Earthwise Windows Wins Readers’ Choice Awards for Best Window System.
These windows and doors are available from your local Showcase dealer for new construction, replacement and remodeling applications.
The single-hung window is a traditional style that opens by raising the bottom sash. The top glass in single-hung windows is fixed in place. Features include:
- Fixed meeting rail for structural stability
- Easy installation due to fewer moving parts
- Excellent thermal performance and energy efficiency
In addition, our insulated glass system, our vinyl technology, and our premium weatherstripping help keep energy bills low.
Also a traditional style, popular double-hung windows open by raising the bottom sash or lowering the top sash of the window. The double-hung window from Showcase offers:
- Ventilation from top or bottom of the window (or both)
- Both sashes tilt in for easy cleaning from inside your home
- Sashes can be easily removed for any needed repairs
Single and Double-Pane Glider Windows
Glider windows open by sliding the operable sash toward the center of the window. Our Earthwise custom-made windows have a gliding single or double pane (sometimes called a “lite”). These can be manufactured so that either the left or right sash is operable.
The Earthwise brand from Showcase gives you:
- An operable sash which glides on high‐quality rollers
- A fixed meeting rail to provide superior structural stability
Casement and Awning Windows
Both casement and awning windows are hinged and open outward with a rotary crank handle. Casement windows open from the side while awning windows open at the bottom.
These types of windows offer you:
- Unobstructed viewing areas
- Maximum ventilation
Picture Windows and Other Fixed Styles
Picture windows are stationary and cannot be opened. This is called a “fixed” window. Fixed windows are often used as a main feature, providing unobstructed views while allowing a large amount of natural light indoors. Picture windows can be used alone or in a grouping with other window styles.
Smaller fixed Accent Windows include:
- Transom windows—used as accents around larger windows
- Geometric shapes which are also popular as accent windows and include half-rounds, quarter-rounds, triangles and more
Bay and Bow Windows
What’s the difference between a bay and a bow window? The bay window protrudes farther from a wall than a bow window, which is shaped in a gentle curve.
The bay window creates more open space. The most popular configuration is a central fixed window flanked by two other windows, usually casement or double-hung styles which permit ventilation.
Bow windows contain four or more windows. The windows join to form a gentle “bow” shape. Similar to a bay configuration, the center bow of the window typically fixed while the side windows are operable.
Both bay and bow windows offer these features:
- Project outward from the room for a dramatic look
- Allow for plenty of natural light
Our patio doors maximize light while providing thermal efficiency, security and ease-of-operation. Choose from a selection of distinctive colors, grid patterns and decorative hardware options. Showcase Windows and Doors builds Earthwise sliding glass doors with a millwork look which makes for an attractive finish to your home. These are available in 2, 3 and 4-panel configurations.
