Standard window features
Exterior finish & grill colours
North Star window exteriors come in eight UV-resistant colors – white, sandalwood, ivory, hickory, chestnut, cocoa, espresso and sable.
Interior finish & grill colours
North Star window interiors include: white, and the simulated embossed wood grain textures of Canadian oak and natural oak finishes. Inside window grill options are also available in metallic, pewter or brass finishes.
Between the glass (BTG) grilles are encased between the two panes of insulating glass, leaving a smooth surface that’s easy to clean.
Simulated divided lites (SDL) grilles look like traditional divided light grilles, but offer the outstanding performance of our energy-efficient windows. SDL grilles are applied to the outer sides of the insulated glass for a more traditional profile – inside and out.
Traditional or contemporary grills are available in three profiles.
Colours and finishes shown may vary from screen to screen.

North Star Windows offer a variety of glass options that can enhance both the beauty and performance of your windows, including:
Cuts down on the amount of glare and heat entering a building
LOF (Libby Owens Ford)
LOF – Pilkington Energy Advantage Low-E is the best glass for most applications in a northern climate. It has a very high retention rate of the heat in your home in winter and prevents heat gain in summer. Energy Advantage Glass has a higher Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) than Low-E glass designed for southern climates. It provides free winter heat for your home. Since as much as 95% of your energy expense for heating and cooling combined is for heating, this glass is more cost effective than other glass without a high SHGC.
LoE 366 – Is recommended when cooling costs outweigh heating costs in your energy usage, or where summer discomfort from heat build-up should be an important concern. This is the best glass for most applications in a southern climate. It has a very high reflection rate of the radiant outside heat to prevent heat gain in summer and in winter it still retains radiant once you turn on your furnace! LoE 366 has a lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) in order to minimize Solar Heat Gain that results in extra work for your air conditioning unit.
Argon gas filled
Thermal performance is improved by replacing the air between the panes of a window with Argon gas, an inert, slow-moving gas. Argon gas helps prevent heat loss to improve energy efficiency.
Krypton gas filled
Krypton gas is an inert, slow-moving gas that improves thermal performance. Denser than Argon, Krypton gas does an excellent job of preventing heat loss. Available exclusively in North Star triple-glazed windows.
RE 29 double glazed
RE 39 triple glazed
Obscure glass provides an effective shield without shutting out the sun. It is particularly useful for bathrooms, basements or along walkways. North Star offers obscure glass in frosted or glue chip patterns
