KP Windows Proprietary Vertex High-Performance Glass Technology Is Engineered To Provide Superior Thermal Efficiency, Superior Glass Clarity And Superior Air Infiltration Protection.
A component of Vertex 3
Ēvolv Glass Technology is a coating placed on the 4th glass surface (interior of the house) that redirects escaping heat back into the home. Not only does ēvolv greatly increase a window’s U-Value, but it offers better light transmittance and less reflectance. Using ēvolv will allow a double pane window to match nearly triple pane performance.
- Triple pane performance with double pane glass
- Outperforms the industry average by 29% in energy efficiency
- Better light transmittance
- All windows meet the Energy Star standards
- Less wear and tear than heavy triple pane sashes
- Less size limitations

Textured Glass Options:
Textured glass options – including satin, frosted, and glue chip – are great for improved privacy! These options are great for bathrooms, ground floor and basement windows, or other rooms which require permanent privacy.
Tinted Glass Options:
Glass tints – including grey and bronze – help to control glare and add some privacy during the day by lending colour and exterior shine to the glass, reducing visibility from the exterior; tinted glass provides little to-no privacy at night. Tinted glass also provides a unique, modern aesthetic.
What is Triple Glass?
Triple glass features a glass unit which is composed of three panes of glass, as opposed to our standard two panes. Just as our dual-pane glass, the panes of glass are separated by a ‘spacer bar’ and sealed with argon gas between the glass. Triple glass was created to address efficiency in extreme climates like the Canadian north.
- Extremely energy efficient
- Perfect for use in extreme climates
- Triple Sol-R Gain with Double Low-E Argon improves ER Value by 6% over our standard Dual Pane Low-E Argon
- Triple Sol-R Shield with Double Low-E Argon improves R Value by 33% over our standard Dual Pane Low-E Argon
- Triple Sol-R Shield with Double Low-E Argon improves U Value by 33% over our standard Dual Pane Low-E Argon

Brickmould is an exterior trim which frames the window like a picture frame. Functionally, it is used to fill the gap between the window and the exterior surface (stone, siding, etc.); aesthetically, it lends the home a richer look.
All of our casement and awning windows feature premium Truth® Encore operators*. Not only does the Truth® Encore handle fold in, it also features a nesting cover so that the handle actually recesses and will not interfere with your window coverings! The Encore operator functions smoothly and requires up to 33% less effort to operate than other models.

Simulated Divided Lites
Greenview SDL (Simulated Divided Lites) are engineered grille solutions for a variety of clients and applications (manufacturers, fabricators, distributors, dealers and architects) where assured quality and value come together. They give your grilles a classic, divided light look for rectangular patterns – bringing continuous horizontal and vertical bar components together. Plus you can choose from a variety of non-rectangular shapes – or let us create your custom look.
Grilles are made of aluminum and are installed between the panes of glass (meaning you never have to dust them!) and are used solely for aesthetic purposes. Grilles can be used to match your home’s existing windows or to customize the look of your home.
Interior Finish Options
The depth of your window is rarely the exact depth of your wall. To match the depth of your wall from the interior, a jamb extension is used. The jamb extension is available in a number of materials and fits into a receiving channel located in the window frame, providing a seamless transition between your window and your wall.
