A Brief History
Our company name is Sunshade Products Limited and “Glastar” is the trade name of our sunroom system. In the late 1970’s as a family business involved with awnings, canopies, and patio covers, we recognized the need for screen enclosures to provide people with an insect free environment.
The company started making larger and larger awnings to shade deck areas that were too hot, and then customers began asking to add screens. Customers then asked us to add glass with the screens to keep out the dust and rain. As manufacturing techniques were further developed and refined we incorporated a combination of glass and screen to lengthen our summers while still maintaining the “feeling” of being outdoors.
Utilizing computer assisted design (CAD), prototypes were developed and tested that met or exceeded building codes and regulations. Working with various independent engineering firms, the Glastar Sunroom became the first “floatation system” to be certified by City Of Winnipeg engineers for installation on a non-piled surface.
Honesty and Integrity
The sunroom industry has rapidly grown, and we have seen many companies come and go. As a family business with over 44 years of proven performance and thousands of Glastar Sunroom installations - we pride ourselves in the knowledge that we take care of and satisfy every customer that we deal with.
Customer satisfaction is our ultimate goal - we encourage people to shop around so they know they are getting the best value. Through our ongoing research in design, manufacturing, and installation techniques, we continue to provide families and homeowners with unique, high quality Glastar Sunrooms.
