This tall, spectacular window design brings an extraordinary dimension of height to a home. The WC.475 Series is for new construction use and has the superior strength of 4 1/2” frames with brick mold inside our extruded vinyl. The added height can accommodate larger openings. They can be very effectively matched with Vinyl City Casement and Awning window units to create a seamless sense of architectural integrity throughout the home while maximizing the glass sight lines. Architects and home builders have used our High Profile Picture Windows to create some outstanding home designs. The additional height doesn’t compromise any of the exceptional strength and efficiency features found in all Vinyl City windows.

Solar Solutions Glazing Options
Window City’s Solar Solutions glass options provide you with several choices to maximize your energy savings. All our products meet or exceed the Energy Star requirements in Canada. The insulating values improve even further when we apply our gas into the sealed units. The gas is applied right at the time of sealing the unit and is a one of a kind system that allows us to certify the gas content in each and every unit. Our non-conductive Super Spacer (S.S.) also helps to keep the cold or hot from transferring to the interior helping reduce condensation build up in winter.
From blistering heat to frigid cold, your windows and doors could expose you to higher energy costs and damaging UV exposure. Inefficient windows and doors can add 30 to 40% to your yearly heating and cooling costs. Our Solar Solutions glass options allow you to customize the performance of your windows and doors as well as providing safety, security and reduced sound transmission. There are also two tints available for your glass (Bronze, Blue).
Window 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 the 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 (self-cleaning) Glass
Window 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 Window City’s LoĒ® 180 coated glazings, homes stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Window City introduces LoE-i89™, our new energy-saving surface coated the glass. This new coating will be found on the inside surface (room side) where it reflects the escaping heat back into the room, lowering U-factors and meeting the toughest energy guidelines as well. Coupled with our LoE 180 and Argon fill, this double pane unit delivers near triple pane glass performance. What’s more, i89 enhanced performance glass is easy to clean and there is no haze to mar the view, allowing more light to come into the room.
Grilles & Divided Lites
Window City Offers a full selection of Grilles and Divided Lite Options
Grilles and divided light options can add a whole new dimension to the appearance of your home. Window City can create that unique architectural element by customizing either your internal or external grille selections. Custom grilles can be conveniently located between the glass for easy maintenance or for a more traditional look, exterior Simulated Divided Lite (SDL) options are available.
Simulated Divided Lites (SDL)
SDL grilles will provide the traditional look of hand crafted windows while maintaining a single sealed glass unit. The grilles are applied on the outside of the glass, creating the craftsman look. You can choose from various sizes, patterns and color options, all designed to enhance the unique style of your home.
Totally maintenance free, these grilles are inside the insulated glass. The available profiles, colors, and styles can give you a perfect way to add an extra level of decorative detail and styling. They are also available in a variety of color options to match your window color choice.
Our decorative panels, made up of leaded, beveled, grooved or tinted glass provide the ultimate architectural look. Caming options include brass, zinc or patina encased between two panes of glass.
MULLION REINFORCEMENT FOR LARGE WINDOWS
A mullion is a vertical or horizontal connecting unit between two or more windows. Window City uses a patented PVC mullion with steel reinforcement which adds strength, performance, and security. This allows us to produce much larger window units with a mix of both fixed and operating windows.
All Window City products can be customized to meet your exact application requirements with our extensive accessory options that are factory applied and fully integrated into your windows. The possibilities are endless with either standard or custom interior and exterior accessories. We manufacture our own accessories ensuring a perfect fit and finish for all of our products. Our accessories are fully functional for your application and add detail to your windows.
Brickmoulds are available in many sizes from 1” to 4” and are designed to accommodate various specifications.
