FAQ

Why Quick Shield Windows?
Our non-glass windows are an ideal way of enclosing any outdoor area to provide protection from wind, rain, insects, allergens, and the sun.  This product offers the flexibility of either a screened room retreat or a protected enclosure allowing you to extend the enjoyment of the outdoor seasons.

 

What are Quick Shield windows made of?
Our windows are constructed with powder-coated aluminum frames that surround our heavy duty, light weight sliding window panels. Our flexible vinyl pane windows feature durable weather-resistant, 10 mil vinyl panes that can be quietly raised or lowered with ease in our PVC track.  The durability of the vinyl is unsurpassed.  If the vinyl is stretched or dented it will return to its original shape in minutes.

 

Why should we use Quick Shield Windows?
This innovative product offers you an inexpensive alternative to glass windows.  Our non-glass vinyl windows are a popular choice for renovations as they are durable, light weight and easy to install.  Our customized approach ensures that your enclosure will be one of a kind, offering you the ability to choose the exact dimensions of your windows.
These windows have the ability to provide up to 70% air flow when open and offer protection from the elements when closed.  Our windows are an easy way to add value to your home, cottage or gazebo by increasing the square footage and providing visual appeal.  The end result is always a beautiful and comfortable retreat that you can enjoy.

 

Can enclosed sunrooms be used all year round?
Our windows will block out wind, rain, sun and snow.  Most customers comfortably enjoy their sunroom for at least 3 seasons of the year, when temperatures drop a space heater can be used for additional comfort.

 

What is the difference between Vertical Sliders and Horizontal Sliders?
Vertical Slider windows slide up and down to open and close and provide up to 70% ventilation.  Horizontal Sliders slide to the left and right and provide up to 50% ventilation.

 

What are Fixed Panels?
Fixed panels are custom sized windows that don`t include the sliding panels or screen.  They are ideal for hard to reach locations or unusual shaped spaces, even triangular shaped windows.  These windows are custom sized and are colour matched to our other window products.  They are constructed with the same heavy duty powder coated frames enclosing our light weight 10 mil vinyl panes.

 

How do you clean these windows?
Simply wipe the windows with a soft cloth and a mix of lukewarm water and a mild detergent like Woolite.  Do not use ammonia, bleach or chlorine based cleaning solutions.

 

Can you completely remove the window portion to achieve 100% ventilation?
Yes, all of our panels are spring loaded and can be removed with ease to achieve a100% screen opening.  Our spring loaded panels offer you the most convenient option for removing the window panes and enjoying a screened enclosure.

 

Why are spring loaded panels a better option?
Our spring loaded panels outperform our competition.  Our product has been manufactured since 1986.  In the past we offered both spring loaded and pin systems.  Our experience confirmed that spring loaded panels are the most reliable option and that pin systems were more problematic and didn’t offer the same longevity.  We exclusively offer spring loaded panels as it is a superior product that our customers can trust.

 

How flexible is the vinyl?
The flexible vinyl can withstand many disturbances, kicking, punching etc.  If the flexible vinyl becomes distorted it will return to its regular shape after a few minutes.  In the event of a tear in your vinyl, a replacement piece can be inexpensively purchased and easily repaired.  This innovative product is ideal for those who have children or live near a golf course.

 

Who can install these?
Our easy installation instructions make this product simple for anyone to install.  If you are unprepared for a do-it-yourself project, contact your local dealer to assist you in the process.  In most cases an average 10 x 10 room with a roof would take 6-8 hours to install based on the window openings being framed in ahead of time.  Our product is well designed to make the installation process easy and inexpensive.

 

What is the difference between inside and outside mount windows?
Inside mount windows are typically used in highrise buildings where the installer does not have the ability to install them from the outside due to the height of the building.  Inside mount windows have the flange on the inside of the windows.  Outside mount windows are installed from the exterior of the building and have the flange on the outside of the room.
