ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES OF STANDARD PRODUCT OPTIONS
Versatility is one of the key elements in the Loewen product offering — there are endless possible combinations of standard Loewen products.
In addition to this massive standard selection matrix, Loewen products are available in custom shapes, sizes and configurations.
Each Loewen product, whether standard or custom, may be further personalized by choosing the Loewen Cyprium Collection or through the use of Simulated Divided Lites, exterior casing options and metal clad paint in a variety of colors and finishes. An array of hardware finishes further expands the variety and customization of each window order.
Unlike other window manufacturers, we use only Coastal Douglas Fir (Pseudotsuga Menziesii) or Mahogany in our frames and sashes. These tightly grained woods do more than just give our windows a rich, warm texture — they’re also naturally tough and resilient, yet remarkably workable, meaning they are ideal for precision milling and capable of holding the smallest, most intricate detailing.
To enhance our woods’ high natural resistance to moisture absorption, decay and insect infestation, every Loewen wood component is treated with a water repellant/wood preservative sealant before assembly.
Douglas Fir is North America’s most plentiful softwood species, accounting for one-fifth of the continent’s total softwood reserves. It is extremely beautiful and durable, making it the ideal species for fenestration and a hallmark of the Loewen brand.
COLORS & CLADDING
Loewen uses only pre-finished extruded aluminum cladding to better protect window and door exteriors and eliminate the need for painting. Our thick extruded aluminum cladding retains its shape, resists denting and lasts longer than roll-formed aluminum. In addition, Loewen’s window cladding is set away from the underlying wood, creating an air space that improves thermal performance.
The broad variation in Loewen sizes, shapes and designs and the demanding environmental conditions that our product encounters require an alloy that has the ability to:
- Withstand serious impact without sustaining damage
- Allow intricate extrusion detailing
- Provide the malleability necessary to clad the many sizes and shapes we offer
AAMA 2605 / 70% KYNAR FINISHES
Loewen’s expansive finish palette provides the perfect finishing touch for fulfilling your vision, while also providing industry leading quality and performance to up hold it. Loewen’s paint formula includes 70% Kynar 500 PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) resin, which offers the greatest resistance to weathering, fade and chalking. This ensures a beautiful finish that will last for decades when cared for properly. With their excellent appearance and durability, these paints meet the specifications of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2605.

Selecting a style and finish that reflects your unique taste is a critical part of creating the right look.
But choosing hardware involves more than just appearance — function and operation are essential, which is why Loewen offers a wide range of handles, locking systems and other hardware choices — from the most traditional to the most contemporary. Hardware must also offer intelligent design and flexibility. This is why Loewen provides designs such as the foldaway handle, useful when drapes or blinds fit tight against a window or when access space is limited.
For hard-to-reach windows, optional motorized operators can be activated by a simple wall switch or battery operated remote control.

Loewen Sealed Units offer ideal solutions for any environment. With countless glazing configurations and Low E coating options, we ensure that you can choose the perfect blend of protection and comfort – no matter where you live.
We are proud to introduce the next generation of Heat-Smart® industry leading technologies.
- Loewen standard 1/8” (3 mm) double strength glass offers greater strength and clarity over thinner glass, making our products more insulative, more soundproof, more resistant to impact and considerably more resistant to stresses caused by fluctuations in temperature
- Loewen standard sealed units contain argon gas and machine applied primary and secondary sealants reducing the chance of seal failure, improving argon gas retention, and increasing strength
Heat-Smart® Window Systems offer varying levels of thermal protection. They also protect furnishings by screening out much of the damaging ultraviolet radiation that causes fading and related damage. The charts on the next page show the comparative performance of each Loewen Window System. Heat-Smart® is a high-performance glazing system that offers great thermal value in a variety of climate zones.
Double glazed, with one or more layers of Low E coating and one 1/2” (13 mm) air space filled with argon gas and inserted thermal spacer bar.
Triple glazed, with multiple layers of Low E coatings and two 1/2” (13 mm) air spaces filled with argon gas and inserted thermal spacer bars.
Additional options include a wide variety of novelty glass treatments. These images are a sample of the offerings that can be added to selected Loewen windows and doors. Please contact you local dealer for the full range of options and applications.
DIVIDED LITES & GRILLES
SDL BARS ADD A DISTINCTIVE DESIGN FEATURE to full-size panes of glass. Wood or metal bars securely bonded to the outer surfaces of the sealed glass unit simulate the appearance of traditional true divided lites.
Available with straight or radius bars.
Additional airspace bars (between the glass) complete a convincing reproduction of a multi-paned window or door. Our spacer bars function among the best in the industry and provide an intriguing aesthetic appearance in stainless steel or black color options. Wide shadow bars fill more of the airspace replicating the look of True Divided Lites. Narrow shadow bars also provide a similar appearance while allowing for improved sealed unit performance.
The trim surrounding your windows and doors adds a final (and profound) design element. Loewen offers a variety of attractive brickmould options that allow you to maintain a common stylenote on all exterior elevations.
Factory-applied brickmould adds a matching signature to your home’s windows and doors.
