Even better than seeing the Kento difference in an image here, you’ll feel the difference with every Kento window in your home or business!
Comfort and Comfort Select series
Kento has designed two distinct lines of windows so that you can choose the system that best meets your preferences and needs. The Comfort and Comfort Select series are both available for casement, awning, single hung, and single slider windows. Whether your priorities are speed and value, or the ability to design your own unique windows, Kento gives you a clear choice…
Kento’s Comfort series of windows blends convenience, style, and exceptional value. Frames are assembled as an integrated unit, saving you the time and cost of having your windows custom made. Choose from either a J or Brickmould with nailing fin. The 3⁄4” interior return is built into the frame.
Comfort Select series
Kento’s Comfort Select series of windows is manufactured to allow more flexibility in your window design. Comfort Select is a modular system, which means you decide how to combine the styles and shapes of the individual components and trim options. Like the Comfort Series, the 3⁄4” interior return is built into the frame.
Both series feature:
- 3 1⁄4” all-PVC frame with integrated installation bracket track.
- Fusion-welded corners for superior strength.
- Internal glazing stops for security and easy replacement of glass.
- A 3⁄4” or 7⁄8” overall dual-seal insulated glass unit with warm-edge Duralite Spacer for greater energy savings.
Which Window will Weather Your Weather?
Kento Windows are designed to handle all extremes of Newfoundland and Labrador’s weather, from the winter’s bitter cold and savage winds to the summer sun that can surprise us all with their scorching heat.
Add the ocean’s relentless salt spray in coastal communities, and you’ve got a torture test that would strike fear in any homebuilder’s heart. Consider the chart below to help choose the best window for your weather!
Standard Features for Vented Casement & Awning Windows
Kento casement windows include folding handles on the operators. These handles can be folded when the window is opened or closed, avoiding any interference with drapes, blinds, or little curious hands.
Windows with the multi-point locking option lock in multiple locations, providing a tight seal, enhanced energy efficiency, and security, all with a single lever operator at the bottom
of the window for easy locking and unlocking.
Snubbers are installed on the hinge side of larger casement windows. They keep the hinge side of the sash tight to the frame for better performance, and are concealed between the sash and frame to provide a clean appearance.
Any open window in Newfoundland and Labrador needs a screen to keep out the mosquitoes! Still, when it’s time to do some cleaning or just get all the breeze you can, Kento’s screens are easy to remove and then snap securely back into place.
Stainless Steel Hinges
Opening and closing a window exerts tremendous pressure on the hinges. Exposure to the elements also exacts a toll.
Kento uses stainless steel hinges to keep your windows operating smoothly, reducing the chances of a window becoming stuck. Summer or winter, you’ll feel the difference, because quality is always in season at Kento.
Options for All Windows
Sealed between two panes of glass, internal blinds give you the convenience and style of mini-blinds without worry of damage, dust, or dangerous cords.
Installed inside the sealed glass unit to keep them clean, our aluminum grills give your windows a range of grid patterns, shapes, and colours.
False Meeting Rails
Add the look of a transom or single-hung window to your casement window! The rails are installed on both sides of the glass to give you new style.
