Fibertec fiberglass awning windows are a compression sealing window that opens outwards to provide maximum ventilation even in rainy weather. It also offers easy cleaning, and a superior air/water tightness. Fibertec windows provide one of the narrowest sight lines, thus giving you more glass area. The awning window is more suitable for wider shorter openings. Fibertec carries the most extensive glass options available catering to extreme weather climates. Anti-corrosion screens are on the inside of the window, allowing them to remain clean and protected from the elements. Fibertec has developed a fiberglass window system featuring advanced technology, resulting in one of the world`s best energy-rated systems that is environmentally friendly and is used in sustainable building.
Once installed in your home, Fibertec windows will never warp, twist, rot, shrink or dent.
