Casco's Porch Enclosure System creates a different solution to a traditional Midwest household dilemma. Local weather brings humid summers with insects and frigid winters with harsh snow. Patios take a beating year after year with homeowners being able to enjoy them for only a small portion of the year. The Casco Porch Enclosure System allows interchangeable glass and screen panels to be traded as needed without any carpentry or deconstruction of the patio. Leave the screens in throughout warm months to create an insect free outdoor retreat. In the winter, change the screens to glass panels and create a snow free outdoor oasis.

Energy Efficient Coated Glass
LoE-x89® is a neutral color exterior glass surface coating (indium tin oxide) which reduces outdoor glass condensation. LoE-x89® is designed to be used on surface #1 to reduce heat loss and the occurrence of the glass falling below the dew point. This reduces the opportunity for exterior condensation to occur. In addition, LoE-x89® has a titanium dioxide coating which keeps the exterior glass surface cleaner for a longer period.
Tempered safety glass and Plexiglass are available in lieu of standard annealed glass.
Oftentimes used in bathrooms, mud rooms, and utility areas, specialty glass provides different levels of privacy while still allowing light into a room.
To obtain a quote on the Casco Porch Enclosure System, provide width and height dimensions of the opening. From that size, 1/2" is deducted from overall opening sizes to ensure a proper fit into a finished opening.
Installation of the Casco Porch Enclosure System can be done differently based on how/where it is being installed. Below are two examples of suggested installation techniques.
Option 1 - Receptor
Using the optional Casco supplied receptor system (F-Channel), screw through the available fin with the supplied self tapping screws.
Option 2 - Field Stop
Using material of selection, or the structure itself, place the frame into the opening and pinch it (stop) between two pieces of material nailing it into the opening.
For larger openings, using the optional Casco supplied mullion channel (H-Channel) allows homeowners to create floor to ceiling glass systems without the need to add supplemental supports for frames. Advantages of breaking up expansive openings include: smaller and lighter glass units to handle, smaller and stronger screens to cope with turbulent winds or weather, and the ability to reduce glass cost by only adding safety glass where needed.
