Acrylic Block Windows Provide Privacy and Fresh Air
Acrylic block operable windows from Hy-Lite® Products save time and labor while offering home buyers and remodelers a custom, decorative window, according to the manufacturer.
Hy-Lite® Products is headquartered in Beaumont, CA, with an East Coast facility in Eatonton, GA. Its parent company, SBR, Inc., is a member of the National Council of the Housing Industry — the Supplier 100 of NAHB.
Used in both new construction and retrofit applications where ventilation and privacy are important, the windows are available in casement, awning and basement hopper styles.
Unlike glass block windows, the acrylic block windows from Hy-Lite® Products come pre-assembled into complete units, and they are 70% lighter than glass. They are framed in fusion-welded vinyl that the manufacturer says is virtually maintenance free and that will not pit, peel, chalk, flake or crack over time.
