied to the exterior side. You can go with classic shades or come up with a custom colour that works with your home's facade.
If an interior grille is more to your liking, let us help you settle on a grille design that's installed between the layers of insulated glass. You still have options in terms of size, shape, and colour. Match the grille with any of our glass panels, which range from tinted or grooved to leaded or beveled. you can even choose a patina that's also placed in between the double or triple panes used for your fixed window replacement.
