Oran 3000 Series Basement Window
Oran’s Basement window is the finishing touch to any window project. The Oran Basement window has been designed for those hard to get at window wells and high ceilings found in many homes. Simple, yet surprisingly efficient, the Oran Basement window is designed around a “raised rail” concept found on many European windows. Both sash panels operate for maximum ventilation and can be easily removed for cleaning.
The Oran Basement window fits any decor without being obtrusive. Custom made to fit any opening, the sleek lines and simple but effective locking system makes this window a perfect finishing touch. A full exterior screen keeps leaves and backyard dirt out and makes cleaning the Oran Basement window a pleasure.

The addition of Argon Gas to the insulating glass of your new window will result in the reduction of heat loss through the glass and an overall increase in energy efficiency of the window.
Argon Gas, most commonly used in household lightbulbs is a clear, non toxic and non flammable gas that is denser than air. The gas is pumped into the air space of the insulating glass unit and displaces the air trapped between the two sheets of glass during the manufacturing process.
Since the thermal conductivity of this inert gas is lower than air, heat loss is reduced and energy efficiency is improved.
One other benefit of Argon Gas is that there is some reduction of sound transmission through the insulating glass unit.
All Glengrove windows may be ordered with internal decorative grills in a range of profiles, colours and patterns.
There are a number of options in bar profiles, sizes and colours.
1/4″ x 5/8″ Flat Aluminum, 3/8″ x 5/8″ Contoured (Georgian) Aluminum, 5/16″ Round Pencil Aluminum and 5/16″ Rectangular Pencil.
Most internal grills are available in White, Cream, Brass and Pewter as well as split colours (different interior and exterior) on the 1/4″ x 5/8″ Flat Aluminum bar.
There are many options that can be added to your Glengrove windows that are not listed above. The following are only a few of the many additions and enhancements that are available.
- Tinted glass available in Bronze or Grey tint
- Custom leaded glass designs

Privacy Glass (Obscure)
Oran carries five stock patterns of obscure glass from which insulating glass units can be made. It is important to understand that in most cases some detail can be seen through ALL obscure glass patterns. The closer you are to the glass the more detail can be seen from the exterior.
- Pinhead: 100% Coverage In A Pattern Resembling Rough Sandpaper.
- Glue Chip: Looks like frost on a sheet of glass, some clear spots.
- Silvit: 100% coverage pattern in vertical, deep rough lines.
- Sycamore: A leaf pattern with some clear areas.
- Flemish: A rippled water effect that is clear and shows a lot of detail.
- Delta: Random ridges and dips with some clear areas.
- Clear Reeded: Vertical lines about 3/4″ wide glass is clear, shows a lot of detail.
- Obscure Reeded: Vertical lines about 3/4″ wide with a 100% rough finish, shows the least detail, much like Pinhead Obscure.
- Clear Georgian Polished Wire: Clear 1/4″ glass with a wire grid in the glass, 100% see through.
- Obscure Georgian Polished Wire: Obscure 1/4″ glass with a wire grid in the glass, some detail will show close up.
- Granite: Rough concrete-like texture, no clear spots but some detail will show.
In Soft Coat Low-E, (sometimes called sputter coated Low-E) there are multiple layers of optically transparent silver sandwiched between layers of metal oxide in a vacuum chamber. This process provides the highest level of performance and a nearly invisable coating.
The advantages of Soft Coat Low-E are:
- highly visible light transmission
- Ultra-low emissivities giving optimum winter “U” values
- up to 70% less UV transmission compared with standard clear glazing
- Opticaly clear with minimal colour haze
