OptiCore® Technology

Commercial-Grade Frame Technology

Quaker’s® patented OptiCore® technology defines the next evolution in thermal, structural and sound transmission performance for windows, while allowing for application flexibility that is changing the face of architectural window design. While OptiCore technology was previously available to Quaker’s commercial and luxury products, we’re proud to present OptiCore to Quaker’s residential lines. The Quaker CityVu and TimberVu series of windows feature OptiCore technology.

Unparalleled Energy Efficiency

The OptiCore frame design provides exceptional energy efficiency and thermal performance values that are unequalled in the industry.

A Difference You Can Feel

OptiCore technology features architecturally enhanced aluminum, which combined with an Azo-Core™ thermal barrier reaches some of the lowest emissivity levels (known as U-factor) available in a frame design. The EnergyEnhanced glass package, working together with OptiCore, creates a comfy interior space even during the coldest weather. All CityVu and TimberVu windows exceed ENERGY STAR requirements in all 50 states.

Exceptional Sound Performance

Outside noise from traffic and neighbors can affect your daily comfort levels and even your sleep patterns. OptiCore® technology is one of the easiest ways to reduce or eliminate this outside noise pollution.

Quaker offers a variety of glass packages designed specifically to reduce the amount of sound transmitted through your windows by up to 25%, creating a more comfortable and healthier environment for you and your family.

Ease of Installation

Quaker windows are designed and manufactured to make installation easier. Our windows arrive with an integral miter cut continuous nail fin built into the frame, which surrounds the whole unit. You do not have to worry about open gaps around the window, or uneven fins. Quaker also offers a variety of receptor, subsill and panning options for more intricate installations.

The series can be easily factory-mulled or set up as a multiple unit in one continuous master frame. This immediately adds value in the form of ease of installation and less costly field labor.
