|Energy Efficiency Values|
|Umet = U-value (W/m_ - K) - The lower the number, the more energy efficient the product.|
|Uimp = U-value (Btu/h*ft2*F) - The lower the number, the more energy efficient the product.|
|SHGC = Solar Heat Gain Coefficient – The higher the number, the higher the solar gain.|
|ER = Energy Rating (W/m2 or dimensionless) – The higher the number, the more energy efficient the product.|
|The ER (Energy Rating) format was changed to all positive numbers (dimensionless) in October, 2004 by CSA (Canadian Standards Association) to address consumer confusion over negative numbers. The older format had a mixture of negative and positive numbers (W/m2). In our listings, all ER numbers that appear in the older format are shown in bold coloured type. An approximate conversion to the new format can be made by adding 33 to these numbers.|

SafeGard™ Casement Window Opening Control Device (WOCD)
The industry’s first casement – Window Opening Control Device (WOCD) that meets the requirements of ASTM F2090-10. This innovative hardware system provides safe and secure operation of egress style windows critical in today’s building projects. Multiple safe guards are in place to help control the window opening to prevent accidental falls while at the same time allowing easy operation in the event of an emergency. Typical operation limits the opening of the sash to less than 4". An additional operation is required to open the window fully for egress purposes. This additional operation can be performed without the use of keys, or special tools and the SafeGard™ casement – WOCD will automatically re-latch when the sash is fully closed.
