  • A1: Required standard for low-level dwellings and small commercial establishments
  • A2: Required standard for average- and large-size dwellings, institutions and establishments
  • A3: Required standard for high energy efficiency institutions and commercial establishments

Water Proofing

REGIONAL windows have a B7 performance rating (700 Pa).

  • B1: Required standard for temperate climatic conditions
  • B2: Required standard for harsh climatic conditions
  • B3: Required standard for extreme climatic conditions
  • B7: Exceeds standards

Wind Load Resistance

REGIONAL windows have a C5 performance rating (5.0 kPa).

  • C1: Required standard for weak wind loads
  • C2: Required standard for average wind loads
  • C3: Required standard for strong wind loads
  • C5: Exceeds standards

Heat Loss Factor (U Factor)

The U factor represents the overall heat loss rate. The lower the U factor, the slower the air transfers from a warm area to a cold area. The U.S. Department of Energy and Natural Resources Canada have defined climatic zones and assigned to them required performance values for window products.

REGIONAL windows have a low enough U factor to be efficient in harsh conditions (D type climatic zones).
