Fibertec fiberglass casement windows are a compression sealing window that opens 90 degrees to provide maximum ventilation, easy cleaning, and a superior air / water tightness. Fibertec windows provide one of the most narrow sight lines, thus giving you more glass area. The casement window is more suitable for taller narrower openings. Fibertec carries the most extensive glass options available to cater to extreme weather climates. Anti-corrosion screens are on the inside of the window, which allows 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.Other Styles: 300 Casement Windows: Wood Clad Fiber® Series
