The OSLO Team has always been on the cutting edge of product performance improvement

 We were first to introduce the North American market to:

1.    1982, The Tilt and Turn Window, Euro-French door, Lift Slide Door, and Exterior Folding Door Systems, soon publishing nationally in Sweets Catalogue.

2.    1994, Engineered a vertical hung monumental window to meet a new Federal specification performance level of grade 60.

3.    1998, Engineered a true Euro Out-Swing Casement Window that now achieves the highest performance levels for out-swing casements in the industry.

4.    2000, First and only company to use a structural wet glazing method that improves wind load resistance and has proven 100% wood to glass leak proof.

5.    Early 2008, we started field testing our Green wood window products in several exposures on Cape Cod at the new residence pictured above.  This is a new roasted wood product, achieving unheard of standards for decay resistance, dimensional stability, water resistance, and many resource and ecological advantages.

Roasting wood is a new, high temperature, vacuum kiln, technology used to modify the chemical structure of wood in order to achieve characteristics that, up to now, were present only in very few wood species, most of them tropical species: Teak, tropical cedar, and mahogany.


        Below is an example of OSLO-America’s EURO OUT-SWING casement window made with yellow birch, roasted to a stunning dark walnut color; (click below to see other sample colors). It can be made with double sashes that open with no center post, articulating stainless steel hinges allow for easy cleaning from inside. Sashes are fastened with lever operated, multipoint locking. With this model a roll-down screen is hidden in the head, and certified lab tests prove it to be the highest performance out-swing casement in the industry. OSLO’s French doors are engineered to the same design standards.


HIGH PERFORMANCE Certified lab tests at ASTN E 1996 - 08 test procedure for Hurricane Zone 3, Missile impact and cycling pressures applied based on wind speeds up to 140 MPH, (55 psf) . Wind cycle tested to differential pressures imposed by  ASTM procedure: 9,000 times (4,500 positive, 4,500 negative.)
