Tilt and turn windows and doors are versatile European-style windows that can swing open like a door or tilt inward at the top. They are a popular choice because they offer excellent ventilation, security, and ease of cleaning. They’re also energy-efficient and complement modern architectural designs.
Mullions are vertical or horizontal structural elements that divide a window or door into sections or panes. Transoms are horizontal bars that perform a similar function. These elements can be purely decorative or functional.
The U-value measures the heat transfer through a building element, such as a window or door. A lower U-value indicates better insulation and reduced heat loss. It is a critical parameter for assessing the energy efficiency of fenestration products.
Triple-glazed windows, which feature three layers of glass with insulating gas in between, offer superior energy efficiency and thermal performance compared to double-glazed windows. They provide better insulation, reduce energy consumption, and enhance comfort.
Yes, we offer a wide range of customization options, including materials, finishes, colors, hardware, and sizes. You can tailor your fenestration solutions to match your design preferences and architectural style.
When choosing windows and doors, consider factors such as architectural style, material, durability, maintenance requirements, and security features. Your personal preferences also play a significant role in your decision.
Regular maintenance is essential to ensure the longevity and performance of windows and doors. Keep frames and tracks clean, lubricate hinges and hardware, inspect for any leaks or drafts, and replace weatherstripping if damaged.
A transom is a horizontal bar or divider that separates a window or door into multiple sections or panes.
Double-glazed windows consist of two layers of glass with an insulating gas in between.
Low-E (low emissivity) glass has a special coating that reflects heat while allowing light to pass through. It helps improve energy efficiency by reducing heat transfer, making it an important feature for windows.
Condensation occurs due to temperature and humidity differences. To reduce it, improve ventilation and maintain indoor humidity levels.
Lift and slide patio doors are large, sliding glass doors designed to seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor living spaces. They have a unique mechanism that allows the door panels to be lifted off the track slightly, making it easier to slide them open and closed.
Lift and slide patio doors offer numerous benefits, including panoramic views, abundant natural light, ease of operation, and a smooth transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Lift and slide patio doors operate using a specialized handle. Lifting the handle disengages the door panels from the track, allowing them to slide easily. Lowering the handle secures the door panels in the closed position.
The primary difference is in the operation. Lift and slide doors are lifted slightly off the track to make sliding easier, while traditional sliding doors slide along the track without lifting. Lift and slide doors often offer larger panel sizes and a smoother, more effortless operation.
Yes, lift and slide doors can be installed in existing spaces, but some structural modifications may be necessary to accommodate the larger door frames.
Aluminum windows offer several advantages, including high durability, resistance to corrosion, versatility in design, low maintenance, and the ability to accommodate large window sizes.
Aluminum windows are versatile and can be designed to perform well in various climates. Features like thermal breaks and high-quality weatherstripping can enhance their performance.
Maintenance is relatively straightforward. Regular cleaning of the frames and glass with mild soapy water is usually sufficient. Lubricate any moving parts or hardware to ensure smooth operation.
Aluminum and vinyl windows are both popular choices, but they differ in material and appearance. Aluminum windows have thinner frames and a more modern look, while vinyl windows have thicker frames and a different aesthetic.
Custom aluminum windows are made to order, offering more flexibility in terms of design, size, and features. Standard windows come in predetermined sizes and designs.
Our tilt-turn windows feature multipoint locking systems to enhance security.
You can choose from a wide range of color options for your aluminum windows. Popular choices include white, black, gray, and various metallic finishes.
Our windows are versatile and can complement both contemporary and traditional architectural styles. Their sleek design and customization options make them adaptable to various aesthetics.
