Okna 800 Series
Rating 5
"All windows operate perfectly and all are uniform in appearance (good Q/C). Super quiet compared to what they replaced. We immediately noticed the absence of the usual drafts and now are seeing better heating efficiency" -Oldranch, IL

" This window has incredible air leakage ratings with a .02. Most people don't about air leakage, it's all about U-factor but most windows lose more energy from leaks than through the glass. Great Window! " -Jared Ray, VA
