UPVC windows and doors have undeniable advantages over traditional wood or aluminum clad wood windows: The material does not deteriorate, is completely resistant to salt, allows steel reinforcements to be inserted into the profiles to maximize strength and hurricane resistance, and with dozens of wood grain laminations looks almost like finished wood windows. However, the catch is "almost." The trained eye of a designer or architect can recognize a UPVC window from miles away by the tell-tale 45 degree miter. Because vinyl windows have to be welded in the corners and because the profiles are hollow, the miter will always be in a 45 degree angle. Custom wood windows are finger joined in 90 degree angles.
Well, dear customers, designers, and architect friends, Henselstone wants to dare you to tell the difference on this newest development. These windows and doors look, feel, and work like high-end custom products from Germany, but they are maintenance free, hurricane rated, steel reinforced with multiple locking mechanisms.
