WHAT IS PONDEROSA PINE?

Ponderosa pine also known as “Western Yellow Pine”, is the largest of the western pine species which grows in the southern interior of British Columbia. Having a straight trunk and usually growing up to 25 to 30 metres tall with a diameter of 2 metres, it is a large-crowned tree.

The wood is generally straight-grained and uniform in texture. Common uses of ponderosa pine include furniture; window and door sashes, mouldings, and frames; panelling and shelving.

Aluminum cladding

 

Our aluminum cladding

Easy to care for and robust in the long-term, our aluminum cladding offers aesthetics while simultaneously matching your Martin’s wood products. The thickness of our extrusions is largely superior to the aluminum sheet offered on the market which provide you with a maximum durability and an increased protection of your wood.

ALUMINUM EXTRUSION:
DURABILITY AND EASE OF MAINTENANCE

  • Combines the solidity of exterior cladding with the nobility of interior wood.
  • The thickness of our extrusions is far superior to that of sheet aluminum on the market
  • Easy to maintain and corrosion-resistant
  • Recyclable: an asset for the environment

 

Paint colours - Martin's Inspiration

Like everything else we produce, our painting process is highly controlled and rigorous.

Our extrusions are painted with 3 coats of high-quality acrylic polyurethane paint. Our baked-on paint gives optimum results in terms of appearance, durability and corrosion resistance.

We apply the paint before assembling our products, which enhances the quality of the finish. Our paint recipes are meticulously designed and engineered for impeccable precision, using environmentally-friendly ingredients.

 

Unlimited choice of colours

Our colorists can also develop the colour of your choice from the name and colour code of a recognized paint manufacturer, or from a colour sample. This gives you the freedom to let your imagination run wild. Here's an overview of our aluminum colours:

Finish equal to that of high-end furniture

Stain colours - Martin’s Inspiration

Applying a stain before assembling your windows and doors is not only a way to remarkably protect the wood, but also a great method to highlight its unique richness and beauty.

Being a natural, warm and versatile material, the resistance and durability of the wood will considerably be enhanced by the application of one of our rich and durable stains.

Factory applied, our stain is then protected by coats of protective varnish providing a level of quality that is simply flawless!

ENHANCES AND PROTECTS THE BEAUTY OF WOOD

Wood is a noble, warm and versatile material. Carefully protected by a quality stain, its resistance and durability are enhanced.

 

UNRIVALLED PROTECTION AGAINST WEATHERING AND UV RAYS

Our stain creates a veritable shield. The natural oils and resins in this stain infiltrate the wood's cellular structure to form a long-lasting protective barrier.

 

WATER-BASED STAIN: ANOTHER STEP TOWARDS PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

By introducing water-based stain products, Martin is a forerunner in its ongoing efforts to support sustainable development.

Energy efficient glass

 

A superior energy performance!

In addition to the Energy Star® standard, which is used to assess the energy performance of your windows and doors, we also recommend that you consult the harmonized North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS), more commonly referred to as "structural performance testing".

The NAFS standard evaluates a window or door's resistance to climatic elements such as wind, as well as its air and water tightness.

In Canada, the minimum requirements of this standard are specified according to your locality, and are based precisely on your region's climatic conditions.

Before purchasing your product, we strongly suggest that you validate the minimum performance category (PC) required by both your geographical location and the immediate surroundings of your home (location, product height, type of terrain, etc.).

Find your minimum PC easily with Fenestration Canada's Performance Calculator.

 

COMBINING AN INNOVATIVE GLASS UNIT AND AN ULTRA-EFFICIENT SPACER

To reduce energy consumption, Martin uses as standard energy efficient Low-E glass (4.2) with Argon gas combined to an air-tight spacer. Many of our products are ENERGY STAR® approved.

 

ADVANTAGES

  • Reduces heat loss in winter
  • Keeps the interior cooler in the summer
  • Reduces heating and air conditioning costs between 5% and 15%
  • Prevents textile surfaces discoloration
  • Helps to keep a balanced humidity level in the house

INSULATING GLASS

The Sungate® 400 Low-E and argon energy efficient glass unit increases your comfort in many ways. This superior quality glass keeps you warm during winter’s cold nights and cool during the hot summer days. While allowing in the benefits of natural light, it also ensures a high level of energy efficiency.

ENERGETIC AND STRUCTURAL PERFORMANCE

ENERGY STAR® AND NAFS STANDARDS

When evaluating energy performance ratings for your doors and windows, in addition to adhering to Energy Star®’s standards, it is important to refer to the harmonized standard set by the North American Fenestration Standard (NAFS). The NAFS specification is more commonly known under the name of “structural performance tests.”

As well as evaluating air and water tightness, the NAFS standard evaluates a door or window’s resistance to natural elements such as strong winds.

In Canada, the standard’s minimum requirements are determined according to your region and its weather conditions.

Prior to purchase, it is important to confirm the minimum required Performance Grade (PG) for your region and the surroundings of your home (location, product height, type of land, etc.).

Easily get your minimum PG with the Fenestration Canada’s performance calculator.
