Hy-Lite embraces Arts and Crafts

BY HBSDealer Staff

As the Arts and Crafts style continues to gain interest in homes across America, Hy-Lite now offers a Mission style window in a 2' x 2' size. The window is part of the company's Home Designer Collection series. Hy-Lite is a manufacturer of acrylic block, glass block and decorative glass windows.

"We successfully launched the Baroque and Prairie styles in the 2' x 2' size earlier this year," says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. "Once people saw the appeal of those styles in a smaller size we immediately began getting requests for the Mission style window in the same size."

The 2' x 2' windows are proving especially popular when grouped in "threes" to create wall art for a room, the company says. The fixed units can be stacked vertically, run horizontally, or installed in different creative fashions to create eye-catching window creations in larger spaces. The windows can also be used singularly to bring light and design style to smaller spaces in the home, like guest bathrooms, laundry rooms or home office spaces.

A Craftsman-inspired design, the Mission window is constructed with silkscreened tempered privacy glass and clear diamond shapes on the interior. Each window is constructed with a multi-chambered heavy-duty vinyl frame in either white, tan, driftwood or bronze. The windows come with a nail fin or nail fin and J-Channel.

With floor-to-ceiling glass these windows create a seamless wall of glass. These windows feature slim-line direct glaze rectangular frames that maximize the viewing area. Oversized Direct Set Windows are available in both the Weather Shield Contemporary Collection and Premium Series product lines.

 “Our expanded-view glass gives architects and builders more design flexibility to meet homeowner needs,” said Brandon Budimlija, associate product manager. “They are also engineered for greater structural integrity and superior performance.” Oversized Direct Set Windows feature a robust 5/4-inch jamb and a two-part structural sealant that enables these windows to achieve a design pressure rating of +75/-75.
