Maximize your living space by connecting your indoor and outdoor living areas with beautiful Folding Doors.
Located in Naramata, BC, this breathtaking home features a large dining room surrounded by three sets of Folding Doors. With 180° views of Okanagan Lake, the dining room is a flexible space that can easily be transformed into an outdoor living area by opening three walls. When the Folding Doors are closed, the dining room is flooded in natural light and the stunning views remain uninterrupted.

CTV's Chris Olsen takes a behind the scenes tour of the PNE Prize Home. He praises the easy to use Tilt + Turn operation that combines efficiency, ventilation and security:
"The windows combine efficiency with flexibility and security. If you twist the lever half way up, they swing open wide. Twist it another quarter of a turn and they open from the top, letting air in but not burglars. Pull the lever all the way down and the windows are securely locked."
- Chris Olsen, CTVBC News

The PNE Prize Home is featured in this month's issue of BC Home Magazine entitled 'The Designer Issue'.
Every photo of the beautiful 2010 PNE Prize Home features either an Innotech window, an Innotech door or both. The designers made sure to immerse every room in the home with natural light - from the beautiful great room to the practical laundry room. The large expanses of glass throughout the home also maximize the breathtaking Okanagan views. And with so many windows and doors, it was important to select energy efficient windows and doors to make sure the performance of the home wasn't affected.

Innotech recently completed the installation of Tilt + Turn Windows, Picture Windows and an Entry Door in the Ten Thousand Villages retail location in downtown Langley, British Columbia.
The new black acryl-protect windows and doors nicely complement and instantly modernize the old storefront. The new windows and doors also provide excellent security against casual break-ins - an important benefit for storefronts. The owners are so impressed with their new windows and doors that they plan to replace the double front entry door at the entrance of their building within the next year.
Here are some before and after photos:
Delta street in Ladner Village, BC was transformed into a cartoon-like town for the upcomming Nickelodeon movie The Fairly Odd Parents. One of the main buildings in the fictional town of Dimmsdale - the nicest town on Earth! - features Innotech windows! When not part of the movie set, the building is a new office building that was designed to meet Ladner's heritage construction guidelines.
